Silent Story, A Heart-Led Project ~ B3G1 Calendars

You may remember (and wonder about) my personal book project, Silent Story. The process hasn't stopped! I'm just only sharing about it in my Private Facebook Group - you can request to join if you'd like. We'd love to have you. (I'll be raffling off an original painting when we hit 500 members, and we are almost there!)   I have been working on this project for over 2 years now. In January I plan to launch a Kickstarter to get the word out... to give you the opportunity to pre-order books and/or original paintings from the book, and..... SCULPTURES!!...

Inktober - Your 2022 Art Calendar

Inktober - Your 2022 Art Calendar

I've been recording the process of my Inktober drawings this year, that has been interesting and different. It's fun telling a very short story with each drawing. You can hear the stories with each drawing here. This is my 5th year of Inktober. Sometimes I give the drawings away, sometimes (often) they turn into full paintings, sometimes (like last year) they inspire a WHOLE NEW collection of paintings!   I don't love this year's drawings, so far, but I'm just warming up :) Here is a video sampling of the first 5. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~     I have official photographs of...

Struggling With Likeness & 2022 Calendars 🧡

Today's Notes: ►Capturing Likeness►2022 Calendars are ready for pre-order!   It's fun to be inspired by specific families, their stories and their photos. I have created many 100s of custom paintings and have had clients send zero photos (just descriptions) up to 190 photos! Sometimes mothers share full birth stories, and others share only names and/or ages.   I draw from what I get AND from what I have inside. It's a challenge that I like. Sometimes I have 25 customs in process at a time, and sometimes just one. They all get their fair share of my time and heart, I...
