Yes, I find flowers inspiring. Such beauty and function. I also like layers.
What to do when I can’t pull out a canvas and paint…I use Procreate on my iPad. It’s a great portable paint studio. I can still create layers of texture and layers of color and explore. Best of all I can get the work printed!
I had this whimsical beauty printed on a gallery wrapped canvas, 12×12 inches. Love it.
I use Printful which syncs with my Etsy shop.
Yes, I know, the vase would fall over . But who doesn’t love bunches and bunches of flowers?
The process is , well have a look…
I like to work intuitively, layering cool colors then warm colors. I add marks and shapes and just have freedom to explore.
Then the shapes start to show off and say, “Hey! This is what I want to be.” My work creating a butterfly garden with students and time on little adventures outside taking endless photos of the beauty that surrounds me heavily influences my painted world.
Peace and love,
I don’t know where my husband got this but it summed everything up… it’s time for a new adventure. And when followed by this…
Well, how can you resist?
So my family and my menagerie of paintings and drawings will be making a move of approximately 800 miles. I’m excited for new experiences and kicking some art into high gear.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? This just might be my crazy.
It also may be time to decide on a focus for my art. I hate the idea of being limited to a style or medium but being taken seriously is important. So, pencil?
Or paint and mixed media?

I found a way to keep myself very busy. I love being able to lose myself,for hours, and just listen to the universe and freely create. It’s a journey with many possible directions and no road map. Peace and love, lkb
Just a doodle as I sit with my little artists (and my biggest fans). I must have water on my mind.
Waking up for four days on the Atlantic was so relaxing and peaceful. I keep traveling back to the memory and creating a perfect meditative place. I find it is a necessity to create a calming place to escape the increasing toxicity of our world. A few moments of peace and I am ready to face the next hurdle.
