There’s so much going on this fall, that I really ought to be blogging more. I know, I say that all the time. I’m getting tired of hearing myself say that I will blog more, so I won’t say it, yet. I’d really like to commit to once a week. Oh, fine. I commit. Once a week. There. Feel free to poke me if you don’t think I am keeping this commitment. :p
“Waterfall” 16″ x 20″
So, first thing… I will be auctioning off this painting, “Waterfall” (16″ x 20″) next week! To make sure you are in on the action, get your name down on my email list!
Every painting has layers of excitement, overlapped with fun and frosted with a little dancing. To watch how I cooked this one up, click below:
Secondly (there’s lots more, but I will save it all for my next post, which I committed to above, remember?), please swing by the Sophia Art Show this Friday and Saturday, and bring your friends! I will have tons of paintings, prints, cards (TONS of cards) and all kinds of goodies for your shopping and viewing pleasure! All the details are on the poster below.
Here are some new paintings I’ve cooked up in the studio. Scheduling in daily painting time is new for me, and I’m really enjoying it! Contact me for details.
“Climbing” 16″ x 20″ $500
Have you seen a Little Free Library pop up in your neighborhood? They are showing up everywhere and I love them. The idea is simple: Take a book, leave a book. That’s it. There is one in my old neighbourhood that is exclusively for children, made out of an old newspaper box, with a chalkboard painted on its side for children to draw on. I was recently asked to paint one for the Cougar Ridge community, and it is now up and running, and is one of four in the area! If you want to get your own, click here!
After that quick taste of summer, school has started and I am finally able to paint again! Yippee! I am scheduling in painting time (among all my other fun things to do) daily using my new calendar app. It’s funny to me that most people who asked me how often I paint thought it was daily, but it was usually only once or twice a week.
Finished up these two and there are more coming! These will be available in my Etsy shop soon, but until then, contact me if you are interested in purchasing.

SelfLove365: Day 241
My brain is a jumble, like it usually is after vacation, and there is so much to do and catch up on. When I am able to concentrate, I get through things much quicker. Allowing for breaks makes it all more doable, too.
I’m finding my daily meditations to be the best practice for this.
I’ve been on holiday, but still faithfully working in my squares:
