Not all the paintings I do are made with sponges, but all of them are made with acrylics and #lotsoflove
Definitely the good old Italian days with oil colours are gone, but I’d love to give it a try again soon!
Don’t talk to me unless you also went to a high school with a choir that thought they invented “creating a rainstorm with their snapping and stomping” before a performance of Toto’s hit song, “Africa.” (*hits POST and says a prayer to the niche comedy gods*)
LE JARDIN // My phone managed to restore some random old photos today and this colour combination at @Lejardinmarrakech
got me going all kinds of crazy. So warm. Desperate to go back next year and squeeze in a trip to Tangier too. All kinds of perfection.
My art is always inspired by the seasons around me. I came across this beautifully frosted branch the other day on my walk. It made me think about the coming winter, the snow, the changes happening in the world around me.
See how the season of fall inspired my latest Grey Matter series of paintings and pieces live on my site. Link in bio!
Style Tip Alert: Colour matters. When I look around, especially now, all I see is a sea of black, grey, beige and white. While I do love my neutrals, when the weather gets dreary, adding some colour to an outfit puts a little pep in my step. People tend to fall into one of four colour categories (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) which is based on what characteristics are dominant in your colouring and skin tone. These can be further broken down into muted, bright, light, dark, warm and cool for a more accurate reading. Not only does colour have an impact on how you feel about yourself, but it also influences how others view and react to you. Some colours like blue, evoke a sense of security, trust, and loyalty. Some colours like red, evoke the emotion of love, passion, strength and desire. Brand experts have long been aware of the power of colour and use it strategically. You can do the same to brighten your mood, as a business tool, or just to give yourself a little more confidence. Don't be afraid to stand out lovely.

The new necklaces are online! Bolder than ever, I love them! 🤗❤#colorblock #goboldgoconfident
➼Not sure how to style such a powerful necklace? .
Here are my tips: .
Wearing a statement necklace will give an instant power to any outfit. Go all in for a bold, confident look!
Tip one: To style a statement piece, you need to keep the rest of the outfit simple and sleek.
Since the new necklaces are already so powerful with their lush colors, I'll advise to pair them with a black outfit that will make them pop and not feel over the top. Paired them with a black jumpsuit or a simple black pullover for a modern and luxurious look.
Tip two: Keep this style looking very effortless & chilled with a relax trousers of the same colors to make sure the result is luxe instead of too busy.
★Go bold, go confidently!★
Get ready for the compliments!
A bond that gets strong with age and grows with happiness.
Happy Thursday, friends. As I am working my way through my stacks of unfinished paintings, I’m rekindling my love for some of these washes. Sometimes I’m not sure why I stop working on a painting... they don’t look bad or anything. Why do you put down a painting?
- // wish i took these photos without the balloons, cause i feel like me posting two birthday pics with balloons would be annoying 😂 anyways, thank you all SO MUCH for all the love 😘❤
Everyday Mood: Mermaids sleep till Noon ✨🧜🏼♀️✨
One of my all time favorite paintings, “Don’t Look Back, You’re Not Going That Way” (2018) SOLD yesterday but I’m sure this palette will make a comeback in some of my future art! 💕
Вы когда-нибудь снимали на f/32? Я - да, и очень долго, при максимальной мощности моноблоков. Жесткий, видимо, был период.... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Сейчас я в поиске мягкости, женственности, чувственности. Поэтому диафрагма максимально открыта, ручной фокус и легкий расфокус (фокусироваться я умею😊). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
На мой взгляд, фотографировать нужно, когда есть что сказать. Когда на душе пусто, то лучше помолчать... __________________________________

So honored to have my acrylic trees and felt ornament garland in the latest issue of HGTV magazine! Love this colorful bar cart setup they styled! @hgtvmagpromo
Let’s put TWENTY BUCKS down on the table & have a quick chat.. What if you could take that $20 right now and completely change your life?
What if you knew that in a few months, you could afford to put gas in your truck without checking your balance, you could go out to dinner, you and your spouse wouldn't fight over that ONE bill?.. or maybe you'd be able to travel more, give back, and have more time to spend with your family!?!?! Would you do it then... would you see $20 as an amazing opportunity to invest in YOURSELF? 🙌🏼 The truth is...you see $99 as a "catch". You see it as a "risk"... you have FEAR. BUT $20??? NO MORE EXCUSES!! TWENTY DOLLARS, YALL! The biggest risk of all is looking back and having to ask yourself "WHAT IF I TRIED?!...” $20.. and you get ALL this! 👉🏻

When it's all sunny in November..
Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and it seemed like the perfect time to debut these faux leather drink markers on the @pinholepress
blog! They’re perfect for preventing a very sad reality at crowded events- abandoned half-filled wine glasses, unsure of who their owners are. Don’t let this happen to you! Especially when the solution is so simple- and adorable. Link in my bio for the full post! #sponsored
