Thinking a lot these days about how to raise wyeth to love and honor all people, all races, all cultures. you mamas out there, what are you reading to your little ones? what are your favorite children's books that teach our b***s to love all people?
Woke up this morning thinking about all the ways we hide on instagram - behind beauty, behind otherworldly landscapes, behind what we create. i'm as guilty of this as anyone. yesterday thousands of american white supremacists stormed charlottesville and murdered someone in the streets. this is america in 2017. let our shock not be another way we hide. let us not be so afraid of losing white supremacist followers, clients, business that we perpetuate this violence with our silence. our sisters and brothers of color have been telling us white supremacy is alive for years - that it's not just something extremists believe and act on but what our culture and laws keep in place, something we benefit from. have we been listening? will we listen now?
Finally found a blanket that shows wyeth's greatest passion 🍈🍈 it remained white for about four seconds and is now covered in grapefruit, plum, drool, paw prints

I've been trying to get back to this place to paint for weeks now but we've had thunderstorms almost every afternoon. finally made the drive yesterday and of course we had just set up the easel and a picnic when it started to rain

Half of the paintings i've made since wyeth was born. people always ask me if my work has changed since having a baby, and so far my answer is no, but my conception of time has changed. but the more i look at the work i've made in the past ten months the more i do see shifts, from lunar bodies to human ones, from far off planets to the landscapes i grew up in, spheres to ellipses, moons to hands and boobs.
we've received a lot of requests for prints of the "boobs" and the "eclipses of the sun and moon" paintings and are happy to announce a limited number are now available on my website www.stellamariabaer.com. for a catalog of original paintings write email@example.com.
Because there's nothing better on earth than his smile after we've been apart
because i grew him in my belly! what
because he had his first babysitter this week and we both cried... i hope it will work because i love to paint and i love my baby and each brings something to my life the other cannot. in some crazy alignment of the stars his babysitter ended up having experience working in a ceramics studio, and sanded and gessoed my panels while wyeth napped!
