Sometimes pieces were made with an idea in mind right before it was necessary, a kind of internal preparation. A kind of gift from the future of awareness for a moment that's about to happen. Art teaches me so many things, and one of the most important is how to see-how to listen that is, with my eyes and notice what is around, within, and coming.
My intern is a potato.
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.

Sending love and encouragement to each and every one of you today. Holidays are reminders of both the beautiful and the heavy, so I hope above all, you can search for, find, and sit with the revery.
And the world rages on.
Progress on my Cebu flowerpecker for the upcoming Brink benefit show at @antlerpdx opening next Thursday! 20 percent d all proceeds benefit the @portlandaudubon society and all the work they do. ♥️🌿 I'm always honored to be a part of this show, hope to see you at the opening next week!
Mapping out something new. I always love how different they look before color, and how you have to adjust your eye to see just shapes and outlines of the values that will blend it all together. To see a way too long video of me painting, you can check out my story for a live feed recap of when I added the red...
To sit with my own mind
and not invite anyone into it.
To learn how i think, what i want,
who i am,
without the input of others.
Of social norms, the weight of expectations.
I want to know myself deeply and profoundly,
with a curiosity that allows me to see what's in there--
the good and the ugly.
and only then share
and be willing to change
and be changed.
🌿QUESTION / HELP!🌿 I'm updating the FAQ on my website. I'd love to know what questions y'all have that I could potentially answer? Anything you're rarin' to know about my work/process/life? I can't guarantee everything will end up on there but I'll certainly answer what I can and I'll try to make it interesting too... Thank you 💕
Don't delay! 🚨 Tomorrow is the last day for guaranteed shipping for Christmas. So much love to everyone who's ordered a print so far, my next batch is going out tomorrow ♥️🌲
So excited to have some of my pins at @altarpdx - they have an incredible selection of handmade goods and would be a perfect place to stop by to get something special while supporting local if you live in the Portland area. If you don't live around here, I still have some of these beauties in my online shop and am doing a batch of shipping right now. Thanks @altarpdx for this lovely photograph and for being a place that supports so many artists. 🖤
Any good songs out there for these two to slow dance to? I'm thinking they need a playlist. .
