Bottled Wildflowers

Decorating my art studio with a myriad of hunted treasures is something I never get tired of doing. Old bottles, new bottles, broken doll parts, butterfly wings, and dried flowers from the garden seem to be staples on the nearby wooden shelves that embrace my painted canvases, as well as those yearning for attention. One foot in an antique store, or even browsing the internet, and I know there's trouble at the forefront... I always find something I feel I can't live without, something that can't
live without a spot on my shelves. With a natural, slightly rustic, aesthetic, transforming wine bottles (and other things, like old shoes) into vases is another favorite, so when I spotted this beautiful 2010 Belair-Monange St. Emilion from JJ Buckley, I knew all it needed was a handful of wildflowers.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
