My process is messy and mostly disorganized at this point in my life. I usually don't sketch things out, but like to rework as I go.  These turtles are fun and different for me. I'm enjoying the prices very much.

Every day, sometimes multiple times a day, my little two-year-old will point to artwork around the house and say, "You paint, mama?" I love that she recognizes my talent and appreciates it.

I put this new one in her room this week and she keeps saying, "You paint fwowers, mama? I yike! My room!" It makes my heart happy.

Happy Lovers Holiday. I hope you have a valentine in your family, life, or heart.

I have the opportunity to do a lot of my parenting in the car, when my kids are giving me (mostly) their full attention. I have grown to long for these teaching moments, and uninterrupted time to talk with my kids. Today I taught them what a "valentine" was, and that a valentine can be a friend, lover, family member, crush, etc. I am so grateful that i have three little Valentine's every year for the rest of my life 笶、

I asked my eight-year-old if he had a valentine, and he answered, "yes, but it's kind of private." My mom-side was bursting with excitement and curiosity, but I kept my cool and didn't pry.

I am anxiously awaiting for spring. This week, the cold has been bothering me more than usual, and I am ready for sun and flowers. I absolutely adore this vase my parents brought back for me from a trip, but I can't remember where they got it.  Any guesses? I'd love to be able to remember where it came from. #vase #flowers #spring

Ever wonder what it's like to paint with kids around? Just listen to this video. I was planning on cutting the sound out, but it's a pretty accurate representation of how my life is! 沽 #momartist #nraevsky #painting #oilpaint #wip #workinprogress

This is me doing a living book report on Georgia O'Keeffe in 3rd grade. She's still one of my favorites. #artist
