My Art

ARTsy wednesday

been slowly adding to my collection of acrylic portraits

i think twenty nineteen will go down as the year when i painted the most faces and that makes me feel happy and accomplished

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

this girl is on her way to her new home in seattle

ARTsy wednesday

well, i bought a pack of eight small canvases and i said i was going to paint a small collection of acrylic portraits and i did it!

i know it may not seem like a lot but as most of you must know yourselves, time is a luxury these days

i compromised my morning walk/run in order to paint but it was totally worth it!

it felt wonderful to paint every day and to be able to fill a canvas with something

i may buy another pack of eight canvases and keep going….

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

around here

temperatures changed drastically this week

it was in the low forties in the mornings (and almost all day yesterday) and it’s in the thirties right now (it’s a little after six in the morning)

it’s like we went from summer straight to winter (let’s not talk about how it already snowed in west virginia)

but this crazy fast change in weather won’t stay

true autumn weather is in the forecast and i am looking forward to it

hope you guys are enjoying the change of season where you are

happy friday friends!

early morning walks and preferred architecture. clean, modern, brick free

sevilla memories

a playdate

miami dog always looking for the sunshine. i am guilty of the same

autumn light and shadows

saturday morning hammock snuggles

that tiny beauty mark by her eyeball tho

reading trump tweets

my collection of acrylic portraits is growing. as of yesterday there are six

Lily’s amazing elephant

all the green babies will soon need to come inside but i am putting it off as much as i can because this space will look sad and empty without them

looks and moods

around here

this week we were all a little off trying to fight whatever little cold was trying to get us

we were all a little slower, a little achy and a little sniffly

but, we pushed on through and kept going with our regular routine

looking forward to the weekend so we can just take it easy and get some extra sleep

happy friday friends!

last friday’s happy hour with my favorite girl

our hibiscus keep on blooming and it always makes me so happy

obsessed with being a contortionist

we took Lily to the circus and not only did she dress the part but she found her second family

i took my things to the sunday market and sold a bunch of stuff

i also brought home a new pitcher (it was free)

orange season

panama city beach memories. so good!

miami dog who always finds the sunny spots

i started painting with acrylics this week. felt so freeing!

new stamp and blockprint by Lily. she’s slowly getting ready for the big crafty fair in december

ARTsy wednesday

wow! friends, the last artsy wednesday post was… well, june of this year but, the one before that was may of twenty eighteen!

do you remember long ago when they were a weekly thing?

anyway, it was rainy and gloomy yesterday so i decided to stay in pajamas and doodle a little

it had been a very very long time and it felt great once i got passed the nervous stage of trying to remember how to draw again

it always feels good to turn a blank piece of paper/canvas into something

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

a morning in wynwood

how about some amazing (and free) art on huge walls to brighten up the week?

you guys know how much i love wynwood

and even if it is just a quick drive by, i need to visit/see it every time we are in miami

on this particular morning, we started with acai bowls and took our time looking at all the new art and shops (not pictured)

hope you are all having a great week so far!

a saturday night in miami with good friends and Sheila Hicks

one of the things i have always loved about miami is the art

it is everywhere

in the architecture, painted on large walls free for everyone to see, in so many art galleries and museums….

miami is art

after a day at the pool with the girls, i dropped them off at Savannah’s house for a sleepover and had a big girls night out in southbeach

it started with the opening of Sheila Hicks at the bass museum and it ended with a walk down memory lane through the hotels on collins avenue where i used to hang out back in the day

i miss those kind of miami nights

i saw more art and color in one day/night in miami than i have living here in asheville for the past almost four years

thus the reason why my soul aches living here in these mountains

especially in the winter time

happy friday friends!

Ugo Rondinone, miami mountain. entering the bass. i want to go see these in the nevada desert

Sheila Hicks. she blew my mind. and to make it all even better, she was present at her opening

my good friend Jane and i

a wonderful exhibit by the Haas brothers

all beaded

with my friend and ex co-worker Jocey at the shoreclub hotel where i worked at a high-end retail store for six years

at one of my favorite hotels, the national where we had a drink, took in some live music and the color changing pools
