Busy? Hold Your People Close ~ Kindred Collection painting #14

Busy… too BUSY… That word has really bugged me for years. We definitely find ourselves caught up in lots of activities, work and responsibilities, but should we ever be too busy to connect with those we love? When Grandma is gone, will we regret that we didn’t take that afternoon to go visit with her? […]

2019 Motherhood Calendars ~ Soothing Grace ~ Kindred Collection

Happy Thursday ~ it’s back to school time, so there’s paint flying in the studio. Continuing the Kindred Collection, this little couplet came to me from out of nowhere – coaxed into being by a fresh open mind, a blank canvas and generous amounts of love and time. I knew as she emerged that this […]

Mid-Day Miracle ~ Here In My Soul ~ Kindred Collection Newbies

Last week brought some completely unexpected days of ER, ICU and worrying about my mama. She’s okay now, healing, but a few things occurred: 1) she called me when she fell and I was able to run to her side and get her to the ER and 2) my mind kept wandering to ‘what could […]

One way is to let go, physically. If I had abundant clutter in my physical house to […]

I probably let out too much, but I felt safe in the moment and I believe in NOT holding poison inside. When we scroll […]

Kindred Collection #4 ~ Fulfilled ~ Finding Balance

I’ve been breathing the act of painting lately ~ stopping to make meals and play with my kids ~ but mostly painting. I’m completely caught up in a couple projects. I wake thinking about painting and I fall asleep thinking about painting. I DRAG myself to the kitchen to make dinner… wishing I were painting. […]

Kindred Collection #3 ~ Sweet Everything & Summer

Sweet summer skies, sweet nestled babe, sweet breezy feelings. This is everything. Crystal blue eyes, a cozy orange jumpsuit, translucent flowers and the relief of a downhill. This is Summer. I just returned from 6 days with 10 girlfriends in California… so much summer and so much kindness. Hiking, wading, talking, eating. All good things. […]
