Feeling Fallish!

Crisp blue sky & a morning chill here today- it's beginning to feel like fall.
(think this would be a pretty rug)

National Coffee Day

By far my favorite beverage. (even over a glass of red wine)  I adore my coffee!

Here's a really old coffee piece I made.
(Since my early 20's it has been a daily ritual)

I sometimes request my foamed milk in the shape of a heart.
(thanks to my barista Antonio)

Wish on a STAR...

toss your troubles to the MOON!

I love this idea & it's just what I did last night.
Beautiful SUPER, blood, moon.  Did you see it?
Watched it holding Luca's hand & felt we were all part of 
something much bigger & brighter!

Patterned Trees

Over the years I've painted a lot of versions of patterned trees.  Something I enjoy reinventing over & over. (because I've sold several I have to keep the next rendition different than the past)
Fall is great inspiration for this one!

Bikes are fun to paint!  You can't buy Happiness but you can buy a BIKE.
(painted these in my sketchbook & then put them in repeat digitally /photoshop)

post for today.  Has a nice fall vibe to it.

Warm & Cool, A Little Art...

Today I'm sharing some little art.  It's approx. 2.5 wide so it's quick, easy & nothing to really over think.  I did this to participate in Victoria Johnson's #alittleart project she's featuring on instagram.
I took a hodge podge approach to the materials I used.
It's a collage piece made of:
-tissue paper
-bits of painted & patterned paper (painted with gouache)
-last but not least fun

Because they're so small it goes quickly. (which is why I ended up with 6)
Here's my Warm little art.

Here's my Cool little art

 Warm / Cool... It's all about the yin & the yang- right?

Happy Friday!

Come Fly with ME

Did you have a nice holiday weekend?
Back to it today full speed ahead.
Think these planes are headed to Weekendville.
A lovely little spot with a gentle breeze where your worries are
carried away like a kite in the wind.  Or, chopped up in the propeller.
(won't that be nice!)

Labor Day!

I'm sometimes asked what inspires me.
I draw much of my inspiration from everyday life.
(that's a good thing because it's readily accessible)
-differences between one another
-simple interactions
There's an opportunity to make every day great!  I try to remember that. (some days I muck it up)
Wishing you & yours a very happy Labor Day weekend!
