Here’s my #topnine most-liked posts for 2018! Apparently I received 15.5k likes in total! So, thanks for the love and encouragement. It helps me shake the self-doubt on the tougher days. 🖤
I never would have guessed I’d be standing in front of Multnomah Falls with @brianne_jones on a Tuesday afternoon in the middle of December. It’s hard to believe we haven’t seen each other in 7 years! I think it’s so cool that so much time can go by and yet in person, it’s like it was just yesterday! Shoutout to the guy who cut the waterfall out of our picture 😜

We don’t usually let the Accounts Team in the kitchen—or feed them Prosecco in the afternoon—but maybe we should do it more often? 🥂 Recipes by our Culinary Team, execution by Accounts Director Kyle Donovan + Account Associate JJ Franco. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #heartcreative #flashesofdelight #artdirection #creativedirection #branddevelopment #creativeagency #foodnation #videography #visualinspiration #eyeondesign #tastingtable #eattheworld #lifeandthyme #heresmyfood #foodblogfeed #rslove #holidayrecipes #cookingvideo #pnwcreatives #bandoffun
A quick portrait of Apollo for my in-laws. He was almost 40 when he suddenly passed away this year. My father in-law got him as a chick. Other than immediate family Apollo was the longest relationship he had with anyone. Very excited to give this to them. #yellownapedamazon #parrot #bird #oilpainting #portrait #sketch #drawing #pnwcreatives #pdxart
This lil’ thang is already 4 months old... . “I’m gonna watch you shine, gonna watch you grow, gonna paint a sign so you always know, as long as one and one is two, there could never be a father love his daughter more than I love you”-Paul Simon . . #bigjlittlek #thebluehousewiththereddoor #leilaswan
It's been a long full day. Grateful to have new tools to experiment with art ideas when I can't be in the studio... #ekshorthand
Aw shucks! Punny little signs are my favourite 🤗
The very first things I moved into my new home and attached art studio: this diptych, “We Are So Lightly Here” . . For a Tuesday that has thus far been creatively challenging and rewarding in the best ways, this was surely the highlight. Well, this and the dance party that went down 👯‍♀️ . . #studio #artstudio #art #portland #pnwcreatives #portlandcreatives #abstractart #painting #leonardcohen #wearesolightlyhere

Styling this home has been fun. And each space is finally starting to take shape. So many tweaks, so much organizing and reorganizing to get it feeling just right 🌸 #stylingneverends

Waiting for this work day to end like... • I’m looking forward to going home to the hubs, cleaning (yes, you read that right), and making our place all ready for Christmas ❤️🎄 • • Tell me, what’s your favorite Christmas tradition? 👇🏻 • • Gorgeous photos by Heather Biggs ❤️ #MyHusbandSeesYourComments 😉
Guys, a couple of things about me: 1) I'm not very disciplined 2) As soon as I make a commitment I get overwhelmed, even if the commitment is to myself and regarding something I love. Recently I've been putting a lot of pressure on myself to be creative and it's making me... not creative. So I'm going to try this instead: I'm going to sit down, pick up my pens, and draw for at least 15 minutes a day for the next ten days. No specific requirements, no grandiose goals = no overwhelm, right? Now that I've said this out loud, I'm accountable to ya'll. I'll share my efforts every day for the next ten days. And you can join me if you want - you can make your 15 minutes about yoga, walking outside, savoring your coffee, or whatever the f you want. Here goes! #doitfortheprocess #painteveryday #practicepracticepractice #practiceyourcraft #selfgoals #nopressure #creativitystruggles #illustrationartist #pnwcreatives #artinprogress #studiovibes #ladypainter #womenwhodraw
Branding for a client who requested cozy grandpa vibes (yes, that’s a thing) for their branding 👴🏻 Love the way the main logo & submark came out.

💕 15 years ago these kids who barely knew each other got married 💕 They had no clue what they were doing and no idea what the future would hold 💕 Career changes, moving homes, flooding, daughter, travel, missed opportunities, seized opportunities, super high highs, really low lows 💕 There is no one, NO ONE, I’d rather have by my side through it all than you @apatani 💕 You’ve seen me at my very best. You’ve seen at me at my very worst. And you’ve loved me through it all 💕 Happy Anniversary - 🥂 here’s to 50 more years! . . . . #thisisus #15thanniversary #tarrangfamily #abmlifeiscolorful #abmlifeisbeautiful #dscolor #eastmeetswest #indianwedding #mybigfatindianwedding #contemporaryartist #indianartist #weddingcelebrations #artistlife #behindthescenes #artflow #youaremyhappyplace #happyartist #happyartistmovement #sodomino #bohodecor #thatsdarling #pursuepretty #seattleartist #pnwcreatives #artsy #mycreativebiz #savvybusinessowner
While I'm used to having folks over to make art alongside me in my studio, having folks come for studio visits with an eye to buying pieces feels altogether different -- most notably dressing the walls with finished pieces, instead of my regular WIPs and inspiring art by friends/family. As far as cleaning my studio -- believe it or not, it took a full day of purging and organizing to get to this point. But now, looking at these pics, this just looks like a messy artist studio -- and as if I was so busy working, I couldn't be bothered to clean... 😅
This little family was so fun to work with! 😄💛

One of my favorite X-Men team ups and battle move in comic books: the "Fastball Special" Colossus tosses Wolverine to attack the enemy at 200 mph! ⚾️😤💪🤣😎 • #kdoubleu_art #AirMaXMen #Wolverine #Colossus
more #shorthand love for this rainy Seattle Tuesday morning... #ekshorthand
This was taken just two days after our wedding. Believe it or not, everything had gone a bit wrong at the start of our honeymoon, but looking at this photo, you wouldn’t have known. . The funny thing is that after what felt like everything not living up to what you may expect for a honeymoon; everything went right from this moment on. A lot in part is because we shifted our mindsets and made the most of the intimate time we had with each other. . We celebrated our marriage amidst the ‘disappointments’ we were faced with in the beginning. We had some of the most memorable moments together, including dragging a huge piece of driftwood all the way to the car 😂 . This time in our marriage really set the standard for how we deal with difficult times. Like this last week for instance..with the loss of one of our barn kitties, catching a cold, a trip to the ER for hubby, and having a longer to-do list than I had the stamina for.. . As much as what was going wrong — the week didn’t feel so negative at the time. A lot in part is shifting my mindset, taking one day at a time, and my husband. Just like before, we appreciated our time we had amidst the chaos. We leaned on each other when it was needed, and still managed to laugh amidst it all. Don’t get me wrong, this last week wasn’t easy, but it also wasn’t so full of negativity because of the events that transpired. . So, maybe this week is full of chaos since it is the week preceding Christmas and you have an overwhelming to-do list OR maybe this is a difficult season for you. Either way, it doesn’t have to have a negative connotation with it. You can choose to focus on the good, and not be held up in the stress or what still needs to be done. I hope you’ll be able to choose to cherish this time. It really works wonders when you do. ❄️🙏🏼 .

I didn’t know what to expect at the outset of 2018- but for better and for learning purposes (and of course the worst possible scenarios) I’ve hustled and made sh** happen for myself - with the love and support of my closest people. Now I’m tired. Stay tuned for photos of commissions I’ve done and haven’t ruined the surprise of by posting. . . . #hustle #artist #art #2018 #illustrator #artistoninstagram #animalart #animalartists #nature #naturelovers #natureartist #natureart #wildlife #freelance #tired #makeithappen #seattle #seattleartist #pnw #pnwcreatives

#wip || I’m capitalizing on all the feelings that need expressed, yet no words can seem to help me comprehend. Perhaps that’s the best end to a year? Contemplation and playfulness as opposed to regret and neglect. . . . Growth mindsets are difficult to maintain, but rewarding to inhabit. . . . #portland #portlandcreatives #pnw #pnwcreatives #saturation #acrylicpainting #abstract #abstractpainting #abstraktekunst #kunst #arte #kunstler #artistsofinstagram #deepinthefeelings #endofyear
I love my bony chest more than anything else on my body. It is my favorite feature by far. Some people think that I'm too gaunt or that this level of being thin is disgusting. I think they're all crazy, and beauty is subjective. What is your favorite feature on your own body? 📸@2j_productions #model #modeling #seattlemodel #bodypositivity #calvinklein #seattle #pnwmodel #curves #boudoir #victoriassecret #vs #longlegs #pose #photography #photoshoot #legsfordays #imgmodels #work #bravoportraits #moodyport #followme #instagood #igers #reflection #beauty #pnwcreatives #art #intense #emotion #pnwonderland

Adversity does not build character....it reveals it.
🌿🌿🌿 When Bethlehem takes up residence on your dining room table...🌲 . The creche from my childhood Christmases was a folk art nativity exactly like this one, only the figurines were larger. The set was purchased in Mexico by my grandmother, decades ago.🌲 . Every year for as long as I can remember, Bethlehem blossomed on top of our Steinway piano, and I took great delight in delicately reenacting the wondrous story with the handpainted figures.🌲 . A few Christmases back, my parents surprised me with a beautiful gift: this smaller creche, which my grandmother had also brought back from Mexico, every feature familiar like a friend except in miniature. It is now at home in my home.🌲 . Now, Bethlehem blossoms on the dining room table--as we have no piano--and the holy infant lays on a bed of Douglas fir, and the scene unfolds anew among our own silent nights, our holy days, our graces reborn every morning on the road to Christmas day.🌲 . What is your favorite Christmas memory or object?🌲 . . . #wildrootwinter #advent #christmas #nativity #creche #home #cozy #pnwcreatives #ig_home #folkart #traditional #thatpnwlife #visualsoflife #flashesofdelight #embracingtheseasons #hope #celticchristianity #pnw
