Finding Routine
This year I am determined to find a routine that works for me. A flexible routine because I always need space for changes and spontaneity.  Love is Kind Acrylics on 11 x 14 inch canvas Part of that has been trying to figure how to blog, when to blog and mos...
Now I spend most of my day - every day - painting. And I'm very active on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get my art out there and seen (and to connect with all my friends). Plus, I have an Etsy shop, an Artfinder Gallery Store and a Society6 shop to maintain and keep fresh, which takes a ...

Gorilla (New Art)
My last painting that's finished (I have two in progress) turned into this beautiful and intense gorilla. Some of you may have already seen him on Facebook, but I thought I'd show you some progress photos here. He started out with a layer of light molding p...
My last painting that's finished (I have two in progress) turned into this beautiful and intense gorilla. Some of you may have already seen him on Facebook, but I thought I'd show you some progress photos here. He started out with a layer of light molding paste on canvas.

Arguments with my Inner Voice
Does your intuition or inner muse talk to you? I recently discovered that mine does. In form of thoughts that won't let me go. It's a very persistent inner voice. And sometimes downright annoying.... Here's what happened with this painting. I had it to this...
Does your intuition or inner muse talk to you? I recently discovered that mine does. In form of thoughts that won't let me go. It's a very persistent inner voice. And sometimes downright annoying.... Here's what happened with this painting. I had it to this point and decided it was finished.

Painting in Layers
Layers! I love painting in layers. There is something so meaningful and a mysterious about them. My favorite Monkey acrylics on 9 x 12 inch canvas Much like us as humans, isn't it? We see who we are right now, but really if we were to peel back the complex ...
Much like us as humans, isn't it? We see who we are right now, but really if we were to peel back the complex layers of our lives, we could see everything that helped us be the person we are today. I'm sure I've written about this before, but I keep being reminded of it at this time in my life.

Introduction
I had never suspected that I had any creative talent until March of 2009, when I suddenly and without warning picked up a paint brush. I was raised in Germany but have lived in the US with my husband and various pets for the almost 30 years. This blog is about my life and what inspires me, be that art, food, travel, books, nature or various other things. So, welcome! Grab a cup of coffee and have a look around!
