Life & Art

Hi there!

It's a gray morning here in Durham, ON and I'm still in bed snuggling with my 9 month old, it's a PA day today which means the 3 yr old is home and mentally I am saying get up and make waffles for breakfast and a green smoothie but my body has plans to stay in bed all day!  Ha! Wish I could do that but alas I'll get to those waffles!  

So lately with the 9 month on the move, I haven't had much time to paint, and hopefully I'll be able to soon, I'malso currently  trying to get my devotional blog running on a daily basis and thinking about the fact that my time at home with the kids will soon be up and then back to the 9-5.  

I've spent a lot more time at home since fall started and have been able to hang a few art around the home which always brings motivation and smiles. 

I'm also currently dreaming up a new color palette for my winter batch..

Ok my time is up 3 year old is here!  Have an awesome day!

P.S.  These watercolors are still up for sale.


Art Styling & Installs

Happy Labour Day to all celebrating!  It's such a gorgeous day here in Toronto and I'm about to take the girls out for some water fun! But before I do I thought I'd share some of my art installations!  Enjoy!



Parisian Love

There's no secret that I love a good Parisian themed home.  Throw in some unique and amazing art, the ever popular gilded mirror some amazing millwork and  for a twist, some artistically designed furniture and voila you've got some major eye candy!

 I'm dreaming up a scheme for my dining/living room and these photos from Elle Decor are giving me major inspiration right now!  

Now where can I find an amazing carpenter to give my walls some life?!


AGO Favorites

Last week I decided to take a trip with my girls to the Art Gallery of Ontario, it was way overdue and I figured my eldest  should be old enough to appreciate art in various forms right? Well sort of; she found it exciting running in the open spaces like she was in a gymnasium.

and although that was not the plan I had in mind, she did absolutely give me joy when she chose a lovely Warhol Print from the shop to take home.  

As for me, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit - the Picasso pieces and photography capturing the aftermath of nuclear explosion were simply breathtaking and were some of my favorites. 

I will most likely be taking a single trip again soon, you'll probably find me - pastry & coffee in hand (a la Holly Golightlyin Breakfast at Tiffany's) staring at Antigonous in the storm by Joseph Wright of Derby, this moody piece is absolutely  a fav!  

I captured a few other fav's I hope you'll enjoy!
