When shipping ‘lil minis means I can treat myself to one more cup! ☕️ 📦

Hey, there! I know it’s been a while since you heard from me; thanks so much for sticking around.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Putting down my phone has given me so much more space and time for the things I love. Time away from this tiny screen has allowed me to work more creatively and clearly, and has given me more hours and minutes for the fun things - summer walks with my girl, starting a potted garden on my porch, learning to cook new, healthier recipes and time spent at the neighborhood coffee shop with my favorite guy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m thankful for the quiet time away, but I’ve certainly missed you! Excited to reconnect, to keep sharing and to hear what you’re up to this week.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lots of new things *and artwork* headed my way - looking forward to sharing them with you soon!!

When wine country (thanks to good friends, sunny skies and green hills) feels *almost* like bourbon country... Thankful for a quick trip out west to enjoy the best views, weather and company.

After St. Patrick’s Day (and all the green beer), I cant help but miss this place.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a scene that will always stay with me - the tall, wild grasses, the beautiful stone ruins, the sky the most romantic shade of pink - and a scene that I’ll seek to capture over and over again in my work.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s no surprise that I’m already dreaming of ways to get back to this view, back to this experience. Ireland, I most definitely love you!

Soaking in ALL the sunshine and ALL the good music today. My kinda Thursday. #studioonbonnycastle 🎵: @thecarefulones

A few less dog treats, empty paint tubes and 10x the messiness means it’s been a pretty good week!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wrapping up this Friday a bit early to enjoy all the beautiful sunshine while it lasts. I’m planning to visit the park, to cook a good meal and to catch up on @cwjanethevirgin with @tjury13. (Anyone else a fan?!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t wait to get back here first thing Monday morning fully fueled by all the restfulness, joy and slow living that a weekend provides. #whyiloveweekends #thankfulforfridays #studioonbonnycastle

How good does this little one make a few more moments of sleep look?! (Double tap if all you really wanted to do was hit snooze this AM!) #imrighttherewithya
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In leu of catching more zZzZz’s, I’m taking some major design ques from the talented lady behind @housesevendesign to share "Three Ways To Style Artwork in Your Home" on my blog! (Link to read in profile)

I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful and don’t forget to make some art - write or draw to build or live as only you can. (Neil Gaiman)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Getting cozy over here at #studioonbonnycastle. Loving this quote lettered on the windows for our workshop by my talented friends at @rileyandko.

Celebrating this girl’s birthday a tad late and mine a little early with a morning walk to the studio, lots of treats, warm sunshine and an afternoon snooze. #rileygirl #studioonbonnycastle

Happy Valentine’s Day!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This holiday, much like Thanksgiving, always brings me back to gratitude and thankfulness. Valentine’s Day encourages me to pause and feel thankful for all the love, kindness and goodness within my community, friendships, family and marriage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And yes, the chocolate is great - but I love how Valentine’s Day is that yearly reminder and encouragement to be extra sweet to one another. Children exchanging handmade Valentine’s, friends making a point to gather together in the name of “Galentine’s”, partners celebrating years of marriage with a special night out... It really is a genuinely wonderful time of the year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m so glad this workshop gave friends and family the opportunity to experience something fun and new together.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big thanks to @bryanstarrcinematography for this beautiful video of our painting workshop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishing everyone a day filled with thankfulness for those you love most!

Because what’s a party without donuts? 🍩🙌🏼 Amiright?! Swipe to that 3rd photo...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All smiles as I relive my first two #stufioonbonnycastle painting workshops.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wanna come paint with me?? I fully believe that we were all made to CREATE and to live a creative life. What and how we create, whether that be though using paint brushes, cooking utensils, gardening pots or keys on a piano, can be messy... It can be imperfect... Sometimes the act of trying something new, showing up and welcoming a new experience is the art itself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my biggest goals for 2018 is to push myself to embrace new experiences to seek out opportunities to grow and learn.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’ve never really painted before or if you’re an old pro and want to get back to creating, I’d love to have you visit my studio and attend a workshop or a private art lesson. Let’s learn and grow together! (More info regarding workshops + private workshops + private lessons available on my website, link in profile).

It doesn’t get much better than celebrating #valentinesday early with pretty flowers, lots of paint and the ladies you love most! I had so much fun hosting two painting workshops this past weekend and watching you create BEAUTIFUL abstract minis inspired by @roseandhoneyfloral’s fun and colorful arrangements. Can’t wait to share more from these two special events soon. For now, here’s a little sneak peak of #kjworkshops 1 + 2!

Ahhh! Thanks to everyone who grabbed a ticket to my Girlfriends Valentine’s Painting Workshop (I can’t wait to paint together!!) and to everyone who expressed excitement about the workshop but were unable to grab tickets before they sold out.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I’ve decided to open up a *2nd workshop* (Sunday, February 11th from 2-4PM) to give you another opportunity to spend some time with your favorite ladies while learning to paint your very own abstract mini!! Gorgeous florals from @roseandhoneyfloral included. Can you tell that I’m excited about that?!
