I am having so much fun creating vibrant, expressive and organic flower drawings/paintings. These drawings are created on large paper ( usually about 25 X 19 inches) and I use a variety of mediums such as oil pastels, crayons, color pencils, pens, and acrylic paint.
The art below emerged intuitively as a form of meditation. The writing was also written intuitively and spontaneously on a inspired weekend afternoon.
I am always searching……….Searching for what I am not sure of yet. When I close my eyes I see this amazing light. A light that is so bright and beautiful. A light that glistens like the sun but doesn’t hurt my eyes. This light sparkles with movements of colorful rays that appear to emerge as if from a healing crystal. This light seems to have an overlay of rose pink and sends healing energy to me.
This healing prism of beautiful light that dances in my mind radiates warmth and love.
I have been following Anika Starmer's art for about a year and a half now and let me just say that her art and patterns are absolutely beautiful. I can't tell you how many times I have been blown away by her amazing talent. She is an extremely talented artist and the way she approaches color is simply breathtaking. In addition her patterns make my heart skip a beat with joy. I really think her patterns need to be on fabrics or products because her art just makes me so happy.

Just finished this painting today. Honestly there is something so wonderful about painting flowers. The colors and the energy are happy and I like being happy!!! I also love that I can express my flower paintings in my own way without being too concerned about realism.
My family and I just came back from a much needed vacation. My husband and my son went to Jamaica for 2 weeks ( My husband is Jamaican) and they got to enjoy their time with family. My daughter and I flew to NJ and visited my sister and my husband's parents. We then drove to Virginia Beach and stayed with my best friend for a week. We were supposed to drive down to Florida and spend time with my dad and step mother but plans changed and we just stayed in Virginia Beach. Being back in the Hampton roads was a wonderful time and it reminded me so much of living in the area when I was in the Navy and attending college (ODU).
It really was an awesome time and very relaxing. Too bad I didn't take many pictures. This happens to me a lot. I say I am going to take lots of pics and I am always so busy being in the moment that I forget to take pictures. Well at least I have my memory of the trip.
Welcome to the Let's Talk section of my website. This will be the section where interviews, discussions, and sharing will take place. We can think of this place as a private cafe on the moon.
