it’s really happening!

I am incredibly excited to announce that my art will be on display at Vino & Vinyl for the month of March! This will be a first for me and on a personal level is such a big deal!

For the last two years, I have been picking up my paints and brushes again with a new intensity. I wanted to pursue my craft so that it would become a way of how I live my daily life. When I began to take deliberate actions toward my goal, I felt such a shift. The years of creative energy that had been percolating away on my back-burner now had a place to go. It was like watching a slow lava flow; not really fast, sometimes dark and ugly but there was definitely a lot of fire under there. I felt more real, more true to myself. It’s been such a good and healing experience for me.

I would love it if you could celebrate with me on this special night as I take a big step and put my latest artwork out there. Vino & Vinyl (Missouri City location) is a wine bar/lounge and record store that supports local art.

If you can’t make it to opening night, my work will be on display for the whole month of March.
Regular business hours for Vino & Vinyl:
Tuesday through Thursdays 4-11 pm
Friday and Saturdays 4pm – midnight
Closed Sundays and Mondays

breathe again

I have such gratitude for however my feet and my mind have managed to come to this podcast. Post-election, I felt so incredibly off-balance. Feeling all the feelings while trying to retain some sanity and do what I needed to do as a wife and mom. Trying not to scare my husband and kids while managing a volcano of emotions.

I listened to this Podcast by Rob Bell with Pete Rollins, called Standing Firm, and for the first time in almost a week, felt the weight lift from my chest a little and my lungs expand with breath. I hope it is helpful for you as well.

Marriage

I’m totally Richard Dreyfuss in this scene. Walking into my studio or when I’m talking about one of my paintings or art that excites me, I think this might be a little bit of what Brad experiences being married to an abstract artist.
