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 […]

2 brand new breastfeeding & babywearing paintings ~ studio mojo flowin’

I have two new mini original paintings to share with you. I have been a bit off track lately… consumed with information and interesting things to listen to in the studio while painting. It’s all good, but I had forgotten JUST HOW MUCH I ADORE (!!) painting while listening to music ~ nothing brings me back […]

Witnessing Brilliance ~ a vibrant ‘sleeping baby’ painting

I loved those days of cradling a zonked babe… as they drifted off into waves of dreamy magic. Do we realize the potential of the souls we wrap our arms around? The magic they will make? Witnessing Brilliance (an original 6×6″ painting) has JUST been released. Go get her in the Online Studio Shop while she […]

a new mama with 2 daughters painting ~ upcoming art fair event

This past month found me studying cave art from 17,000 years ago in France and Argentina (in prep for an art lesson in my sons’ classes). What attracted me to the cave art, was not the paintings of bulls and deer, it was the human handprints… The fact that human beings stood on that spot and […]

a new pregnancy painting ~ Crack My Heart Open

You know how some emotions can crack open our hearts after we’ve been doing the mundane-day-to-day for too long? How some feelings make us realize that we are *truly* alive, open our eyes and open our hearts and bring on a rush of awareness? My mama heart cracked completely open a few days ago after […]

Nothing Matters (yet, everything matters) ~ and a new mini original

I find myself asking my boys (& myself) a lot, in view of a decision or dilemma: Will this matter in an hour? A day, a week? Ten minutes?   Often the answer is an obvious ‘no’. After months of this, I am beginning to feel that nothing ‘really’ matters… It doesn’t matter if we […]

Adoration ~ cherishi...

Adoration ~ cherishing it all

I lay next to my boys at night, watching them sleep in peace & innocence ~ I stroke their sweet skin, their little bodies unencumbered by worries (and clothes). We’ve come so far. When they were 6 months old I wasn’t sure how I’d manage toddlerhood… When they were 2, I couldn’t imagine 4. When […]
