Living Free ~ Being Stretched


This is LIVING FREE ~ I’ve never done this before: this painting has the ultimate freedom to hang in 3 different directions ~ I LOVE her… From her rich black hair to their matching delicate bracelets. Mostly, I love that she stretched me. She introduced new insight, she asked me to try new things, and I love how it felt to listen (even though I was nervous).

This original painting has SOLD, because a collector who saw her on Facebook asked to claim her. YOU can do this too… if you ever see a piece in process (I post on Facebook and Instagram) and feel a connection, don’t hesitate to ask if you can snag her. I’ll let you know if someone else has already done so, or if the painting is a commissioned (pre-sold) piece. First Come First Served is how it has to be with these mini original paintings

See currently available original paintings, ready-to-ship, here.


At the same time, an additional new painting in process is STRETCHING me, too! This is the piece I told you about a couple weeks ago, the idea my 9 year old son presented me with and I latched onto. This painting is providing me with many challenges and puzzles, but the joy and anticipation of seeing her on the other side is so captivating that I just keep going. Living Free inspired me as to how I might want to finish this piece that I am calling From Moment To Moment.


Here is her newest image:


This is an original 15×30” painting on canvas and she will be available for $935 when complete (or earlier if someone decides to pre-snag her).

I am absolutely certain that I will LOVE her when she is done. I won’t stop until I do

I will continue sharing progress shots of From Moment To Moment on my Facebook Page ~ I love the connection and community that abounds there. I also, from time to time, share images from my personal life (like my cheesy boys in the leaves, that I posted yesterday!)

Let me know if you ever have any questions about anything. Even though I often forget to be thankful, I do LOVE this career path that has chosen me:  this crazy, active, intense, sometimes surprising, colorful, enriching, soul-feeding job of mother and painter. Thank YOU so much for sending your love, loyalty, feedback and connection my way.
