“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”
- Bob Ross

I could list off many Bob Ross quotes but this one is one of my favorites, because it is so true.
One of my favorite things about finger painting is that mistakes happen, a lot, but somehow things I view as a mistake, others view as beautiful. My “mistakes” seem to give my pieces more character, and as I’ve learned to embrace them, I’ve noticed growth in my art and abilities.
Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself or try something new, even if mistakes are made, they are forming you into something more beautiful as you push through and continue to grow.
I like to keep this guy on my easel when I paint, it reminds me to stay out of my head and embrace the happiness.
Embrace your happiness.

More blocking.
Light. Tunnel. 😍

I have the worst time coming up with names for my works sometimes.
Some have come to me right away, before I even place paint to canvas, others just escape me.
My beautiful niece came up with this one.
“Blush” 5in x 5in x 1.5in original oil painting on canvas is available on my Etsy shop along with the other littles.
These littles provided a lovely escape for me while working on my still unnamed massive commission. I am looking forward to doing some more littles when the opportunity arises, making them brought me peace.

If you’re not already having fun with your blocking and layers I highly recommend giving it a go, 😊

Two full weeks of travel and this sleepy artist is finally home and back in her studio.
Had an amazing time with family, though there wasn’t much opportunity for rest. After a 6 hour flight to Seattle on Monday and an 5.5 hour drive this morning back to Idaho (I left at 5am—I know, I am a fan of self inflicted torture) I am utterly pooped.
I will be taking a few days of rest and getting back in my groove before going back to painting live again. That said, I will also be taking a short break from social media for just a few days while I get organized and adjust back into my normal life routine.
You guys know what I mean? Anyone else feel like a zombie for a few days after returning home from travel? 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️
See you all in a few days, xoxo

Oh the things we artists do for our artworks, 😂. As you can imagine this position didn’t last long, but I had to make sure everything lined up and blended perfectly, 👌🏽

One of the many ways I have to hold the paint to get all the different colors in my river rocks, 😂😂

“Lilly” 5in x 5in x 1.5in Oil on stretched canvas, Finger painting and palette knives, is now dry and available up on my Etsy shop, link in bio.
I love this little, she came out so well once I finally allowed myself to stop thinking and just relax and let the work flow. I’m always in my head, doubting, analyzing, thinking, sometimes I just have to step back and chill.
Look for my other littles to be released over the next few days! 😊

Flash back to my first urban landscape, “Second Street.” My husband still misses this one, and to be honest I do too.
I am looking forward to putting some of my other urban scenes on canvas in the future to come.

There are so many new faces up around here, I wanted to take a moment to reach out and say hello! Thank you for joining me on this adventure of mine.
It has now been a little over a year that I have been professionally painting full time. Even in this one year I can look back at my works and see such growth, it really takes my breath away, and it excites me for the future to come.
All I can do apart from paint, (and also spend more time than I’d like to admit on my phone stumbling through the inter web of Instagram finding people that inspire me, and new random hashtags) is express my gratitude to God, and to all of you.
Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Your support of me and my work is incredible, and all I can do is continue to challenge and push myself as a person and artist, while also stopping to say, thank you.
Being on vacation and spending time with my family this week and into the next is providing me with some wonderful days of rest away from my studio, even though I miss my paints more than I thought I would.
At least I was able to bring my sketch book, and plan out my future works.
Happy Friday everyone, have a blessed weekend!
Xoxo
