Flower Being


I love how there is no plan for this art.

just lots of play and then sensing....

Sensing who wants to show up on the paper.

Feels like beings from other realms, who want

to live in our realm in the form of art.

Painting Flowers


Another flower landscape.

It is fun painting flowers on a snowy day.
The snow all melted away and it feels like autumn again. 

That is how autumn is in NW Montana, a lovely training for flowing with change, 28 times each day ;-)

Shall We Dance


Shall we dance


I am taking a class from Páivi of Peony and Parakeet

I love her art and she is a wonderful teacher. 

She has some videos on YouTube if you want to experience her teaching before considering a class. 


I woke to our second snowfall today, around 2"

Then it rained all day and still coming down into the night. 

My little birds were all wet:

And my fingers got SO cold. 

Tis glove season.

Open and Receive


He stepped from the autumn woods
to find her
offering golden light


Feels so good to complete a painting.
I started this in July
life had some other plans for me, besides painting.

Now I get to start another painting, wahoo

I hope you are all enjoying our new season.
There is something about the thresholds of seasons,
the air holds a different energy
two seasons greeting one another
dancing back and forth. 
A heightened sense of life perhaps. 

Here in NW Montana 
it feels as though we have truly entered autumn, 
summer has vanished.

Lovely autumn to you!

Painting available here.

Then they Appeared


When I do these paintings, I have no idea who will show up on the paper. Layers of color and design and waiting to see who lives in the shapes then bringing them to life. A bit like looking at clouds and seeing characters. 
I am temped to add a caption.... 
I would rather hear what you see going on between these two?

Summer Whimsy


  • I had no idea this piece would be an abstract.
  • The fun of the colors and details took over and this is what showed up on the paper. 
  • Some of the fun is experiencing the part of me come to life that vanished when someone told me:
  • Trees aren't pink
  • mountains are not that pointy
  • this is how to draw a flower

In those moments of someone thinking they knew what I was suppose to do with my art,  my innocence and freedom vanished. I am loving getting it back. It has a feeling of vitality and endless possibilities. 

( I am not sure how I got those dots to the left of my words... so i am not sure how to remove them)

Summer Solstice


As we enter summer
Earth is lush green, overflowing with leaves, even some mushrooms
Sky a mix of soft blue, white clouds and gray clouds ready to sprinkle rain down upon us.
Lovely solstice to you whether it be summer or winter.
