I’m obsessed with the feeling when something I create resonates with someone else to the point that they want it in their daily lives. It doesn’t get better than that guys! But what I’m also realizing about prints is that it’s a way for more people to experience my favorite paintings that I’ve created and they are a fabulous way to keep spreading the love that I pour into my paintings with the world! “Queen Anne’s Dusk” is one of my favorite paintings from last year that will be available in JUST TWO DAYS as a print for the first time. Don’t mind me, just getting a little excited over there... 💞🤗💞

Is this even REAL?✨ I’m so in love with how my “Lovely Rose” print turned out! I can’t wait to share my new collection of prints with you guys - only three more days!😍 It was such a treat to get to explore @kks_thefarm in Southold to find some greenery to photograph my prints with. When finding this spinach...I felt like I had hit the jackpot.🍀🍀

This print of my “Pink Frost” painting has been on my to do list for far to long. I’m so excited to have it be available for the very first time on Thursday March 28th! How beautiful does it look with one of my favorite @notestothewild photographs? Her ethereal and poetic photographs and captions speak to my soul and for some reason I felt like these two should live together. 😍✨💞

Thank you for all of your amazing birthday wishes yesterday! I’m so grateful to have all of you in my life! Today is all about daisies. They symbolize innocence, purity, and new beginnings. What a perfect flower to gaze at on the first full day of spring. 💞✨

Sometime I like to paint abstract. It loosens me up and frees up different parts of my body and brain. Painting is such a part of me now and it’s hard to describe what it feels like when something is complete in my mind. There is a constant conversation that is going on in my head when I paint of “that feels right”, or “I need that darker there because it needs more weight” or “it’s not balanced” and “that’s the color I needed”! It’s very intuitive and it trains you to LISTEN to yourself, act upon it, and trust your instincts. Abstract is a wonderful world to paint in because your intuitive voice is heightened because your painting and existing in a world of your own choosing that doesn’t have the same rules as the world that we live in. I feel like this painting is deeply connected to my soul and like me loves sitting in my studio’s extra sunny corner. ✨✨✨

Guy, I know you can’t see me...but, I’m literally jumping for joy over here! Why, you ask? Because I printed this beautiful art print myself! I made an investment in a wonderful fine art printer (thank you @jackiemaloney.artist for all of your guidance) and now I can create more affordable artwork for you!! I’m sooo excited about my Flower Print Launch on March 28th. Also, could this test print be any sweeter? 😍

Duryea’s Lobster Deck, painted over the last few afternoons. .
I’m so glad I was able to paint this iconic spot again. It’s a piece of Montauk’s history, and so many of us have fond memories here when it was just a simple take out spot to get a lobster roll and sit on the old dock. It’s been renovated, has turned into a “scene”, like much of the East End, but now is slated to be torn down and turned into a 6,500 sq ft restaurant complex. I hope the multi billionaire new owner can be stopped 😔

My painting “Eternal Pine” is now available on my website and I just installed it @liebcellars if you want to check it out in person! It’s one of my absolute favorites. I love the feeling and perspective and it just came together so beautifully while I was painting it. Love it when that happens! ✨🌲

SOLD: “Sleeping in the Forest”,
36”x24”. @liebcellars was the place to be this weekend and was so busy when I stopped by! I’m so excited to announce that two more paintings sold there this weekend. Im so thankful to the staff at @liebcellars who are soo amazing and so supportive of local artists. Cheers friends! 🥂
.
Written on the back of this painting is this beautiful poem written by Mary Oliver:
.
The earth remembered me, she 
took me back so tenderly, arranging 
her dark skirts, her pockets 
full of lichens and seeds. I slept 
as never before, a stone 
on the riverbed, nothing 
between me and the white fire of the stars but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths among the branches of the perfect trees. .
All night I heard the small kingdoms breathing around me, the insects, and the birds who do their work in the darkness. All night I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling with a luminous doom. .
By morning I had vanished at least a dozen times into something better.
.

‘Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love’s Nanny No.3, 2019’. End of day easel. Today’s painting was more difficult than the past 2 days. Couldn’t get into flow easily and things didn’t seem as natural. Might need a bit more work but glad to have persisted. I enjoy painting the face and seeing progress from painting more loosely. .

Wow where to begin with this story..... I created this chalkboard at @lovelanekitchen a few years ago. Carolyn Iannone who is an amazing human and great friend of mine asked me to illustrate the phrase, “Live a Beautiful Life,” it was a saying a beloved family member who died several years ago encouraged and reinforced before she passed. • • • fast forward to now! @northforkandknife has written an amazing post about how this board has come back to help and heal another person. From her post “Last year, Cindy Wells @cindibella64 received an email from her husband – an image of the Love Lane Kitchen sign. In the moment she received the message, she recalls wondering where he was sending it from, where the pretty sign was, where was he at that moment?Live a Beautiful Life. It was one of the final communications between them. He died shortly afterward. Months later, Cindy was having lunch at Love Lane Kitchen. She glanced up and saw the sign. She knew then, for the first time, where her husband was when he sent that final image to her. She contacted Kara and asked her to create a permanent piece, a replica of the Love Lane image, for her home.”

There aren’t words for how amazing it feels to have my work connect and heal.... and continue to do so even after it’s been created. I hope that these instances continue to happen and help others through difficult times. • • • another mind blowing side note.... @northforkandknife randomly chose this image to post a few days ago.... meanwhile it was actually at the framers getting ready for delivery TODAY. She didn’t know about this story so the timing couldn’t be more serendipitous ❤️🙌🏻😱🤯✨🤞🏻☺️😘🔥🌪❤️ go read the post on her blog @northforkandknife !

This is one of my new paintings “The Summer Day” (24”x24”, acrylic on canvas) and it was named after this fabulous Mary Oliver poem:
...
Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
—Mary Oliver

One of the advantages of being an artist is that you can paint your memories.
This is the master of ceremonies of 
Dia de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead

When Mexican families picnic with their dearly departed; having the departed’s favorite foods & playing his favorite music as if they were there
By the way, I like arroz con pollo & my favorite singer is Carlos Gardel

This is the painting that started my latest collection “Lost In The Garden”, so it will always have a special place in my heart. When I painted this painting I loved how it felt traveling between the warm light and the cool darkness so much, that I needed to paint more. As an artist whenever you feel that desire in your gut to create something, you have to honor and follow that feeling. I’m slowly getting better at hearing and listening to that inner voice and I can’t wait to see where it leads me next!

I am delighted to be the curator, along with Amy Worth, owner of The South Street Gallery, for an art show fundraiser at the end of April.

The fundraiser is for OLA, an organization founded in 2002 that has been at the forefront in advocating for our immigrant population of Eastern Long Island.

The fundraiser will be a 10 day exhibit at the Southampton Cultural Center and I invite artists to send their images to us and hopefully be part of this worthy event.

The cost to submit up to 3 images is $25 and if chosen, and sold, the artist gets 50% with the rest going to OLA.

To submit and for submission guidelines, please go to

www.thesouthstreetgallery.com/OLA

Looking forward to seeing your work! .

Early access to my “Lost In The Garden” Collection is going to be available to my email list at 10am this morning! So to all of my friends, don’t forget to check your email (even the promotions tab)! I have put so much thought and love into this collection - I hope you can feel it. ♥️🤗
....
This painting is called “WHEN I AM AMONG TREES” and I have written on the back of the canvas a beautiful poem by Mary Oliver that I felt truly speaks to what I was trying to convey in this painting:
....
When I am among the trees, 
especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks, and the pines, they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment, 
and never hurry through the world 
but walk slowly, and bow often. 
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,”
they say, “and you, too, have come
into the world to do this, to go easy,
to be filled with light, and to shine.
✨~Mary Oliver ✨

HELLOOO freshly framed beauties! 😍 I’m so happy with how these paintings on paper look framed! I love having artwork on paper “floated” when they are framed because that makes sure you can see all of the rough edges of the paper. I think the more you can see where the artist’s hand touched an original piece the more beautiful and interesting it is. Because after all, imperfections are what’s truly beautiful in life and in art. Who’s with me?! 😍🙋‍♀️ (Fine print: These frames are Emma tested, and Butters approved)

Today is install day at @liebcellars! @jennileemorris and I are going to lovingly pack up my 7 new large paintings with a smattering of smaller works and head over to @liebcellars to beautify their walls! ♥️ Check out my insta story later today for a sneak peek! 😉

About to pick up three beautiful freshly framed paintings on paper from @parthenonframing for my show this weekend! I can’t wait to see how they turned out. I kinda feel like a kid on Christmas morning whenever I see my art framed for the first time, except I paid for it...😂🙌🤩

Whenever I paint on canvas I always use stretched canvas that has a gallery wrapped edge, like the one in the photo. I prefer the gallery wrapped edge because I can either continue the painting around the edge or paint it a color that fits the painting. I love how it looks, but also it makes framing the painting an option instead of “a-must”. I think framing is so important and a gorgeous way to elevate any artwork, but it’s also expensive and a very personal choice, so I like to give my clients the option! xo

I’ve decided to name my upcoming solo show at @liebcellars “Lost in the Garden”. Gardens have their own magic about them, a place where humans and nature come together as one and nurture each other through beauty and energy. So understandably it’s easy to get lost in their peace, sanctuary, and light. But for me I love a lush garden, where nature is barely contained but encouraged to flourish, not orderly but WILD. ✨🙌

Who remembers the the movie “The Secret Garden”!? The one that stole my heart came out in 1993 and was based off of the magical novel by Frances Burnett. It is a work of beauty, poetry and deep mystery, and is about a place that only when you put your love out into the world you can then receive love and be healed by it. The imagery and beautiful garden scenes have stayed with me all these years and it has been a joy to paint some magical garden scenes of my own for this next collection. Who else loved the movie “Secret Garden” like me!? ♥️✨

My favorite poet Mary Oliver passed away recently. Her beautiful and poignant words not only taught me about the natural world but also about life. I treasure the gifts she left behind for all of us in the form of her poetry and to honor this gift I’m going to write one of her poems on the back of each of my new paintings. Here is an moving excerpt from her poem “When Death Come”:
...........
When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world. ~Mary Oliver *Rest In Peace*

✨ETERNAL: valid for all time; essentially unchanging✨ Trees to me completely embody this truly beautiful word. They grow slowly and patiently with very little noticeable changes to the human eye. They can live for hundreds of years existing in the same exact spot they were rooted. They live through countless storms that tear at their bodies and occasionally make them lose a limb, but they keep growing and living after the storm passes. They are a steady, constant, beautiful, but often an unnoticed presence in our daily lives. I believe they often do go so unnoticed because they are so ETERNAL to us. I would like to introduce you to my newest painting “Eternal Pine” that celebrates a tree’s amazing capacity to grow despite the storms it has been through. It just keeps growing slowly and quietly hoping one day to touch the sun.☀️

Sooo, want to hear an annoying fact about Instagram? Only 7% of you are seeing my posts! This makes me so sad because there are accounts that I have followed forever that are not showing up in my feed and those of you that are excited to see what I’m creating and when new collections are available - might not be in the loop! But in order to counter act this frustrating fact, you can sign up for my email list. My email list ALWAYS knows first about what is happening in my studio, along with some free things through out the year!
Could you guys do two things for me?:
1. Could you comment below “Hey Emma, I see you!” Below if my art is showing up in your feed? I want to see who is along for the ride! 🙋‍♀️
2. Sign up for my email list so you never miss out on anything and we can talk even more.
Thank you so so much!! You guys are amazing and I love you all. ✨😘

I thought I would give myself and nature a little reminder of what’s to come. “Remember nature...you use to look like this, let’s do that again.” You guys all talk to nature too, right...? 😂😍✨

“Peaceful Moment” watercolor 22x15
This is a voyage into visualization that began with the work of the artist Chen Chi who led me to his student Fred Wong who teaches at the Art Students League in New York. Enjoy!

I love looking closely at nature. Because from far away a field of wild flowers looks so peaceful and serene. But upon closer inspection it is a chaotic tangle of a variety of plants reaching to get closer to the sun. I love this contrast and what this chaotic beautiful mess brings to my mind is that humans are the same way. On the surface someone can appear serene or perfect but I kinda love that we all have these chaotic and messy tangles inside of ourselves all needing attention. I believe that our tangles and how we view and handle them is one of the most beautiful and complex parts of being human. Because after all, aren’t we all just reaching for the light?✨

Soo I have fully come to terms with the fact that... I often can’t have nice things. That rule includes the type of brushes I use. For years I have bought really nice EXPENSIVE brushes and for years I have neglected them, not washing them for months, forgetting about them and letting them dry out with paint still on them. But this year I have let myself buy cheap inexpensive brushes and I let myself beat them up and so now there is no stress if I accidentally leave them out overnight rendering them useless. It’s funny because I feel like these small steps of getting to know yourself and your process make such a big difference in my day to day. Any opportunity that I can identify and accept a part of myself that I had previously been fighting against...is a win in my book. *This painting is my current WIP for my upcoming collection available February 16th!*

So happy that this small piece went home to a new collector in Texas. :-) From my vantage point in a helicopter, I was able to capture the surface of the water as well as what lies below.

When we travel the path we encounter demons....some outside of us, some inside. This is my devouring demon.... 🔥Demons are gatekeepers, fiercely guarding the jewel of enlightenment.
