Pictures of the Process | Cara Rosalie Olsen
A common issue we come across as makers, artists, creators, HUMANS is that we focus an unbelievable amount of our energy in believing that we can only be one thing. Along with giving more than a bit of watercolor envy, Cara Rosalie Olsen proves to us that’s okay to have multiple passions…and carry them all well.
When I was a little, I wanted to be an opera singer. Like every prepubescent child, I found that with a little concentration and a very deep breath, I could easily match the octave of those beautiful women belting out incoherent syllables.
Much to their dismay, whenever possible, which was pretty much always, I would go around chirping and screeching and bleating and blasting, shattering anything that had the misfortune of being within 10 feet for me.
And I was just sitting here, a moment ago, listening to a song called The Literal Heart, which is sung by a band called Penny and Sparrrow. I was looking out my window, beyond which the boughs on an enormous birch tree were bending, almost frantically, the way an unskilled court jester might bow to a disapproving king, I found myself caught up.
Accompanying each of her amazing works is a well thought out caption that shows Cara’s writer side…as well as her process both mental and artful. It’s true brilliance!
If you’re looking for someone to add to your Instagram feed who’s not only going to fit your aesthetic but also pique your creativity, following Cara is an absolute must.
