Back to my roots with rich colors in browns and pops of blue. Modern art for every space!
With Christmas rapidly approaching, I am knee deep in commission work and order fulfillment of art prints! But 2016 has been calling to me with an urge to create new pieces. I have a strong desire to return to abstract art for awhile and let my color monkey run free! Why wait? There is too much potential and the possibilities are endless….

There are several definitions for the word “vitality”. My favorite is the capacity for the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence. So the question is where does this “drive” come from? For me it comes from several places. There is a pure satisfaction in creating artwork that I know will bring happiness to other people. That keeps me going. But I also have a need to earn a living to pay my bills so I can eat. The former gives my life purpose and the later is necessary for motivation. At 45 I feel more “vitality” now than I ever have. It’s funny how in the first half of your life you have a lot of energy but less focus.
Enjoy my latest in my Transforming Energy series titled “Vitality”.

Just for me….A Garnet Sea. I took yesterday to create work for my soul….just expressing what “I” wanted to feel. A break from the custom work and show pieces….Felt so good! And now I share it with you….

I’ve got a birthday next month and I will be turning 45. I’m not old, but I am also no longer young. I am in the middle….middle aged as they say. I knew my body would start changing in my 40’s but what I never expected was for my attitudes to change dramatically. My mental state is undergoing the most transformation. Things that used to drive me crazy, no longer do. I am calm and at peace in so many situations now that used to get me totally worked up. I am patient with my daughter. I appreciate my husband a whole lot more. I am just more clear on what’s important in life. I woke up this morning realizing that for 45 years ALL of my needs have always been met. Sometimes that meant peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a game of Go Fish for a date. Sometimes it meant The Ritz. And there were times when I had to wait long periods of time to get some things I needed. I’ve had to work hard for sure and at times have enjoyed luxuries that as a kid I could only dream of. And also times where I had to sell everything I could to get groceries. My life has always given me everything to sustain me….in the good times and the bad. Right now one of the biggest changes I am feeling is with my art. I no longer see it as just a means to an end. Income. Don’t get me wrong, I like making enough to support myself and help my family, but I am feeling the joy in creating more and the satisfaction of making people happy. I am here to bring joy to other’s hearts. As history has proven, my needs will always be met, so I do not have to worry all of the time about making a “sale”. Here is to change!

Today’s “Looking Glass” offering is “Lady Venus” and “Abundant Life”…..so much to see here. When I look through this mirror I see a beautiful lady rising above the ocean into the earth….I also see a CAT looking upwards.
Life’s patterns are so perfectly depicted in the above piece. I see growth and renewal. I also see some very WISE eyes.
What do you see in these? Please share!

It has been said there are many roads but only one journey. I have always liked that. Right now I feel as if I am on an odyssey with my artwork. It is growing and expanding in directions that I never imagined it would. I see no limits to what I can do. I am also branching out from the traditional paint and list model. I am really getting into my digital work and find it comes to me with ease and joy. And best of all they are selling which gives me satisfaction in my work as well….I’ve got my creativity shoes on and will continue to see where this road takes me….
