Last week, @photographerjanie took over the @artstew52 account and proposed a challenge: We would suggest a color or a word, and she would write a poetic snippet based on that word in regards to smell, since the Art Stew 52 prompt of the week was "Favorite Smell."
I chose the word "acceptance," and Janie wrote this beautiful poem: The smell of your detergent / And the hug / That told me more than words / That I was loved. ❤️
It touched my heart so deeply, I was compelled to sink myself into these words, spend time with them, and illustrate them.
Thank you so much, Janie, for your inspiring words and for filling my heart with so much meaning and acceptance! 🤗
