Trust

IMG_3421

“Trust”, 8″ x 10″, $250

How do I keep moving forward in the uncertainty of this world?
I need to trust.

How can I know that everything will work out exactly as it is supposed to work out?
I need to trust.

How can I see that what I am doing is the right thing?
I need to trust.

How can I hear my own truth when the voices of others are so loud?
I need to trust.

How can I feel what is deep inside me, and allow it to enter the world?
I need to trust.

I trust that the universe will support me.
I trust that all that I need will be provided.
I trust in me.

I need to trust.

Show and Auction!

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

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.

Little Free Library

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!

Art Battle 20-minute Training Painting #3

Art Battle 20-minute Training Painting #3 – BEFORE

This was one of the 20-minute training paintings I did in preparation for Art Battle Alberta in Red Deer. It was originally really dark (see above), and I didn’t like it (pretty sure nobody else did, either!). I decided to work it some more and I am happy I did (see below).
