September Spotlight

Featured Artist

Rick Hilton

Rick Hilton’s art proves that great gifts come in small packages. He paints and depicts miniature coastal art on tiny canvases, rocks, and seashells. His seascapes exhibit intricate details and feature color palettes reminiscent of easy flowing blue skies and water with hues of a golden sun. Hilton’s artistic hobby started in 2014 when he discovered his love for painting. Leading with an intuitive approach, Hilton draws on his imagination for inspiration as well as his love of surfing. Be sure to check out his sea-inspired art around the shop and on Instagram @rickhiltonart.

Transition in Life

Soon we will say goodbye to summer and witness the cycle of life, death, and rebirth repeat. We feel the changes and we, too, transform and shed behind our old selves. We cannot change the circumstances of this cycle, resist it, or deny it. We must feel it through the body and soul, and we must honor it. We understand that the only thing we can change is ourselves. The only thing we have power over is how we respond to the transition. So while the leaves fall and the trees become bare, sense this peace and calm in the air. That sense of trust in knowing nature will do what it has always done and we will always be safe through the transition into the next chapter of life.
