Life is full... as they say, and I have been away from my blog for quite some time.

This quote is quite fitting...

Sometimes you just need to go off the grid

and get your soul right.

I need to get back in the groove.  So I will just need to back track a bit to catch you all up.  This post is a recap of a collaborative exhibition I did with a friend of mine.  Her name is Ellen Newbauer and she is a

magnificent Wood Artisan.  When Ellen and I first met, we had a very genuine and immediate connection.

Me telling her all about my work and vice versa.  Her passion for her masterful craft was inspiring and infectious and I knew right then, listening to her, that I wanted to work with her some how some way.  At the time... I was deep into experimenting and creating with alcohol ink.  So after a brie...

All I can say is "It has been just plain WONDERFUL!".  I am so very lucky to be a part of a community that supports local artists.  Over the past 8 months, I have made it a point of getting to know many local art enthusiasts like myself throughout our community.  By working with them, I have been able to feature my

art in their local galleries.  It has been a very busy, but very exciting time.  Back in April, I decided to take

a leap of faith and I launched my heART into the world of Art Exhibitions.  I was able to paint enough art for

not one, not two, but three Solo Art Exhibitions.  I had the honor of doing my very first show at a local downtown Art Gallery and Book Store called "City Center Gallery and Books". The owners, Dr. Hank and Diane Parfitt were just incredible and they helped me launch my art into the community.  The theme for this first exhibition was "Intentional Marks" and I am truly thankful for all that attended the exhibition...

It's really about complimenting an individuals "Interior Space" that makes wall art compelling and desirable.  If you think about it... what you hang on your walls carries a significant amount of importance in helping to complete an interior space design and decor.  Art choices establish personal style and give any space a finishing touch.  

 

I have recently spent time looking at the pieces of my heART in their new forever homes and it's actually very exciting as an artist to see my work loved and cherished by so many.  I am grateful everyday that I have pursued my incredible love of paint to this magnitude and I am finally dreaming about what I want to explore next as the possibilities are simply endless.

 

I wanted to share with you several of the spaces and interior designs that I have been fortunate to be a part of.  The first three frames are a beautiful set of photographs posted by an wonderful Boutique Event and Tablescape De...

Happy New Year everyone!  I'm so excited to get into this New Year with so many wonderful ideas swirling around in my head.  Painting over this past year has been such a blessing and an adventure for me.  As I look around, inspiration is everywhere... and painting is truly a piece of my heART.

This past year I took a leap of faith.  There were many days filled with insecurity, but there were many more that felt positive and certain.  After multiple requests, I decided to sell my art.  It has been very personal, but each new day is a challenge, and for that I am very thankful.   

Some of the year's highlights include creating custom work, having my art displayed on the walls of friends homes and businesses, appearing in another's Blog, and having my work hung in Designer Interiors.

I get so excited every time someone places an order, and I’m incredibly lucky, as I will be partnering

with some amazing busine...

Well after my last Blog post, I've decided to write a bit more about my recent feature on 55 Design Street Blog.  Basically, Blog for Blog... It's a great way to get your name and work out there.  Yes, I am an avid Blog reader.  Let's just say... I am actually obsessed with researching what others are doing and writing about.  There are just "Gazillions" to choose from and you really can learn so much by reading. There are so many creative and inspiring people out there.  I love it!  

 

So, as I had mentioned last post, I recently had a lovely Blogger and Designer from New South Wales, Australia send me a note that she was going to use a couple pieces of my art on her design boards and then post them on her Blog.  And yes... it is a total coincidence that my new son in-law is from NSW, Australia... how exciting is that!  Her name is Mirela and she had been following my instagram @stephaniebostockart  Oh - how I love that Instagram....

Well friends… after all this “New Studio” excitement this past few days have been a bit rough for me on a very personal level. I had a follow up since my surgery and treatment this past year.  Turns out my marker numbers have stopped dropping and have decided to take a turn in the wrong direction. It was news I didn’t care for… but a minor bump in the road.  I will prepare myself for more treatment.  Every time I get knocked down... I have to get back up.  I'm good… just really disappointed that I need a booster to get me to my goal.  The thought of putting more (in Greek we call it “Caca”) in my body is really difficult.  Who in their right mind puts that %#!& in their body!  I mean… I drink it through a straw like a “Bleeping” Soda!  The downtick, I am literally radioactive for a week and I have to chill in isolation for a few days.  I haven’t been able to do much the past couple days... but today I will try really hard to do better.

I thought it might be fun to let you all take a peek into my very new and very inspiring Art Studio.  So put your aprons on and check it out!  All of this happened really fast and furiously.  Getting out of my kitchen and choosing my new location was really quite an epiphany.  I've been using my creativity, my right brain, and God given talent, for a very long time in many different capacities.  It really was a combination of things that were happening in my life and I had to get a grip and focus on something before I basically fell off the deep end.

 

My family has always been an inspiration to me.  Over the years I've done so much for so many in so many ways, using my creative side.... but for me... not so much.  So this started as a way for me to meditate. It was a distraction and a way to clear my mind.  You know, an "Art Yoga" so to speak.  A way to express myself.

 

I was basically working in the kitchen.  They say the kitchen is the heart...

So this morning I woke up... and of course I can't drink my coffee until i've taken my medicine.  Then I have to wait an hour.  So... to pass that time I go to yoga class.  It's a good class, and I really stretch, but it's not quite enough today.  I really want to just let it all out on the canvas.  I don't have the concentration to work on something that's structured.  I choose a large 36x48 canvas so I am not confined.  My intuitive brush stokes palette knife have rapid movement, like a Ouija board, i'm gliding around the canvas with ease.  It's working... it's theraputic and my meditation.  The result... well see for yourself.

 

The sun is shining here in North Carolina.  It's a beautiful day.  Enjoy it...

It's basically about my true love for paint that gets me really excited about sharing what I am currently doing.  It has been a really long time since I have actually sat still long enough to paint a picture... And now that I have started painting again... I can't stop!

 

My story on getting back into the swing of using my right brain is pretty straight forward.  This past year was a real eye opener for me.  Back in July of 2014, I learned that I had Stage IV Cancer.  The road I have traveled has given me a whole new outlook on life.  It has been one of my most difficult life encounters and I am and I continue to be... a "Cancer Survivor".

 

Let's just say... I am definitely looking at life from a whole new perspective.  I'm living... and I am finally doing what I truly love and I'm enjoying every second of it.  Each new day is my inspiration... and so I will just paint to my hearts content... and then, I'll paint some more.

 

Have a great day...

Steph
