- Ahh creative inspiration. I feel like I've been obsessing with it lately. I have been collecting images, spending time in book stores and doing drawing studies. Do you find yourself sometimes consuming a lot of stuff just cause you are craving it? I am and think I may be ready for a new direction or my tastes are shifting a bit. Not sure exactly but I'm enjoying this explorative time. _ This is a photo of me in my home studio shot by the talented @ilene_squires_photo. See a few more photos of the shoot on her Instagram today!

- Today is hump day and I'd like to give a special shout out for #womencrushwednesday to my insanely creative friend, @thesaltycanary! She blows my mind with her clever, crafty concoctions and oooey-gooey junk food hacks. We met about ten years ago working at an entertainment advertising firm and have reconnected in the last few years. I love that she found her calling as a creative after law school and decided to follow her heart. __ We've had the pleasure of working on some projects together and I'm always so impressed by her drive and vision. This girl has skills - an out-of-the-box thinker who can saw, bake, style, photograph and glue gun the heck out of something. Please check out her feed. You won't be disappointed.

- I don't have a daily practice of painting because I've failed big every time I tried. This time I analyzed why. It seems I feel a lot of pressure to fill a new sketchbook with the most perfect paintings or drawings and tend to overwork a painting and sit way longer than the time allotted. I decided to not work in a sketchbook and paint on smaller pieces of paper. I also think if the paper is smaller I won't feel like I need to work longer (in my head that makes sense - we will see). Here's my first quick painting. It was fun and freeing. I enjoyed how the first one was looking and carried it over to a second. I think they can be more detailed but it's ok. It's just for me to get started in this practice. I can always go back and rework, right? Do you feel pressure to make masterpieces in a new sketchbook?

- "It takes a long time to become young" - Pablo Picasso __ How true is this? Today is my birthday and at my age (I'm well over 40 guys) I honestly feel more in touch with myself, feel better than ever and understand the importance of living your life to the fullest. Feeling younger (not just looking it as I'm been told often) is a game changer. I don't think I've ever felt my age- whatever that means. ___ Taking care of yourself mentally, emotionally and physically contributes to your happiness and longevity. I know I'm talking like I'm this old, wise woman but I have seen the benefits of living a life on your terms and one that's healthy all around. I'm not perfect but growing older has made me more and more comfortable with my life and how it's unfolding. ___ I give myself permission to be vulnerable, to share my talents and interests and grow more every day. I'll be celebrating THAT today and loving, accepting and embracing myself for all the things I love (and don't always love) about me. On my birthday I wish the same for you today. Love and embrace who you are. Stand tall! 💕

- Made some post-conference, reflective drawing time this morning. What a fun week. I decided to relax poolside to create a commemorative watercolor sketch of the incredible candy-colored @thesaguarops hotel. ____ This drawing will remind me of the good times I had these past few days at #altsummit reconnecting with my peeps, sitting in inspirational talks, holding a fantastic roundtable discussion and meeting so many creative women. Still processing it all and looking forward to see what materializes from all this newfound inspiration and heartfelt connections.

- So happy to announce a series of illustrations I made for the @calottery. I had the pleasure of illustrating three California cities and their popular landmarks. Here you see San Fran/Oakland - An old stomping ground of mine that is dear to me. ___ I am so happy with how it turned out! It was a project that stretched my illustration muscles and helped me see my work in an elevated way. I also realized in doing this project that I have lived in California for 25 years - this year. Wow. I grew up on the east coast and came here for college and never left. I have lived in northern and southern Cali and the sunny weather and lifestyle just fit me like a glove. This project felt like a 25 year anniversary tribute to the place I call home. __ Learn more about the project and see the other illustrations and the newspaper and digital ads in my stories and on my blog today! Link in profile. ___ Many thanks to JB and #museadvertising.
