I have been trying to create some sweet flower fairies, what do you think? It's always nice to have some characters in your portfolio and it's not something I have had a lot of experience with but, thought I would give it a try. I would like to create a series of these so, here is the first Sweet Wishes Fairy.
I love this quote, and think that is one of the reasons I love the Fall so much. The changing season between Summer and Fall always awakens my spirit. It reminds me that I am alive and I get a renewed sense of purpose. I am optimistic for the first time in a very long time about my health and life and that feels really good. It is making me think about all of the things I have put off over the last decade because I wasn't well enough.... I need to really think about how to proceed with purpose and start living the dreams that I have put off for so long. Happy Fall, dear friends.
I am loving this necklace my friend Melissa Schulz made for me! It is double sided so it is like having two necklaces in one. Check out some of her other work here. Thanks Melissa, and yes, my head is in the clouds : )
Fall is on my mind. The crispness in the air has already started and I saw some changing leaves the other day which brought an instant smile to my face. Soon, the colors and fragrances of Fall will follow and open the door to my favorite time of year....winter. Wintertime is so magical to me. I know that is strange when looking at my art but, it's true. I can't wait to say hello to my bare tree branches that comfort me all winter long.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the new paintings I have been working on. I will be sharing finished pieces in the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
I created this image for my "about you" page on my website and blog and always loved it. The quote is by Georgia O'keeffe and is one of my favorites, it describes the way I feel about my work perfectly and has such special meaning to me. A fellow artist and blogger suggested today that I turn it into a print and I thought that was a great idea! Thanks Kathleen.
Hello, my friends! It has been far too long. I am finished my treatments and sadly, I am not feeling any better yet, maybe a bit worse. But, enough is enough. I need to put this illness in it's place and start living my life again. I am tired of talking and thinking about it and am ready to move on. I will continue to look for new ways to beat this Lyme disease but, need to redirect my energy to more positive and fun things. I have a big year coming up and I need to start getting ready for it! I have decided to show at Surtex this year and really have my work cut out for me. I have a lot of planning and creating to do and can't wait to get started! I will be sharing this journey with you here. I have plans of kicking off my big year in November ( I am waiting out a contract) when that is over, the sky is the limit.... well, let's not say that. There is no limit! The Universe is an abundant place, it is boundless!
I haven't started painting yet, I am just getting back into my freelance work so, I dug through my files to share something not so new with you. Well, I guess it is new since no one has seen it yet. I hope you're having a great week. Hugs!
