caseyruth FINALLY finished this commission a few days ago. It's 20x20 on a wood panel, with a watercolor stain, acrylic, liquid leaf, and silver/gold leaf for accents. Ultimately a fun and rewarding piece. I feel like I'm finally catching up with all of the work I need to do and it's such a relief! 2d

caseyruth Today's work. A fun little piece to match the #hamsa from a while back. I decided to give myself a break from yupo paper this time so the lines are much cleaner. #om #copic 1mon
  •   frakfraco What's it mean? 1mon
  •   caseyruth @frakfraco that's such an excellent question! The center symbol is Om, a mantra used in meditation. It's supposed to embody the essence of the universe and all creation. But really it's so beyond that, it's worth reading about. It's also used widely in prayer. 1mon

caseyruth I made a batch of buttermilk biscuits from the September issue of @bonappetitmag for Dustin's birthday brunch. We slathered them with honey butter and let me just say... They were scrumptious. Happy belated birthday @xdorkx #bareaders 1mon

  •   caseyruth @mahyar not right this second of course, but we are hoping to have a plan very soon. My mother just moved to Camas, WA which is right across the river and we would like to move asap. Obviously it all depends on work. 2mon

caseyruth My grandfather recently died and to distract myself from being sad for a little while I decided to paint one of the cute birds we saw in New Zealand. It wasn't until later that @antsinpants told me that in Maori culture, the fantail represents death. One of life's little inside jokes, I suppose. 7mon

caseyruth I have been wonderfully absent from Instagram while adventuring with @antsinpants in New Zealand, but this really deserves a post. On Monday (Sunday for everyone at home) we went to #hobbiton! It was AMAZING! Everything was completely magical and the attention to detail is just incredible. Of you're A fan or fanatic of LOTR, add New Zealand to your bucket list. #carusosinlove 7mon
