Staying true to the heart sometimes means destroying what beauty you already see before you. But it’s a necessity to get to the place you need to go. These paintings never let me stay still. they’re a true process of laying out the heart intuitively, then stripping it down to almost nothing but the essence, and then laying it all out again until it says I’ve listened. 😅 but it always allows me to paint without overthinking. When the brain starts overtaking the heart it’s time to stop for the day. I’ll be showing progress in my stories this week so you can see what madness I’m up to. #1 .5msq
Another look at some recent linen work. 〰️ I only wish I had another set of hands to paint while I was at soccer training. Anyone else out there wonder how the $h/+ gets done when your kids schedule keeps you busier than your own? 🤦♀️ counting my blessings they still want me around. 😉

We have family this week and into next, so I’ll be unable to go live until mid next week, but I wanted to share some of the littles I’ve been working on!!!! 5” x 5”
Since starting last year I have wanted to do a whole series of night sky pieces. I laughed at myself because even when I try to be all loose and abstract I can’t seem to let go. 😂 All in good time l, right?
Huge shout out and big thanks to the lovely @prawduct for helping me work through my first attempt of the night sky. You are fabulous!
I think this could be a fun giveaway candidate, what do you think? Will share the whole piece in a few days 😍
Monday’s that keep me buried in paint are the best! The hanging gardens of Babylon are still telling me their story. Today I was thinking about the love story. What a man does for his woman. In this case, to build a garden that hangs from the sky. What a vision and lush escape it must have been. 🌿Ok, back to making dinner! 😂
