What goes up…

I’ve been dealing with work stress and personal challenges lately, which has been making me feel all crummy. I hate feeling inadequate (wait–who doesn’t?) and it just gets me really frustrated at times when I can’t do something. It also doesn’t help that I’m one of those people who (used to) pride themselves in being…

Like Sunday Morning

Sometimes, love is just easy. Fun. Carefree; –I think that’s how it should be. Like Sunday Morning (2017). 30″x30″.Β Acrylic on canvas This piece took two whole months to get through! It doesn’t seem like it, but goodness. There was a lot of self-criticism, doubt, and downright nitty-gritty perseverate worry on my part during the process…

Pyro

It is done. Whew! This painting took longer than I wanted and expected. But it was different from my previous works, and it stumped me quite a bit for some time. I didn’t want it to be harsh, gritty, or heavy. I wanted something new, like a nice, light, and refreshing breeze of playfulness. So…

With Envy

Updates on the current painting in progress:            Painting session today was productive! Got some good passages done and sections built with more layers. Overall, quite happy with the progress, but still working on getting it all going together in one rhythmic flow. Having a tough time balancing the ethereal feel of the…
