Vision Quest

I've been joking with my friends that this trajectory I've placed myself on is a lot less linear than I originally imagined, much like a vision quest. I keep finding myself on side-roads that need to be explored, and though they are technically distractions from...

The year as I found it.

I love new beginnings. I take my resolutions pretty seriously, and keep making new ones all the time. My feeling last year was that I had reached a wall with my art, and needed to push myself into uncomfortable territory, and stop reporting on my...

The Latest!

Hi guys! Thanks for swinging by my new site. I feel like I should explain that my brand is going through a transitional period. I've made the decision to start moving away from using Pippin + Pearl as a name for my blog associated with...

TINY ART.

"If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing. " - Marc Chagall When I first started painting again, I felt locked into my design sensibility. Everything I created needed to have a purpose. I was placing value on work...

Why don’t you experiment?

I don't think it's any secret that art is the salve for my soul. Part of the reason I've gotten away from selling my paintings is just because it brought this undue pressure to make my art into something that was about success, when in...

Love Letter to: Erin McIntosh

Sometimes I come across an artist who feels kindred to me in a way that I can't really explain. Erin & I share a name. We share similar styles, and her inspirations are similar to mine. She's clearly superior in a lot of ways --...

Tuesdays with Bert: Week 4

My mojo was absent during my 4th class with Bert. After a draining week, I just couldn't seem to get my idea to translate. The tone of my painting wasn't working. All in all, I redrew the face 10 times. I repainted the face 3...

Tuesdays with Bert: Week 1

As I'm sure many of you can imagine, it can be very challenging to work full time, be a mom & wife, and to find time for creating art. I absolutely love to paint, but I find it hard to justify the time when there...

Art: Jenny Andrews – Anderson

Happy Friday! I've been a little quiet this week because I'm spending every free moment working on the e-book for my Digital Creative Workshop. I've got some very exciting news to share on that front, but I need to lock down a few more details...

Art: Dana Oldfather

Hello there! I'm kicking off this new year with some AMAZING art from Dana Oldfather. I saw these top two works pinned last night by Design Milk and immediately fell down the Dana Oldfather rabbit hole. Her work is fantastic. I love the juxtaposition of...
