Lately, I've been thinking about living more simply and fully.
I'm writing to you from the beaches of southern California and remembering just how much the sunshine and walking barefoot fill up my heart.
Four years ago I wrote a novel about a girl who could jump into her drawings. But I got scared about sharing it with the world. Now I've been rereading and editing that novel pool-side, with kids splashing and playing, and it feels like the perfect spot to finish my book.
And I can’t wait for you to read it.
All of this writing has me back working on my creative business ebook too, which is full of what has and hasn't worked for me in my business and life as an artist. I know it will be very helpful for anyone starting on their own creative journey.
If you have a question about my creative process, business or art, please ask here and I'll do my best to answer in my ebook or on my blog.
In the meantime, I'm so excited to start painting with everyone in HOW TO PAINT AN OWL 2 (class starts Monday!)!
Here are a few snapshots from my most recent every days...
And, as an extra special THANK YOU for all of your kindness and support, I'm hosting a New GIVEAWAY to win a spot in HOW TO PAINT AN OWL 2 over on the lovely Christy Tomlinson's blog.
*update: the giveaway has ended. thank you to everyone who entered.*
I hope you're enjoying things in your part of the world.
Have a wonderful weekend!
