inspiration in new places


hello my friends. i hope you're enjoying your weekend and finding a little time to relax and enjoy some time with your family and friends.

i have a couple canvases that are in the works, and sometimes they stop talking to me.

today i made a really simple decision....i went into my studio, turned on some (loud) music and started an entirely new project! as i had hoped, this was all the inspiration i needed to shift my energy.

soon the new and the the existing canvases started chatting away....

quite literally a blank canvas! the handwritten note in the center is from a notebook that my aunt started when she moved. it's fun to included pieces that are meaningful to you even if no one else understands!

then i added a mix of color to bring out the texture in his mane. the king of the jungle still needs a some finishing touches, but he's beginning to shape up!

her background needed to be toned down a bit so that the her wings could pop. and her wings asked to be grounded a little bit so i used some white to pull the pieces together. and then i went in search of the ideal body and i think i found it.....

thanks for stopping by! xoxoxo

on any given day, you can find me in my studio dancing to loud 80s music, burning incense and building art full of texture, depth and layers.
