New portrait of dad – another timelapse video

By Noelle | Mar 22, 2018

See this portrait I painted unfold in a time lapse video. My favorite part of this portrait was the beard, I love challenging myself and learning new techniques.  So often portraits are thought of as for kids, babies, families; but I love the idea of a portrait of Dad.   I loved getting to paint the…

new portrait artwork with a timelapse video

By Noelle | Mar 16, 2018

I always think it’s fun to watch videos of a portrait painting unfold. The way it starts out with color blocking and looking nothing like what it will end up like. Then the features slowly reveal themselves bit by bit.  I set up my time lapse camera and let it record as I spent a…

clearing out the excess so you can hear what isn’t being said but should

By Noelle | Feb 22, 2018

What if it’s not how much, but instead how applicable? What if the hurdles of past generations no longer apply to us?  It used to be the challenge was to get what was needed, find the correct information, learning opportunities, news of going ons…  not anymore.

finding true support in the silence

By Noelle | Jan 23, 2018

This is the era of speaking up, using our voices. Standing up for one another, speaking out against wrongs we see. It’s an empowering time to be a woman. After the marching signs are put away and the phone put on silent… I get into bed and it’s just me in my head and the…

I’ve figured out how to LOVE going in my laundry room

By Noelle | Sep 6, 2017

I’ve got the typical basement, unfinished laundry room. I love it and I’m so grateful to have it. After years at our last house of having only a closet off the kitchen with our washer and dryer in it, I’m grateful to have a room that is larger and offers more storage as well. However,…

Rewire your thinking! Shine your light brighter in the world!

By Noelle | Aug 11, 2017

  I was talking with a friend a few weeks ago.  She was sharing how she had quit smoking earlier this year, slowly she’s started to reward herself with pampering and self care.

when a mural is painted over… your gift erased

By Noelle | Jul 26, 2017

I came across these photos yesterday of these murals that I painted about 15 years ago in my parents house.  My mom had been wanting something with this Tuscan feel and when Skylar was a baby there was a time that we lived with them so I painted these murals kind of as my rent…

When history comes full circle… when the Little House on the Hill was born

By Noelle | Jul 10, 2017

This past 4th of July afternoon Bruce was sitting out on the porch and I was just waking up from a nap when a car came up our driveway. Bruce was chatting with them for awhile as I woke up and eventually made my way out there to see what was going on.  In the…
