Fire in the Mountains

One of the most striking features of the Bella Coola Valley, where I live, are the mountains. They soar up to as much as 9,000 feet surrounding us in a narrow valley only about  1.5 km wide at the most. (Correct me if I’m wrong, locals!!) On the valley floor it seems next to impossibleContinue reading “Fire in the Mountains”

Cycles and Creativity

Finally, the New Moon is here! It feels like the difficult time I had in May is over. A new cycle has begun. I’ve never really considered myself a New Agey person, although I’ve always been extra intuitive, have dreams that come true years later and I’m super sensitive to subtle energy shifts in peopleContinue reading “Cycles and Creativity”

She’s been a favorite of mine to paint, and this is my second little painting of her. I’m playing with thick paintContinue reading “Marilyn Monroe”

A Little Blue

I feel like I haven’t painted in weeks! I was starting to feel guilty, depressed and even questioning why I bothered!! Crippled with indecision about style, medium, and subject matter…I finally know from experience that the solution is to pick something, just anything, and start painting. First the ground, then the sketch, and suddenly I’mContinue reading “A Little Blue”

Vulpes Corvum~ Raven Skull

I’ve recently joined a daily painting challenge with Facebook Friends, and fantastic artists, Corey Matthews and Jan Little. 365 days of painting! I haven’t been entirely successful in painting every day, but I did decide that when I was able to fit in a little one, that I would like at least half of themContinue reading “Vulpes Corvum~ Raven Skull”
