Daddy daughter date!!! They've been doing this ever since Tara was 4 or 5 and it melts my heart to no end. Sometimes they plan events out together and other times, it's a complete surprise. I tend to stay out of it completely:) #mygirl #tarasophia #being9rocks #lovethese2 #family
A juicy background spread in my #artjournal ...a tube of my #holbein yellow split open so I'm trying to use up as much as possible:) #artjournal #artjournalmagic #artjournalwisdom #mixedmediasupplies #mixedmediaart #mixedmediaart #colorlove #colorjoy #colorstory

Drawing inspiration from this color combo...aren't they gorgeous together? Swoon♡ #colorinspiration #colorlove #colorjoy #colorstory #inspiration #soulmedicine
My #artjournal page began with some quick lines and splashes. I've been doing some basic #contourdrawings to get my hand + heart flowing and inspired. Whenever I feel my art getting really stiff, I need to step away and loosen things up! Art journaling is the *best* cure♡
*Swipe to see when I added some oil pastels over top*

Starting the day off with a gloriously simple smoothie
1 cup cashew milk
Handful of frozen berries
Fresh spinach
Dash of #matcha powder
Hemp protein powder
Done, done and done!! It's been a little over a week since I've gone vegan and a few things I'm noticing
I *feel* lighter!! More energy and less bloat is always a great thing, no???
I feel very satiated when I eat a meal or snack. I noticed this same thing when I was in Oaxaca..I feel full with less food.

I will *never* tire of these gorgeous blooms everywhere we go. Lush lilacs, pinks of every shade, purple, white...mystical whispers from another world. Drinking it all in ♡

"The present is big enough to hold the past. I must let the present enlarge enough to become rich and deep. I must live in it, not just occupy its time." #juliacameron #thesoundofpaper 
I've been pondering this statement and I'm amazed at how seamlessly this fits into Buddhist thought. Being mindful and present to this moment is the key to living life fully. Not trying to escape or deny any of our experiences + emotions but simply allowing it all to *BE*. The envy, the angers, the pettiness are all valid and just as beautiful in their raw and messy forms as love, joy, beauty. The practice is to gather them up, be present, distill them, experience them. And then...let's melt them down and fashion them into our art, writing, poetry, relationships, baking, gardening etc. Let's use them as fuel+ compost to create. For that is the merging of our lives and our art. #alchemy

Hanging out with Mr Maxi on our back porch having a lazy Sunday evening. We've been having sweltering temps just like much of the country but *super* muggy. I'm not used to this humidity because CO was ultra dry; on one hand it's great for my skin but it feels like I have a heavy wetsuit of slime on all the time. Drinking lots of water with fresh lemons, have the fans going and just chilling.
Also...Maxi is not digging the humidity! Can you tell?

Sunday morning walks...about 5 mins away from our home. Maxi and I do 7 a.m. walks to escape the sweltering heat. But totally worth it to wander around in the quiet world and drink in some of this beauty. Looks like a #monet painting, doesn't it? #soulmedicine #wanderings #sunday
After a week or so of #oilpastels #stabilo and #watercolors I'm back to my luscious paints + inks!!! So yummy I could just eat them all up!!
I find that stepping away from the materials I normally use gives me a fresh perspective when I get back to it. Makes me more daring, adventurous and curious. Happy arting out there, friends ♡

"Love many things, for therein lies the true strength and whosoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well." #vangogh *Quick sketch with watercolors and Stabilo

A lazy summer afternoon messing around in my #artjournal.  I'm sitting on the porch (my fave place to hang out) and it's raining. Which is heavenly to me.
Keep on arting, friends. Keep on creating...gardening, cooking, baking, loving, crafting, dancing, singing, writing. Keep on using your hearts and souls...your intellect, curiosity + hands. Most of all...keep on keeping on♡
