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 sweet…
β€” Claus Oldenburg, 'Ode to Possibilities'

Seeing as how I walked through my first flurry of the season this weekend (nose burried deep into my scarf, sheepskin mittens, two hats - yes, I know πŸ™„, ridiculous - and snowpants already on .... I'm not built for winter!) I thought it was about time I shared a pic of one of my 'Winterland' prints!
*
Even with its restrained palette and minimal scene, I fell surprisingly hard for this winter view and still love seeing it come off the printing press. Never thought I'd be someone to find something beautiful about the bleak midwinter but it seems I did!
*
Shown is the full-size 40" x 40" print, but it's available in a number of different print sizes and as beautiful wintery greeting cards too.

Oh, the glory of a wide open, windswept, beautifully alive sky. Of seeing my heart and ideas expressed in all their colourful glory. The glorious feeling of being "all-in" with a painting.

Took one of my favorite views, and added in those glorious bright evening colours which make this sky sing. While the original was a commission, I'm happy to say this print has been added to the 'Forever Skies' collection and it's now available in a number of sizes. And beautiful little cards too!

My 'Forever Skies' collection is now live in the shop! Really let myself get swept away by each of the skies in this series - the originals were all on giant canvases so make spectacular prints of any size.
*
Included in this collection are a few big , new originals like this gorgeous lake view sky. I've happily been keeping 'Tailwind' quietly here with me and am so excited to finally be sharing this beautiful sky!
*
So lots in the shop now including 2022 calendars and greeting cards of the whole print line. There's definitely something for everyone!

After a wonderful, busy and super productive visit, saying goodbye and sending the other Bee off home across the ocean. I already miss having someone else right in the thick of things with me! To see her so dedicated and invested in my work (dare I say in me? ) is meaningful beyond words. I simply couldn't have grown the way that I have without her ❀️
*
I joke about being a "lone wolf" - and in most ways I am. I've always felt the need to do things on my own and hesitate to ask for help. But her visit has really proved otherwise. It's has been so great to have her here and hope it's not another 9 years until the next rendezvous! πŸ–€
*
Now, back to being a recluse in the studio and hiding behind work. I have things to do! πŸ˜„

Painting from my heart, for no real reason except the joy of it, is an absolutely essential part of my studio practice. 'Have brush must paint'. πŸ˜„
*
I call it 'play' because it's very much when I experiment and just see what happens in the moment. My mindset during these sessions is super important - I need to set expectations and judgment aside and just stay open and curious. It's the only way true magic makes itself seen on the canvas and in those moments, is wildly fun πŸ’—

All of the paintings from last week's sale are arriving in their new homes and I'm just loving the in-person reaction that everyone is having! There's just nothing like *feeling* these skies up close and personal. It's part of the magic of an original.
