New art for a new year. 

“Pizzazz” by René Nesbit

Just a splash of color I made one night, when I already had some paint out. Painting always leaves me with such a relaxing feeling.

Peachtree Recitals

Three shows in one day ! My super tired selfie is an accurate depiction of last weekend. Lol

But I am SO proud of all three of my modern classes who gave such heartfelt performances.

And all the brave littles who were probably onstage for the first time ! 🌟

All the Letters You Burned

“All the Letters You Burned” by René Nesbit

Haven’t painted anything in a while. Something burning through the sky seemed sort of appropriate.

Udemy Art Therapy : Prompt 6

What would your paintings say, if you gave them a voice ? 

This was the *very* interesting 6th prompt from my online @udemy art therapy course. I was a little intimidated when I first started the task, but totally into it, once the thoughts started to unfold. 😃

My paintings would be bold, of course ! Strong in color choice and placement, they would be serious about whatever they needed to say. Lol

Swipe through to see the three pieces I picked to analyze, along with the “voices” I imagined for them. 🎨

This prompt revealed some very unexpected and unusual things !

Confrontation !  ... between characters 1 & 3... 

“Dare You to Move” is a trio piece, set alongside story and poetry, as a part of @danceatlanta’s A.M. Collaborative program.

Filmed at @en_pointe_school_of_dance

Beautiful music by @vitaminstringquartet

Choreography by yours truly, René Nesbit

Can’t wait to put all three pieces together and pair with @thegreenchest’s writing !

(Oh, and the bear ears are from Halloween. Lol)

Thankful for a lot of things, but most especially my painting, signing baby. 😊

I hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season... and that you have a chance to make something colorful soon, too.
