Happy Sunday! We hope that you’ve had an amazing weekend. We’ve been prepping for our first ever wholesale show that starts THIS WEEK!! We’re talking new displays, new products, new designs. You name it! Can’t wait to show you all what’s in store!! #onedoodleatatime#psalm914
Fun little grouping of my work in fabulous company with @karabellaa & @theo_blue at Borghese Vineyard! Vineyards are still open in the winter, so if you’re out on the North Fork you should go check out a great group show. xo
Coffee-n-Cream. 🍼☕️ One of my favorite finicky glazes actually turned out my how I imagined.
So far, a 50/50 shot on this ivory. The other half has been a sweet surprise — contamination as the likely culprit. Less careful hands go in the glaze buckets, sometimes.
Working on Layla and Ringo sketches! These two pups are secretly best buds although the frumpy look in their eyes might make you think differently. It’s a bond sort of like Elmo and Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street 😂 ❤️
It’s rare that I create just for myself without thought of the end product, and even more rare that I share it with others. But last week’s #artstew52 prompt was to open a book to page 3 and pick a word. I opened Thirst by Mary Oliver. I don’t think I could ever express more eloquently than my favorite poet- below is her poem “Walking Home from Oak-Head”. Enjoy lovelies 💕
There is something
about the snow-laden sky
in the late afternoon
that brings to the heart elation
and the lovely meaninglessness
Whenever I get home - whenever -
somebody loves me there.
I stand in the same dark peace
as any pine tree,
or wander on slowly
like the still unhurried wind,
as for a gift,
for the snow to begin
which it does
at first casually,
Wherever else I live -
in music, in words,
in the fires of the heart,
I abide just as deeply
in this nameless, indivisible place,
which is falling apart now,
which is white and wild,
which is faithful beyond all our expressions of faith,
our deepest prayers.
Don't worry, sooner or later I'll be home.
Red-cheeked from the roused wind,
I'll stand in the doorway
stamping my boots and slapping my hands,
covered with stars.
#21daysinmyartworld Day 19: From the archives. How about my hi tech 80s childhood art, when the only way to ‘draw’ on a computer was typing ASCII code & printing on a dot matrix printer! I thought it was AMAZING! 🤣🤠
#21daysinmyartworld Day 18: Celebrate! My 1st big art celebration was when I won an award from @craft.act for my milk carton work (which you saw earlier). The prize was to be part of an exhibition. I created a few more works - all about the extinction of Aus native animals - and made my ‘debut’ in the art world. 📷 by Craft ACT. 🤠
It’s so encouraging to work with clients who have strong values and know what they care about. Just this week, I’ve gotten to work with a couple who wants to focus their wedding day intentionally on the people and faith involved in their lives; a bride who is putting together a wedding that honors her plant-based and environmentally friendly lifestyle; a business owner who supports and provides for her family through her creative gifts; and two realtors who genuinely love and cherish their clients. 💕 I want to encourage you that while your identity is NOT found in your work, you CAN put purpose in it. Dig a little deeper and listen a little closer. You can have an impact no matter what you’re doing!! / photo by the wonderful @kenzievictory

This #catalystwedge may very well be one of my favourite tools. It helps create lovely textured marks - I use it to make translucent marks, slice through paint, makes sharpe edges and smooths out bubbles in collage paper. Sharing as part of #21daysinmyartworld
🦄Stay Fierce🦄 Found this little gem at @target. I love surrounding myself with motivational art! 🎨 Staying fierce is important. We want to always be kind, BUT it’s important to fiercely believe and value yourself! #pinklover#stayfierce#selflove#entrepreneur
“'... I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go”!
Flying home to Oregon. While the sunshine will be greatly missed, I am very excited about what the next months hold. LOTS! of awesomeness!

Today's progress. Thought I would finish by now, but I added more things than I anticipated. I wasn't going to paint the shadows, but I really got into it. Wasn't going to retouch the face but I did. Loving this unexpected process.
Now it's time to eat because I've been living off of a coffee and green smoothie.

Idk why Instagram deleted this one:( is anyone else experiencing the app being really glitchy lately?
Dreaming + scheming with @ohhoneypaperco is probably one of my top 10 favorite things to do. So thrilled to be refreshing my brand with her brains and crazy talent. HK 💛s MM. pc: our friend @amandawphoto

[email protected][email protected] f%cker F&€K!!!! That’s how I felt after working on this all day yesterday so I did what any self respecting crazy person would do and spray painted the crap out of it and just walked away. Art-ing ain’t for sissies y’all. #illbeback#wip
Sometimes a blank canvas can be intimidating...you're afraid to mess up and do something you might regret. Try not to focus on that, and remember that, "if you stumble, just make it part of the dance" You've got this Tiders!
