From the studio – Life goes on


A new painting that came out of nowhere after many layers and many transitions. I was all over the place on this one, stalled for days, weeks at a time. But now I have come out at the other end of the dark tunnel. Some things are definitely looking better. I made a Manifest Abundance Mandala, a high-five hamsa hand of sorts that visualizes/crystalizes my artsy thoughts and so now I have a plan for the rest of 2016 in terms of what I want to accomplish, and I am painting again without too much struggle.

Not all is perfect in paradise though. I didn’t get accepted to a new Art Festival I wanted to be in AND I didn’t sell any of my door paintings at the Creative Artist’s Gallery Show that I was in. I am not going to let it get me down. It’s FALL and a brand new season, although you wouldn’t know it here in Florida! I always feel energized in fall! How is your year going?


Life – Falling into it!

It’s fall! We’re into it and many are feeling the chill. Here in Florida it’s still warm. We are actually breaking records some days with our temperature. But the skies are big and sunsets beautiful. The land is lush with color. Even so, I’ve been missing the fall leaves that used to come from my northern friends and family via the snail mail. So, I went on a walk today and collected a few colorful leaves of my own. I am also painting some in watercolors… it makes me feel like Jack(ie) Frost!

From my morning walk today…
