Paint Until You're Happy

Sometimes I have to force myself to stay in my studio and not talk to anyone. I have to shut out all the things I think I should be doing and paint until I'm happy again. It always works.

I did that yesterday and finished this painting:

"Gemini" by Lacie Myers 2014

The scene is imagined and not based on any fathers or babies in particular (consciously at least). 

Some days I just sit in a comfy chair with a pencil and paper and see what my brain gives me. If a sketch says "paint me," I try to listen. 

Here's the sketch that started it all.

Once again, thanks to Cecile Veilhan for helping me mine the paintings in my brain and helping me see what is possible.

Happy Thursday,



  1. You are so inspiring to me. I love this painting, and congrats on finishing it! That's always a good feeling.

  2. Thanks Kayla. I feel the same way about you. I guess we better both keep at it then.
