Description Of This Artwork
Message from the Artist: The idea of this painting urged me from bed one morning - straight to the easel. She was calling, warm and clever, with a baby to feed and whimsy in her eyes. We spent many whole days together, like good friends. I’ve been thinking a lot over the last year, about the kind of person I want to be, the kind of friend I want to be. I want to be the friend who reaches out, who is true, who is there. In the moment, true and authentic. It is also true that when we love like this, we sometimes lose. Today I read a quote that grounded me: “Anything You Lose From Being Honest, You Never Really Had.” ~ Light Watkins

This original painting caresses with warmth and delights with small jeweled tidbits, she’s a celebration of promises we make to ourselves. Promises we make to our loved ones, even silently.

  • Nothing compares to the rich and textured surface of an original painting on canvas. I started my career painting on board, but as soon as I had the opportunity to paint on canvas, I was hooked. I think of skin and bone and breath and life as I create these paintings, and my intention is that they will bless you and bring joy, presence and light into your home.
  • I choose the finest cotton canvases, gallery-wrapped and splined on the back, with no staples on the edges. Your beautiful painting on canvas will arrive wired and ready to hang.
