Want to know a secret? Sometimes I snap a pic of a painting in progress so that I can play with ideas for how to move forward using a sketch app. Its really fun and can help a lot when I'm feeling stuck. What do you do to shake free from a "stuck" place? • • • • • #artdetails #creativecue #creativeprocess #createconnection #creativityfound #createcultivate #chicagoartist #arycollecrion #inspiredliving #originalart #artcollector #notebook #lonnyart #livecolorfully #sodomino #designsponge #apartmenttherapy #abmlifeiscolorful #abmlifeisbeautiful #abmathome #sketchbook #dowhatyoulove #designlovefest #artoftheday #mytradhome #abstractmag

summer is upon us! How are you soaking it in?

its a start...

Completed this piece on Tuesday and took it out for a photoshoot on Thursday↪️ Now that is a quick turnaround! But don't worry, it is still available to purchase if you feel like it really belongs to you 💓

Layers upon layers expertly curated and composed by the ever talented @gilmelott at @studio6f ; sofa by @williamcollinscollectionllc / screen by @waywardmachineco and paintings by yours truly 😉

I was talking with a new friend this week about the importance of *Showing Up* -- whether it be to your office, studio, relationships, fitness goals, or yourself... It won't always turn out how you had hoped- but you have to show up in order for the good and bad to even happen in the first place. So here I am struggling with a painting that I showed up to work on, even though I had no idea what would come next. I didn't do much to it today, but at the very least I know it better.

Glad to be getting back to my studio after a few days of other sorts of busy-ness: website updates , shipping, replenishing art supplies, cleaning, etc. How is your week starting off so far?

Swung by the new Chicago @serenaandlily store this weekend to check in on this piece- and WOW, what a space. Their love of art is front and center and there is a TON of it to check out. If you are on the hunt for art you will love, be sure to head on over. Art changes everything! • • • • • #gallerywall #serenaandlily #slchicago #interiordesign #originalart #designshop #anneabueva #artcollector #curated #inspiredliving #coastalvibe #blueandwhite #artchangeseverything #art #abstractart #houseenvy #finditstyleit #chicagodesign

Sometimes, despite my best efforts to save a piece, its best just to peel it off the stretcher and start over. Here is to fresh starts + new beginnings 👩‍🔧

Heart breaking news today with the loss of Anthony Bourdain who inspired and showed us the importance of reaching across borders, exploring the world, sharing a meal and living authentically. • • • • • #mentalhealthawareness #translatingtravel #seekinspirecreate #tolerance #respect #cooktogether #anthonybourdain #takeoff #touchdown #staycurious #createconnections

Working on paper instead of canvas is a fun change of pace for me: faster drying = quicker decisions = different outcomes 😜 Trying my best to learn and adapt as I go...

When you move, what are the first things that go in and start to make a new place feel like home? After seeing this pic from @ruthiestebbins I'm thinking plants and art have to be near the top of that list?!?

Diving into a new week 💦 What are you busy with today?

Totally floored... I've heard from so many beautiful folks today with words of support and encouragement... I am truly blown away. Thank you @chicagotribune and @tategunnerson for your careful and honest writing. • • • • • #grateful #gratitude #chicagotribune #artist #artprocess #expressyourself #creativeprocess #meettheartist #meetthemaker #expressionistartist #lifeandstyle #ihavethisthingwithart

Friday afternoon and I am reallllly looking forward to flopping down on a comfy spot like this one over the weekend. Thanks @ruthiestebbins for making my diptych look so calm, cool and collected in your gorgeous design studio. 😘 PS- this is also a sneak peek of next week's pop up party. DM me for details;)

Incredibly grateful to @tategunnerson and @chicagotribune for telling the story behind my artwork so honestly and thoughtfully... 📷 by @p_beaty • • • • • #grateful #gratitude #paintyourworld #studioscenes #inthemoment #creativeprocess #chicagotribune #expressyourself #chicagoartist #findingjoy #liveauthentic #creativeprocess #createconnection #studiospace #artprocess #justbreathe #childloss #iamstillstanding #stillstanding #grief
