Bicycle and Raven Art Painting Commission

I love making these bike and raven art pieces! This one was a commissioned painting. It was requested to use primary colors and put their little doggie in the painting. I think it is a fun piece and it was really fun to create! All my bicycle and raven paintings have a hidden word in the painting that is from the title of the piece. Sometimes the word is very obvious and this one’s word is “Ride.” You can see…

With the Arizona monsoons comes new growth

Our yard really comes alive with new growth during the Prescott, AZ monsoons. Who knew that it was going to rain so much in July when we moved here? We didn’t. I had never heard of the monsoons before. It can be beautiful blue skies in the morning and hot. Soon a thunderstorm will roll in and a deluge of rainfall will create rivers in our backyard. New growth where once there was just plain, dry dirt, springs forth life!…

Art + Healing continued

Inspiration and Dedication Every artist finds inspiration in a different way. For some, their creativity is as essential as breathing. It is an absolute necessity to life and frequently an unconscious but burning desire, part of their psyche and their persona. But this creativity simply has to be expressed and they come to know this yearning and hunger early on in life. Theirs is a gift that brings great joy and also a deeper understanding of the world around them.…

Art + Healing

I believe in art and healing. They go hand in hand as far as I’m concerned. From way back, I’ve felt that art had healing powers. It is why when I was in my late 30’s I decided to go back to school to become an art therapist (that’s another story). Although I didn’t become an “actual” art therapist, I’ve used art as a tool for my own healing and I’ve seen it help others lives as well. And with…

Whimsical Raven Painting titled “Mr. Raven, Meet Miss Web”

This raven painting cracks me up. When the title came to me, I just laughed. It seemed fitting. I love that my raven has a personality named Mr. Raven. He’s a bit mysterious, a bit devious, definitely the trickster! Print added to my Etsy Shop. Sharing is nice FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedinPinterestStumbleUponemailTumblr
