the super wonderful top secret project revealed!

 TITLE: Big Dream Believer. The Original Painting and Prints available in my etsy shop.

Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I'd tried my very best and submitted a box of my original paintings to one of my all time favorite publications? And then remember that top secret project I said I was SO CRAZY EXCITED to tell you about? Well, things are in motion and oh my! I couldn't be happier about it all!

In case you haven't guessed by now, I will be featured in Somerset Studio! Hooray! This has been one of my BIGGEST goals this far. I've been looking through all of the Stampington publications with ga-ga eyes, loving everything inside and just imagining how awesome it would be to have my artwork featured too. And now my dream is finally coming true!

I am busy writing a technique article on some of my owl paintings! The article will run in the January/February issue of Somerset, so stay tuned! I'll be revealing just what goes into making some of my most popular owl pieces, and talking a little bit about my life as an artist.

In case you can't wait to hear more, the lovely Malia is kind enough to be featuring a bit about me on her blog YESTERDAY ON TUESDAY! I am so honored she asked to interview me and had so much fun answering her questions! You can read all about it right here!

And to celebrate all of this, I've been concocting lots of green smoothies! Now, this may not seem like a celebration drink to you, but I cannot say how much these little smoothies make me feel so full of health and well being!
 We've been getting so many beautiful greens in our CSA (community supported agriculture) and I hated for them to go bad, so I started making these green smoothies. Yes, they may look really weird (although I love that beautiful green), but these smoothies are the perfect thing for the end of summer.

I feel so low on energy whenever I'm not eating enough greens, so I have to disguise them in these green smoothies. They really do taste good! I am not a veggie person at all, but with the banana added to this smoothie, you'd hardly know it's a HUGE dose of greens.

Serves 1 

1 frozen banana (I freeze them whole, without the peel)
1/2 cup apple juice (or any fruit juice you like or sometimes I just use almond milk or water)
1/4 cup yogurt (I love to use Greek yogurt or plain kefir)
a heaping handful of spinach and/or lettuce (sometimes I'll add kale, carrots or tomatoes too)
optional 1 tsp matcha green tea powder or crushed mint leaves
3-4 ice cubes, if needed

Add all to a blender, serve and enjoy!

Too weird for you? Check out my peanut butter banana and strawberry oatmeal smoothies instead!
