It's such an honor to be a part of the Box Heart Gallery's family of artists! 17 and #werestillhere was such a success and so much fun meeting so many great people. Thank you @boxheartgallery for all you do.
I'm also grateful for great friends @missgriss16 @jgriss40 and husband for keeping poor William entertained all night. He was...done. 🙈
I really appreciate everyone who has supported me in my work, from taking my work home with you to sharing on social media, your kind words and generosity mean a great deal to me. Thank you for following my work and my story here. Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway. I wish I had all the time in the world (and materials) to make all the art that I wanted to make so that I could give it away to anyone who ever wanted it! I never realized growing up how time really is the most invaluable resource.

#workinprogress I've been neglecting instagram (sometimes isolation is creative bliss) but I wanted to keep you up to date! I have a solo exhibition coming up this April in Pittsburgh 🙈 I can't wait and also I can...#paintingsinprogress #paintinglikecrazy
We're just really sad for Halloween to be over around here 💔👻🎃 #favoriteholiday
Happy "Ween" 🎃 !!!
William's favorite Halloween words :
House (haunted house)
Ooooooh (usually precedes any Halloween word, (especially "bookoodeh") and is said in hushed tones with ominous wonder🙈😂💛)
Working on tracing/painting circles with William and learning about the moon this week seemed appropriate but he just calls them bubbles ⚪⚫⭕🔵🔵🔵🌘🌚
Sometimes I feel like I never know when a peice is finished. I could see this one evolving but I also enjoy where it's at, all distant and illusive.
I don't mind living my work in this limbo state but I'm forced to decide at least for this weekend. If you are in the Pittsburgh area on Saturday I will be selling at the Night Market in PGH Market Square from 5-10pm. Can't wait!!
I'm finding it difficult to adequately express the gratitude in my heart tonight. I may still be in a bit of shock.
After William and I picked up Alex from work today it began to rain as we drove home. We suddenly hydroplaned, I lost complete control of the car and we began spinning in circles down the interstate. In an instant I felt myself plead "It can't be now?" and almost in the same instant "It CAN'T be now" coming not from me but as a calm assurance from the Lord. We then crashed into the side of a hill as we slid into a ditch on the side of the road, just missing the metal guard rail by a few yards and also avoiding hitting any other cars. We were of course shaken up but it is a miracle we can say that besides a few scratches on the car and a broken headlight, we are all completely fine. I just wanted to share that I know that the Lord is aware of us and leads and guides and protects us as well as allows us to experience opposition. Our time on Earth is not arbitrary or random. I can testify that the Lord has a purpose for us and that he uses trials to strengthen, teach and ultimately lift us higher. What a blessing it is to know that the Lord has a purpose for me and my family, and that ultimately we will always be together forever.
