I've been on an art retreat

(actually I still AM on an art retreat) trying new things with my process. It's been surprising, the sorts of things I'm learning.

This one came about from a rainy morning spent with a mug of steaming tea, studying the drip lines and raindrops gathering in the foliage around the porch of our rental house. I decided to start with the leaves, then thought a wolf was showing up. But she decided to be a fox, and who am I to argue?

Yesterday I tried my hand at plein air painting on the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes coastline. Tonite I am upping the game and trying moonlit plein air painting. Tomorrow is another round panel of a fox and trees.... or maybe she'll be sand dunes.

Saturday I'll try to finish this week's work before driving back home on Sunday.

And come next week, it will be a final push for Fox Medicine, wiring, varnishing and finishing up all the last minute details so that I can drop my work at the gallery.

And then it's off for a magical celebration as my oldest marries one of my favoritest people in the world.

And then I return in time to attend the opening reception for my solo show Fox Medicine (6:30-8:30pm at Starkweather Arts Center in Romeo, Michigan).

And then I just might take a little time for myself. I think I've earned it!

Thanks so much for following along with my art journey, warmly, Kim

Tabby Kit

"Tabby Kit," 5" x 7", acrylics on a museum quality panel, depicting a tiny little orange striped guy from Morgue File . This painting can be yours for $289, which includes s&h inside the US. And in case you didn't see it, a little doodle of him is also available for sale here . Inquires may come directly to me .  Although it certainly doesn't FEEL like spring here (snow and ice and wind chills, brr!), I can tell that spring is coming. The mercury is rising a wee bit each day and the days are getting longer and brighter. Over the weekend we drove with the moonroof open just to feel the sun's meager and oh-so-very-welcome warmth (although the heat in the car was cranked, too, in the interest of full disclosure!). I wanted to work with spring-like colors today, and this little guy was still on my mind , so I grabbed a small panel and got to work. Of course, I also have Poppy to finish and some changes to make to another po

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
