    Hello Rachel! How are you? I love baths, but I tend to fall asleep in them! This drawing is so dreamy and relaxing. I like the clean lines. You must be a happy person, it just shows in your lines, curves and colors!

    There seems to be a bath theme swirling around me lately! I have seen many posts on baths lately and actually took one yesterday (which is something I never get a chance to do). Great piece!

    Oh, damn Rachel. Words seem to constantly fail me when I’m looking for one to describe what my heart feels like inside. How to contain all the beauty? By letting it out, of course.

    So, here we go…this so rocks! The leg, the color, the bubbles, the words. Your rock my world, my insides–my everything.

    Sending oodles of love your way.

  9. It’s like you follow my mind and do pictures of it. β™₯ Or for it… either way.

  10. One of my best moments of the day ! I love it!

  12. Sing it, sistah! This is what I should be doing right now. I don’t think I’ve soaked in a tub in years! Hmmm….. gotta remedy that.

  13. Dee says:

    it’s totally fantastic. Every sweet line.

  22. Yael says:

    Sometimes we forget how precious life is, or we do not pay attention. We might me so busy with “life”, that we do not notice the beauty of it anymore. Taking a hot bath, a real decadent one with all the good stuff, like the candles and fragrant bath salts and scented soaps, a glass of wine maybe and some music – oh yes, that could surely remind us!! πŸ™‚

    Sweet drawing Rachel – I too like the leg leisurely dangling over the top… I bet she is humming!

  23. …oh to engage in the
    precious now like I do when
    I slip into a tub for some soaking!
    How you’re able to splash such beauty
    and light with such accuracy and precision
    is wildly wonderful, rachel!
    I’m always amazed.
    And changed.
    And recharged.
    Newly grateful for the preciousness
    of this moment~thank you for that.
    May all of your moments be extra shiny
