I was just talking with a woman who had not painted in six years. She had had breast cancer and gone through a few tough years. Her energy had been zapped and although she used to paint, here she was, unable to get back into the flow of her art again. This is a conversation I actually have often with women. And if you feel like you’ve lost your spark, or your ability to live in your joyful, creative place – you aren’t alone.

Amelia is really into the leaves that have started falling in our backyard. This weekend we practiced crunching them but I cannot wait until there are enough to pile up for her to jump in! My favorite colors of fall have to be the bright yellows of the aspens and I’m working on a series I’ll release in October inspired by their beautiful colors! Can’t wait to show you more!
There’s something extraordinary about the feeling of freedom that comes when putting paint to canvas with no agenda. I had a small spark of an idea about an ombré background, and the light, airy feel of how this one turned out was better than I expected. I hope you enjoy this quick little process video. Golden heavy body acrylic white for the win! It’s thick consistency added the perfect simple texture to give some dimension to the background.
