Yesterday I told you about a new piece that popped in my head. Well, it’s in its final stage - the sit-and-stare-at-it stage. Before fully introducing you to one another, I want to first show you the tools I used to create this soft, grounded 30” x 40” abstract. A lot of whites mixed into blues and greens, various palette knives designated for mixing or painting, a surprising combination of brushes, pastels (there are a few scribbles on the painting!), and my trusty spray bottle. The mess was a 6/10.

Today was one of those days of major significance. It marks the end of a chapter in my life, and the beginning of a new one. Whilst I've gained so much from that chapter, it was time to make a decision. And so, the nerves have set in as I transition to this new phase... full of excitement, fear, determination, hope and a million and one thoughts running round my mind. It's time to lean in to the nerves, and trust my instinct.. here's to ambition, building dreams, and trusting that voice inside 🌟 . . . . . . #followyourdreams #change #goodthingsarecoming #mycreativelife #ambition

Who has the time to be sick when you are a mum to a toddler! Yesterday although having a bit of cold I after a really long time had a window to paint something for myself without any deadline or projects. . . I started this little rusty watering can with roses inspired by a photograph on Pinterest posted from Schunsland.blogspot.com and I really hoped I would be able to paint it more patiently but my toddler had something else in mind. One major meltdown and lots of sneezes ( thanks to cold) later I rushed this piece. . . I might revisit it but in a more loose style, something tight like the watering can deserves time ! . . BTW in case you missed it I have a new Skillshare class where I introduce you to the world of gouache with a detailed beginners friendly lesson and a fun floral project.

I almost didn't make the deadline for the second entry into the #fabfebgalaxychallenge! Actually this is probably less a galaxy and more a landscape painting, but I guess the stars can make it count! 😂 First time doing a snowscape and it's a bit challenging to figure out how much details to put in the snowy mountains. Also I'm not sure if I put enough details in that first hill... 🤔 I'd love your input! Let me know how I can improve this one!

“Not invited.” In elementary school and middle school, being expressly not invited to something was really painful for me. Believe it or not, I was a weird, nerdy kid lol. I’ve long since embraced my Loony Luna Lovegood self, and don’t worry if I’m “not invited.” All this to say, I thought it was kind of a funny way to word a rejection letter, and it gave me a little walk down memory lane, and made me realize in a tangible way how my inner landscape has grown since I was an awkward little kid who wanted to be “popular.” And in terms of my artmaking, I don’t feel bad about my work for not getting selected, or invited, rather. There was a time when I would have felt so bad about something like this. Now I’m just like, ah well, if not this, then something else. And I’m going to keep making the work that sparks my joy. Like one of my VCFA advisors, Mike Cloud, said: Get to work on that 5000 page book and mountain of paintings that someone will find in your garage after you die. (I told him my dream was for someone to discover a treasure trove of my work, a la Henry Darger, after I die. My advisor wasn’t being morbid about my prospects as an artist while I live lol.) Also, to anyone I know who DID get in: congratulations! ^.^ I’m glad you were invited! . . . . #comicpawZ day 377/400 with @adreanaline #rejectionletter #artrejection #nope #notinvited #itsok #personalgrowth #artistslife #thatshowitgoes #dailyart #artlife #creativelife #artistproblems #mycreativelife #painter #painting #paintersofinstagram #contemporarypainter #femalepainter #betterlucknexttime #onwardandupward #process #wip #doitfortheprocess #backtothestudio #keepworking #keeppainting #encouragement

How cute is this?! I have an entire box of map scraps and I’m waiting for some inspiration (and let’s be honest, time) to create something with them. I might see an image like this on Pinterest and mark it for project inspiration. But I won’t. ⠀ ⠀ Often times, when makers are at markets, we hear shoppers innocently mention “I could make that.” And they may be able to. But seeking out supplies, learning the craft, researching and exhibiting at markets, etc., takes time and funds. ⠀ ⠀ Instead, consider supporting the maker! It’s a win-win. You don’t have to figure out how it’s done and the maker direct benefits from the investment you made in their work. ⠀ ⠀ In this case, I’m going to leave it to the expert and order from her. And if you like vintage maps, give @by.psdre a follow! 🗺 ⠀ ⠀ 📷: @by.psdre⠀ ⠀

I have not been #makingarteveryday thanks to work, snow, kids, and now... vacation! Boy, did we all need this desperately! In this piece I played around with my new texture brushes from @bardotbrush and they're so much fun! I'm finding it challenging to edit myself and strike the balance between interesting vs. cluttered. Hoping some relaxation and downtime will spark some inspiration. Aloha, friends!

Self critique : all my cartoon portraits look sad...... how do I improve? Start using a reference photo to refer back to for facial placements. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ When you are critiquing your own work, be kind and helpful. Don’t say, “ this sucks... I suck... “ negative blah blah. Take an honest look. See how you can improve and pick one thing to start with. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ It’s always easier to let that inner meany pants of self doubt tear you down. But if you choose to work towards looking at your work with helpful eyes. Positive growth thoughts, magic will grow within. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #polishillustration #illustratorsoninstagram #dshappy #dsrainbow #colorventures #createeveryday #mycreativelife #abmhappylife #livingpastel #justbehue #instapainting #paintingoftheday #abmlifeiscolorful #artcollectors #dsart #dspink #patterns #sketchbookart

I will be focusing on Brand & Product photography and am looking forward to working with fun, passionate, happy entrepreneurs, creatives, makers and business shakers!

As you saw last week, I’m also available for doggie birthday parties and other fun lifestyle sessions! 😉 Bring on all the photos! 💃🏼 And a huge thank you to @harpermaven for putting together this gorgeous logo for me! #iminlove .
