Thankful for the best studio assistant of all time. @tulathegreat ...

Feeling pretty exhausted after putting up two murals back to back. It could be from staying up painting til 1:30AM a few nights, or the overall hype and physical toll (I just had a birthday during all that, I’m 36 now 🎉 and my body is not springing back 😬).

But there’s also such an emotional release when the work is done. I always feels a little sad and lost afterwards. Being so immersed and attached, to suddenly removed entirely is a strange experience.

So, I’m taking it slower this week and launching my beginner mural course and getting my shop ready for the holidays. Stay tuned for those offerings this weekend! 🙌

On that note: PLEASE, please, pleeeeeeaaase remember all of your small business friends and ditch the big corporations when shopping this year! 😘

When I installed this mural a few years ago there was metal bar top attached to the wall where that primed white stripe is. At the time, I made what I thought was the best decision: to lower the entire mural under the bar ... not realizing years later this space would go under major construction and I’d have to paint out that whole section 😂

This is the kind of problem solving I enjoy, and also why I’m so thankful most of this area was pattern I could make up.

Eyeballing that circle though, I felt like Claire in Six Feet Under with her art school homework where she had to draw a perfect circle. SHE WAS STRESSED (I was only stressed about the election) Who else LOVES that show?! It’s an all-time favorite of mine. Might be time for a re-watch.
...

If you’ve wondered what the heck I’m talking about when I say I paint murals off-site in my studio and then install them ... here ya go, this is what that process looks like. 🤪 Happy FriYay!

Thankful for the @maggierogers tunes 🎵Keeping me inspired
...

Throwback to this mural install a couple years back. Just gave this mural a makeover for the space’s new renovations. Stay tuned for all the changes! 🦉 🌺 💎 ...

Revisiting this one 🌸 💎 ...

My favorite photos are “Tula for scale” photos. @tulathegreat ...

Maybe I’m less stressed because of the giant Amethyst I painted the other week. (Jk) I just took this off my studio wall for a mural install.

Sending some healing energy your way too - we could all use it right now.

💎 Amethyst benefits: relieves stress, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety. Alleviates sadness and grief, and dissolves negativity. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities.🔮

What’s been helping you cope and relieve stress?

Laying down the base coat in this little cloud covering time lapse video.

☁️ Cloud painting tips: Lots of under painting (like what you see here!), Many paint layers for depth, Cheap hardware store wash brushes for airy texture (dry brush technique), and loads of matte medium for transparent washes & layering.

Manuevering this ladder in a room with a Great Dane takes a lot of skill and prayers. I’m happy to report there were no injuries. And also, today I locked down an install date for next week. 🙌This thing is ready to go! #letsgetthis ...

She’s still committed to being a part of this project despite the long hours I make her put in ... 😴 @tulathegreat ...

Slacking on the Instagram updates 🌺

It’s fall outside, but tropical in here
...

Not a throwback although it feels awfully familiar 🤔 I’m revisiting one of my favorite past murals due to some exciting renovations. The install is creeping up soon!

Do you know which mural this is?? 😉
...

Tula letting me know she wants to be a part of this new mural project. Mural deets soon! ...

Something I started doing a few months ago to heal my relationship with my personal art practice was to work on collages. I’m already essentially doing digital collage work when I design murals but I never thought about it that way before - plus, all of my mural work is for clients. This is something I wanted to do for myself without a plan, without expectations, and without sharing. (And without the added pressure of perfectionism) I needed a creative outlet outside of painting.

Tiny collages that I don’t share and keep to myself is the opposite of labor intensive giant murals on display for the public. So these feel really personal. And while I battled the idea of playing vs. making something for a purpose and profit, I’m gonna try to keep it going. 🤞

*Any other artists have deliberately private work you create knowing it’s for your eyes only??*

I planned to keep these totally private, but then an opportunity came up with @archenemyarts gallery, so I made one that echoed the mural I was working on at the time.

And I recently saw it sold 🙌 woo hoo!

You can still see all the artwork from the Pandemic Postcard Show on their website and in their gallery windows. Thanks again for the invite @archenemyarts 💓
