Hello Rick and Maria,

Welcome to Day 04 of Bijou's Be Well Bundle video series!

"Small, deliberate actions inspired by your true desires create a life you love."

- Danielle LaPorte

Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” - Dolly Parton

We asked Bijou what he thought about when we decided to use "Deliberate Strokes" as one of his Bijouisms. He responded with a few descriptive words, "Careful, intentional, meaningful, and purposeful are all things that come to mind when I think about deliberate strokes."

He paused and shared a little more, "I would love this Bijouism to inspire and remind artists to allow themselves to pour their hearts into each stroke that goes down on their tile. I want them to embrace all of the unique imperfections that make their mark theirs."

"As an artist, they should learn to own each stroke as theirs and only theirs and develop a sense of awareness of how important they are to this process." Bijou added, "I always loved Dolly Parton's quote above as it took me a while to discover who I was, but once I did, I realized how important it was for me to be me ... purposefully, proudly and deliberately."

Today we share with you the tangle hollibaugh.


Be well, be you,
