I am for all art that takes its form from the lines of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweetโ€ฆ

Apparently I'm not just tiptoeing through this winter slump, I'm totally bulldozing my way forward. Hope you'll still love me on the other side of whatever the hell is happening over here ๐Ÿ˜„

Going to take this fun little piece of sky into the studio this afternoon and see what happens. I'm feeling the need for some more playful colour and this is it! Wish me luck ๐Ÿคž

I've finally brushed away the holiday cobwebs and am back to full swing here. First prints of the year shipping out today, shop open for orders (all those beautiful prints plus new cards added!) and full days back in the studio. I can feel my energy revving up for everything to come! Here's hoping my brushstrokes catch up and inspiration is quick to follow.
*
In other news, I've lost a painting. I moved it somewhat to dry safely and now can't remember where I put it. Welcome to my world! ๐Ÿ˜„

Despite the fact that I have 2 studio spaces, three easels, 15 feet of painting rails and 17 feet of work table available, I seem to have landed in a little corner of another room this week, surrounded by my oil paints working on the floor. Fun, but not particularly ergonomic.๐Ÿ˜„

Welcoming the return of light today and greeting the winter solstice sunshine with open arms. Light to me is everything. It's hope and clarity and joy and life.
*
"Winterlake" is a painting that revels in winter light under a crisp bright blue sky. A fresh blanket of snow silences the noise of the world but for the crunch of footsteps. The best kind of winter day.
*
Wishing you a bright and peaceful winter ahead!

I can feel the lack of light in every ounce of my being at this time of year. I wonder what it's like to live somewhere that doesn't go through this end of year dark slump. Maybe it makes me appreciate the spring even more, but it's still hard for me to get through without a serious dose of colour. And for that, there's always orange ๐Ÿงก

If anyone caught my story on Saturday you will have seen a time lapse of this little oil painting and the frustrating time I had trying to pull the magic out of this view. It was just one of those days. Time lapse deleted. I don't need to remember not having fun!
*
I know why things went wrong, I just didn't listen to the wiser part of me that knew " not this, not now ."
*
Hope to do better next time. Stay tuned ๐Ÿ–ค

"Stilling" is one of those beautiful pink skies full of dreams and hope, and has a horizon made for wonderful possibilities. With every print of it I see, I fall more and more in love with the softness of its clouds (I don't know what I did but I'd like to do more of it next year!)

Last print order before Christmas is being submitted tomorrow. Can't guarantee delivery by the 24th but will certainly be shipping out by the end of the week so you never know ๐Ÿคž

Just back from an evening stroll and want to Thank everybody who chooses to light up their homes at this time of the year. Thank you for precariously balancing yourself up a ladder in the chilly air, for wrestling with a long string of lights that inevitably gets tangled, for the patience to figure out why just one blub is blinking and why when one goes out, they ALL go out. I appreciate you multicoloured lightbulb people and yes, even those inflatable installation 'Santa-in-a-helicopter' people. Thank you. I enjoy it all. ๐Ÿ’œ
*
Thank you to everyone who chooses to light the dark and sparkle the night with colour.

Wishing you easy breezy weekend skies. May you be lounging in bed, lingering over coffee, puttering around in PJs, but importantly, getting outside to explore the world. There's nothing like a deep breath of fresh air and a wide open view of puffy white clouds.
*
" Daytrippin' " (shown here) is exactly that - a big, beautiful sky over rolling hills asking for nothing more than a moment to pause, to inhale the view and smile.
*
There are just a few more of this gorgeous limited edition print available (once it's sold out, that's it!) but of course lots of other colorful prints available in my shop now.
*
Christmas print order deadline is tomorrow, Dec 5th.
