Venus 1

My husband and I have been traveling in the Pacific Northwest and loving every minute of it. Before our trip I prepped a bunch of tiny canvases (2.75" x 2.75" and 1 7/8" x 1 7/8") so I could create art on the road. I've done a number of them and will post them all eventually. Some I'm bringing home and others I've left as gifts for beautiful friends, both new and old.

This one is the first of two (so far) Venus pieces inspired by a lovely and amazing friend.

Once Upon a Time he was but a Twinkle in his Father's Eye

I've got a soft spot in my heart for father/son relationships.

Primal Feminine

Sometimes a random India ink doodle goes all wildly expressive, wildly feminine...primal feminine. And sometimes a dear friend sends you a perfectly timed article.

Thankful for my Muse

As I was wrapping up my 6th year of painting and starting my 7th, I thought of my muse in this wonderful art adventure I'm on. Feelings of bliss, angst, being driven, sadness, despair, triumph, compassion, calm, joy, love.... I think my painting is all about embracing those feelings and getting them out. It's all about the process. I've been asked if it's hard to let go of my work when they go to other homes and with the exception of about five pieces (all featuring my family/pets and one with a quote that particularly speaks my truth), the answer is "no". The process feeds my soul and I'm ever thankful for my muse, all those feelings, that need not be labeled good or bad, positive or negative.

This is the piece I completed on the 16th of June, the last day of my 6th year of painting.

And then over the weekend our family went to a tie dye party!
