Things I stopped doing in my late 30s/early 40s: wearing makeup (except for my bold lip bc obviously), dying my hair way too light, apologizing for things that I didn’t do, saying yes to things I want to say no to, over-explaining myself and my choices. Things I started doing in my late 30s/40s: believing in myself (still a struggle but it’s getting better), being in the moment without distractions, making more time for things and people that matter, using all the face serums, learning the importance of traditions, making art (defined loosely) every day. #monicashulmanphotostories

My clients @manhassethomesny, award-winning builders in the five boroughs, commissioned a piece at an exact size with a selection of colors to complement the lobby of their stunning, newly constructed and designed building in Brooklyn. I custom-cut the most beautiful linen canvas (thank you @blickartmaterials) and worked with them to complete this commission using my artistic vision and style and their preferred color scheme. I love working with my clients to transform and add depth to their space. Thank you so much @manhassethomesny ✨💫 📷 Russell Pratt Photography via @rai_marble #monicashulmanstudio

I was thinking of the way the light dances and changes on the Hudson River when I painted this. I started crying when I finished it bc I am overly emotional like that. Tons of layers and so much texture...when a painting is like a person. 🙋🏻‍♀️💛 #monicashulmanstudio #creativepersonproblems #monicashulmanthetravelersseries #abstractexpression #artflowsessions

It was one of those mornings. I barely slept, I was rushing and running and then I slipped and wiped out completely on the ice in the driveway. It scared my daughter (and me) who I had just reminded to be careful, we missed the bus, we were late to preschool, and all I wanted to do was crawl back in bed after drop off. brain instinctively drove me to my studio where I haven’t been in over a week because life and family and other adulting responsibilities...and I finished two paintings that were nearly done and I haven’t thought about this morning until just this minute when I sat down to write this caption. Thank you, Brain and Heart for guiding me in equal measure. Thank you, Family and Life for the chaotic yet beautiful inspiration. Thank you, Body for being strong enough to be ok after that literal fall. Privileged to even be able to do all of this. #monicashulmanstudio #monicashulmanphotostories #makeart #artflowsessions

This is us. Early morning, pre-coffee, pre-everything. Barely awake but somehow ready for the day with these two and definitely always ready for cuddles in my bed. #monicashulmanphotostories #familyselfie #thiskid #thiskidfamily #butseriouslythough #wheresmycoffee

Work table situation. 👩🏻‍🎨 Experimenting with these strokes and others and kind of loving it. Also, have been painting primarily with oils these days and loving it so much. #mondaymotivation #abmlifeiscolorful #monicashulmanstudio #studio #myworkspace #allthecolors

Bless this (hot, colorful) mess. 🙋🏻‍♀️🙏🏽😎Gearing up for such a fun event in my community next month organized by @riverarts — an incredible organization of artists in the lower Hudson Valley where I am proud to live and work. On April 21st and 22nd, artists across the Rivertowns will open up their studios for visits, talks, events, shows and sale of their work. This is my second year participating (last year my friend and fellow artist @cskwax invited me to share her space) but my first in my own space. More info to follow but I’ll be showing new original paintings, photographs, perhaps a print or two, and offering a special price on portrait shoots for spring if you book during the tour. Stay tuned! #monicashulmanstudio #riverarts #riverartsstudiotour2018 #hudsonvalley #hudsonvalleyartist #artflowsessions #artflows #studiolife #makearteveryday

Working to raise a strong, brave, confident, empathetic girl in this world. Celebrating all girls and women today and always. And, thankful I married a man who is a wonderful example to both our daughter and our son of what it means to be a feminist and a respectful person towards all people. ❤️👧🏻🧒🏻👨‍👩‍👧‍👦#internationalwomansday #togetherwerise #standup #heforshe #thefutureisfemale #boyswillbegoodhumans #timesup

Daydreaming about this moment captured a couple of weeks ago. It’s currently snowing and I am over winter. #snowdaymusings #monicashulmanportraits

The Travelers. All the pink here and all the strokes for new body of work, based on a series of photos I shot a few years ago. #thetravelers #monicashulmanstudio #allthepink

What I am sure will be the first of many #petportraits. Say hello to Buddy the cavapoo. Our family adopted him yesterday and we are madly in love. ❤️🐶

I always take a sun up and sun down photo whenever I go anywhere. Can you guess which one this is? Going to miss the warm air that came with this view. #miamisky #msstudiotravels #monicashulmanstudio #newhashtagalert 💙

In awe of these two and their sense of adventure and bravery. Winding down our vacation and I’m going to miss all the uninterrupted family time. Also, my Nikon mysteriously stopped working the day we arrived on vacation. No matter. I’ve been relying on my iPhone to capture all of these moments bc after all, it’s the photographer and not the camera that makes the images. 💛🌊☀️#monicashulmanstudio #vitaminsea #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle

One day I will be someone’s ancestor. Maybe my future family will inherit my love of all things colorful, my overpowering desire to see the world and photograph every moment, my inability to sit still for too long, my wordiness, my too big for my face nose, or my overly sensitive, slightly anxious, but passionate heart. Maybe they’ll share my affinity for red lipstick, taking selfies, and owning and wearing too many accessories. Maybe. #randomthoughts 👃🏽💋🤳🏼❤️ #monicashulmanstudio

I spent my 41st birthday hunting for seashells and playing in the water with my kids. My family sang to me in one of my favorite restaurants with a candle in my favorite dessert from my childhood. These precious moments and days when the four of us can be together are my best and happiest times and mean everything to me. I can’t stop thinking about the families in Parkland who lost everything less than a week ago. So many beautiful, innocent lives gone in a second and in their school where they are supposed to feel safe. My children are my entire world. We have to do something. We have to stand up and say enough is enough for all of our sakes but especially for our kids. They are begging us and they deserve our help @marchforourlives @momsdemandaction #everytown #momsdemandaction
