Coffee for two

The other day I accidentally broke my glass coffee pot.:(

I never used to drink coffee. I started about a year ago. Now I look forward to my morning cup of coffee. The smell that fills the air as it's brewing, the warm mug in my hands and the smooth mellow flavor. (I sound like a coffee commercial.) I never understood what all the fuss was about before. .
This morning hubby picked up a replacement pot! We sat out back and relaxed with our mugs of coffee. Ah sunshine and coffee with the one you love! What could be better!

Which inspired me to do this painting.


I think I went a little overboard having a cup and a half of coffee. I was feeling pretty jittery as I was finishing up the painting. I think from now on I'm a one cup gal!

After I posted this and looked at the painting again, I realized that there are chalkboards in my painting!!

Amazing how the subconscious works!

CHalk it up!!
And have a great day!

Heart Painting

Love conquers all!

Through turbulent times
When life seems to be throwing punches at you
Follow your heart
Love Conquers all!

I am by no means a poet. And this is not really written to be one. I am just writing and painting from my heart.

When I was painting this I did not see the message. It was not until I stepped back and looked at it that I realized what I was saying.

Times are tough right now and we are stepping into the unknown. When you don't know which way to go FOLLOW YOUR HEART and that is exactly what we are trying to do right now.

I hope you will listen to your heart today too! And do what you were meant to do!

Have a great day!

11"x14 acrylic on stretched canvas

This is my latest painting of this new series that started.

There are painting studios popping up all over the place, where you sign up for one class and in three hours you complete a painting by following the instructor step by step. Everyone leaves with the same painting. You are encouraged to bring your own bottle of wine and snacks and make an evening of it. It is referred to as art entertainment! I like this idea, sort of. But I have a slightly different idea. I would love to open a studio like this but use my own method of bringing out your inner artist. In my studio everyone would leave with a different painting, one that comes from the artist that lives within each of us.
