This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private painting lesson today. I loved how we brainstormed some ideas, which included birch trees then led to so many other friendly elements that fluttered into the scene.

I'm a big fan of the art dolls by @sashapokrass. I bought this panda doll from her and I've been wanting to paint it for some time and I finally got around to it today. The bear is teeny tiny ... fits into the palm of my hand ... and incredibly, the head and all the limbs are moveable. It takes true skill and workmanship to create such an art piece.

I referenced a photo by @aquietstyle for this work. Speaking of quiet, it's been a quiet, highly focused and productive day in the studio. Just the way I like it.

For a solid year + after my late brother passed, I painted paper boats. Prior to painting them, I folded them. Endlessly I folded them as I tried to empathize with what his chronic depression might have felt like. Like a sinking boat.

I enjoy revisiting the subject matter when it floats back into my art. Paper boats take me back to so many emotions. They take me to tragedy that evolves into melancholy that miraculously evolves into beauty, renewal, peace, and love. And actually, many other things.

I am enthralled by how wire invites the shadow into the painting. Or maybe it compels it to do so.

I referenced a photo from @huffingtonpost for this work, while thinking of this poet and this poem:

THE GIFT OUTRIGHT #RobertFrost
The land was ours before we were the land’s
She was our land more than a hundred years
Before we were her people. She was ours
In Massachusetts, in Virginia,
But we were England’s, still colonials,
Possessing what we still were unpossessed by,
Possessed by what we now no more possessed.
Something we were withholding made us weak
Until we found out that it was ourselves
We were withholding from our land of living,
And forthwith found salvation in surrender.
Such as we were we gave ourselves outright
(The deed of gift was many deeds of war)
To the land vaguely realizing westward,
But still unstoried, artless, unenhanced,
Such as she was, such as she will become.
