I am in love

I have been so busy painting and falling head over heels in love with the fall colors I haven’t been good at keeping up my blog. I’m not going to apologize because I’ve been busy living, but I definitely have a lot going on and will make a real effort to update more often. I started painting my tree landscapes and they have been hugely popular. I am currently hanging at Tavern in the Village and Burns & McDonnell in Overland Park, KS.

The fall colors are have provided nothing but inspiration. It’s funny because I look at all of the turning trees that are brilliant colors of red and yellow. My favorite is when a tree blends from one color to the next. I feel like a child seeing them for the first time and I’m completely in awe. Then I wonder if I don’t have this thought every year. The beautiful part is I know that my son sees it, too. On a drive through the country the other day I stopped and asked him if he saw the yellow in the grass. His response was, “yes, and the reds and the purples”. I warmed my heart to know that my son really saw it. He has artist eyes.

I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
