There's something about the magic of a moonlit walk under the expanse of the sky that this painting seems to sum up quite well. Additionally, because Raccoon teaches the universal law of giving back, there is a benevolence to this painting and a gentle nudge to go make something better for someone.
And..... in a nod to the blue jay feathers I found earlier this week, there's a feather painted on the left hand edge of Borealis to help one speak their mind more clearly.
Thanks, as always, for following along on my painting journey,

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.

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.
