Truely how I feel !

October 15, 2020

I have been looking at this poor torn flag for a few weeks. First I didn’t have a ladder to get up there to change it, then it was weather. Today I had everything I needed and I got it done in the cold with a few snow flakes coming down. It bothers me to see our flag so torn up. So this got me thinking when I drove up to replace this flag. I...

Changes

April 20, 2020

I was telling a friend about the painting and she suggested I look into what the meanings might be in the colours I chose, the lotus and the trees. I will offer up a little information about myself at this time. I generally paint pictures from some sort of reference, a photograph or another painting. Just to give me the basics to paint from. With some of my paintings in the last few years I...

April Newsletter – Different Times

April 20, 2020

WARNING, I’m going to be very honest and vulnerable,THIS MIGHT GET A LITTLE WOO WOO. (skip ahead if itʼs not for you)This whole pandemic issue sent me on a bit of a roller coaster ride. I started out the month thinking I was going to host some fun paint classes and ended up with an empty (of clients) studio. When the stay at home order came, I knew I had a ton of projects, new...

Blueberry Girl

February 12, 2020

A little while after I started my business, I was looking for an old book called Blueberries for Sal, when I came across this amazing book by Neil Gaiman called Blueberry Girl. Though it wasn’t Blueberry Broad, I felt this book was truly extraordinary. It surprised me how much this book spoke to me, sounded like my life but was actually written for a baby who wasn’t even born. Even more surprising I think was...

My Path is leading me

February 11, 2020

I felt it was time to remind people a little bit about me and where my path is leading me.For those of you who don’t know much about my background, I have been a long time caregiver.  Over the years I have supported my husband after his back injury, his recoveries from surgery, medical appointments and long term pain management.  My mother had Parkinson’s for over 10 years before she died and I during her...

Saying Goodbye can be hard to do.

April 2, 2019

There has been one rather big change in my life and I wanted to update everyone on that.  After 10 years of being a member of the Naked North Art Gallery & Gifts in Dryden, I have decided to step away.  I’ve loved my time there and I’m grateful of all the years I was able to work with the other amazing artists.  It’s a pretty impressive accomplishment to have been in business for 10...

Perfectionism

March 17, 2019

I have a question, is Perfectionism stopping you from being creative?  For me, it’s a YES!!! We are often told we need to do it perfectly, get it right, don’t make any mistakes and reach for standards that might just be unattainable.For me Perfectionism has often kept me stuck.  I feel like I have to have it all figured out, laid out and make no mistakes.  This happens in many areas of my life. Just...

It takes Practice

March 1, 2019

I had an interesting conversation with a lovely friend who is my accountability partner in business.  I was telling her how I struggle to explain what it is I do. That I offer paint classes but it’s so much more than that. It’s about coming out to play and create with paint, but that I find this actually scares people, especially if they have never done anything like it before. She told me the reason...
