rock scrambling towards the water 🌊
change your surroundings, change your perspective... painting in a group feels so foreign to me after all my solo studio time. Riding the wave, embracing the process and trusting that when I get home I will discover little gems of new knowledge. 💎
obsessed with these modern lines on ancient ruins.
Excited to start painting tomorrow here in Cascais ☀️♥️ I have never flown with this many art supplies before, and my bag definitely was searched. Ya think that is normal? I hope they enjoyed finding many, many tiny tubes of paint (instead of whatever they thought was in there!)
Potentially my favorite photo of the day. (and I took a lot) Anyone who hangs their clothes in rainbow order is always the winner. Tomorrow I start an art class, but until then I'm hoofing it through the crazy wonderful streets of Lisbon. 👟👟
so, what are you all up to today?
just what the doctor ordered... 🎺🎶
good morning, beauty
first completed painting of the new year: 60"W x 48"H (not on the site yet, DM for details)
remnants from a woodworker in Mexico
My smarty-pants husband got me some new art supplies for Christmas, and I am a busy bee exploring all the ways I can use them. Thanks @steveabueva for the 👌 gift. 🎁 Did you receive any gifts that are changing how you do stuff?
I'm not a big " new year's resolution" type of gal, but I do geek out on organizing and purging. It won't stay like this for long, but good to know what is possible 😉
Have you been to Portugal? What is on your list of "absolutely-must-do?" I am simultaneously doing research for an upcoming trip while working on a few paintings in progress. I guess all those hours on travel sites showing sun and sand and seaside cliffs is sinking in:)
This ain't no top 9 - this is a massive Thank You to all the interior designers I got to work with in 2018! It is always a thrill to have my artwork find a home in your beautiful spaces- I am humbled and touched. Can't wait to see what beauty you build in 2019! 🖤 • • • @southlooploft @jeanniebalsaminteriors @studio6f @sallyarmbruster @ruthiestebbins @jpinteriorschi @karenpearson2456 @haleypearson_ @klinteriors @hogankellydesign

Ready to ring in the New Year? Me too, and also feeling grateful for all that 2018 brought: connecting with great people, exciting travels, and getting to continue making and sharing my artwork with all of you! Thank you for being here and best wishes to you and yours for great things in 2019 ♥️
Back home and ready to dig into some paintings that have been patiently waiting their turn amid all this holiday busyness. Works in progress always look different after being away for a bit- Excited to have fresh eyes and to see where they take me 👀
Time to go stretch my legs after yesterday's eats and treats 👟👟 Lucky for me I get to stroll around downtown Charleston 😍
