This is one of my favorite monastic prayers. I don’t remember where it’s from… if you do, please let me know!! I hope you enjoy the new painting.


grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

courage to change the things I can

and wisdom to know the difference.” amen.

I’m so in love with it, but I keep seeing things that need to be fixed so who knows if I’ll put it on etsy :) i think i need to add more detail to the girl’s arms and hands. they don’t feel finished. and i played with encaustic so i’m afraid i made it a little too messy. but this is just me being judging myself too hard. what do you think?
