Spring Growth

8″ square panel

“I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.” -Steve Southerland

18″x12″ charcoal on chanson paper

Drawing from life. I started with a gesture, and then found smaller shapes, then shadow shapes…and along cane a face from all those shapes!

Bloom If You Can

“Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may be given a cactus, but you don’t have to sit on it.”

-Joyce Meyer

Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.

Flowers for the Soul

5″x7″ pastels on sanded paper

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.

Luther Burbank

I don’t know about more helpful, but I know fresh flowers in my home make me happier. I love the way this little study turned out.
