I told you earlier about doing a commissioned painting for the singer songwriter Darryl Purpose. Now I’m excited to receive my very own copy of the “Still the Birds” Darryl Purpose CD. My painting was used on the cover! It’s so fun to finally see the real thing and hold it in my hand. Wow, I’m so honored! I love Darryl’s music! I’m going to listen to it right after I post this. The art direction, design and layout of…

Still the birds painting

This is a little story of a commissioned painting I did for Darryl Purpose but it’s also a story of meeting Darryl, his music and how it’s touched me. When Darryl Purpose approached me to paint a commissioned painting to go on his upcoming new CD, I was thrilled! I immediately said yes! I’ve known Darryl from way back when I was living on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, Washington. That would be around 1996. I first met Darryl when…

Development of a painting – Protecting the Nest III

I was painting about a dozen canvases and pieces on wood while I was taking the Bloom True e-course by Flora Bowley. I’m still working on some of the pieces and they are developing and changing and don’t look anything like the way they started. It’s always interesting to me to watch a painting develop. In the future I’ll be posting some of these pieces to show you. What I love about the Bloom True e-course is you can take…

Be Here Now

Sometimes, when I’m waiting for something, I have to remind myself to “be here now”. To be mindful that the present is where it’s at. It’s easy to put myself into a stressful mindset, thinking about the future and where I want to be. And sometimes I can’t help myself to look back on the past to see how far I’ve been. It’s this tug of war of past and future and that is where the stress comes in. If…

The first one is titled “Two Ravens Sit and Reflect on the Waves.” Inspired from when we went to the beach the other day and watched the surfers…

My little red bird print,  “She Felt the Sum Beaming”,  is garnering some attention over on Etsy.com. She’s in a beautiful bird Treasury picked out by the Hola Greeting Card Company.
