New work



 New work. This one was a journey πŸ’ͺ I started it back in August and then kept putting it back against the wall. I just didn’t know where I wanted to take it. If you can believe it it was going to be the start of a black and white series πŸ˜… Anyway, it finally came together yesterday. 36”x60” / acrylic on canvas. #landscapepainting #greenpainting #forestpainting #colourfulartwork

Happy New Year


 Don’t let the door hit you on the way out 2020πŸšͺGrateful of course for many, many things but also happy to see the back end of this loathsome year. 

Looking back at 2020 saw my painting take a bit of a backseat—sustaining concentration was often a challenge πŸ˜‘—but I started up a tea towel business that has been very gratifying. Definitely a plus. I also ran a kindness project (another plus). I discovered a love of Cheetos and Nerds (this has got to be a minus. Apparently desperate times do require desperate measures). I loved seeing all the “C’est va bien aller”s in people’s windows. I did not love that hugs and handshakes got cancelled. I loved seeing so many people out walking in the evenings. I did not love not being able to have people in our home. And on and on.

So here’s to 2021. May it be a kinder year. I wish each of you days filled with love, peace and belonging. A gentle spirit and curious, intelligent conversation. Laughter to chase away sadness. Drive out loneliness and ask for what you need. Onward.

I was talking to my husband yesterday about how I missed going out for a coffee and going to cafΓ©s and parks. Every day feels pretty similar and the calendar is empty. Last night on tv there was a scene where somebody bent close to someone and handed them a drink and I was like *woah on the social distancing—and she’s not even wiping that down!* lol
I guess we adapt fairly quickly to what is required of us but I sure miss being close to people. I think some days people are up and other days people are like “what the heck 😞”

I’ve been wondering if there’s a little something I could do that might spread a bit of sunshine. And then I thought of this: some nice mail. Pretty simple. 🀷‍♀️ If you or someone you know could use some surprise mail DM me and I’ll mail them a note with a small drawing, a poem or a favourite recipe. We’ll see how it goes! 😊 #kindness #surprisemail #thingswillgetbetter

I’ve been taken with all the rainbows taped in windows and hung on doors as a way of spreading hope and optimism during this pandemic. I’ve read it began in Italy and has spread worldwide. What a small but beautiful thing.🌈 I’ve decided to keep a photo journal of sorts of all the ones I see. Right now I’m in Montreal and the rainbows I’ve snapped are in my stories. 🌀🌈 Hope + love my friends πŸ’›

Day 10-13. Caught up on the challenge.
10 - Main inspo: Nature!
11 - On your table: Books
12 - Side job/ other life: I do have a very small other job. I’m at sensory panelist at a research station. But it is only 1.5hrs a week. What I love to do on the side though is BAKE! The last picture is the Yule log I made last Christmas. πŸ₯°
13 - Work in progress. Actually just starting the process so all I would have to show is a gessoed board ; ) Boring.

Prompts 4 & 5 for the #aprilforartists2020 challenge are (4) your preferred media and (5) in your hand.
I am loving my R&F oil sticks. I learned about them in my workshop with @nelsonpainter in Woodstock, NY this summer. Game changer!
And the second picture is a chocolate chip cookie from a batch I made last night. A new recipe showed up in my feed so I gave them a whirl. Pretty delicious. πŸͺ @andyseastcoastkitchen_
