Go with the FLOW!

Go with the FLOW!

Had such a great time teaching my Go with the FLOW! art workshop last night! Special thanks to all the wonderful women who came out to join me and to my daughter Zoe for taking photos!  This paint pour workshop was the perfect way to illustrate the importance of letting go and going with the FLOW!  The process was fun and the transformation and results were beautiful and amazing, just like the women who joined me!

Lemons and Lavender!

Thought I would share these two new paintings inspired by my recent visit to a beautiful lavender farm!  I love the sight and scent of lemons and lavender!  What a great way to spend a summer day!  Soaking in the sunshine and the soothing scent of lavender while sipping sweet lavender lemonade and hand-picking these gorgeous aromatic purple blooms!  Both lemons and lavender evoke the spirit of summer for me.  Lemons shout bright, clean, crisp, citrus delight and lavender whispers relaxing, lazy days and magical nights.

"Lemons" - 16" x 20"

"Lavender"- 16" x 20"

If you are interested in purchasing one (or both) of these original paintings or ordering prints, please email me at:!  Paintings are 16” x 20” and are $150 each or $275 for the set.

From MIA to Moving Forward! Lots happening behind the scenes!

I may have been MIA on the blog lately, but LOTS has been going on behind the scenes!  
Here is a quick update and shout out to all my friends!  

The most recent news is that I've just completed my life coach training and am now a certified professional life coach!!!  Check back soon to see how I am integrating this new dimension into my practice and my artful offerings!  I love my tribe of fellow coaches!  They are all such passionate, positive people doing great things in the world!

I recently completed another wave of beach paintings!  These original artworks will be heading to OBX shops soon!  If you want to catch one before they're gone, send me an email!

I had the pleasure of creating some commissioned artwork for a childhood friend who is chasing her dream of producing a solo album at age 50!  April is a talented musician and songwriter.  Her album is called "Second Chances" and you can check it out here aprilkmusic.  April wanted a dragonfly for the album cover and poster.  She asked several artists to create works inspired by her songs and lyrics. The top right piece was created for the song "Sunless Sky" and the bottom right for "Old Love." I'm so excited to be part of April's adventure and help her launch her dream!

Another friend recently hired me to lead an art project at her daughter's birthday party! What a fun and inspiring day with these young artists!

Yet another friend hired me to host an art party for her girl scout troop!  Loved painting with these amazing teens which included my own daughter and her friends!

Though I may not have kept up with my blog or social media this last month or so,  I have been busy teaching, learning, sharing, painting and spending time with family!  All pretty important stuff in my book.  More changes to come this summer as I move forward!  Please check back often for new artwork and offerings!

Free as a Feather Thank You!

I enjoyed teaching my "Free as a Feather" art workshop the other night!  Thanks to all the wonderful women who joined me!  Love your special feather messages--each so beautiful, personal and unique!  Here are a few photos from our evening and a little background on my fascination with feathers.  May your spirits be free and your dreams take flight! xxoo ~Jackie

When I was a child, I was told that feathers were dirty and carried disease and to NEVER pick them up!  As a child, I believed this and did what I was told.  However, as an adult, I no longer simply do as I'm told.  I am drawn to feathers--their beauty, their connection to freedom and flight.  So, I began picking them up!  I became fascinated with feathers--wondering which birds they came from, what messages they were carrying, what meaning and symbolism I could apply to my life and circumstances.  And thus, my collection began.  Two of my favorite feathers are my red-tailed hawk feather and my brilliant blue jay feather found just days before my workshop!  Hope you enjoy!
