Mermaids ♥ Tomorrow!

The last couple weeks on Facebook and Instagram I’ve been sharing the process of my new original mermaid paintings. They are done and will all be released TOMORROW at 6pm PST. They'll be released here. Watch the release email for another surprise tomorrow, too. Mermaids aren't new for me, I've created many, but these women are earthier... different. I hope to be always open to renewal and reinvention when it comes to my art.

What's Most Important? ♥ Empathy ♥ New WIP

Happy December! It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day WAVES of things to do, isn’t it?   Especially this time of year. We can get carried away in the tide of to-dos and all the sudden realize that we haven’t been present in our own minds & moments for… how long? An hour or more? Gosh, maybe even a day. I believe this is why the days “fly by” as we like to say. And then the weeks fly by, and the years…   Personally, when I’m on the treadmill-slash-roller coaster of one-thing-after-another I try to stop...
