Another one of my all time favorites! It's called "Let your hair down" and everytime I look at it it reminds of exactly that. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Lots of new ideas and some really exciting paintings are coming, but first: I need a blank canvas. I think this is my biggest so far ๐Ÿ˜‰
When I look at this painting it brings up a sense of play. Of being silly and free. Not just tiptoeing, but jumping. And it always brings a smile to my face โ˜บ๏ธ

Weโ€™re born these perfect little beings knowing how wonderful we are and how to express ourselves, until something shifts. When and why do we start to doubt our own โ€œinner awesomenessโ€? I worked on a Summer Camp in the U.S. when I was younger and was shocked to see little girls as young as 7 shaving their legs and saying to each other that they were fat. I donโ€™t know why we keep doing this to ourselves, to each other and passing this nonsense along. Looking at these TBT paintings and thinking that sometimes we need a mirror held back at us, to see our own essence, to see ourselves through the eyes of love and to remind ourselves of just how wonderful we are.๐Ÿ’› .

Settling in to a new home and to a brand new studio. Looking back at these paintings enjoying seeing how things evolve with time and excited for all the beautiful new changes to come ๐Ÿ˜€
"I recently received a message of someone thanking me for painting someone just like her. She thanked me for painting her cesarean scar, her stretch marks, her belly, her mom body. She could see herself in that painting and see that sheโ€™s beautiful just the way she is. Thereโ€™s nothing to be changed, nothing to be ashamed of. Beauty comes in all sizes and shapes.โ€ ๐Ÿ’•

"Real beauty can only come from a place of love and acceptance and that is the main goal of what I do. I want to show women that theyโ€™re beautiful, unique, and special exactly how they are now. Not when they do, change, or achieve something. I want them to feel beautiful, whole, and complete the way they are now. My paintings are a reflection of the beauty we already have. Sometimes we just need a little reminder." Click the link in the profile to read my interview on @ravishly. I'm so happy and honored I can hardly contain myself ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thank you @ravishly and @jenni_bee ๐Ÿ’› .
