Trying to focus on this Monday afternoon but way too distracted by the shapes, shadows, valleys and strokes I created on my Studio door. Occupational hazard? ⚫️⚪️ #makeart #monicashulmanstudio #abmlifeisbeautiful #artflowsessions #artistlifeforme See more of this door in my Painting BTS story highlights 👆🏽

I have a museum bucket list and last week I was able to check one off. Have you been to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art? As an obvious art lover (obsessive, really) and architecture nerd, I had been wanting to visit basically since forever. We arrived to San Francisco, grabbed a late lunch and then headed straight there. Everything seems to close early in Northern California but we got lucky bc on Thursdays this museum is open until 9pm. The collections were spectacular (especially the Rauschenberg special exhibit OMG) and the space was gorgeous. My very first ladies weekend away since having my kids was off to a good start. Do you have a bucket list? Mine seems never-ending so I had to break it down into categories! My museum one is looooong! #monicashulman #willtravel #iloveart #artistinanartmuseum

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.” -Martin Luther King Jr. These words, like so much that he said, are as true today as they’ve ever been.

Currently working on four new oil paintings (the fourth isn’t pictured) in a color way that has me daydreaming about spring. These pieces are so textured and layered. I love working in square format bc they work so well together stacked, in a big square as a set, all in a row in a hallway, or on their own as a stand-alone piece. They are brightening up my sunny Studio on this cold winter morning. What are you daydreaming about today? 🖤💚 #monicashulmanstudio #artfulwednesdays #artflowsessions #oilpaintings #abmlifeisbeautiful #sodomino

“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” Thank you @oprah for giving a voice to people and for lighting the way to change and awareness. I am feeling so energized and ready for what’s next and I am hopeful that my children will grow up in a world with role models who seek the truth and who know that they can speak up and have their voices heard. Happy Monday🖤 #whywewearblack #timesup

This winter weather advisory is an important reminder of two things: First, there is beauty everywhere, you just have to open your eyes and look, and second, New York is always a good idea...even in freezing temps. Stay warm, stay focused. Happy Friday! ❄️❤️ #monicashulmanstudio #cyclonebomb #ilovenyc

Writing about 2017, the word I chose to guide me in 2018, and more on my blog today. Also, it’s the arctic and evidently a #bombcyclone (WHAT) in the northeast today! Stay warm (and sane), friends and visit my #linkinbio to read 🙏🏼🤗#monicashulmanstudio #curatedbyms

2017 was an unexpected year of growth, change and evolving. I started the year at the Women’s March in Washington, entered a new decade when I turned 40, traveled abroad with my children for the first time, launched my new website, opened a studio, and began a new creative endeavor with my artwork that I honestly only dreamed was possible. At a time where we all saw the chaos in the world, I have felt incredibly energized and inspired by this feeling of wanting to do more (and actually doing it!), to try to be better than I once was, to pushing myself outside of my comfort zone (it’s scary there), and to keep growing and learning.
Every year I choose a word that becomes my mantra to guide me and in 2017 my word was “purpose”—it served me well. I don’t want to make any huge declarations for 2018, and I don’t believe in resolutions bc I think goals are important all year and not just at the beginning and the end of one, but my word for 2018 will be “present”. I want to be in the moment and focus on what is important and gives me more clarity. I wish that for everyone. Happy new year! Thank you for being here with me. See you in 2018! 💫❤️😌 #nye2018 #monicashulmanstudio Stop by my stories for some highlights of my year🤗💫🖤❣️

“An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.” - Dr. Edwin Land
I still fear failure but the difference now is that I no longer let it guide me or influence every single decision. In 2018 my hope for myself is that I can continue to acknowledge that fear, let it sit next to me like a piece of my past, and glide by it with an openness toward new adventures, possibilities, and creative endeavors. 🙏🏼💫
PS—This is my most recently completed painting in my Ebb & Flow series. You can see more in my story highlights in my bio.

“One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” —Tom Wolfe
Sometimes all you need is an afternoon in New York with your best friend and a few (or many) cocktails. Pair that up with a long walk (even in the frigid temps) and your camera and you’re golden. I love you, Life and NYC. 💫✨🙏🏼

This is what it’s all about for me. These two and their not pictured dad. My family is my greatest work of art and the thing I am most proud of. Every year I go through my personal photos and choose my favorite of the year. Even though this is what I do for a living, I don’t sit my kids down for formal holiday portraits. I love doing those and working with families,and more and more I feel like I need to hire someone to do our portraits one of these days, but I always prefer something more casual and spontaneous and this was the clear winner for 2017. So Merry Christmas from my family to yours. I hope you have a beautiful day filled with family, friends and love. 💕✨💫

I recently hosted an art night (not your typical paint a sunset, field of flowers art night) and invited some of my favorite girlfriends with one of my all-time favorite teachers and artists @seilsmith I experimented with my first ever monotypes and print making and now I am hooked. So much fun! Here are four of my creations from the night. We experimented with slow drying acrylic paints and India ink. Officially obsessed. Expect to see more 👩🏻‍🎨🙏🏼 Thanks, Ashley! cc @scribbleartworkshop #monicashulmanstudio #monotypes #printmaking #printmaker #makeart #artflowsessions #smallformat

Recently I’ve been creating works in shades and tones of black and white to mirror my first love and the roots of my vision, black and white photography. Since I love working with bold color it’s been a challenge creating works in singular tones but I love all the flexibility I have to create texture and movement with the paint and my brush strokes. I just finished this still nameless piece on a canvas I stretched myself — I forgot how good that felt. 🖤#monicashulmanstudio #ebbandflowsseries #allblackeverything #oilpaintings #artflowsessions
