Midwest Living: Let’s Talk Art

Oh my goodness, we have been so busy in the studio this summer that I almost forgot to tell you…MY WORK IS FEATURED IN A LARGE MAGAZINE – Midwest Living May/June edition!

 

Midewest Living, May/June 2017

 

My favorite quote from the article:

“Fall in love The art in your home should do more than decorate. It should resonate, reflecting your personality, experiences and values. So don’t second-guess a piece that brings you joy. If the color or style doesn’t seem to fit with your decor, just know there’s always a way to make it work.”

You can read the rest for yourself here: Midwest Living, May/June 2017, Let’s Talk Art, page 74-81

A Moment’s Pause

“Life was not intended to be simply a round of work, no matter how interesting and important that work may be. A moment’s pause to watch the glory of a sunrise or a sunset is soul-satisfying, while a bird’s song will set the steps to music all day long.” Laura Ingalls Wilder, The Farm Journalist

The Artist’s Eyes


“To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.” —  Auguste Rodin

Mile Marker 591, 16″x22″


 

How it’s Remembered


“Perhaps everything is not how it is, but how it’s remembered.” — Denis Norden

The Real Things Haven’t Changed


“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.”  ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
