I am a self-taught artist. Years ago before divorce happened I painted nearly every day. My preferences then were color and whimsy and I used acrylics and colored pencils. Then divorce happened and I haven’t been able to paint as much due to working full time.
It’s been about 12 years since divorce & my interests have changed. I love the idea of pastels since they blend so well and there is no clean-up. The color is vibrant. I used to do very simple shapes but now I’m very interested and trying to learn impressionism with the pastels.
This is one of my attempts. I don’t feel i’s finished yet because I’m not feeling as pleased as I would like with it. But it’s only the beginning.
Here’s a link to many of my acrylics that I’ve done in the past, if you’re interested:

The pandemic brought a lot of awareness to me about climate change, food shortages, how quickly our hospitals could colapse and more. This has sent me on a mission of becoming self-sustainable, empowered and working to help heal the earth. That is what the focus of this blog has become. The main way I'm working at this is through building a food forest and documenting as much as possible in hopes to inspire others. The more of us that do this, the more it will help heal the earth. When we buy produce from the grocery store, it was grown through monoculture, and that leads to use of chemicals that goes onto our food and into our planet, destroying soil. If we grow our own through permaculture (a food forest), we give the soil health. We also give ourselves health by growing organic foods and herbs that contribute to our health. There's a lot more to this, but this touches the surface. I'm only one year into this but my food forest is growing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
