I took some time to 'play' today, and let my imagination guide my process. I am trying to flex my muscles and test out some ideas on small panels, because in just a few weeks, I will begin putting these ideas into action on LARGE canvases for the Artist Project.
I am not quite sure how I got here, but pushing and pulling to paint led me into a very interesting direction.
To keep a long story short, some of you may know my dad passed suddenly in a car accident in 2004; our family cottage was where he was most in his element, where I remember him being his happiest. If his soul would be anywhere, it would be there.
He feels so present in that place even still, that I can imagine him walking through that door at any moment. I imagine one day again, I'll meet him there <3
Clear path forward during some much needed recharge and reflection. I’ve recently learnt that our eyes are in the front of our head so we can’t look back. Gotta push forward, process and address. #stokenation#reflection#northernontario

12 Days of Holiday Love from Holmes Studio
I’ve had an amazing year filled with some of the most inspirational individuals I’ve ever meet. As such, I want to close out the year with some very special and heart felt thank-yous to those who have helped and inspired me!
Start with my biggest inspiration this year
The beautiful and wonderful @parisgoreplz
I knew I wanted to start following my passions this year and work with other artist that have a unique perspective and I was lucky enough to find Paris who invited me into the House of Gore with open arms <3
My personal focus has changed to a more unique style that I have always wanted to pursue and Paris has help make this happen. Don’t ever under estimate the power of collaboration!!
We have so much more to come!! Paris has also inspired me to return to school for my Masters in Human Sexuality while pursuing my photography dreams. Sometimes you find an individual that powers your drive!
William Michael Bolton Armstrong, I can’t thank you enough for the doors you have open for me this year and the continued work we do together! You are a beautiful soul through and through!
Stay tuned to our 2019 projects!!
It’s going to be bigger and better! <3
Please follow Paris Gore and support local

45 minutes of shoveling done! Lol my husband is going to make fun of me when he gets home like usual because I shovel like an old retired man. Oh well. At least it looks better. #shoveling#northernontario
