Beautiful art that resonates in the soul

Contemporary Abstract Painter Paulette Insall's paintings come from her heart....expressing emotion as a visual language, using pure color and expressive marks to connect and communicate. Her abstract art emits a special light and magic that is both spiritual and moving.

On feeling unproductive...

After weeks of unproductive house hunting, I decided it was time do something productive.....so I got my art studio back into a working state and got the custom color palette worked out for my next custom painting. Felt good!

I've got many plans in the works (limited edition prints, clothing, and accessories featuring my art), but with most of my time and energy going into finding a new home for us, I haven't had much left over. I've found it difficult to switch gears between house hunting, family, and art with my energy reserves being so low. So just stick with me....I'm hopeful that we will find a new home soon and I'll be able to get back to art and regular life before too much longer. :)

Much love and hugs y'all!!!!

Much love + blessings,

Art + gratitude

Haven't had time to paint in a couple of weeks....that's what happens when you're getting your house ready to put on the market. The other day, I just had to make some time to throw a little paint on a canvas..so I started a new painting so I wouldn't worry about ruining an almost finished painting.

Yesterday my organizer was here...we got the living room cleaned out somewhat and moved a solid wood bookcase into the garage to open up the room a bit. Also moved a huge IKEA bookcase out of our breakfast nook and sorted through all the stuff that had been inside.

After she left, I hung one of my paintings over this chair in the living room (where the wood bookcase used to be), which is my doggie's favorite spot. She does not like having her picture taken. Lol!  Making progress....still much left to do...

...and I'm so very thankful I convinced my hubby I couldn't possibly do this all by myself (I'm organizationally challenged).

Now I wonder why I didn't hire her sooner! She is a God-send for sure! Feeling confident now that with her help I can have everything cleared out, the house staged, and ready to list on time.

 

Much love + blessings,

New digs + new art

If you haven't visited my site in a while, them you're in for a treat! I've completely redesigned it, so if you're reading this post in your blog reader, get on over to www.pauletteinsall.com and check it out! :)

I've also been hard at work on my new abstract painting series and you can see all my finished pieces in the new online shop www.pauletteinsall.com/shop where you can now purchase paintings directly from my website with a credit card and it's all secure. I'm offering free shipping for a limited time to celebrate the new site, so I encourage you to grab any you love now and not wait.

Below are just a few of the pieces that are still in progress...there are many more, but I'll share them in another post. Lots going on in the studio right now and I'm learning so much about myself through the process....I learn new things each and every day! For instance, I have found that even though when I paint, or do almost anything for that matter, I produce a mess....but I don't function well in a messy space. Now, I don't like to clean ;) but I must in order to keep myself from getting stuck creatively....it's like the mess around me creates a block....which has lead me to trying to keep my house in better order as well. Lots of purging going on here too! Gosh have we accumulated a lot of stuff! Lol! Okay, I'm gonna be quiet now so you can go look at the paintings.... :D
