My crafting plan is coming together. Mwaaa ha ha ha! Yes, that's a evil genius cackle. I'm gonna take over the crafting world!!! But seriously, though it may seem counterproductive to plan your creative pursuits, I find having an overall guideline helps with that backlog of UFOs, WIPs, and WTDs (want to dos). And I can show you how with my free 5 Day Class.

Love using my art, in this case a pallette shot, as a background for a great quote.
As a parent I try encourage my kids to be themselves. Not easy at all when there is so much peer pressure to fit in, but so worth it as your identity is what makes you who you are. Never let someone else define you or put you in a box that they created for you. Create your own space that makes you shine and be the best you 😍. #Rockyou #beyourselfalways #youareyou

....But who knows. It might end up "pretty" nevertheless, it doesn't really matter to me. It's brave. Sometimes "pretty" is SO overrated, especially when it comes to creating for the sake of creating. So here's my Brave Unpretty in progress or just as it is. Big. Love♡ And now I must shower. And do the things. #gratefulartist

At any given time there’s at least 3 paintings in some stage of progress at my workspace 😬Call me unfocused or unorganized, but sometimes you just need to switch gears between subjects or styles to avoid overthinking (and compromising) one painting. This little blue seascape was a “retreat” from a large detailed commission :)

Took advantage of the ice frosted window to see this #wip against it.

In my sketchbook entries I often like to "etch" the paper with lines to add texture. (Some of the white lines in yesterday's post are done this way.) Here's a quick clip of a one color application. Today, surrounded by ice and icicles, I am imagining spring color and flowers.
step 1: draw with a white Jelly Roll pen.
step 2: draw a layer of colored pencil on top.

Calling all Global Goddesses! 💃🏽💃🏼💃🏾💃🏻Who’s ready for a trip of a lifetime to the tropical island of Bali, Indonesia? It’s been a dream trip for many years and 2018 felt like the year to finally say, YES PLEASE and THANK YOU to this desire. @nikkicadestudio and I have teamed up to bring you @globalgoddesstours - art retreats that celebrate connection, creative expression, and cultural appreciation.
The first stop is our 2018 Bali Tour from Sept 26th-Oct 2nd: imagine a week of exploring the best sights in Bali (temples, rice terraces, waterfalls, local markets) along with art lessons in travel journaling, sketching, and mixed media painting with a focus on your personal story and the Goddess within. There will be meditation and dance, downtime to relax by the pool, time to reflect and connect with Goddess sisters.
We have a special welcome gift bag, flower crowns, plus colorful cocktails upon arrival. We can’t wait for this creative adventure!
This will be an intimate group so book your room before spots fill up. There are only 5 rooms left with flexible payment plans + friend rates. $300 holds your space today. We’re also offering $100 off the total cost if you book before April 1st.
We’re looking forward to giving you a big Global Goddess hug in Bali!
Visit GlobalGoddessTours.com (linked above or send us a message). Please tag a friend that might be interested in this retreat. Love & Peace. 💓✈️🌸🙏🏽🎨💫🌊🌿

Has anyone else ever accidentally mistaken their coffee/tea for their brush water? 😂

I just get focused and forget to pay attention to anything else, or maybe I’m just bad at being aware of my surroundings. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Anyway, I started work on a new project and I’m super excited to share it!

It was fun to work on landscapes for a few days but I'm back to some projects that are more "me". Brighter colors move me lately, and non or even semi-representational art that is open to more room for interpretation just seems to be what gets my creativity flowing these days. So here's a snippet of what's on my palette today. .

Creating art is so much more then to satisfy myself. I believe art has the power to transform an environment. To add calm, joy & stir up something unique in each one of us
. .
Art, used properly, is a powerful tool to remind us of beauty, grace & strength
. .
My hope is never to become my biggest collector, but to keep sending art out into the world, because I think we all have something unique to offer others. I love seeing & hearing your stories.
I love seeing you pursuing the things that bring your unique beauty into this world!!
.
.
I’d love to hear what is something that makes you sooo excited? .
.
Are you a maker, artist, accountant (god bless all you Number lovers!!)??

Tromp No. 53 / Gallatin Mountain Range, Montana / February 2018

This one, featuring a copper wire that I gathered while sweeping my garage, is to mark the occasion of our electrician (finally) finishing wiring our garage. And to shine a light on the orange pine needles and cones which are making my heart happy.
