“Rise Up”
5×7 on gallery wrapped canvas.
This little hummingbird is rising up into the light, finding her true north.
Inspired by these song lyrics:
“Gonna rise up
Burning black holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold
Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
And suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold
Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up”- Eddie Vedder

Fun and Loose

New goal. 15 min of childlike art play per day. No rules but to have fun and be loose, to scribble and scratch and turn off any inner critic. ❤


Empty Nest

“Change will force you to step off the path, to venture from the nest, to close your eyes and dive right in, knowing that the greatest opportunities in life are found in the sink or swim, do or die moments.”
― Stella Payton

Be Open


Today on the way to dance we noticed how gorgeous the light was on the fields. We pulled over and snapped some quick photos. Twenty minutes later the sun was sinking behind the mountains. ‪#‎goldenhour‬

found poem

A quickie lunchtime found poem. And as always, they are so magically representative of what’s going on in my noggin. Love this easy way to add some extra creativity into the day.

I crashed into my own story, heart pounding, tired, and fragile.
Afraid of feelings like mine.
But then, in another instant I walked forward with pure intuition.
Of course!
