I’m all about that texture.
I am relearning the best times of day to work in my new studio space. The lighting is just right, right now. Today I am supposed to be cleaning and organizing (still!). I hate cleaning 😭I will hopefully get a picture of my hands at work for today’s #marchmeetthemaker, at some point. ✋👋😬
Today’s #marchmeetthemaker prompt is “full time or part time”. I feel lucky enough to say this is my full time gig. I teach privately and paint my butt off in the winter, and I do art fairs in the summer.
This beetle is on the work bench today. I love adding layer, after layer, of my unique watercolors to create texture on these pieces. The beauty of painting on panel, is you can see the texture better than behind glass.
Today was just a something day. But at least I painted this luna moth.

I had a wonderful experience at the South Haven Art Fair on July 1st and 2nd! A lot of paintings went to new homes, and I met so many wonderful people and artists. I also won the Emerging Artist award, which was a huge surprise. I definitely plan on going back next year.
Visit me at the Richland Art Fair on July 15th and the Saugatuck Fair on July 29th
