I keep sitting down to write a blog post, and feel at a loss. I would love to have weekly posts, but I don't always know what to say. That usually means it's time for me to share with you an artist I like or a book I'm reading. Today I'll go with the former
I came across painter Betsy Walton on Instagram and love her juicy colors and organic shapes. (all images come from her website). Here are some pieces that I especially love.
So there's some of Betsy. I don't know much else about her, except that I believe she is near me in the Pacific Northwest.
One more thing I'll share before I go. I'm super excited because I just ordered some Christmas ornaments with my Holiday Alpaca on them! Every year I hope to have Christmas ornaments to sell, and this is the first year I"m doing it! Once they're in, I'll let you know!
It’s pouring down rain and I’m cooking some butternut squash soup in my Instapot. I lit my vanilla pumpkin candle, and I’m feeling nice and cozy. And my little dude is sleeping so I can actually appreciate these things.
I just love the change of seasons.
We got to enjoy walking in some fall leaves this morning before the rain began.
I don’t have much else to say today. What are some things you love about Fall?
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
