Some Schoodic Remembered drawings during #walthammillsopenstudios
. It was a whirlwind weekend! These are still available, DM if interested.
✨ Keep Calm & Sparkle On ✨
What's making you sparkle today? 💖
My newest floral piece with hand lettering! This has been the most intense handlettering I’ve done and I’m ready to make even more! Painting the flowers and recoloring later in ps was very therapeutic and fun. Don’t you think this is such a girl power quote? 😊🌸
Can you imagine this 18x24” piece in a crisp white mat in a beautiful white frame? Sigh. It’s calling for a bedroom or entryway...peaceful, boho but minimalist. Are you a match? You can find it for a STEAL in my gallery online. 🙌 Quick! Before it’s gone!!!
You’re launching & releasing a new body of work
and all the other ideas and artworks come rushing down in an avalanche of inspiration cos they see you’re bringing art to life... so you...
a) get frustrated & distracted and tell them to wait their turn
Which only makes them angry & makes you scared they won’t come back
b) get distracted and allow Resistance to use them as an excuse not to finish or go all in on this launch you’re doing
Which only makes them distrust you so they don’t come back. Not to mention, unfinished art gets toxic and drags all your magic down.
c) write it down and say I promise I’ll get to you later - share all you want. But right now, mama has to finish this launch
I choose C
What do you choose?

Here you go Muse - I promise I will get to all of you. Thank you for trusting me with bringing you to life & shining a light for the world.

Which means to BE creative as part of living. Regardless of motivations, distractions, Resistance or inspirations (especially the lack of!) #Project100

So excited! So inspired! So full and almost overwhelmed but swimming as best I can in this sea of creativity we have access to daily
Hygge [hoo ga]
1. The art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive.
2. To create well-being, connection and warmth.
3. A feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other.
4. Celebrating the everyday. ✨☕️🍂
I love that there is no direct English translation for this Danish word - it makes it all that more romantic and fascinating to me💫

Oh, how I love the new designs for my yoga pants and leggings! So excited to get a few pairs for my upcoming sabbatical!
for your Wednesday.
Ornaments are going up on the website today and I’m getting in such a festive mood seeing how all the cute photos turned out! So much ✨glitter!✨
Varnish time for more ladies! // One of the (many) reasons I find myself needing space to create while juggling the balancing act of parenting and homeschooling, is the joy of watching a dream dared take concrete shape. So many aspects of my life are futures-oriented. I pour myself into my kids well-being and education without immediate gratification or reward because I have hope for their futures. My energy opens doors of possibility for them. But in my art, I have dreams that take shape through meticulous care and work that carry both the possibility of hope in the beauty and meaning for the collector as well as the confidence that a tangible outcome of energy instills.
Raise your hand if you’ve started shopping for the holidays. 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️ This is just a small glimpse of the festivities coming to my mailing list next Tuesday + the rest of the world on BLACK FRIDAY (which I am affectionally calling Art-Friday in my head — no crazy department stores for me. No wayyyyy...) 😂 So if you’re not on my mailing list go ahead and join now so you’ll def get first dibs. Xox (link in profile)

The results of yesterday’s playful, exploratory Paint & A Pour!
If you watched my stories yesterday you'll know how BUZZING I was creating these swooping, moody layers of lush colour! 😍
I reached a magical moment where my work developed organically as I painted, and I was filled with this huge rush of excitement for all the new ideas that came into my head! Its a turning point for my work and I know awesome things are going to come from it. I can't wait to show you guys the finished piece but until then feast your eyes on these layers!
What do you see? A moody mountainside? A stormy seascape? Something else? 😍🌟🌈🎨
Some new original paintings (& other items) will be added to my shop soon.
I made this clutch in August and love the worn-in color and softer texture it has now. 🌵🌵// Now available in my Etsy shop #leatherwork #handmade #handstich
Hand painted logo I created for a business out here in SD. Talk to me about your vision and I will bring it to fruition. Collaborative idea with my friend Mike. His vision + my execution=Magic. DM for inquiries. #RuthyJaneArt
The waves rolled in, slow and gentle. And as they broke against the shore, they fell into snips of color like confetti.

My studio is so chock full of art at the moment!
Microscopic. Can not wait to turn this into something cool!!
Three dirty paint waters went into the two paintings I made last night. I’m so proud of them. They’ll be released along with a collection of Color Studies after the holidays, but if you’re looking to get in on these calm, autumnal colors sooner than that, I gotcho back. I gotcho back in the form of playing cards, y’all ♠️
🔸 Loom kits are now available in the shop! 🔸 If you’ve wanted to get to a workshop but you aren’t local this is a great way to get started with a new craft. These kits include a beautiful handmade pine loom, 4 weaving tools, a muslin tote bag and a 17 page comprehensive learner’s guide written by yours truly! Be sure to check out my story which gives you a glimpse into this guide and all its goodies. Not only have I outlined a variety of techniques for you but I’ve also included many tips and tricks that took me years to discover on my own. 🎁 And if you’re one of the first five to purchase a kit in the next 24 hours I’ll throw in a free pair of these rad embroidery snips!
Still one of my all time favorites. “Calliope” - 36” x 36” original watercolor and ink painting ($2300 unframed, $3300 framed behind glass with a 4” white mat surround)
Watercolor on handmade paper (not made by this hand, but someone’s....)
Think one of these bad boys are too big to fit under your tree this year? 🎄🎄🎄 If you’d love to give a commission as a gift, but want the recipient to be able to speak with me about color palette, size, etc...don’t worry, I gotchu! 🎁 🎁🎁 Every year, I offer small hand painted gift certificates good toward custom commissions in the new year. AND, this holiday season, I have a lil incentive as well! Any panel commission booked between now and December 15 will get a FREE resin coating(surfboard commissions not included)! 💦💦💦 I realize I’m at the risk of sounding like a used car salesperson, but don’t delay! DM or email me to get on my calendar...currently, commissions have an estimated completion date going into March 2019. Happy holiday season, folks! ☮️
