These are the brushes that get me through....rosemary , escoda and robert simmons.
when i began painting, i used only one or two brushes. ever.
over time i tried different makers, different shapes, natural hair and synthetics. i always have my go to brushes. and sometimes (when painting in the field) i often go back to one or two. but in the studio, i like to have a variety, and these are the ones readily available. perhaps one day, i’ll narrow it back down to only a few....but for today i’ll keep my arsenal from these three makers❤️❤️❤️ these brushes are all well used, well loved, and cared for. many of them i’ve had for over two years. if you take care of your stuff, it will take care of you. #worththeinvestment .

I heard it was national bird day! the audubon society posted a raven, so i though i would follow suit. .
“it is not possible to go forward while looking back”. a timely quote by ludwig mies van der rohe as the first week of 2019 rounds out, eh?

My favourite photo from yesterday’s plein air outing. “tivia”. i’ve known her since she was a long yearling. she was a charcoal colour back then. my father-in-law purchased her knowing she would turn gray, even though the breeders were confident she would stay dark. a few years after she slowly lightened he sent them a photo. she’s now approximately 15 years old and continues to silver every year. she’s a beauty, but cannot be ridden. she doesn’t like it, her hoof is turned, and quite frankly the cinch strap just isn’t long enough to fit her belly 😂 she’s been our official pasture pet all these years, who never lets us forget to give her oats. my husband says “mom always loved a gray horse”. alan made sure she got one. ❤️

I snuck out of the studio today to get in my first quick sketch of the year.
it was a luxurious 39f - who wouldn’t, right?? .
the break outside was much needed, as i’ve been working on a figurative piece, and find i’m making poor choices in laying down paint.
well, today the paint flowed, taking about 45 mins to see it come together. this boost of confidence, while painting from life in the fresh air with my buds will surely aid me as i head back inside to continue the special commission i’m working on. #fresheyes .
be sure to scroll through to see my posse! ➡️➡️➡️

I was listening to a podcast (@jenniferallwood ) that encourages creatives on social media to share more about themselves to the people who follow their work. after reviewing my profile, i realize most of the images posted are finished work, or paintings in progress. you don’t often see me or learn very much, unless you follow my stories. i love the stories because they are fleeting, but in the same breath, not permanent, which could leave a person wanting. so many of the artists i very much enjoy show a bit more of who they are, letting their people put a face to the name. so i shall go the literal route for you, and offer a fun fact: “i really enjoy podcasts.” —- art inspired, western inspired, business, philosophical, and spiritual.
@johndaltonart, @mtnprairie, @tylermurphy’s “the lonely painter” and @onbeing to name a few. what about you - any fun facts i should know? any fave podcasts i should know about?

#tbt to may, when i had a chance to learn from one of the greats. i dare say @ginsburg.max is one of the best teachers i have known in my lifetime. (and i have had the opportunity to learn from several excellent teachers.) there’s not a day that goes by that i do not reflect upon the lessons learned, or attempt to use in the studio or in life. “truth is beauty” ~ thank you max - hope you’re having a beautiful new york day!!

#maxginsburg #newyorkartist .
today, i’m spending the day studying. without study my practice is slow. without practice my painting is without growth. without growth, i ask you, what is the point?

I hope i always wear braids....i hope i can wear them into old age with grace without appearing to grasp at youth with longing in an unflattering way. i hope to wear braids into old age with dignity coupled with a sprinkle of panache. i hope that i can wear braids into old age, much like the renowned country music legend i have grown to love...i hope i can wear braids into old age, because, d****t it’s incredibly practical if you are not inclined to crop your hair short!
