"comfort zone" original floral oil painting

Stepping out of my comfort zone. I always learn so much when I step out of my comfort zone, so why is it always to darn hard to do when it's usually a good thing? Often in the middle of a painting there a not-so-pretty stage (to be honest, it's often an ugly stage) where I think I should just quit, wipe it all off, start over, or never, ever paint again...and then, it turns a corner and it all comes together. It's so important to trust the process. Have faith that it will all be okay, and persevere...that's when the magic happens...right?

everyday hero

An everyday hero. Bees have been much in the news of late, and for the saddest of reasons: due to habitat loss, global warming, pesticides, and monocrop agriculture, their numbers are in sharp decline across the United States. The loss of bees and other threatened pollinators could damage not only the world’s economy, but also endanger its very ecosystem, you can read more about them here. So is this actually a honey bee or a bumble bee?

thistle

I painted this beautiful thistle while filming myself live on Instagram stories. I really like the platform of IG stories but I'm very camera shy. I'm going to keep trying though ,and maybe I will get comfortable with it. It sure does look like fun! Go check out the video in my story on Instagram and let me know what you think!

I painted this last week, my almost daily posts are usually what I paint that same day, but with an art opening and things just being super crazy, I am now officially not keeping up with ANYTHING! But it's all good because I'm so busy doing what I love...
