Today I’m in my studio painting. The snow is falling and the view is beautiful. I’m an artist but I don’t paint everyday. Some days I have freelance jobs where I’m working on the computer. Other days are spent submitting art, planning workshops or QuickBooks is on the agenda. The painting days are precious to me. •

My palette is getting a workout these days as I work on designs for @blueprintshows in May. My design process goes like this- I sketch my ideas on paper or sketchbook, then the design goes onto watercolor paper, I mix a color palette, play with the paints on a scrap piece, then painting begins (the best part). Once I’m happy with the piece it’s scanned and brought into photoshop. Where I’ll clean up the art or put it into repeat. •

I can’t believe that I will exhibiting at my third Blueprint Show this May. Seem like yesterday I was prepping for number one. I’ve learned so much and made amazing contacts in this industry because of the show. Working on new collections for the show for the next few months. If you don’t see me around then that’s why!

Last night at 730 pm I left this sweet girl out into my fenced yard. I unloaded the car and went to bring her in but she was gone. Houdini dog. Now it was dark and the coldest night yet and I combed the neighborhood in search of her. My son joined the search and 45 minutes later I got a call, she was at the neighbor’s house. He thought she was a deer in his yard, then she started barking. Thankfully she ran to him and he was able to call me. So scary...still trying to figure out how she got out...thank god she’s home. Now she’s all snuggled up on my current freelance project❤️. •

This year has taken me in directions I never imagined. While my focus was on my art and licensing, things took an amazing turn. I taught over 22 workshops in 2018. So much for goal setting! I’ve learned it’s best to just go with the flow. What did you learn this year? Can’t wait to see what the New Year will bring. Happy 2019 everyone! •

The sand was so white on our walk today that I thought fir a minute it was snow. Then I remembered we are in a Florida and it’s just the white sand beaches in Seagrove. It’s been great to relax, recharge and gather reference down here. Thanks bro.... •

I’m so excited to say I sold another French landscape today! I know it may not seem like such a big deal but it is to me!!! I put my heart, soul and love onto each of these little pieces. It makes my heart sing when someone responds to my art and wants it for their own! Today’s sale was the “Pigeonnerie” (lower left corner) which I started painting in France while on my amazing retreat with @emily_jeffords . Some days it’s hard to be an artist and solopreneur but I’ll ride the tide it’s all worth it. •

Loved all the Blue doors in France. I found this one while strolling through St. Remy. We had the best tour guide @vignevasion. If you are visiting Provence you must call and book a tour. Excited to launch my French landscapes Collection later this month. There may be some blue doors! •

I’m Happy it’s Friday! Are you? In honor of #fabricfriday here my best selling fabric pattern on @spoonflower . I’ve always loved ferns. I grew up in Northern Connecticut. Our property was very shady which is a perfect environment for ferns. They were everywhere and my house on Long Island has tons of ferns too! I love to sketch and paint them. •

I would just be lost without my 2 children. And I’m missing my son in the worst way today. Glad it’s November because that means he’ll be home from college soon. We can’t wait to see him. •

Sometimes you need just to go exploring. Yesterday I spent the afternoon wandering the greenhouses and painting exhibition of Georgia O’Keefe’s work from her time in Hawaii in 1939. She was commissioned by a pineapple company to create art for an upcoming ad campaign. Her husband didn’t think she should go but she did! The foliage in the greenhouses was lush and colorful many of these species were her inspirations. Her paintings and sketches were so unique and wonderful. We watched a video that documented her time on the islands and letters home to her husband. To say it was magical is an understatement. It was inspirational to experience the travels and works of a female artist in the 1930’s. She combined her commercial work and personal work so eloquently and bravely. Have you seen this exhibit? •

This is “Goldsmith’s Inlet” painted en Plein Aire in watercolor. When I was almost finished with this piece a big gust of wind picked it up and it landed in the water! I stayed calm pulled it out, and loved that the salt and the sea became part of the piece. I’ve learned to stay calm in situations like these. There’s a plan and it’ll all work out. This landscape is March in my new calendar, available for presale NOW!! Link in bio •
