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

'Evening Shade' places the viewer under a wide open sky, offering time to wonder and a quiet moment to dream. Wishes are carried on these winds.
*
With a dash of light through the dark, 'Evening Shade' is a deeply peaceful and spirited sky.
*
A few limited edition archival prints are still available in my shop. Signed and numbered with love ๐Ÿ’œ

The past number of months have been incredibly busy with life pulling me in more directions than I've really been able to manage. Hanging on through colour and paint and a knowingness that "this too shall pass"
*
Restless with my work. Searching for something yet not having a clue what it is. Ever-exploring. Trying to relax into a state of flow. A slower heartbeat and steady focus on the work. Needing to stay open.
*
Grateful to have my studio and a quiet place to retreat to. Somewhere to close the door, tune down the noise, turn out the world and tune in to the simple, and endlessly beautiful, process of paint on canvas.

I hope you're waking up to sunshine today! Waking to a beautiful day of giving Thanks and paying attention to all the things, no matter how little, to be grateful for. Morning light always holds such promise for me, and in this little painting I was trying to capture that peaceful warm hope of a brand new day. ๐Ÿ’›

Just looking at the calendar and have realized that the the deadline for Christmas prints is fast approaching. If you're thinking of giving the gift of art (or calendars) this year, it's something to take care of sooner rather than later. ๐Ÿ’›

Shown is a framed 24" x 24" archival print of the beautiful "Aurora". She's available in a number of different sizes as well as really pretty note cards.

I'm always searching for a kind of deep peace that I don't seem to have inside. A sense of true belonging in this world. A connection I can't seem to make. A knowing of purpose that doesn't come and go with the wind. Is it just me?
*
Seeking quiet today. Painting in silence. In search of answers, in search of peace, in search of myself ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™

Art doesn't have to be big to make a colourful impact in a room. While it's important to hang art appropriately scaled to the size of the wall (please don't hang one piece of too-small art on a huge wall! ) small pieces can say big things.
*
Shown is a beautifully framed print of 'Neverending', one of the many prints available in my shop, and a perfect example of how lovely a small piece can look.

For this little one, I literally went straight from a fabulous September day out on the trails, into the studio to immediately capture the view, the colours, the feeling of the best hike of the year.
*
So as many of my pieces are, it was inspired by a body and mind memory rather than a photo. I kind of inhaled the experience of the moment. The feeling of a place is so much more important to me than the details. Perfectly depicted? No. Perfectly true and real to me? Absolutely ๐Ÿงก

As an "October Forever" kind of gal, this bright pink sky is a big middle finger to the white stuff on the ground that greeted me this morning. ๐Ÿ’—

Interrupting the flow of colorful skies to mention that I've just opened up the last box of calendars - so if you're thinking of purchasing one (such a great gift idea!) I'd suggest not leaving it too late to do so. I'd hate for you to be disappointed! ๐Ÿ™‚

A note from behind the easel:
*
Always grateful for the paintings that remind me that it doesn't have to be complicated. Interest and depth and feeling can be created with a limited palette and simple scene. Getting to the heart of the idea, capturing its essence, the mood, the light and dark while limiting the superfluous details is an ongoing conversation/debate/challenge as I paint. Love the abstracted nature of the results. ๐Ÿ’™

Can we detour a little bit (a lot a bit) into some Sunday morning nonsense? The question of the century is:
*
Why have I only just discovered @hotones on YouTube?!?!
*
I now know what was missing in my life and @seanseaevans delivered. Surprisingly great interview questions and incredibly pained answers. Step aside Netflix, take a pause podcasts, Hot Ones has me hook, line and sunk.
*
(And even though I don't like anything remotely hot and don't eat wings, why do I kind of want to be on this show?! I'd DIE on the first bite)
*
Are you a fan? Favorite guests? If not, highly recommend giving up a few hours to watch. Just a few of the best I've seen so far: @paulrudd @halleberry @joshbrolin @rickygervais @kristenanniebell @petedavidson @tomholland @jonnybernthal .... The list goes on. But be warned, a few hours will easily lead to a few days glued to the show.
*
I'm actually finding it hard to tear myself away and head to the studio, but off I go.

There's something so lovely about the ideas that linger, the favorite colours that call, the familiar landscapes that I return to time and time again. They ask for nothing but to come again and keep exploring. An easy ask. ๐Ÿ™‚
*
There's a comfort in the knowingness that I find both incredibly calming and incredibly freeing. This is one of those beautiful little views that I shall never tire of revisiting. Always similar but never the same.

Starting today off with a giant Thank you to everyone who has made me a full-time shipping department this week. Between calendars and print orders and the big sale of littles yesterday, I'm busy and beyond grateful. So very, very grateful and not one moment of this is taken for granted. Thank you โค๏ธ

I think there are still a few really good 12" x 12" originals in the shop for anyone who might have missed out yesterday.

Back to packing - hope to have everything on its way by the end of the day ๐Ÿ™‚

This painting was a total escape from what I was supposed to be doing. One could also say I was procrastinating. Avoiding. Willfully ignoring. Delaying responsibility. Head-in-the-sand pretending I had all the time in the world to dream of carefree skies. But in my world, when stress calls, pink answers ๐Ÿ’—

A rare sighting of the gal behind the gallery. More importantly, a really nice photo of 'Daytripping'.
