Adventures in ARTJADEN : The Artmaking

Back in the studio after spending the morning @portlandartmuseum with @kandyceking !! Amazing works by painter Diebenkorn and exhibition The Shape of Speed (all dem sweet cars). We love it when we are sketching and conversations start. Met a German man who grew up in Poland during the Nazi regime. He told stories of being pushed around to various parts of Germany after his childhood. He is now a retired engineer, calling US home since 1984. We said 'Auf Wiedersehen' upon the end of the conversation. He started to walk away, turned back with a genuine smile, and responded 'Auf Wiedersehen'. #goodday #sketchit #wip #design #portlandartmuseum #automobile #shapeofspeed

Behind the scenes of ARTJADEN! Everything we do starts with making observations and having conversations in and out of the city. We draw out our everyday experiences. We use pen to paper and illustration our findings. We enjoy being connected to people and places that we find ourselves in. This is truly the art of our becoming. Take a look inside our studio, watch as we walk past inspiring street art, and see into the drawings that make up silkscreen apparel. It is all done by hand. It is all uniquely our designs. We really believe in working this way! Video by @kripsa .

Little side note from the gal behind ARTJADEN. When I started my business I didn't always take time for myself. Got wrapped up in 'all the things to do'. A good friend asked me to take one day a week, and not work. Rest and get off the social medias. Get outside, get moving. And not getting busy in a different way. But to remind myself of what I am made of. Whose I am. Why my heart beats the way it does. To breathe and be assured that goodness is present. And that joy can be found amidst failures and bad days. That in everything there is purpose. So just over a year ago I started dancing. Not for anyone, but just for myself. I can't say I am super awesome at it, but I give it my all. And I feel more alive when I am moving my body. And this is something to celebrate. This living, and moving, and breathing. There has been a lot of talk about self care. I honestly turn to Jesus. I am trying to be present to my own needs so that I can be present for others. I am here just doing my best. Picking up one foot at a time. Trying to keep in step with the music. All you beautiful people, friends and followers alike, what makes you come most alive?!! Now is the time we can share in our stories. I just wanted to say I am thankful for you. All of you. I see you and I love you. – love Abigail Renola #wroteanovel #dance #live #move #breathe #girlboss
