Being an artist is not a “safe” choice. It means being vulnerable, expressing things that others may not understand or they may critique your skill rather than your intent. It means sometimes putting your soul out on display on an easel or a wall for people to casually walk by and choose to disregard. Sometimes it means representing subjects that make people uncomfortable, changing the status quo, pushing limits. It means choosing to add beauty to the world because you are simply compelled to do it. .

I want to take a moment to recognize some of my fellow artists who inspire me with their undying dedication to their craft. I know for a fact that they are so disciplined, they practice every single day, constantly challenging themselves and pushing their skills to the next level. Some even getting up at dawn before their kids wake to have some quiet studio time. You. Are. Inspiring.

"Earthworm”. Watercolour, 4 x 6 inches.
*
<<Squelch>> We leave a trail of muddy boot prints on the sidewalk. Indigo hands me her umbrella - the "stick that keeps her hair dry" - in order to squat down and peer into the gutter. Jumps. Squeals. Claps her hands. "ANOTHER ONE! He surprised me...". Worm-lover.
*
Addendum: A different day. A heavier downpour. A forgotten umbrella. Hair dripping, Indigo salutes each earthworm as we pass. "Sorry wormies... I have to go home!”
*
Inspired by the idea of a residency in motherhood, this painted series celebrates the birth of my daughter Indigo. Documenting toys, memories and milestones, the artwork encapsulates Indy's baby days.
