I’ve always heard “imitation is the best form of flattery” 💕 and my friend @kathycousart posted of her gorgeous hydrangeas this AM and it sparked a desire to share mine. Kathy is an incredibly talented artist, check out her beautiful feed.
I’m finishing up this piece today that you can get a peek of in the backdrop. So much inspiration bursting forth in my yard and it’s a beautiful day in Eastern NC to take advantage of it. AND..... it’s the last day of 5th grade for my boy and we are ready for summer!!! 🙌🏻
I couldn’t decide between 10,000 photos of my child for a Mother’s Day post but it was a lovely sweet weekend and I picked up my new daily coffee drinker from talent @willdickertceramics during @artisphere ☕️
So delighted to be taking part in @brain_appeal @aletterinmind 2019 exhibition - Making Light Work.
I’m really looking forward to coming up with ideas and creating an original artwork for this year’s theme - to define what ‘making light work’ means to me. ...........................
This cause and exhibition is especially significant to me since practising art has helped me come to terms with, and aid recovery of, my own devastating brain injury and surgery from a subarachnoid haemorrhage. It is thanks to the skilled neurosurgeons and advances in neurological research, that I am still here today. ............... I am still under the care of neurologists, and having regular scans to monitor the aneurysm that ruptured so rely on ongoing research to ensure that I am still around for some time to come! There are many neurological conditions and many people will often know someone, be it a friend or family member, who has been affected in some way.
Artworks are created on an envelope and will be exhibited anonymously, and on sale, from 26-29 September 2019 at the [email protected] on London’s South Bank. Each artwork will be priced at £85 and sold in aid of the National Brain appeal.
From the curator of A Letter in Mind: “Capturing specific light conditions and effects have continuously fascinated artists; from studying our perception of space through light, working with candlelight and moonlit subjects, portraying how light changes across varying times of day, seasons and weather, to the embodiment of light in photograms and installations using both real and artificial sources.” ......................................................

I turned a corner and there it was! Sometimes such creativity and combinations appear unexpectantly. These moments are just too much to contain and I MUST share this artistic presentation. Just take a look at the detail and subtle coloring of the painting, owls in perfect juxtaposition playfully occupying the same branch. And then, contrasted with the deep umber colors of the artwork, appears a ball of "moving" glass bubbles that seem to add dimension to the scene. Oh, if I only had a large wall in my house to hold this drama! #artandlight#asymmetry#nyaesthetic @oly.studio #interiordesignerfootprint#luxurylook#brownandwhite#surprisecorner#alwayslooking#owls#bubblelight
