Joy

About ten years ago my mom asked me to pull a large portfolio from under her bed that she'd purchased at a neighborhood garage sale about a decade before. Inside were at least a hundred paintings on watercolor paper. Some were signed, some were not, some seemed to be the same artist, some seemed varied. We looked them over and I loved the colors, though the subject matter didn't hold my interest. When she died several years ago the portfolio, minus a few paintings that sold at her estate sale, ended up leaning against the wall behind our couch. I pulled it out this weekend and created what I consider to be a collaborative piece. This was originally an abstract piece, but I saw flowers...of course. I'm looking forward to doing more.

Descending Bird in Flight Amongst Sunbeams

This is a companion piece to a previous commission. When I sent a photo of this completed work to the lovely person who'd commissioned it they replied with the perfect title. "Descending Bird in Flight Amongst Sunbeams" I love that so much! Always such an honor to create a special piece of art for someone.

Worthy of Rest

 This has been on my mind a lot as winter break is coming to a close.


"Hard work is important. So are play and nonproductivity. My worth is tied not to my productivity but to my existence. I am worthy of rest."

-Glennon Doyle


Make rest a priority, my friends.
