My redhead returns. She always comes to me when I feel a little lost or am struggling with inspiration. She is a springboard for me. A way to keep creating, keep moving forward. It’s funny how looking back can help us move forward sometimes. It’s not good to look back for too long, never to dwell but sometimes it is what we need in order to repel ourselves forward.

This is my first painting of 2019. The cold doesn’t seem to bother her but let me tell you, it is cold in my studio. I am trying to be productive but it is slow going. I have set up my wall for my upcoming online Auction in March and I am working on my workshop video for PYHAS2019.  There is no time to doddle! (Nothing like setting goals to put the fire under your butt, hey,  maybe THAT will warm up my studio LOL.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a nice winter holiday and a lovely New Year celebration. Ours was very low key, which was fine with me. The best gift I got was that everyone stayed well for the entire break. BEST. PRESENT. EVER.

I look forward to our upcoming year together. It’s going to be filled with lots of new challenges, facing fear and doing it anyway and my biggest struggle,  remembering to stay in the moment.

Wishing you love and health to you and all of your loved ones.

Christmas Cactus Blue Willow

8″x10″ mixed media painting on canvas board. This painting is flat and will need to be matted and framed by you.

This painting is SOLD

I’ve had my Christmas cactus for almost 15 years. I remember bundling Imogen up in a snow suit at 5 or 6 months and  pusing her stroller over  to the new shop that had just opened up at the end of the street. Hilary, my mother in law was in town and we went to check it out Zocalo ,  an amazing new addition to our neighbourhood; a gift/nursery/coffee shop. Hilary bought me  a small Christmas cactus in a little purple pot. I kept it in our upstairs bathroom. When we moved (a few blocks north), the pot broke so I found a new pot. Not a Blue Willow pot, but a girl can dream. It is  much larger now and lives on top of our piano where Imogen often sits  and plays. Like old friends. It looks down and a blooms. I think it jut may  like hearing her play as much as I do.
