What I'm working on

Happy New Year.  I'm back in the studio.  Starting off with a small piece this year.  Although I love painting all sorts of beautiful animals in  pretty places, my heart belongs to CATS. Despite the fact that  our beloved Theo and Gracie have knocked our  tree over, broken ornaments and kept us up all night playing hockey with marbles on the wood floors, I can't help but love painting them.

Self Expression 2016

Well I am wrapping up the year with an abstract self expression painting which I started a few months ago and decided to finish today.  The holidays are a difficult time for me.  Our son Sam has been having some challenging behaviors  lately and it breaks my heart because there isn't much I can do.  I am trying not to spiral downward into a negative place but it's hard.   
 People often ask me how do I paint so many pieces so quickly ?  I paint a lot.  Almost everyday for at least 6, 7 8 hours.  Painting is the one thing that helps me get away in my mind and thoughts. When I paint I don't think of all my troubles.   I find it comforting and healing.  I am grateful for it.  It's been a great year for my work and I appreciate all the kind words and support.

What I'm working on

 I am working on a 16x20 piece in which the title came into my head before I even began.  I love when that happens! (Not ready to show a sneak peak yet)  "The Poet's Dream"  I then realized that it comes from a line in the song American Pie by Don Mclean.  "The lovers cried and the poets dreamed." I still love that song although I haven't  heard it in a while.
I  have  one original available for sale ready to ship.  "Letting Go"  This painting would look wonderful in a children's room as well as a dining room space. It's 18x24 with painted sides.  Shipping is free on Etsy as well.
