Sold!


Success has a simple formula: do your best, and people may like it. ~ Sam Ewing

I sold one of the pieces in my circle series ~ yeah! My brother-in-law surprised my sister with it for their 20th anniversary. They buy a piece of art to add to their home each year and I feel so honored that they bought one of my paintings. This one is named ‘Bursting’, inspired by the flower bursting open that lies under many layers.

Here’s the story of this particular painting. I started getting back into painting a few months ago ( after almost two years of not wanting to paint  )  I made myself go into my studio and do something even if it was just cleaning. While cleaning, I decided to organize all of my ‘rejects’ and see if any were calling me back. When I work on paper, I often start something that does not turn out like I intended… like this flower.

I knew I wanted to create something that was bright and full of energy, I spilled, sprayed, and brushed in more inks and watercolors and it still was not working for me. Then I decided to get rid of the flower, once I began adding circles things really started to flow and I started having fun painting again! I was getting back to that place that is so hard to put into words that place where I get lost in process.

Off to the studio to get lost again :)
