My brother passed away a few days ago. He was a gentle spirit. Fun kind hilarious outgoing to the extreme. Loved nature animals and making art. He will be missed by all who crossed his path.

Happy international women’s day to all the other women of color who are mamas who maybe working three jobs who may do more than their share of the child rearing who may have fought the odds to be something everyone said they couldn’t.  To women who have to fight twice as hard to be heard or believed because they are not white and not a man.  To women who don’t care what others think because they finally believe their truth and don’t need approval.  To women who give to others because they find joy in kindness.  To women who know that they will make it through their struggles and be wiser because of them. To women who try new things who go new places who dare do live their wildest dreams.  Happy international women’s day to all of the awesome women I know making the world a better place. You know who you are.

Goodnight india. Hope to see you soon.

The past four weeks this lovely place has been my home. So sad to leave the beautiful people, fresh foods, ocean that has warm tropical waters with striped fish swimming around my ankles, Ayurvedic massages and yoga, butterflies lush gardens monkeys frogs elephants  and birds. The spotlight of the lighthouse spilling into my room at night beautiful sunsets rickshaw rides the discomfort of so much need and poverty. Smiling faces kindness dosas coconut water women dressed in bright colored saris with sweet smelling jasmine decorating their hair my family here and new friends. Loud music coming from brightly lit temples.  Sad to go.  So many beautiful memories.

14th century temple. Over 15,000 sculptures. Took 500 years and lots of elephants 🐘 to build

Night time vibes. Lying here listening to the ocean realizing he won’t be tiny and snuggly for ever. Acrylic and mixed media on wood panel.  48” x60”

I know this looks like an interior design shot but it is a doll house that @jenibrittonbauer made complete with one of my tiny prints.

Hard at work with my friend @greenmemestudio

I have noticed a lot of people being unnecessarily mean to others for no particular reason. People feel more justified to be angry judge mental or racist now more than ever.  I wish kindness were more appreciated.  #Loveisalwaystheanswer Love is always the answer in these divisive times. Prints available in pink and red on my website.

Bringing truth to light. Work from my new show up at @kpprojectsgallery gallery open 11-6pm tues -sat

I realized this year how important it is to listen without judgement and love your friends unconditionally.  I am so lucky to have wonderful friends who have walked through a difficult time with me.  Who show up on a moments notice and enjoy doing silly things with me.  To love unconditionally has been a gift of walking through hard things.  This painting sold at my show. “Unconditional Love” show up through end of month.  Stop by @kpprojectsgallery 11-6 tues - sat.
