Where She Lay

I recently sold an abstract piece that I'd kept hung in our house. I was absolutely thrilled to have it welcomed into its new home, but it definitely left a void.

+

I'm finally getting around to binge watching "Mad Men".

=

Perfect storm of abstract painting inspiration.



So yesterday I pulled out a big canvas I'd had for a while and started playing with paint. Within a few hours (insert image of me impatiently waiting for layers of paint to dry) this was finished and hung on my wall.

"Where She Lay"
I love how it looks from my kitchen!

Yellow Rose of Texas 1

I've lived in Texas almost 50 years, and even though her politics make me grouchy at times, I can't help but love this big state of ours. (And, yes, the state being blue...subtle touch, right?...is a dream of mine.)

Stay tuned for more Texas themed art!

Adorned with Love

I have clear teenage memories of hugging a cow at the base of the Alps and having an incredible connection and being filled with so much love. I imagine that were I a cow who got to live out my days blissfully eating grass and laying around under a big shade tree that I would be incredibly honored to have my skull painted when I no longer roamed the Earth.

ATX

While I've never been inclined to attend ACL Fest, even though it's only a five minute walk from my house, I'll happily put up with the parking lot that my neighborhood becomes as long as they keep playing the Star Wars theme to open the festival each day.

Here's to fabulous music in ATX!

Motion in Stillness

We all have super powers. Today I found out that hummingbirds can hover, and fly backward and upside-down. I think that's pretty awesome. I love discovering the super powers...we all have them, you know.

Little One

When I started this painting I was planning on creating a bird with many more details than I ended up with, but somehow the simplicity of the painting at this stage was super appealing to me. It added to this little one's innocence. I think I may try to have this image put on infant size onesies. :-)
