Embrace your seasons...

I wrote a poem around six years ago that dealt with some of the darker places in my life, and decided the other day that I'd like to put it into paint.  I hope it speaks to you, as it did me. 
Embrace Your Seasons, original mixed media artwork by Katie Holmes.

"For though it is the spring that makes you beautiful,
it was the winter that made you strong."


  1. Really like this. The only alternative if you don't become stronger through trials is to become bitter. I choose strong!
    Thx for sharing.

  2. Thanks, Cathy! I choose strong, too. :)

  3. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this.
    Can I use it as an image on my heartwork blog? Full attribution back to you and a link--
    Please say no if you have any misgivings, and say yes if it resonates as a good place to be seen.

    No matter what, I love this brave and beautiful piece!

  4. Katie,
    This is gorgeous! Love it and it is so true! Are you making a business out of your craftiness?

  5. Thanks, Alana! I'm hoping to start posting some prints and original artwork on order to financially support my new art habit, of course! :) I'm glad you like it! :)
