To Remy with Love : Commission Painting

Remycommission2They say a picture is worth a thousand words but the life a painting can give a picture says so much more. Remy is the subject of this commission. A rescue Schnauzer adopted by a lovely couple with love in their hearts and a good home to give. He was abused and neglected and now he resides in a Remycommissionbeautiful home with a Schnauzer brother and his two dads. This painting is still in progress and you will have the chance to view the completing of it through my channel next week. Be sure and watch!

Pets Welcome!

I love animals. They’re cuddly and theraputic. Somehow they always manage to warm your heart and become part of the family.  A couple of weeks ago I recieved the sweetest photo of Jethro. His Mama Cindy loves him in his pajamas and made sure this was the picture I had to paint him from. She says he gets cold and likes to get up under her shirt too. He definitely seems to have huge character for such small stature.   23897738_1893280047366536_1057805529_n

“Jethro in his jammies”

16×16 canvas in acrylic

Every pet portrait I do feels special.  Reading the lovely descriptions these animals families provide me with help me connect with them even more. It’s a plus that by the time each portrait is complete I know that for their family I have captured an important furry friend forever.

RPG Map Adventures

   Enter the world of RPG and nothing will ever be the same

One of nine nations in the world of Arreanna, the story of the land of Keswick is an adventure that captured my imagination from the moment it was introduced to me. I was instantly captivated by this world and its inhabitants so when asked to make their vision of this nation a reality there was only one answer. While alot of the detail was left up to my own artistice style, the inspiring geographical desciption of this new world was the first step into the making of the print. The finished map is in black ink on unstretched canvas. Even unrolling the piece onto the table for final inspection from one of the authors brought on the feeling of impending adventure. Working with two talented writers who have lived and played in the world of D@D for decades gave an RPG virgin such as myself a new perspective on the true art of where these worlds can take you.

The beauty of the landscape carried me across the Misty Sea into the depths of a world so alive with mystery and magic I found myself lost in the making of this map. Journey on the path from the catacomb caverns of the majestic Five Kings mountains through the barron landscape of the harsh desert of the Thunder Wastes all the way to the elven city of Nardaul within the Raun Wilds. Struggle to survive and find adventure in the realm of Keswick and don’t forget your map. The first of many from me in the RPG world.

Growing up these words were dangerous. Sometimes I still find them difficult to utter aloud. Too many people fear what they do not know or understand and all too often condemn truly beautiful things based on that fear. Born an empath into a christian cult faith I lived with fear everyday of my life. I had no idea why I felt a push and pull within myself, why I felt so much, why I always felt the need to hide who I truly was. I could say I wish I’d known what an empath was when I was young, it sure would have helped to know how I always seemed to know exactly what people needed and why feelings would sweep across me in an instant. Maybe I could have known how the trees really do speak, its not just in my head and how everything has a connection in nature, the true value of knowing the cycles of the moon and following them. To have known there really is something to astrology and how it can help us to know ourselves and others better. That the plethera of crystals the earth provides for us really are a source of energy and healing. Perhaps if I had known there is an energy residing in and all around us that we have the ability to hone , use and even project to create a multitude of wonderous things for ourselves. I grew up with the learned belief that the paradise belonged to those that were as little children. I understand that statement more now than ever. Children still believe in magick, they see it all around them in everything because truy it is. A Witch is one who knows how to gather their energy with intention. A Spell is that energy in use for whatever it may be. Magic is but the entire world around us. Divination is but just one way to explore where we are where we are going and the ways we may be able to get there. The Pentagram is a representation of the elements and Spirit so that we may remember we are always connected. I could wish I had known so many things, mostly known them sooner rather than so much later. However when it comes down to it I only wish I had known that Spirit has given us all we need to grow, all we need sits right there inside of us waiting for us to release the fear and find the strength to go beyond what seems possible. To embrace each other and the magick we hold inside.
