There is nothing so sweet as a messy faced child. Whether it's mud, paint, or orange marmalade, a messy faced child is child at play in the world, and to me that is the job of a child. Let them worry about jam on their face when they are adults. I tell my students that they have evidence on their face, evidence of fun times. *Closeup detail, portrait watercolor on cotton paper. #itsjustmud #willowheathportraits #willowswatercolors #watercolorportrait #youvegotsomethingonyourface #blueeyes #womenartists #knowmyname

I am often asked if I am finding the time to create my own art in the midst of instructing art courses, private lessons, commissions, and well...life. My answer is yes, each and every painting I create, whether it is an eye demonstration, a portrait commission, or a watercolor landscape is a creative expression of self. I love it all. I don't feel depleted of creativity because it is my career. I feel full. I also don't feel each piece of art needs to be a statement of who the artist is. Art for the sake of the experience is still art. A painting can simply be a moment in time, an exploration, a meditation. Perhaps it does illustrate who I am, that I do take great joy in even the smallest classroom art demonstration, that even a color chart brings me joy. #youdoyou #makemagiceveryday #willowswatercolors #willowsartclass #eyeseeyou #watercoloreye #watercolor #optical #artist #anothereyepainting #happylittleeyes #happyartist at Life on Mars Seattle

It’s pretty cool to work so close to the Space Needle...now if I could just avoid the tourists on my way out! 😜I’m directing The Merry Wives of Windsor production intensive with grade 6-10 students with @ssceducation —set in the 1980’s! It’s a blast. . . . . #seattleteachingartist #actress #seathtr #actorslife #actormom #workingmom #actorforhire #theatreartist #pnw #seattlecenter #ssceducation #spaceneedle #seattlespaceneedle #bluesky💙 #performingarts #actingcoach #actingteacher #shakespeare #seattlesummer #beachywaves #messyhairdontcare💁🏻 #seattlegirl at Seattle Center - Space Needle

Look at this pretty girl! Painting more pretty pets and feeling fabulous that my second pet portrait class has sold out again. I currently have no pets but I grew up with a whole mess of dogs in our Alaskan sled dog team, and a few fierce kitty cats, not to mention I rescued every bird, squirrel, chipmunk, pillbug, goldfish, or iguana that crossed my path and needed a mom. Ok full disclosure I still do this, in the last few years I've rescued a baby seagull, a baby crow, a baby squirrel, a baby mouse, and well the list goes on. #furbaby #petportraits #watercolor #willowsartclass #willowswatercolors #art #illustratorsoninstagram #willowspetportait at Gage Academy of Art
