August 11

 
 
 
"It's You"
11" x 14" acrylic on canvas
 
Available here!
 
My Etsy Grand Opening Sale continues until August 15th!
Pop over and take a look, I've added a few 'flashback' pieces from years ago.
 
I hope August is treating you well.
The light is shifting here, shadows are longer and the light feels different, more golden?
Whatever it is makes me breath deeper and it feels like a promise that fall is right around the corner. 
 I want to listen to John Denver. 
And my grandfather.
 
love to all, 
jess

August 4th




It finally happened... paintbrush in my teacup.
I drank it anyway.
Happy Sunday!

August 1st ~ August Break Time!

 
 August is here,
That means it's time for August Break!
 
August 1st
 
 
My dear friend Edie Kynard  stopped by July's ArtWalk and took video and photos for me!! I was thrilled to see her and her granddaughter, Trevy.
I forgot to take a single photo this night- I greatly appreciate Edie capturing the memories for me.

"Flaunt Your Magic" is  a 36" x 36" piece on cradled birch panel.

My latest Wild Woman brought a Peacock with her.

Is there anything more remarkably beautiful than an peacock?!
The lore and symbolism surrounding this bird fascinates me.
It is said they can consume poisonous snakes and are immune to the venom. It was believed the Peacock turned the poison into the iridescence of their feathers - poison into beauty...

Just sit with that for a moment.

What if we all were that gifted?
What if we were able to transform the  'poisonous' situations and people in our life to something of such profound beauty?

 
Painting "Flaunt Your Magic"
 was so thrilling, I wasn't ready to be done painting peacocks!
These 4 little pieces are available in my etsy shop. 
I was delighted with how they turned out!
They are 6 x 6 on 1.5" deep canvas, they hang on the wall or sit about on shelves and are just precious!
