Moving Forward~My newest painting

"Moving Forward " isn't that what we are all trying to do?  Working on this piece has really helped me to do just that.  It's 16x12 painted on a cradled birchwood panel with painted sides.  For sale click the link https://www.etsy.com/listing/227853888/original-still-life-painting-moving?ref=shop_home_active_1

Art and quote for the day.....

I'm still here.




"If you are frightened to move beyond what you already know, how will your soul ever grow? You truly learn when the unknown is explored."- Awakened Vibrations 
 




It's nice to have concerned customers.  Some of you have been wondering where I am.  I haven't been posting new work, blogging or doing much on Facebook.  Between my computer crashing and not backing up some critical files to Sam having a dental emergency it's been a tough two weeks.  I am grateful that I didn't loose everything but buying a new computer and learning new software and trying to get back to the rhythm of life has been hard.  Sam only has a temporary fix on his teeth so I am on edge again.   The real work will not be done for a month or so.  He has been doing so well and when he started going downhill behaviorally I became so discouraged again not knowing why or how to help.  It's such an emotional rollercoaster.  This time we figured it out but it isn't an instant fix.  He just went through a huge dental process in October so I thought it would be smooth sailing. If you've been following my blog over the years, I think by now  you know that Sam is my "art barometer." 
At the same time, we are embarking on some newly discovered frontiers for Sam and it's a bit scary.  I need to stay positive and strong for him and work through the possible road blocks and challenges.

Do You Believe In Magic? New Painting

The Sea Captain's Wife~New Work

When I look out my studio window all I see is white and it's not one of my most favor colors these days! The snow days have interfered with my shipping service but not my studio time and I'm grateful for that.  I am excited to be posting this painting today.  I have included a lot of symbolism and details I love. The Sea captain's Wife is 16x20 painted on a cradled birchwood panel with painted sides.  For sale in my etsy shop click the link
