A behind the scenes look at my last photo shoot with the talented @jeffreysklan. Please check him out and give him a follow! He is doing a project called “The Brushoff” photographing artists in Los Angeles. It really was one of those magical days for me, I had so much fun! My heart is full and so grateful for all these opportunities that come my way🙏🏻🎨💖.
The countdown is on! 3 more days until I launch my first mini-painting for the holidays. I will be launching 1 painting a day for 12 days. Each painting is inspired by a word. Each word is inspired by all the incredible women I’ve known in my life. They are brave and passionate and nurturing and resilient and determined. So keep checking back. I know you’re gonna find one you connect with. They will make amazing gifts. Who wants a candle when you can have some original art? 😉

Who will be the top dog in our October art contest??
Vote for your favorite! ✅
You guys did an amazing job bringing Penny’s dog back from the dead! ☠️ The question is, who did it best??
Find out this Thursday, Nov 14! We’ll be doing a live event to pick the top two entries.
The prompt was “The experiment worked! Penny was so relieved to have her dog back from the dead.”
Join us, it’ll be fun! The judges will be @jakeparker (the Inktober guy) and @leewhiteillo (the Slowvember guy)🧐🧐
Since you guys seemed to like the new format last time, we are gonna do it again this time! •
We’ll start with the top 16 competitors, and do successive rounds of judging where the audience will decide who moves on, until we end up with the final four. Then our judges will pick the top 2 victors!
So, the audience gets to vote!
This event is at 2pm MST on Nov 14. It’s for members only, be sure to check your email for the event link! •

Earlier this year I set up a small clay station with a folding table and began sculpting these clay pieces. I gave myself permission to explore new mediums and I was grateful for the break from my routine. I enjoyed the process of kneading and mixing colors to create these sculpted jewelry pieces.
Some of these jewelry pieces are available for purchase in the Solstice Shop.❄🌲❄ #linkinprofile
There are two stages to my paintings. The first is the actual painting. I rarely plan anything before I take a paintbrush to the canvas so this part takes concentration. No music, no podcasts, just painting. I'm pretty sure I pull some hideous concentration faces during this silent (and often stressful) phase.
Once the painting is finished I hand stitch onto the canvas. This part is much more relaxed. I tend to set up camp in front of the tv or in bed with a good audiobook and work away until my back hurts and I start to get grumpy 😂
I'm just getting to the end of the embroidery phase of a few new pieces and I'm itching to start the next round of painting!
Just in time for the first snow ❄️ I’ll have a batch of ornaments featuring snow-covered WV hilltops at this Saturday’s @wvhandcraftedcooperative market. I like options, so a few have “almost heaven 💛 west virginia” written on them in gold. These are based on my Allegheny Mountains painting - the original of which is still available!
Y’all don’t want to miss this show @thespace102 for @bigmediumaustin East Austin Studio Tour! I’ll have a community loom setup for all to enjoy, @mercedezrexdesigns will be showing a water marbling demonstration, we’ll have swag bags for the first 50 people each day, complimentary drinks and good vibes✨ Come out and support local art!
Here's another oldie from my current exhibition! This is also one of my favorites.

How often are you listening with everything you have? If I had to guess, I’d say I’m listening well about 20% of the time. That % goes up while playing music, but it’s truly my life’s mission to listen deeply to the people around me and respond with kindness. —
Take a look at your website and social media. Do the images of your work that you show portray the types of projects you want to be doing?
