Gasparilla Half Marathon

I had the best weekend. Last minute invite and decision to go run the Gasparilla half marathon.. and the whole time I was running I kept thinking, "how freaking lucky am I that I am able to do this?" I have legs strong enough to carry me 13 miles, and friends good enough to drive us the 100 miles to get there and share beds with, and non-stop laughter and good vibes the entire time. Thank you for sharing your weekend with me, girls, and for being in my life.  I will never stop being grateful that this is my life.

If You Were a Mermaid

If you were a mermaid, you might look like this. 
You might also want me to paint you a body, but you'd have to wait..

Art Heals

I woke up today feeling an inexplicable, weird blend of despair and lethargy. I came into my little studio to paint a bit, with no clear goal or idea in mind, and found myself starting to cover an already finished painting with dark, dark gray. I covered almost half of it before I realized what I was doing. To counter it, reached for the white, and ended up painting myself a message. I guess I now know part of what is weighing on me. And what I should focus on today. Doing what I can.

Songs that Mermaids Sing

"a seashell is never empty, 
it is filled with many things.
it holds the sounds of crashing waves,
and songs that mermaids sing."

Intuitive Painting

when I spread paint around intuitively, without any goal in mind, sometimes even with my eyes closed, I am always amazed by what comes out. this showed up for me this morning and is really speaking to me.

Morning Mantra

painting (and burying) a mantra 
into the background of this one today.. 
this one aimed directly at myself 
as I work through some deep shit. 
don't allow your wounds 
to turn you into a person you are not.
