New Original In The Shop

“Lakeside Blue Hour, Dusk”

Lakeside Blue HourWM.jpg

Inspired by a secret getaway place of mine.

Tucked away, where very few even know, is a dreamy lake spot, complete with floating dock. It is minutes from my home, and open to the public. (Hence, I keep its location a top secret.) I go there to sketch and unwind and exhale and dream. I go there at all times of the day, but my favorite by far is just after sundown, during that summertime “blue hour”.

18x24” original, rendered in acrylic, conte, charcoal, and soft pastel, signed in my “signature” soft gold. This painting, and its luscious print (I truly wish you could see both, side by side!) are available here in my shop.

A big thank you to each of my collectors. The fact that you allow me to be one of your family’s artist-makers is never lost on me. It is a wonder and a privilege, with every original and print sold.

My New Creative Writing and Art Course Goes Live Today

My next course, my third in collaboration with Jeanne Oliver’s creative network, is titled:

Playing With Fire: Poetry and Paint As Kindling

To celebrate the launch, I designed a new offering, and it is up and available, in my shop, RIGHT NOW.

The image of the point of an arrow becoming the nib of a pen…it came to me in a flash last year, and quite simply, I was never the same.

I was inspired by the ultimate badass poet: King David in the Bible. I was also deeply impacted by the movement and momentum created in my life over the entire year 2018, when I took up journaling as if my life depended on it. I wrote down every word I heard the Lord say to me! (No exaggeration.)

It. was. game-changing.

And He proved every word true…all the way down to things I wrote down and dated, noting to myself that I sensed the Lord telling me it would come to pass “within the year”…and one year to the day later (June 28, 2019, in case anyone is curious) it was deeply, clearly brought to pass.

Take your words and make them arrows that you use to target your big, beautiful outcome. Let my new class (and maybe this shirt) remind and motivate you.
