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.

Taking Time For Flowers and Friends

“Nobody sees a flower really, it is so small. We haven’t time, and to see takes time-like to have a friend takes time.” -Georgia O’Keeffe

The Color of Dawn

10″x8″ pastel on sanded paper

“Pink is a beautiful color, because it is one of the colors that the sun makes at twilight and in the dawns.” –C. JoyBell C.

I have always loved when my art reminds someone of a story. Thanks to those who have opened their hearts and shared their breast cancer stories. I am honored to hear stories about mothers, sisters, friends, and God Children, favorite teachers, choir members, neighbors, Aunts, and Grandmothers.

Pink Bicycle

Today is International Girls Day! I love to think about the fact that all the strong women I know were once girls, and all the girls I know can grow up to be strong women.

If you love this style of art, consider taking my Mixed Media Abstracted Figure Workshop. November 14th and 15th, Sunnyvale, TX. I promise you don’t have to be able to draw, come and play, learn something new, and leave with two finished 16″x20″ gallery wrapped canvases.
