Artful Mess...

18x18 "believe" - acrylic on canvas

8x24 "bloom" - acrylic on canvas

I have to admit...I am addicted to color!  Lately, I just cannot get enough of it!  I am busy creating for an artist debut that I have coming up in June for a store in Greenville, SC called "The Canny Rooster"!  Needless to say, my goal is to plaster colorful, happy vibes all over their walls! I am also addicted to the thought of simplifying.  Although that is far from what my lifestyle is with my four girls!  I am truly the Queen of Chaos when it comes to managing my time and their schedule!  In the end, I feel that "single words" can act as powerful daily inspirations.  There is something child-like about them...  Dreamy too...

Oh...above is my littlest one...Curran! Guess what she did...although I was not surprised!  She pulled one of the paper plates full of paint off the art table and started creating her own art!  Well, she is starting young I guess!

Live Artfully,

Celebrate Motherhood - Mother/Child Mixed Media Workshop

Well...I am finally ready to open registration for my upcoming mother/child mixed media workshop set for Saturday, May 8th!  I thought it would be fun for a mother and child to work on a piece of art TOGETHER!  So...I created a very specific project in mind just for this celebrates being a mom as well!  I welcome mother and child combinations of all ages!  And, no art experience required!  I will have step by step instructions in place so that everyone can take home a fabulous 8 x 16 canvas that THEY created!  All supplies are included in the cost of the workshop!  Below is the project we will be working on and completing!  I hope to see everyone there!  You can register online!

Woohoo for creatives of all types everywhere!

4x12 canvas - "The World is my Canvas"

In the midst of creating madly for the Lake Eola Show in Orlando this weekend...I wanted to take a moment to share a canvas that I created this week! The world is a canvas to so many of us...whether we are creative painters, drawers, sewers, pottery enthusiasts, friends, parents, teachers, mentors, etc. - The world is ours and our imaginations are endless!

Have an artful day!
