I love hearing from you guys, and I’m always up for taking on a new creative challenge! If you have a project in mind and want some inspiration, drop me a line, and I’ll see what I can come up with!

And if you just want to say hello, that’s fine, too!

  • I'm calling this one done. It did not turn out how I envisioned it, but I learned a lot. Especially what NOT to do. Haha. But it was definitely good practice with oils.

  • My work space is a nightmare right now. I've taken a break from crafts to learn oil painting and there is a mess everywhere. I love my @theoriginalscrapbox for storing supplies and giving me a work station. But I'm stressing out about how I will clean it up when I'm done. Haha. What's your work station like?

  • New sketch for my next oil painting.
  • Tried something new. I was inspired by the quaking aspens up in the canyons. The yellows make me so happy. I'm struggling a bit with different oil painting techniques, and this one was particularly difficult, as I couldn't get the paint to do what I wanted. But I always enjoy experimenting with @winsorandnewton products. This is a much smaller painting, as well. But I kind of love it. #paint #art #artist #artoftheday #artistsofinstagram #artlife #oilpaint #nature #aspens #fall #autumn #canvas
  • So... I had what Bob Ross would call a "happy accident." Though it didn't feel very happy at the time. I moved my arm weird and flipped my entire paint pallette up and onto the painting. 🤬🤬 There was paint in all sorts of places. Boo! 
BUT there are no mistakes in art, right!? So I just added more! And I kind of love it. It reminds me of playing in the leaves. :) Anyway I'm done with it and looking forward to trying again at some point soon.

  • On my easel right now. Check out my stories to see more of the process. #oilpaint #oilpainting #onmyeasel #painting #art #artoftheday #artist #portrait #fantasyart #artistsofinstagram
  • New sketch for my next oil painting. I have just discovered Chocolate Sunflowers, and they are making me really happy! So I decided to try a portrait with them! Wish me luck! This could go very very wrong. Lol. #sketch #portrait #chocolatesunflowers #painting #oilpainting #oilpaint #canvas #art #artoftheday #artist #artistsofinstagram #fantasyart
  • Another oil painting. This time I followed along with a Bob Ross video for his painting "Triple View." Mine is not great, as I had a lot of trouble manipulating the paints and using a pallette knife for the first time. But as usual I learned a lot and was able to finish in about an hour. I just ordered a bunch of new @winsorandnewton paints so I can broaden my colors a bit.
