I went on vacation over the weekend. A getaway that involved airports and a change of climate and unplugging. I was a little hesitant to go, yes because of germs, but also for fear of interrupting the creative momentum I had built up.

What I didn't expect was the sheer joy of being in a new space with new things to see and experience and taste. Not having my never ending to do list rattling around in my head. Choosing my mental stimuli with my eyeballs and intentions rather than being fed via a newsfeed. Fresh air. More fresh air. 

And returning to the studio with a clear mind. Which, actually, allowed that momentum to pick up and gather speed without any speed bumps at all.

So this piece comes to you courtesy of trees draped with mosses and ivy, a peek at the top of the clouds, a rare hug from a 10 year old birthday boy and touching the moon.

Thanks, as always, for following along on my painting journey,

Be well,
Fondly, Kim

I need to learn more about the Inuit community and their ties to these bears - someone told me that it's rather mystical. I'd like to understand it better myself - and perhaps that will make me a better painter, too, of these delightfully engaging animals. Also, Friday (only two more wakeups!!), at 10am eastern, I will be doing a live painting demo in   my online classroom . I will have multiple cameras set up (both my easel and palette/work surface), giving each student a front row seat from the comfort of their own home, as I share - with real time q&a - how I respond to my world and turn

Brave means, in every uncertain moment, turning inward, feeling for the Knowing, and speaking it out loud. If you are uncomfortable—in deep pain, angry, yearning, confused—you don't have a problem, you have a life." Glennon Doyle Has anyone else been reading - and re-reading - their copy of   Untamed ? (and if you haven't read it yet, who's keeping you from doing so?!) Glennon talks about women as cheetahs regularly, and it's a visual I lean on when I'm feeling a little wobbly. I am a cheetah. Cheetahs don't wobble, they look things directly in the eye.  So when c

I accept Paypal, personal checks and payment plans.   Please message me.   After closing on the purchase of this house, the sellers invited us over to review all the various systems in place and talk about maintenance. It was a fabulous chance for us to learn about all the little details of this new property and get to know the couple who had lived here. While My Better Half was off learning about the sprinkler systems and the furnace, I got a tour of the property, the plantings and an introduction to the "neighbors." There's the 7 deer who bed down in the tree circle, Lucy the possum who does the walk of shame each morning when she returns home after a wild night on the town, James the groundhog, who has both a summer home and a winter den.
