Natalie Who?

So, babies are hard…
But SO worth it ๐Ÿ’œ


It’s been 8 months since my last painting… 
Eight. Whole. Months.

I used to paint every day, all day and when I wasn’t painting I was hawking my wares at local art events and tradeshows- oh, how I’ve missed it! I was so glad to get back to my easel, palettes, brushes and creative accoutrements. Spent a lot of time searching for long lost supplies (found a lot of my paints had dried up), re-organizing my art space and generally just banging off the rust. It’s like riding a bike…right? Anyway, I did manage to finish my first post-baby painting and the inaugural piece of 2018! I’ve also switched from PC to a Mac so fumbling my way through all the different processes for scanning, editing and documenting images has been just that…a fumble. But I strive to fumble in spectacular fashion and/or at least have fun doing it. *gulps wine* 

Aside from a few Christmas commissions, this guy was the last painting to emerge from my studio waaay back in October 2017 “Tantrum”


He enjoyed a 2 month long showing in Okotoks’ “Art In The Hall” exhibit where he sold and went on to his forever home =) Being one of my personal favorites, I had a metallic print made up and it’s currently hanging in my studio. 

As for the latest…

The Art Of Being

The Art Of Being


Looking for answers, unable to see
Sought resolution standing right before me.
Self created paradoxes, illusions inherent
Once ready, the answer becomes so apparent.

Often the hardest, the simplest things
The solace a virtuous regimen brings.
Pearls of wisdom surround me, aching to awaken
Correcting the truth, so often mistaken.

Vying for absolution, fearful of change
Upheaving the world I can't help but estrange.
Inner savior and saboteur, rivaling to find
An escape from the prisons of "me" and "my mind".

Eternal forgiveness, flaws, vices and foes
Dissolve the illusions of suffering and woe.
From erroneous perceptions, comes the long awaited transfer
To all timeless questions, there is only one answer...

(…and the answer is hidden in the poem – look at the first letter of each paragraph)
