how many kinds of honey bees?
how many kinds of pine trees?
different looking icelandic sheepdogs!
these are things i would like to find out and put in some of my paintings.
i decided Not to do the 144 panels i was after. I changed my mind. I found a more self loving, gentler way about doing my art. I was thinking 144 to get myself on track of which kind of materials would I use? what is the easiest, deepest, conservationist, soonest to hang way to do my painting.
i also discovered i may wish to cram images into some paintings and on others be more simplistic, almost nearly all white even.
I would rather now, not have the pressure to finish one painting a week for three years. tho maybe without the added pressure i was putting on myself i might even do more?
we will see :)
I am teaching myself about how to fly into my paintings inspired by self love, gentleness and grace.

Gearing up for new 2 x 4 panel. No minimalism here. I hope to cram in as many prints as I can. I keep saying I am going to do this. 2 winters ago I did go super minimalistic. I left prints and did straight acrylic.large landscapes.
More prints = more fun = more energy

I have re emerged into the land of wonderful watercolor painting. I have been here many times. I re found my direction while taking a trip up the road to the white mountains where I sat for 2 days in my room with my portable watercolor station. Prior to this event, I used to paint more elaborate overworked watercolors and prior to that, I used to bring in my supplies and stand and paint while I did substitute teaching for grades kinder to high in Sanborn Regional School systems. And before that, I also did them.

In my work I am using known and new structures and shapes and old and new ideas. I have one foot in the Future as I paint because I access it through recognizing it as I place I have been and that continues to be.
I have spent my life learning how to heal myself (largely through making art) and becoming one with my art materials so they are like an extension of my body and spirit. They flow out of me like my emotions of love and care, concern and best wishes and intentions for all living things.
I tend to paint animals and other things in landscapes that have the ability to trigger upliftment!!

When Dreams Come True
How working with a Painting as the Viewer Can Aid in Manifesting Your Wishes
How the substances of manifest creation appear is what is fun. Often it comes in a way not planned nor expected like how after two years of thinking it would be great to have some big heavy tires on my car a new set of snow tires leftover from last year’s model came up to be noticed at half the price.
A Painting with Symbology and Wish Intent
painting is about Love and the quality of caring, and speaking one's
truth. It also contains within it a
wish. A wish for community, belonging,
hearth and home:
