A little progress on this watercolor repeat pattern- thinking about making some custom journals and this little gem would be the inside paper when you first crack the book open- maybe in time for Christmas. Also daydreaming about an entire room wrapped in these soft purple peonies- if only I were allowed in my apartment 😍. What do you want to see wrapped in purple flowers and snakes?
Just remember: some days are magic.

Sick in bed painting some wallpaper-some days that's how it goes. I'm thankful for the sun pouring in the windows, gentle songs to bring comfort to the soul beneath the skin and loved ones near by. My health is complicated and has never been the best, so there is a familiarity with this part of my wounded body, a kind of gentle comfort that comes from the reminder of inhabiting my body self fully, even if that is accompanied by pain. It is a teacher of what I can move through, how to rest, and how to let myself be taken care of by the wise and giving arms of others. There are days where I cannot find this sense of calm, but I feel lucky today is one where I can. To all you in bed today, I hope you can find that sense of self love behind the fear. ♥️
It's curious the bits that seem the most frail often carry the weight of our being. I'm carrying much thought today.

♥️ Mm! Big big thanks to all y'all who came out last night. It was so fun to hang and get real about the Internet- I appreciate your thoughtful questions about and perspectives on how social media effects our creative endeavors. Here's me with one of my co-panelists: the stunning mind Ashley Rodriguez @ashrod of Not Without Salt, a thoughtful food blog and gatherer of people to the table. Thanks @boonerodriguez for hosting yet another stellar Beast Talks! Looking forward to growing with y'all more in this digital wild west. ♥️

Just a little throwback to this stellar photo @antlerpdx took of my pink heron ceramic sculpture. The flowers were placed in as buds, and over the month they went from green pods to bloomed blossoms to hanging dried out petals barely clinging on- it was interesting to play with an element I use so often in my drawings in real time, leaving the composition to the unknown (much like the mysteries of life💛) .

Puzzles on Kickstarter! This is one of my favorite pieces I've made this year, for the puzzle company @theboneowl. They're running a Kickstarter right now selling these amazing 20x27 inch linen, 1000 piece puzzles for only $24 USD. They're a small company, pay their artists well, and have been such a delight to work with. I know I can't wait to get mine. There are only 4 days left on the campaign, so I'd you missed my first shout out, nows your chance. aaBig thank you to Jason for all he's done o make this campaign happen, and for just being a good dude. Hope y'all enjoy putting this monster together. ♥️ link is in @theboneowl 's profile!
Five prints left of this edition of 200. Ive been so overwhelmed by the response to this personal piece and feel honored that a little piece of my heart lives in so many of your homes. Thank you all for your constant support and encouragement. ♥️
