New Light

New Light, acrylic and mixed media on canvas

I've been busy working on a whole bunch of new originals in the studio. I just finished this one and have added her to my shop, here

The glow of early autumn and the delicate nuances of new light were the inspiration for this whimsical mixed media painting. 
The gentle deer bends to nibble on a blade of grass, an unguarded moment, the soft beating of butterfly wings rustle the air.

I have been really enjoying drawing with ink on a few of the paintings in progress and I fell in love with this little doe. The painting just felt like it needed the simplicity of the relationship between the butterflies and the deer, when I work on a painting this simple I feel an internal quiet as well. My soul calms, my spirit rests....and that enters into the painting.
Whisper, or you might startle her.
Sending you calm. Sending you rest.

Yes, calm and rest. Thank you. I needed that. And whispers so as not to frighten dear doe. This is a beautiful post for a beautiful painting. Thanks for reminding me to slow down.

And congratulations on your lovely calendars. I'm sure they are going to sell out quickly. What a treat.
