I hope to inspire and be inspired by goodness and grace in this new year. I didn’t choose this word, it chose me. Funny how those things happen.

Inspired by Christy Tomlinson’s work, I made this piece specifically to donate to the Captive Hearts Women’s Shelter Benefit Gala’s silent auction in Grover Beach, California. Paper, acrylic, and ink on canvas 12 x 12. Sold

Painting By Heart

PBH Class

What an incredible class taught by the ever-so-awesome Jenny Doh!

Almost finished!
