Exploring colorful horse art

When I was a young girl, I was obsessed with horses, and not just My Little Ponies, but that was a big part of it! My room was decorated with horses and unicorns and I was constantly making horse art. I’m sure it started with coloring books, then there was the barnyard scene I won …

Portrait painting of daughter with camera

3 things I’ve learned from portrait painting

When I started experimenting with dog paintings a year ago, I never really thought about doing human portrait paintings. Dog portraits seem so low pressure, and it was just playing around mostly.

Abstract painting

Exploring abstract art

Eek! I haven’t really written in quite sometime now. I’ve been too busy painting! It’s funny how any sort of creative outlet seems to work for me and settle my mind. Whether blogging, writing free verse poetry when I’m too lazy to blog, painting, or even just posting on Instagram. I blogged on and off …
