This is one of my favorite early birds. A great start to the week. #hopeitmakesyousmile #birdsofinstagram #earlybirdpainting

🎉GIVEAWAY TIME🎉 @hillarybutlerfineart and @dorothyart both agreed in episode 6 of #positivelycreativepodcast that @austinkleon 's book, #steallikeanartist is a staple for any career driven artist! (Or maybe not so career driven. After this read you will be!) ***
"My favorite gift for creatives. Sneak preview: use your hands vs technology in the creative process, make a practice of gathering and surrounding yourself with killer work you respect that will help shape the direction you go, be boring and take care of yourself, and side projects/ hobbies push creativity most of all. It's just so good!" -Hillary Butler 📸cred: @hillarybutlerfineart ***

Just when I stepped my game up, more opportunities revealed itself. Let's do this! I don't fear success, I look back at everything I've been through and I know It's molded me for what's ahead. #WinnersMentality #PositivelyCreative

In progress- my aim is off on this one, but I'm not giving up! Have a great Monday! #motivationmonday #aimhigh #simplify #imaginationart #wip #dontgiveup inspired by photo by @skye_taten

I absolutely love my early morning daily paintings but I only have a limited amount of time to paint. And I love painting large, too. I've found myself in need of some larger works (more on that later), so a few days a week I will be dedicating my mornings to big paintings. I'm hoping to squeeze in a couple of smalls too. #itsallfun #oilcolorxo #ohwowyes #workinprogress

The best thing we can do as women is support each other on the journey to success. We will all fail at times along the way but we will also make huge strides that push us to the next level. I think it's important to share not only stories about our successes but also about how we learned from our failures. Can't wait to listen to these amazing women's stories! Thank you to @dorothyart for understanding the importance of creating content to inspire all of us!

Hey @positivelycreativepodcast, here's some positive creativity--a watercolor for my dear friend @mkcarnesy who has taught me 98% of what I know about gardening, is one of like 4 women I know who can/want to talk about Hegel & other nerdy philosophy stuff, and wears cool clothes literally any time of day or night. And picks vegetables right out of the ground and gives them to me. 🎨🌱👓 #positivelycreative.

New paint brushes, new subject material, life is good! Oui, oui!

Is there such a thing as throw back Saturday? Well there is today!! As we all head off in our different directions on family vacations it reminded me of this sweet painting! I've known this family for years and when the 'grown' kids asked me to recreate this vacation pic from YEARS ago I was thrilled to do it! 💕 Enjoy today- wherever it has led you!

I had a friend on the last post who asked if you guys could see more pictures of my story! Here you go @tancollierart Three generations of art in this island home. My mother's church, my grandmother's house portrait, my birds. Tears came as I watched mine go up!

I had such a fun time painting our church, #IdlewildPresbyterian for a recent commission. I'm not doing as many commissions as I have in the past, but it was a fun and inviting studio session. There will be limited commission spots for Christmas, so be on the lookout for those if you'd like to give a truly one of a kind painting!

🐶HOORAY FOR PUPS!🐶
I gathered a collection for the past two days searching Antique malls for these lil puppies. They will all have their own little dog house shadow boxes and will debut at #CooperYoungFest September 16th! Yay for pup parties! ❤️Tag a dog lover below!❤️

Embrace Yo Mess #itspretty #art #studiovibes #weekendyay I'll show you my mess- see my story!

I love blue hydrangea and was thrilled to be commissioned to paint one. It was so much fun! #hopeshelovesit #hydrangea #flowersofinstagram

All about voluptuous petals, razzle dazzle and shimmer of light and early morning paintings...read about my #artcrushxo for this week, Katrina Linn who is featured on my blog this week. (See link in bio) Enjoy! #artcrush

So I'm back on an old series of birds I did before I quit painting years ago. I took a long break from my brushes while changing a lot of diapers. When I lost my Grandmother, who was an artist, I decided to pick them up again. I wear many hats. Wife, Mother of four, career, artist, and so on. I do my best to juggle it all. It's definitely busy and definitely hard. I think that's one reason I paint with vivid color. It makes me feel good. I remember singing a solo called "Happy" when I was little. That song stuck. With that said, I try and look on the bright side! Color helps me feel better.

Oh deer! I am so tired today! Raise your hand if you're pumped for Friday?! 🤗

I just realized that it's #nationallollipopday This is a sweet lollipop from @centralmarketlancaster Hope you have a sweet day! #hopeitmakesyousmile #lollipop #candyart

Feeling #positivelycreative while working on this fun commission of a family represented as penguins. I really tried to capture the personality of each family member in this piece. I'm tried to portray each member of the family in this. Daddy looking out. Guarding and protecting his family. Mama looking down, raising and nurturing their children. Oldest big sister serving as a little mama to her younger siblings. Second born son looking adoringly at his parents for guidance in life and mimicking daddy. Curious middle daughter posing for the camera like the cutie that she is and the youngest son being the baby and spreading his wings to fly. Thank you for the opportunity to paint your incredible family @ordymomma ! ❤️ #erikarobertsstudio ❤️.

Today I got caught up playing with some pebbles, sea glass and terra-cotta pieces that I collected on a beach in Cinque Terra, Italy. When creativity strikes ... don't you dare turn it away. #reminiscing #pebbles #seaglass #terracotta #photography #positivelycreative #justgowithit

It's humpday, honeys! #sweetbeat #getupandgetit #donthideit
