Go do that thing that is always on your mind and in your heart!
Just going with the flow, I let the watercolor paint form and take shape on paper until I found the image, The idea for a haunting formed during the process. – watercolor, pen on Canson 140lb paper
Without a plan, I just let the paint take form on paper and this image came forth, as the words “my mind is full” swirled in my head..

Every so often I like to change things up and create abstract art. I like the freedom and exploration of the process. The past few weeks I have been working on two mixed media paintings simultaneously. Working on these paintings felt like a tug of war, a love hate relationship, a labor of love with lots of juicy layers.

Aka Ladies Art Night or Wild Woman Creating..
The saying I read once “Find Your Tribe” has always stuck with me. I was lucky to meet and become friends with a great group of creative woman. Over the years we have grown to inspire each other, encourage and give support.
The past two years we have gathered our tribe for weekly art nights at a friends studio. This past Wednesday was our last night creating in this studio, because the building was sold.
Hopefully we will continue our art making in a new location… So whatever journey you are on now find your gang, your peeps or a friend that makes it that much better…
A very very quick marker sketch to capture our evening.
Oh hello darling, so lovely to see your face…
So it happens, that feeling, that mood which hijacks your body and clips your wings. Don’t dare fight it, just brush it off, keep moving and you will fly again.

This face swap feels a little sketchy to me. Having a little fun swapping faces with my drawings.
Happy Friday the 13th…
As I sit in front of a white blank page, wondering what to create next. I will just draw myself questioning myself, while I create myself….. My head hurts just thinking about it.
Do the things that bring you joy and fills your soul. Create your moments!
This image and the words were on my mind for days, I decided to draw it out and let it flow onto the page.
