Rainbow Eucalyptus. The unique multi-hued bark is the most distinctive feature of the tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones. The previous season’s bark peels off in strips to reveal a brightly colored new bark below. The peeling process results in vertical streaks of red, orange, green, blue, and gray.

I am one of those people who can’t stand to waste any supplies, so I end up with a basket stuffed with little scraps of paper. I’m making a collaborative journal with @ambs3707 and playing around with the leftovers. You can’t see the fold, but these will make cute little cards for gifts. Does anyone else hoard paper? 😳
на нашей совершенной планете каждый найдёт себе уголок по душе )) а что вам ближе?
пальмы узенький листок
али в поле колосок?
море бьющее утёс
али на лаптях навоз?
али тихий стон леска?
солнце спящее в волне
аль прогулка на коне?
скалы гладкие вдали
али горсть родной земли?
Day 63: “Sunbeams + Daydreams “ (repost, the lighting was horrible in the first post)
I found the inspiration for this painting awhile ago, it’s a pretty popular photograph. I never thought I’d be able to paint it well, but it’s not too bad for my first go of it. I’m learning not to trust my brain with the colors I want to use, and instead look up what the actual colors are.
Shred of extra inspiration:
Sunlight comes creeping in
Illuminates our skin
We watch the day go by
Stories of all we did
It made me think of you

Can I tell you all about one of my very best friends? @maureensfarrelstudios and I met nearly five years ago at our local community art gallery in Annapolis. I fell in love with her work first, but soon found her friendship and support invaluable in my life. As an artist, mother and wife, having a trusted friend like Maureen is the only way I could have survived some of the ups and downs of the last few years. We have shown together in numerous exhibits, the most exciting was in Chelsea, NYC in 2014. We have another show coming up next week and a big one in the spring. She's the perfect partner to help me push and stretch my boundaries and keep putting myself out there. The biggest reason she inspires me is that when I met her she agonized over her work and was far more cautious than someone with her experience and ability should have been... Fast forward to the present and she has won numerous prestigious awards, been accepted into highly covetted juried shows and most recently a ten page spread in Acrylic Artists'Magazine! I'll never forget the night during the first year I knew her when told me she wished she was younger because she thought we'd be best friends...I looked at her like she was crazy and said that age wouldn't keep that from happening. I was right, as time has shown, she is one of my very best friends.
