“Bring Out the Fine China” 36x36 acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. Day 2 of sharing more about each painting in the @aloftgreenville show:👩🏻🎨
👉Ginger jars really are artwork on their own, and in the past I’ve done florals with ginger jar vases, but I liked the idea of just painting ginger jars together as the subject of a painting. After priming the entire canvas with red (a process I do before each painting) I added a layered blues background. In person, there is great texture to this large painting! The jars were really fun to fill in pattern, which I made up based on pictures of real jars- but with a “marian-twist”. I love the red background peeking through and how the red and green books add a bright pop of color (besides blue and white) ☺️ For more details on this painting message me or check it out on my website! www.marianpouchart.com...or you can go see it in person at the WXYZ lounge at Aloft Greenville!
“I’d like to think I was a good influence on her, but my constant begging for her to accompany me for fast food or a cupcake isn’t exactly winning me any friendship awards. Recently (close to payday), when things were particularly treacherous at work we decided to grab McDonald’s and take it to the park and enjoy the sunshine. We grabbed those gloriously golden french fries and headed to a bench in the open air. We rehashed all the typical woes of work and moved on to what was going on with our freakishly similar family lives.”

Another week zooms by, and hubby is currently up in the air crossing continents again. I’m so happy to be the one down on the ground and on the road home this time. Been busy sweating out this crazy heat wave in real life and work life recently. So it feels especially apropos to finally post this lovely pic from last week’s trip to Singapore! Sometimes I forget I literally live on a tropical island, until I switch to another one. It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! :) #tgif everyone!! #upandaway#nofilter
The creative mind doesn’t obey the 9-5 standard, it’s always working.
This small pink phone has been such a blessing. It allows me tremendous flexibility and constant availability.
Stepped away from dinner last night to take a few more Pina colada orders. I heard it’s 85% sold out ... let me know if you haven’t gotten yours yet!
Had to switch things up with my workout this morning. My Apple TV was not cooperating so by the time I switched to my computer, a 60 minute workout was not going to happen. 🙏🏻❤️
I could have thrown in the towel, but did not. I switched to a 37 minute workout. Thank goodness for dry shampoo! Lol. 💕😃
I have been dealing with some inflammation and water retention issues this week so I am going to have to monitor what I am eating to see if I can figure out why. It started quite suddenly and I have not changed my eating that much. Super weird. So needless to say, I did not want to mess with my workout schedule too! 😊💜
Really shows that our bodies are like machines that are not always well oiled and we need to pay attention to them! #listentoyourbody#healthylifestyle#healthymom#fitnessjourney#athomeworkouts#fitnessmotivation#weightlossjourney#weightloss#busymomlife#busymom#momlife#workingmom

Life two kids is exponentially more difficult than one! To simply things, at least for the time being, I’ve designated every night as a particular dinner night (as healthy and clean as possible:
How do you simplify things?
I have had a rough couple weeks. I feel like I have been living in a pressure cooker and the insanity just keeps building and building and building. Yesterday it happened. Complete breakdown. Being a working mom is hard. Having a demanding job is hard. Being present for all of the people I love is hard. Realities of this life, like death and loss are hard. Right now, everything is hard. I can’t think of a single thing that is currently easy. These are the waves of life. They swell and crash. The tide comes in and goes out. In this moment of feeling washed up on the beach, I’m trying to be easy. Last night I planted flowers with Avi. Today I’m only going to work 8 hours. I’m going to eat a salad from my garden for dinner. This weekend I’m going to self care the fuck out of myself. I’ll ride the waves up from there ✌️💚
