All Dressed for Baking!

I’ve created a ton of fun little sketches for the holidays.  This time of the year is full of so many fun events.  Recently, I participated in my very first cookie exchange.  I absolutely loved it and we are planning next years event already!  This sketch is from my art journal, influenced by the sharing of goodies and the flare we have for dressing up during the holidays.  Baking is fun and why not dress it up a bit while we are doing it!!

Wishing all of you the best this special time of the year!

Blue Horse

This horse means so much to me. I did this sketch after a trip to Santa Fe last year in October. I came across the sketch while rereading my art journal. I love this sketch because it was drawn without a visual aide such as a photo or picture. It’s been difficult for me to visualize an image in my head and simply sketch it…until this blue horse. I painted two horses after Blue was sketched. Both paintings sold. Horses are a beautiful animal that I love. I will continue to create horses, Blue being my first inspirational vision put to paper. I know the color was influenced by the art in Santa Fe…so much color in the art and environment surrounding that beautiful city. I’ll be going back there one day!

My little winged friend reminds me to keep my promises to myself and be true to my dreams.

The mind can go in a thousand directions,

but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace.

With each step, a gentle wind blows.

With each step, a flower blooms.
