Blossom and Bloom Show

After a small break to re-imagine and refill my well, I was back to exhibiting at the Blossom and Bloom Show last weekend, with new artwork.  The venue, the main hall at Union station, was gorgeous and with spring just blossoming all around, it felt like the perfect way to come out of hibernation.  Enjoy some pictures from by booth! 

Thank you to the angels in my life, my folks and friends who helped me out both emotionally and physically! I couldn't live my dream without you.  And to all those who stopped by that day, with such genuine interest and appreciation for my work, thank you from my heart!! Your conversation, energy and encouragement made my day!

 

Recent Mini Paintings

I have really been loving the mini paintings series.  The act of creating one small fragrant world ever Monday feels like a very tangible way that I can consistently engage with my inspirations and also with you! Here are the last few I've created, with a few words about each to let you know what was the mood behind them.  I hope you are enjoying this small but hopefully beautiful part of Mondays as much as I am.

"We Were Together..."

"We were together, I forget the rest" by Walt Whitman. It reminds me of that good feeling we are full of when we're spending time with our favourite people.

"Just Love" The inspiration for the quote was really simple. As I was looking through my stash of versus and writing that I love I was feeling like life can sometimes be so full and maybe even a little overwhelming. And during these times it really comes down to this...just love. Give me just love and I have just what I need. XO
