Hey Mamas

Big love to the woman who helped make me the woman I am to day - the coolest, most caring and patient lady I know. Shout out to the mamas who do that for their own - Happy Mother's Day!

'Open Hearts'

It was a pleasure to make this family portrait, of sorts, for the lovely Shannon, as a birthday gift from her husband Liam. Such a treat to have your art be given as a gift to loved ones.

The bird characters are seen as peaceful creatures. Loving and protective. The sash with bells is to keep evil spirits at bay, and the home and those you love harmonious.

Summer Love

Since the date is arriving soon, and the invites have been shipped, it is now time to share the front image of some wedding invites that I did for some friends who are tying the knot this summer! It's a nice feeling to contribute to the union of two lovely people.

'Hold Your Own'

Finished this big guy up yesterday. This is the first of a series of 22x28 pieces, which is exciting as it's the biggest size I've worked on in years. I'm excited and happy with how this piece turned out, and seeing the content translated on a larger scale.

'A New Year, Again'

'A New Year, Again' / 7.5x10, Acrylagouache on watercolor paper.

At the beginning of a new year, people traditionally - myself included in the past - make new plans and goals for themselves. Feeling pressured to improve and change from where they are currently at. Improvement and growth should be something that just happens. It's great to strive for more and set goals for yourself, pushing yourself to new places. I try to do this as much as I can. This year, I'm not going to force myself to make unforeseen goals, or try to plan the year out before it's barely even started. With that in mind, I welcome the new year with thanks and appreciation for the past years, and everything that I have gained and experienced up until this point. 2014 brought big changes, changes that were needed, and I feel lucky for where I'm at and where I'm going. It brought new friends, great support, and awesome opportunities. I'm excited for this new year, and can't wait to see where it will take me. Happy Year of the Sheep!
