    Sneak preview of a 10”x8” commissioned piece I’ve been working on!❤️ Just now I scraped the face so I’ll need to redo that and then do some final touches all over!🎨 That’s the difference between a commissioned piece and my 2-hr studies I’ve been doing since those aren’t commissioned.🤔 With a commissioned piece, I’m not limited to a time-frame so I get the added perks of overthinking the piece and the self-imposed pressure of it being a commission!😂 Buuut...even though I may overthink it, I will eventually get it how I picture before I’ll signed it no matter how long it takes!😜 And I have really noticed the benefits of doing all of these study pieces in helping me simplify the pieces and limit overthinking/overworking!😊 I’ll step away tonight from this one and do my next study and start again with fresh eyes on it!😁 The person that commissioned probably doesn’t know I’ve started it, so let’s see if she notices!😉 ___________________________________

    It’s been a busy past couple days and I crashed last night without doing my 2-hr study.😔 But I’ve gone through and made some other additions and updates to both my website and etsy, so check them out!❤️ This is a #throwback to a fun piece I did earlier this year!🎨 __________________________________

I’ve started on a couple of my commissions since being back from the kiddos and my getaway!😁 There’s some great ones I’ll be working on!❤️ I still feel like I haven’t touched base back with everyone that reached out to me while we were out of town, but I have so many ways that people can get ahold of me, I think some get missed.😬 So if you’ve reached out and we haven’t talked again, I promise it’s not intentionally and please send me another message!😊 It started about the beginning of September last year that I was non-stop until Christmas, so I’m trying to stay on top of everything as soon as I get them so I’ll be able to get all y’all taken care of!😜 ___________________________________

    I think the Sawtooths are some of the hardest mountains to paint because there are so many different colors that come out in the rocks. Orange, green, blue, yellow, red, pink, purple. Everything you can imagine. It’s hard to capture them all and make the painting cohesive. Idaho is aptly named the “Gem State” for the many precious stones and gems that are found here. I often imagine the beautiful and almost overwhelmingly grand  rock faces being embedded with opals, garners, topaz, cobalt, copper and jade, giving them their distinct and diverse colors. 
Aside from mountains being able to stop you in your tracks, this lake, and the two below it, were the most brilliant colors of blue and turquoise I think I’ve ever seen in an alpine lake. 
It doesn’t really get better than this weekend: backpacking into a beautiful alpine lake through the most gorgeous mountains with great friends, laughing and chatting and singing Brandi Carlile, playing cards, painting, sun bathing, skinny dipping, reading and chasing ground squirrels off our packs constantly. Then we finished the weekend off with a run down the Main Payette on the way home. All my very favorite things crammed into 3 days. Who could ask for a better life?

    A lot of glazing ahead of my today and tomorrow. Each tile is hand glazed by me. No machines, no assembly line. Underglazes to add color with a small brush...every detail made perfect. Made just for you. ❤️ #tile #arttile #ceramictile #firecreekclay

    Today's pics from last week's vacay to the mountains....river mirror.  Seriously....the St. Joe River is the BEST mirror!! It's deep & slow at this point, and when there's no wind, it's like glass. .
I grew up on this river & consider it mine.😂😂😂 So from my river to your eyes & hearts.....enjoy some river mirror shots.  Are you looking at them right side up or upside down?????😁😁😁😁😁

Tomorrow's topic......fossils.  That's right, FOSSILS!!!
