Abstract Watercolor Painting

Sept. 26, 2018

“The soul drinks from the same lake at center. And somehow when one of us bows our head toward that lake. the center is opened for us all. This is one of the quietest gifts.”

~ Mark Nepo

Photoshoot

Sept. 27, 2018

It’s been the most beautiful New England day and although I have had on overwhelming pull to be outside all day I have been soaking up all the dreamy light in the studio that I can.
.
I’m working on a little “styling/photoshoot” for an upcoming blog post on vignettes. Since I am still learning my camera I always underestimate how long it will take me to get good photos, and even then I am super critical of myself. I have so many ideas and can’t always translate them the way I see them in my minds eye and feel them in my heart.
.
Hope you are having the most lovely day!

Daffodils

October 1, 2018

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrows.” ~Audrey Hepburn
.
This weekend was drenched in SUNSHINE which felt absolutely amazing. My sweet love @gaffkeb was away so I took advantage of the weather and spent most of my time in the garden. 🌻

I planted some really pretty bulbs🌷: orange and pink tulips, alliums and of course more daffodils. Daffodils are my favorite in terms of getting the most “bang for your buck” as they multiply where the other bulbs do not. I look forward to them SO much after our long New England winters. Do you plant bulbs? What are your favorites?

New Painting Collection

October 3, 2018

This little painting is called, “Summer’s Reflection”. I used spirited shades of orange to radiate warmth, happiness and optimism, something I strive to communicate with each of my paintings. It will be part of a *NEW Collection* I will have available soon. If you would like to know when it is being released I invite you join my list where I share updates and other fun things I hope will delight you! Link in bio or here—>http://eepurl.com/G_UvL 🌻

Artist’s Inspiration

October 4, 2018

I am so very appreciative of all the wonderful podcasts that are available today. They refresh me, fill me with new ideas and ways of looking at the world. I sneak them in whenever I can: on my daily walks, while in the studio and even when I’m cooking. Thought I would share a short list of my favorites with you: Krista Tippett’s @OnBeing@elizabeth_gilbert_writer‘s “Magic Lesson’s” & @Oprah‘s @SuperSoulSunday
.
I am always open to new podcasts. What are your favorites? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Color

October 5, 2018

“You can put down one color, and it calls for an answer. You have to look at it like a melody.” ~Romare Bearden
.
This quote resonates with me SO very much! Every painting for me is like this~it’s like having a dance with life.
.
Happy Friday! 🙂

Slow Sunday

October 7, 2018

Slow Sunday…
.
Taking the time to pause today and pulled one of @DrWayneDyer‘s “Inner Peace” cards. Maybe the words will resonate with you today..
.
“True happiness resides within me.”
.
“Most people are searching for happiness outside of themselves. That’s a fundamental mistake. Happiness is something that you ARE and it comes from the way that you think.”
.
Today I am finding happiness hanging in my studio with my kitties, enjoying lazy mugs of @peetscoffee and writing in my @fiveminutejournal. What is making you happy today?
