Something Big

Y’all know I love my watercolors, but sometimes I need to make something big and to put all my energy into it. The other day I saw on social media that John challenged one of the Escapists to create a large abstract painting in under an hour. I love that type of challenge, as it’sContinue reading “Something Big”

Jin Chan

I woke up this morning to find that the energy had shifted. While I really felt this full moon – tiredness, unexplained sadness, weird dreams, the works! – I felt that today everything would be different.

Painting the oyster, of course, was immensely satisfying. So are the two new reviews I got for Storms of Malhado. Nothing like reviews to make my day! IContinue reading “Oyster Love”

Bobby is a Scorpio

This really sweet picture of Bobby came up in my Facebook memories today. It’s from two years ago when I was in the Escapist Mentorship Program and painting up a storm for my solo show, The Platform. Bobby, sweet loyal soul that he is, was hanging out in my studio offering moral support. In caseContinue reading “Bobby is a Scorpio”
