Happy Reminder 

As most of my regular and long time readers know, I returned to college a couple of years ago to finish my degree. In a couple of weeks I will be embarking on my last year. However, I received an email today regarding last year. I made it on the Deans List last semester and am just being informed now.  Giggle. Thanks for the reminder that in due time and with persistent hard work Happy reminders will find their way to brighten your day. Thanks BU!  Best of success to everyone returning to school this fall. Brain food on!

New from the easel next door

Jes is busy working on pieces for The Light of Nebraska series. The framed landscape is a warm up piece. When you switch gears from one style of painting to another you also change palettes (the colors you paint with) . So it’s nice to do a warm up piece to get your color theory organized for the style of painting and the subject. I like to take a creative break- Jes calls it yummy baked goods. 😉 Stay on the Awiya side of life my creatives!

Spring Stretch Inspires the Spirit

Jes and I took a week of vacation from our work with a nonprofit. Much needed time off to explore the spring art on display and friends. Now back to the studio & work. Here’s the latest finished piece for the Palette to Canvas Light of Nebraska series.
