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…
— Claus Oldenburg, 'Ode to Possibilities'

As much as I'd kinda like to, I can't hide behind the canvas all the time so ... Hello!
*
(Business words up front, party words at the end .... Bear with me here ...)
"
For the past couple of years I've been working with @jnhcoaching , and not only has she been an essential part of the growth of my business, but she is exceedingly good at listening , then challenging me personally/professionally in a number of creative and interesting ways.
*
What you might not realise is that there is an enormous amount of work aside from the actual painting painting that I need to look after in order to make a living by the painting painting part. And being a workhorse who loves what she does....well, I tend to work alot.
*
So here's the fun part (although even the thought of this is stressing me out which just goes to show you what a problem this is for me...)
*
My "homework" this month is to take a day off. I've been told to take a day completely off anything work related. And I'm not allowed to use the 24hrs after my vaccine when I'm feeling shitty anyway as my day off. I've been ordered to have a full day to sleep in, muck around in the garden, ride my bike to nowhere in particular, hike a trail with my dog, read a book on my porch swing and watch the clouds go by.
*
Can I do it? Not sure. But at some point this month you're going to see "Susannah's Day Off' documented in my stories (Julia has asked for proof because she knows me 😄). Wish me luck!
*
#susysdayofplay
*
I hope you're better at days off than me! What are some great 'days-off' things to do?

The bonus for me when working in oils is that I get to enjoy the paintings while they take their sweet time to dry. It also means that I have days and days to endlessly fuss over the details 💙

While the original has sold, prints of this beauty are being considered and you very well might be seeing her again!

I've shared the story of Highview before, how it was my walk to work, along a rural footpath, over hills and fences, and through a farmers field ("Good Morning cows!). Being England, it was often wet and muddy and grey and windy.... I kinda loved it all. But those mornings when I caught the sun warming over the hills.... They were spectacular.
*
While the original oil painting has sold, prints of this beautiful view are available in a number of different sizes. Link to the print shop in my bio above 👆

This is the one I have hanging over my own living room fireplace. It will works beautifully if your home decor is more the grey/cream/white/wood look.

I mean.... Could a painting ask for anything more? The most beautiful setting designed by @brookebutlerdesign, and perfectly photographed by @alexlukey and one very humbled painter grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this project. Thank you!

"I close my eyes and I begin to see"
*
Moments of silence, and the practice of allowing myself to pause in stillness is something that has quite literally, saved my life. It's the only reason I believe I am still here on this earth, paintbrush in hand. Forever in search of silence amidst the noise of life.
*
Painting has been my most consistent conduit to the quiet. The doing is the reward, no matter what the outcome. It's restorative, uplifting, energizing, comforting and deeply rewarding. *
I always know when I'm seeing that kind of quiet connection on the canvas. Seeing it today 🖤

The one that was once a big pink sky, that softened into a pastel dream, then froze into an icy blue, winter view, but melted into a deeply warm memory of a tremendous journey to what it is now.
