My assistant @concernedowl is here in the studio today. She told me to fix the eyebrow on this portrait. So I did. And she was right, it's better. She credits beauty bloggers for teaching her proper eyebrow shaping techniques. πŸ˜‚ I love that! After all, if you can contour your face with makeup, you can contour a painting using all the same tricks and techniques! #alllearningisvaluable

The one on the left might be done? The one on the right was great and then I mucked it up. C'est la vie. Just means that I need to push through it. Going to let these guys marinate for a day or two and then make some decisions about bringing them to completion. #artisaprocess #wip

Super fun day with my quilt guild: Quilters Connection. It was free workshop day. In the morning I taught a class all about painting and printing on fabric. In the afternoon I took a class all about critiquing and evaluating quilts. It was an awesome day. #ilovelearning Swipe left to see more.

30 more minutes of play sped up to 30 seconds. Thought about not posting this video until I dragged these paintings out of the awkward "oh no I hate it" point. 😬But that just means they're not done. πŸ‘ #wip #thestruggleisreal We all struggle with work that gets ugly or might be "ruined." I think it's important to share all that ugly awkwardness to remind ourselves that it's a process. After all, they call it art "work" for a reason....😜

So proud! This is me and my artwork at the opening night of Big Print Little Print. πŸŽ‰ Keep swiping left and you'll see that I am incapable of posing politely as the camera keeps clicking! 😜 It's a great exhibit with a wide range of printing techniques. I was totally inspired by the artwork and ideas and look forward to trying some new things when I get home. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ It's at the @mosesianarts center until April 14.

After 9 days on the road, there's a mountain of work waiting for me. 😳 But I decided that all of that adulting can wait while I paint for half-an-hour and re-center myself. #paintingismyyoga This is 35 minutes shortened to 30 seconds. Paintings are still very much in progress.
