- :: The poetry of the earth is never dead.:: . . John Keats . . Every evening, right as it cools down in the garden, there's one hummingbird that comes for the flaming red gladioli blossoms. She visits at the same time, I watched the clock, and tonight was her third night. If I don't pay her too much attention, she stays and hums and hovers in midair. Summer magic. . . #watercoloring #modernwatercolor #modernbotanicals #gouachepaint #johnkeats . . Those fine white lines are done with a #princetonbrushes round 1, and #drphmartins White. All my favorite supplies are listed in my profile ✨🌿

- :: All those years I fell for the great palace lie that grief should be gotten over as quickly as possible and as privately. But what I've discovered since is that the lifelong fear of grief keeps us in a barren, isolated place and that only grieving can heal grief; the passing of time will lessen the acuteness, but time alone, without the direct experience of grief, will not heal it.:: . . There is so much pain in the world. My heart aches for the loss, the pain, the victims, the inability to help those that are struggling with mental illness, cancer. These words by Anne Lamott say it so much better than I can. Let us grieve and hold one another closely during these times. May Love and Light cast out fear and darkness. And may we come together and hold one another dearer every day.

- :: tonight was one of those heart-fulfilling, soul-happy amazing evenings. I taught such a LOVELY group to #watercolorpaint at @sweetgrassfoodco . . . So many good questions, and "a-ha" moments. I love when I can create with others. It just fills my heart right up. I wish I had more words to express my joy, but where words fail me - I paint. So here is Florence, my sweet #micronpen lined gal, holding up her treasure of a #fiddleleaffig for all to see. Her heart is overflowing in green leaves, like mine is in paint :: . . #watercoloring #modernwatercolor #joyincreating #watercolorclass

- :: I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious.:: . . – Albert Einstein . . I am looking forward to learning from the other amazing artists at the #watercolorsummit this August. I am passionately curious about all things watercolor, and over the years of teaching I've learned something else: I love the art of watercolor because it brings us together, as creators, sharing and dreaming with our paintbrushes. What a joy🙌🏽 . . The last day to join the early bird special is May 30th. Make sure you say hi👏🏽when you reserve your spot - I love getting a chance to meet you and see your work. I cannot wait to paint and learn with you✨🎨:: . . #watercoloring #watercolorclass #neverstoplearning #botanicalwatercolor #alberteinstein

- :: would you like to... . . ...watercolor with me? Spots for the #watercolorsummit are live until 5/30, and this is the last early bird special period before tickets are full priced at $249. . . ✨Fun facts: the live filming/set up took 9.5 hours😱, so my lesson is going to be very detailed and involved. Also, did you see the clip of me filming, sharing some favorite resources? You get to see an angle that the professional camera didn't; I like to paint barefoot so my toes make a cameo appearance in the behind the scenes shots😂 I'll add it to my Stories again...!. . . . Here are some of the things I am teaching: . 👌🏽We are going to chat about my favorite materials (paper, paint, trays, brushes...) and where to find them. I break down what tools are necessary, and which are just nice to have. ✨I speak to my Art Print creation process, and the tools and resources I use to professionally share my art. 🖊I am going to show you my process on how I create my black line illustrations. ✉️ I'm going to provide you with a pre-drawn botanical piece for you to trace and paint along with me. 🌿I am going to speak to the Composition of a piece, and the Color Harmony I consider when creating. . 👏🏽I am going to cover different techniques that I use daily to create the pieces I share on Instagram. 🎨You will receive a full transcript of the audio, and have lifelong access to my session, and the 6 other Artist's sessions. 🌈We are going to watercolor AND gouache in my session....leaves, and berries and flowers...OH MY😍 . . There will be a live Q&A after my sessions as well - really looking forward to chatting with you from all over the world to talk about my favorite thing - creating together!!!! The link is in my profile to sign up for just a few more days...don't miss out on all the fuuuuunnnnnnn💃🙌🏽🎨🖊🎉🌿. . #watercoloring #watercolorclass #paintingclass #gouachepainting #botanicalwatercolor

- :: Hummingbirds and hydrangeas in the garden for Florence. . . Did you know, my #FlorenceAndHerFascinations character was how I first started sharing my artwork on Instagram? It was so scary when I first started to share my work...but you - my community - were so kind. And you encouraged me to share more!!! I would draw her in ink, and then watercolor a new Fascination - eucalyptus leaves, chickens, an egg in a 🍳 skillet. She became an #everygirl who people identified with. She will always have such a special place in my heart ❤️This particular Florence was a gift for a Momma, surrounded by her favorite Fascinations in the garden :: . . #hummingbirds #watercoloring #modernwatercolor #gardenart #hydrangeas
