Just when you mentally prepare...

To minimize analysis paralysis in my Shop (TOO much to see), I’ve combined my most-loved styles into combo listings. See the listings here: www.KmBerggren.com

 In each listing you choose your print and size and wham bam: less digging. You can still browse deeper, but for quick heart-choice moments, I wanted to make things easier.

Mom Guilt - New Merch, Hoodies, V's and T's

A couple years ago I made this drawing and wrote these words, feeling them deeply. Posting this on Facebook/Instagram lost me many followers, which made me feel confused... but then seemed telling to me: we all deal with Mom Guilt, but we don’t all want to look it in the face, it seems 😊 As we move into the busy-Q4-Holiday-Back-to-School season, I wonder how many of us are feeling this monster right now...   I have had a LOT of people respond with gratitude for this image, and that reminds me that I’m not the only one battling this beast. And now he...

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...

Round Paintings & Prints

I have been so inspired by circles lately! And I just love seeing them all clustered together :) What has been inspiring YOU this week?   I have been creating a small series of one-of-a-kind original round paintings on 8x8 inch paper and releasing them first to my private KmBerggren Community on Facebook (you can ask to join, especially since something really neat is coming to that page this week!). Then I release them onto my Instagram page. There have been 10 so far, and today I have the 11th to share with you!   I’m taking buyers for these pieces...

Prioritizing & Son 🧡

Prioritizing & Son 🧡

Here’s an example, can you relate?
I’ll be painting in the studio – then I’ll decide to go fill my teacup. I’ll go in and the teapot water is cold or gone, so I’ll fill it and flip the button.

While it is heating up, I’ll put a couple kitchen-y things away, see a dirty towel and take it to the laundry room. There, I’ll remember that I have a load drying, so I check it. Re-fluff or even fold. Put some clothes away.

Then, when putting some towels away in the bathroom I’ll realize there is a little mess, so I’ll take care of that. I’ll remember I want to start a load, so I’ll run upstairs to see if there are any dirties up there. I’ll discover lights on – turn them off. Open blinds for plants  dust something with a piece of laundry…
