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

New Series: Mini Paintings

It's been a bit since I last wrote a post about my own artwork.  For a good reason!  I've been busy making plenty of new art to share with you all! My latest series is a little one that's really been a lot of fun to create.  It all started with a good friend mentioning a few times that she would love to some some of my petal work paintings in miniature.  I hadn’t really experimented with a much smaller size because I love the feeling of spaciousness, a large sheet of watercolour paper provides.  The flowers seem to just want to spread out over the surface.  But I decided to challenge myself.  Winter makes me want to get cozy and working small felt good.  To my surprise, I love it!  I can create tiny little worlds of beauty to be shared.   I’m pairing each print with a quote or verse that somehow inspires me or I fund uplifting.  I hope it has the same effect for you. xo

Which is your favourite?
