The new daydream piece I started recently, intending to add birds in some fashion to it, actuallylooks like a flower unfolding. My initial concept was a flock of birds taking shelter in a leafless shrub, and it evolved into the birth of something otherworldly and beautiful.

Art is so darned cool, how it plays out. Most of the time.

Meanwhile, if you are interested in seeing all the pieces inside the Songbird series, peekhere. And yes, I will combine shipping.

NEW PAINTING Tidal (Daydream 42)

"Tidal (Daydream 42)," 36" x 48" x 2", acrylics, graphite and canvas collaged on gallery wrap canvas, no need to frame. $2799 plus s&h. Returning collectors receive 10% off. I accept paypel, venmo and payment plans. Inquiries may always come to me. I believe this is an important painting (from my body of work to date). She's been done for a couple weeks, and I still feel that way, which doesn't always happen after the adrenaline rush of signing a piece. There's something here I can't quite define - or maybe I simply can't see it yet, but most definitely can feel it - persistence, honesty, faith?

NEW PAINTINGS Arianna and Tina (Songbirds 4 and 1)

At left, "Arianna (Songbird 4)," and at right "Tina (Songbird #1)," each 8x8x3/4 cradeled panel, acrylics and graphite, no need to frame, varnished and ready to fly into your home. $279 plus $20 s&h. Returning collectors receive 10% off. I accept paypel, venmo and payment plans. Inquiries may always come to me. I'm thinking of these birds, now, and how they might relate to other paintings. Using the bird as an entry point for a painting, inviting the you into the dream itself.  Or perhaps she becomes the presence that brings you back from your dream, back to reality but pleasantly changed from the experience.

Regardless, these little gems are evolving into something of their own while simultaneously inspiring and contributing to future ideas.

NEW PAINTINGS Barbra and Judy (Songbirds 2 and 3)

At left, "Barbra (Songbird #2)," and at right "Judy (Songbird #3)," each 8x8x3/4 cradeled panel, acrylics and graphite, no need to frame, varnished and ready to fly into your home. $279 plus $20 s&h. I accept paypel, venmo and payment plans. Inquiries may always come to me. PainterStanka Kordichas encouraged me to play with physical dimension and non-traditional brush marks. I thought I would start to practice this with some little songbirds, all puffed up and staying warm for the winter, like me in my five layers today.

There's a good amount of texture in here but not as much as I think Stanka was pushing me to do - baby steps, right? And I've pulled out some unconventional tools to paint with; I'm auditioning combinations of different ones with each painting. It's actually fun, seeing what sorts of marks happen under these circumstances, and seeing these little birds emerge with so much personality.

And then, when I was finishing up these two (a…

Here is another butterfly-in-flight inspired original painting. There is such an infinite variety to their wing shapes, patterning, and bodies. I may never run out of subject matter!

This is one of them, something I started in December that didn't get the adequate easel time she deserved until recently.

STUDIO NEWS January 2020

Happy New Year!! (They don't look like this anymore - it didn't take long for me to get paint on them, like the majority of my wardrobe)Studio News, January 2020 If you are reading this, you made it through the holidays, one of the most stressful times of the year. Congratulations on surviving and getting a start on the new decade.

How weird is that? We've got a new decade on our hands. I don't remember 2010 being that big of a deal, but I was pretty engrossed in raising my kids then, and social media was much quieter, too. As someone who's never watched a whole lot of television and currently limits their online time, I rather prefer things on the quieter side. I have enough voices already in my head, lol!

So here we are, feeling even more pressure because it's the start of a new year and a new decade, to make resolutions and throw out those habits that don't serve us well. I'm going to tell you something, though - each day is a new start and a chance to…
