I am deep in paint mode in the studio today. To give you a glance into my world and practice here's a throwback to an article last summer with @art_antiques_design https://www.art-antiques-design.com/art/776-annika-connor #AnnikaConnor #artistlife #studiovisit #inthestudio #painting

Playing at politics: I am the Ambassador to Iceland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ in an upcoming episode of Madame Secretary. Stay tuned to CBS to catch the episode when it airs. #annikaconnor #sagaftra #actresslife #iceland

We had a big photoshoot today in my studio for a collaboration with @kevinshahroozi fashions and @kevinqassemzad video. While the pros were off shooting the models with my paintings, I found a new muse for me in the beautiful stylist @camry_akeen. What do you think art lovers? Shall I try and convince her to model for one of my paintings? #annikaconnor #inthestudio #newmuse

Was talking with a friend about #mermaids today so I am re-sharing my #mermaid painting here. #AnnikaConnor #watercolor #paintingsforsale

The upside of being sick: I feel no guilt for staying in on a Saturday night to eat ice cream & hang out in the studio... ๐Ÿค’๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜ท

Welcome to the divot stop @theharrimancup polo!
What a fun and fantastic day!!! Huge thanks to all the fabulous friends who made the afternoon so entertaining, and high five to all the organizers of the #Harrimancup2017.

Because sometime I need to paint a giant painting just to remind myself how lovely life can be.... Here's a look into my studio at my newest almost finished painting: a self portrait from a lazy morning spent sipping coffee while enjoying a bubble bath ๐Ÿ›€ โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŽจ #annikaconnor #wip #artistlife #studiovisit #coffeelover #bubblebath #oilpainting #selfportrait

Oh the joys of a Friday spent in the studio #painting! #artistlife #annikaconnor #oilpainting

Mmmmm.... my favorite thing about a late call time: I feel no guilt about indulging in a lazy long morning spent sleeping in. ๐Ÿ˜ด๐ŸŽจ I am just waking up now and getting ready to head to Steiner Studios for another long day on set filming the TV show Gotham.

Today I am filming the TV show Gotham. Since no photos are allowed on set here is one of my paintings to illustrate the vibe of the day. #annikaconnor #watercolor #painting

Painters please check out my little new art video on @youtube "Espresso Soap: an Annika Connor Studio Experiment"

In the video I experiment with making Espresso Soap from used @cafebustelo coffee grinds in @chobani yogurt containers.
In this ending clip you can see me explain in delight that the studio experiment came out great.

I made this video with the goal in mind of one day becoming a modern female contemporary version of Bob Ross.

I have just started to play around with making some of my own little #painting related art videos, so I still have a lot to learn from a production stand point, but I hope you enjoy this, my latest clip

With the goal in mind of one day becoming a modern female contemporary version of Bob Ross, I have started to play around with making some of my own little #painting related art videos.
I still have a lot to learn from a production stand point, but here is my latest clip. This video is titled: "Espresso Soap: an Annika Connor Studio Experiment"
Watch a 1 minute intro to it here and see the full clip on @youtube at:

Hear no, see no, speak no resistance? Not me! It's going to take a lot more than one bad President to shake my faith in democracy.
Local Blue matters! New Yorkers: please remember to go vote today.

Midnight Reflections: On a day when all it seems I should do is pray: pray for those who perished, pray for those lost homes, pray for those surrounded by storms, pray in remembrance, and pray for peace. I decided to spend my day painting my prayers and using my brushes to voice my intentions.
In the silence of the studio today my two selves have been speaking to each other sharing hopes, fears, dreams, and desires.
This piece is still a work in progress. Though my conversation is not yet finished, I must pause for the night and let my paints dry.
As I walk away, turning my back to my easel I pray again for patience, a trait I lack but one which I am challenged to find often when in the studio.
The image comes from a memory and old photo taken of me on an Easter afternoon in 2006. A time long ago which I remember with a smile. #annikaconnor #praying #inthestudio #wip

No rest for this dreamer.... day dreams will be all I get today as I dash out of the house to make a 6:15am call time. ๐ŸŽฌ๐Ÿ˜ด๐ŸŽจToday's gig? Filming The Blacklist. To illustrate my sleep day dreaming mode here's my large watercolor #painting Colette.

Question for all my fellow insomniacs/married friends: If your partner has a more regular sleep schedule, does being married or living with a significant other help to cure insomnia?
I ask this as sometimes I wonder if my insomnia is amplified by the fact I am single.
As it stands nothing is stopping me from being productive and working in the middle of the night when I am wide awake.
Tonight as I toss and turn I can't help but wonder is finding a spouse the secret to a good night's rest?
Legend has it that Sleeping Beauty was awakened by a kiss from Prince Charming. This begs the question, could I pull a reverse Disney and get the opposite effect from my mate?
If marriage cures sleep deprivation it might be the best argument for the institution I have ever heard.

To the non snoring men out there who sleep with ease: should this hypothesis prove true let's redefine a marriage of convenience. I can't sleep, but I sure can cook. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ˜ด

Sigh/yawn: insomnia and early morning call times do NOT go well together. It feels way too early to be on the subway racing to set..... #artistlife

Self indulgence in the the studio: today I am knee deep in paint mode & working on another painting from this bubble bath series. #AnnikaConnor #bathtime #oilpainting

I spent last night with the dual Annika's looking over my shoulder tempting me back into the studio.
As they whispered new ideas in each ear, I could hear the winds of Fate changing my plans.

Goodbye beach weekend, hello work weekend.
Stay tuned for new paintings to come..... #AnnikaConnor #inthestudio #artistlife
