This work is the cover of Mark’s book called “Look At What’s Inside.” The subliminal layer began at a Paint With The Artist class and was completed a couple months later. The book shares my vulnerable journey of going from “failing” at my career to finding a path back to art. After feeding my “starving ‘inner’ artist” I invite the reader to feed their “starving ‘inner’ artist” and inspires others to keep creating.

The Resound team embodies the phrase “You Are Remarkable” and invites their clients to do the same. Ths Resound team is comprised of individuals that are all remarkable AND fun! After knowing Mike for well over 7 years and working directly with he and the team for over a year and a half, I feel this painting reflects the sophistication of their work, with the fun of who they are. I love so much of their personality shines through, including an inside joke of President “Taft.”
This Subliminal Layer for this work began at StioⓇ with a prompt of Winter Adventures. The winter season was about to begin and their tagline Let The Outside InⓇ was a great source of inspiration. After spending 50 days on the mountain during the 2023 ski season, the feel and look of fresh corduroy on the mountain is captured in the texture of this painting.

So much of life is unknown and yet we rely so heavily on having everything planned out. In late 2020 I decided I was going to embrace trust in 2021 and really apply the quote from Mark Twain “So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.”
