Strength and Beauty Surround You

Strength and Beauty Surround You

All summer long I have been incredibly excited about an idea for a new series of paintings that has been swimming around in my head and spilling out into my notebooks. I have been thinking of them as my Affirmation Series, each piece will be based on and illustrate an affirmation that I have created and that I think people could use more of in their lives...myself especially.

Today I began painting this new series and decided to start with the idea that Strength and Beauty Surround You, partly because I was so excited about using this strong deer silhouette and wanted to see where I would go with it. The image above is of the work in progress after my studio time today.

I am very excited about sending these affirmations out into the world and sharing them with you here. I am thinking that I will be able to do about 1 a week, so that will become one of my weekly features here! Yeah! This direction feels very good to me.

My critics seem to like where it is going too.
