It’s a sign! Is it just me or does anyone else see ladybugs as a good luck sign or when they’re thinking of a loved one. Occasionally (very occasionally), paintings will appear and literally pop off the paint brush and tell me, well, this is what’s going on the canvas today. This was that painting!

Hello, Lady Bug! She’s watching over my art studio right now, a reminder to me, that paintings do sometimes materialize out of thin air. (Good reminder for the 95% that don’t! ha!)

In other news, lots of new Postcards and Greeting Cards are in the shop. A summer series painting collaboration just landed at Watson Kennedy, all paintings by contributing artists are 6×8″and all are under $200. I went on a little trip to Colorado to visit a bestie and, on the home front, I laced up my running shoes for the first time in…awhile. Running for 30 minutes three times might not count as a new routine but it’s better than the olympic level sloth I was training for during pandemic.

What else? I’m working on a variety of Souvenir Series, pieces based on iconic geography, states and landmarks. Very fun! Also, still loving my weird passion project of birds, parakeets, parrots, peacocks and all feathered friends and winged creatures.

Happy June, friends! Hope there is travel, creativity and rest, maybe all at the same time!
