I know I've been totally absent from social media lately, but dude... Sometimes you just have to step back for a minute. 2018 has already brought some big wake-up moments for our little family, and transition is already coming fast. All of this has left us a little overwhelmed, and in an attempt to spend more time creating (my current alternative to therapy), I'm working my way through @jennarainey's Everyday Watercolor book - and having the most fun! I highly recommend it, whether you're new to watercolor or if you’re a mildly experienced doodler like me. 👍🏻 But really, it’s awesome.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It can be such an easy trap to get focused on what you don’t have and miss out on appreciating what you DO have! This has been a big lesson for me over the past six months, but I’m glad I’m learning it 🙌 . . . #letterer #letteringart #quotesaboutlife #wordoftheday #calligraphyart #calligraphypractice #createeveryday #livecreatively #foodforthought #procreatelettering #procreateapp #ipadlettering #ipadproart #tyxca #creativeart

This whimsical firebreathing "alebrije" is the very first carving that began my personal collection almost 30 years ago. After seeing it in my home, friends asked if we had these in the gallery. Hmmmm, was this an important message? Since then, we have introduced so many folks to this delightful art form from Oaxaca, Mexico. #alebrije #mexicanwoodcarving #mexicanstyle #mexicanart#livingwithstlye #livingwithfolkart #thethingswelove #thefolkartgallery #uniquegifts#visitmarin #lifeinsanrafael #marinstagram#marinmagazine #enjoy_marin #livingwithcolor #spiritanimal #spiritanimals #sanrafaelawesome #abmlifeiscolorful #livecreatively #lovesanrafael #coco

I've always found this to be true! Having a quiet time allows us to focus on what we *already* have. It becomes clearer how we can transform the things at our fingertips into something greater. When are you most creative?✨

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Albert Einstein Imagination proposes ways of achieving our goals. Confronted with a problem, we can turn our imaginations to generating many potential solutions. Of course, imagination is not enough. If you are highly imaginative but have inadequate knowledge of the facts on the ground, you will very likely choose the wrong option. But nothing can stop your mind running wild if you set it free!

WANDERLUST - Lately I've had a major case of it. It's been a very busy start to the new year, which I'm grateful for. Im still working on my Hoal List (er happens every year) but one thing I know for sure is travel is on the list! - Where do you want to go this year? Might I suggest Istanbul? It's the most amazing, friendly place! - #istanbul #merhaba #wanderlusting

If you set yourself up for success then you can’t fail! Amirite??? 🤔 . My 30 minute clean each night is taking me less than 30 minutes now SDSU’s because I’m setting ya elf up for success - I’m doing it consistently so things don’t have time to pile up, I’m prepping each room by removing things that don’t belong there as I’m doing day to day things, and doing things like making the bed and emptying the sink. . Each room has a ‘reset’ or something you can do to bring it back to ready each time you use it. Make the bed, empty the sink, clear off the coffee table (we eat on the couch do dishes often get left there!), etc. if you do those things then you’ll have an easier time tackling your chore list. . This may be a ‘duh, Moe’ moment for some but for me cleaning was always overwhelming mainly because I do too many things. I’m constantly on the go. And I lack discipline in this area!!! We’ve just passed the New Moon so get those Capricorn vibes going and GET STRUCTURED in any area of your life!!! You can do it, I know you can. 💗💗 . Ps we can’t have curtains bc the TV is too big for that corner 😂😂😂 it touches the window 😂😂😂 . #creativeliving #liv#livecreativea> #livecreative #cle#cleaningine #cleaning #motivation #homedecor #decorate #abmathome #abmlifeisbeautiful

The wood at the top of the piece appears withered away while the bottom remains full and expands out beyond its own shape. The concept of this idea is that, as you go through life, you lose parts of yourself. You invest parts of yourself in things that don't always end up working out and a result, part of you may feel as if it's been lost or taken. The alternative aspect to this concept is that, although life can take away from you, you also grow and transform into something more than you were before (as presented through the unwithered wood and puff balls). ⚬divided wood into 3 even pieces and paneled each one to ensure they had a smooth surface ⚬glued pieces together over night, placed with a clamp ⚬sanded the shape from a rectangle to a polygon ⚬drilled holes using different drill bit sizes, sawed crevices into the piece ⚬burned the wood to tint it brown ⚬added in gloss to shine parts of the surface and added on little puff balls. #concept #sculpture #saw #drill #sanding #woodshop #conceptart #art #studio #creativity #create #exploretocreate #livecreatively #design #artist #photography #photographer #colour #artistsoninstagram #young_artists_help #artsfeatures #expression #artsbynight #artsy #artaccount

I’ve always been a doodler even though I never realized that and not very creative at drawing things from memory. Last year I learned to do floral line drawing and since then my doodling days have been forever changed 😂. I can’t seem to stop drawing all kinds of flowers. My notebooks and journals are filled with them. . Here are two of my floral doodles that I thought would make a great #valentinescard. They are available now at my store (check bio for the link). . As I learn to draw and paint flowers more and more each day I realize how intricate they can be. I don’t know how many times I ended up switching to another flower because one turned out to be too intricate to do. I guess I need more patience ha ha ha. Have you ever done that? . To me it just shows how mind-boggling God is that He could create all these amazing flowers out of nothing ... my goodness ... He had no Pinterest to refer to !!! . Thank you Lord for creating so many beautiful flowers for us to enjoy, plant, take care of, draw and paint. ☺️ . . . . . . . . #valentines2017 #valentinescards #celebratelove #loveday #etsyshopping #floralillustration #modernflorals101 #365daysofart #flowerillustration #instagramartists #calledtocreate #womenofillustration #womenoffaith #christianartist #christiancreative #communityofchristiancreatives #makearteveryday #makeartthatsells #beinspirational #livecreatively #createdaily #creativeprenuer #illustrationartists #illustratoroninstagram #huffpostarts #botanicalartist #botanicalillustration #flowersoninstagram
