Love and Positive Vibes,
It is pouring rain outside and has been all night long (ps: I love the rain☔️), in the mountains just to the east of me it is snowing and I can see the snow piling up on them outside my studio window. Made some scones for breakfast for my crew, read my scriptures and got some journal writing in and squeezing in a bit of painting before getting ready for church. A perfect Sunday morning. Do you have any plans for this lovely Sunday?.
• two years ago, i was dropping off all these beauties for a @myflickerbox collab! isn't it incredible how much can change in a fairly short amounting time?
i don't think i'll ever have the right words to tell all of you how thankful i am that you've made this all possible, but i hope y'all know that. and i can't wait to see and share all the amazing things that are going to happen in the next few years! 🔮
Having fun on my birthday weekend by eating the scrummiest lunch, having as giant sparkler birthday cake and seeing friends and family. Heart so full and happy right now!
Hope you're having a lush weekend art friends! 🎉
Trying something different. That's what I love about being an artist, I can try out whatever I want! This here is just the background for something less abstract than my other paintings. I'm really excited if everything works out the way I already have it on my mind.
Thanks @cassiacogger for this shot of me in action yesterday. Side note: it feels a bit weird to sit and think about your next brushstroke when people are watching 😜. But it was good for me to push through it.
Working on a New Series- Honoring Primitive, Wild, Ancient, Animalistic, Dark, Light, Shamanic Point of Views within my paintings.
Many ancient techniques to understand the unseen subconscious energy that moves around is to study and understand our animal guides. They help us invoke things to reach our highest potential, but also to enlighten us to personality parts that are undeveloped or where our ego has expanded a lil- TOOOOO much. These animals for me acknowledge our qualities are DARK & LIGHT- we can only become enlightened when we know both. The balance between. Let's get wild and honor it.
Open Studio Day to paint all the colors of the wind this Tuesday at my studio- Olly Olly Fairfax- to work on this series. #WILD#MOMLIFE#PRIMITIVISM
My new website is live! 🎉 I just put the finishing touches to it and figured now is as good a time as any to hit that publish button. It's been offline for longer than I expected, but I found myself not really sure about the aesthetic direction I wanted to take since my work itself is going into a different direction. ↗ I don't have any new work yet though so I couldn't use that as a guideline. But I'm very happy with the result now and looking forward to seeing it transform as I make new work and add new photographs.
The biggest change on the website is the studio page to inform that I'm now offering brand and web design. 🤗 I've been doing this "unofficially" for a while now but from now on everybody is welcome to contact me for logo, brand and web design and other design and illustration projects!
If you visit the website, let me know what you think!
Exciting news...I have added art prints to my online shop! These prints are reproductions of my original watercolor paintings, printed on cotton rag paper with high quality pigments. Each print is available in two sizes, but additional options are available upon request. Check then out, link in profile 👆🏼
"Hey there! It's been awhile since I introduced myself to all my new followers. I’m Miriam, a watercolor and mixed media 👨🎤 artist and founder of The Inspiration Place. I teach people (just like you) how to reconnect with their creativity! Whether painting is an old hobby you’re diving back into, or if this is your first time picking up a paintbrush, I’m here to help you LET GO while learning the techniques to create your own expressive beauty!
I remember in the fourth grade my teacher 👨🏫 said I was “a good artist” and I believed her so I have been calling myself an artist ever since.
Since my father passed away when I was only five years old, I grew up in a single parent household but my mother was a dancer 💃 who believed in the importance of creativity and the arts. 🎶So my sister and I were always exposed to ballet, museums and theatre 🃏and grew up with that being an important part of our lives as well as a sanctuary from growing up fatherless.
Although I initially pursued a career in finance on Wall Street 🏢🌆 (many famous artists like Gauguin, were once stock brokers) I left the glamour and paycheck of my Wall Street job behind after the birth of my second child. 🙇This maternity leave from finance became permanent after witnessing the devastation of 911 which I took as a sign ⚠ from the universe to do something else with my life.
Returning to art🎨 was the most logical choice.
My husband and I are very grateful for our life in the suburbs 🏠 of New York. 🗽 He runs his own business too (as a real estate developer building affordable housing in the Bronx.🏬 ) And while life can be challenging running our own businesses, it's the best decision we've ever made! We have two beautiful teenage children 👩👦 who continuously delight and surprise us with their passions. 🎻We like to think that our children look to us as examples for living life with whole heartedness.💜💛💚💙 Whether you are here to build your art collection, take classes with me or simply to enjoy the eye candy I share during the day, thank you 🙏for taking the time to follow me on instagram!! 💜💜💜Xo Miriam"

I finally finished another sketchbook, y'all. The past couple of weeks I haven't gotten much arting in because of teaching and grading and planning 😳. But this weekend, I've had an urge to make and nothing can stop me! Today's goal: finish an oil painting I've been putting off for easily two years. -- #cassymaryart
steps i have to go through to get past artist's block:
1. think and overthink and sulk for about two weeks
2. lament and complain with ben and any friend willing to listen
3. look through piles of old work to rediscover old starts that i never finished
4. block off a chunk of time to sit down with coffee in front of a piece of paper
5. forget everything and just start drawing
(i am currently on step 3)
