Nature 🌿🍃feelings around. 🍂
The King high tides this week have been an event which normally I wouldn’t pay that much attention to, if at all. But it’s all about perspective; if you just so happen to have water in your backyard the tides become a daily rhythm of life. So it was a little bit romantic when hubby asked me to join him for a little saunter down the backyard and onto our almost submerged jetty the other night. Felt like walking on water. It was a tiny moment in life but sometimes it’s these little moments that leaves you feeling awe inspired. 🌊
So excited about this Thursday! I’m teaming up with @mainstcville this Thursday to do a live painting of our sweet town’s #summerconcertseries . The piece will be up for auction, with 10% of the proceeds going to the restoration of our precious Frisco engine. Such a fun night to spend #summeronthesquare listening to good music 🎶 and did I mention it’s CAR 🚘 NIGHT?!?

Unrelated to this photo, it's National Ice Cream Day today! It's also a Sunday. One could say it's an Ice Cream Sunday. Or even an ice cream pun day.

@aka_monket ’s mixed media painting, “The Wanderer”, at @risdmuseum ’s current contemporary works exhibition is straight 🔥. There are so many beautiful layers and textures in this piece.
We are still on vacation and tonight I’ve been thinking about all the pieces I have waiting to be finished back in my home studio. This is my most recent finished piece, I’ll get her framed and up on the website once I’m home. Hope everyone had a great weekend! . . #abstractartist #abstractart #wearethemakers #markmaking #abstractart #creativityfound #carveouttimeforart #studioscenes #doitfortheprocess #artforyoureveryday #studiolife #dowhatyoulove #creativehappylife #creativeprocess #thedailygallery #risingtidesociety #showyourwork #todaysartreport #abstractonly #artfair #colorblock #colorlover #modernmaker #monacoartweek #pattern #ibiza #fincastyle
Forest Trail This piece was made for one of my dear friends who is giving it as a baby gift to her sister! We decided to make the colors bright and playful, and I looked through some of the impressionist books in my classroom for mark making methods from Cezanne and Van Gogh. I also was inspired by the metaphor of a path the Bible talks about. “He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, Bringing honor to His name.” Psalm 23:3
Inspiration comes from so many places for me. I could say it as a general statement that nature is my inspiration, but I know it’s so much more then that and I often struggle with how to put it into the right words. Each painting is sparked by a combination of things... a simple word like “freedom.” Or the way I saw the wind catch the field grass and It made me want to find a way to add that fluid motion. Or the simple inspiration that there is always more to learn and explore so I just try something uncomfortable and keep working through it. I honestly never saw this life coming in a million years and maybe one day it will look completely different. But for now I’m just trying to be present everyday. I’m trying to learn and grow so I can discover more about myself and this world I live in. Thank you all for being a part of this crazy journey. You guys are the best!! [ new art coming soon: “Spring Florals no.2” 30x30 acrylic on canvas ] dm if interested. #kendracastilloart

There is something wonderful about Sunday mornings! I’m planning on painting for a few hours this morning before I head out for some #sundayfunday ☀️ later today.
Being born and raised in the South, driving anywhere amongst the back roads or highways it was impossible not to see fields with rows of cotton. Cotton fields evoke such strong feelings for me because so many of my good memories involve this scenery as the backdrop. • We used to go visit my great grandmother in Missouri and I remember helping to pick the cotton. Afterwards we went back to her house and ate warm homemade biscuits smothered with chocolate gravy. • Cotton fields to me means home. #melissalewisart #lifeinthesouth
What a lovely day for a wedding! Congrats to Mia and Colin!
Pasando el fin de semana diseñando y pintando nuevos patrones para el nuevo proyecto, decidí tomar el fin de semana para dedicárselo a este proyecto que por la carga de trabajo no había podido avanzar así que por fin ya esta casi listo para mostrarlo 👏🏻🤩 #newproject . . . . . . . #newproduct #designobject #patterndesign #pattern #design #painting #handmade #art #arte #artistic #artsy #homeinthestudio #artforyoureveryday #photooftheday #creativeentrepeneur #emergingartists #artwatchers #artwork #originalartwork #fineart #artdaily #homedecor #decorative #sueartstudio #summervibes #colorcrush
SOLD!! - "Peacock" ... since I finished this acrylic painting in early 2015 it's had quite the journey. It's been the much admired showpiece at a couple of my market tables and appeared in @kickstartarts "Can You See Us Vancouver?" exhibition in November last year. . This month however it finally found its home with one of my co-workers. He asked if I was sad to part with it, however I'm finding that as I sell more paintings it's incredibly satisfying knowing that they'll be brightening up someone else's home just as they've brightened my own. . . . . #acryliconcanvas #passioncolorjoy #colorlove #artforsale #buyart #makeartnotwar #instaartexplorer #instahomedecor #creativelifehappylife #lightandshadow #vancouverartist #bcartist #disabledartist #artforyoureveryday #instahomedecor #houseandhome #stainedglass #artnouveau

morning little things ✨
When I look at art, I go through the senses - what I’m seeing, smelling, hearing. Because what I love most about it is that it’s subjective. So I’m curious, what are your senses telling you? ✨ “Solace” mixed media on 8x10 canvas.

This piece originally started out in pastel colours, and then I totally painted it over with these moodier hues. Sometimes that is just how it goes! . For me, painting is very much about how I feel in the moment and when I leave a painting for a few days that can drastically change. I am quite happy with the end result of this one, though. ☺️ .

“My artistic practice centres on the idea that visual cues, such as colour and texture, can evoke emotional and even visceral reactions in viewers.  In many ways, I believe that art is more effective than words in its ability to stimulate empathy in the viewer.  For me, painting serves as both an emotional release and an escape from reality.” . That is the first paragraph from my new artist statement. I hadn’t revised it since 2016 and my art has grown and developed a lot in the time, so an update was overdue. It might still get some more tweaks here and there, but it is finally in a state that I feel comfortable sharing it with you. If you are interested in reading my full statement, click the link in my profile. . I generally think of myself as a good writer, but writing about my own art in a concise, clear, and professional manner has proven quite difficult. I spent a lot of time reworking each sentence, changing the order of paragraphs, adding and cutting information, and so on. . That being said, there can always be changes and improvements. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback, so if you do get a chance to read it, please leave me a comment or send me a message! . . . . . . . . . . #artistsoninstagram #dsart #creativeprocess #originalpainting #artwatchers #fluidpainting #arttherapy #colorpsychology #abstractartist #abstractexpressionism #makersmovement #womanartist #intuitivepainting #artforyoureveryday #artanddesign #handmadeisbetter #choosemust #upliftandinspire #showyourwork #createmakeshare #communityovercompetition #goodvibetribe #artflowsessions #designisinthedetails #creativeflow #livetocreate #thatcolorproject #colorventures #artistlife #artstudio
Headed to Hayden Lake for the weekend and looking forward to it.
A coffee break and a peek at my daily painting. Number 14, which is on the right, will be released tomorrow. I painted the sides of this one dark gray which I really like next to the bright flowers.
“This piece is a portrait of a child in the African country of Togo. It was inspired after I had read a book about a man's journey to Togo in his time in the peace corps. It is a small quaint piece that doesn't seek too much attention, yet stirs up curiosity. The warms tones and dark shadows create an earthy portrayal of an innocent child.” AnneMarie Young (@ammnarie ), University of Texas at Austin

Use it all! On Bek Barkocy’s (@prawduct ) episode Finding Your Why we talk about using things which people normally want to get rid of like grief, pain and heart ache and turning it into something beautiful. These things aren’t meant to be pushed aside, they have beauty and are part of us. Sometimes Bek uses flowers as paintbrushes to illustrate this in her paintings. She finds things that are usually discarded and incorporates them into her work. I like to think that we can use art as a way to confront and deal with pain instead of just covering it up. Take a little time to make something this week. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just enjoy makin’ ✨🎨 📸: @prawduct
