Stretching my limits / reaching new goals / planning for good things to come ... Those are the things on my mind this week. What are you reaching for these days?

stripes every which way

paper mock ups of bigger things to come ;)

Did you know about the Perseid Meteor shower going on this weekend? An awesome excuse to go on a late night adventure and stare up at the sky🌠🌠 Last night I saw two, hoping for more tonight 🀞 Let me know how many shooting stars you see!!

You know how watering your plants can be kind of relaxing? Sometimes painting is like that too- show up, turn on the hose and aim at what is thirsty;) πŸ’¦πŸŒΏ

Lately it seems like no matter how many brushes I pull out of the jar, I end up painting with my hands anyway. It just feels better that way, but definitely makes for a longer clean up session. πŸ‘

contemplating composition (and also a day in the of life these Icelandic sheep 😍🐏)

diving into Tuesday like 🐳

"Take your pleasure seriously." - I watched a documentary about Charles and Ray Eames and apparently this is a saying they used often, and applied to their life and design. Loving the message- Do / Have / Be what you love!!

sunny side up

Working through some thoughts on paper... Is it weird that I love the grid lines? it satisfies some inner organzer in me, or the part of me that once upon a time wanted to be an architect. πŸ“

I feel lucky to get to paint everyday, and to continually learn about growing my business as an artist. I constantly ask myself what is the next, best step I can take today for my art, my business, and myself. Today I am celebrating a small victory after finally sending out a newsletter! Sometimes its just a little thing, but can make me feel like I accomplished a lot. Thanks to you all for your encouragement along the way ! πŸ€—
