Your Italy inspired piece is SOOOOOO beautiful! I love what happens when you soak up the magic of another land :)

nicole austin

so beautiful! so breathtaking.


I love what came out of your experience here! I agree I feel so joyous every time I turn a corner and there tucked on a wall or high up on an old building is a piece of art. I love this.


Italy, ah Italy. I just love that there is so much art to see, along with everything else inspiring there. Your new piece is beautiful, the halo the surrounds the body is my favorite part, radiant and glowing. As a painter I am looking at all of those dots and thinking how nicely meditative it must have been to paint!


she's truly beautiful, misty, truly, truly *sigh*

Tammy M

ooooh! Breathtaking!!! All of it! I went to paris with my mom when I was in college, and seeing your Italy reminds me of so much beauty. Your painting made me catch my breath!! I can't wait to be in your class again this year at artfest ( Im so blessed Ive got to take your classes 3 years in a row :o)) Hope you are "living life wildly" this week! :o)

your trip to Italy looks absolutely divine -- mmmmmm -- i am so happy for you, getting to experience this. I hope you are well my friend.



Aside from this piece being just stunning, the way you make the glow is hypnotic! Nicely done.

aj bush

Oh Misty you out did yourself on this piece. It is simply stunning! What an artist.

Pam Holderman

Oh Misty thanks for sharing your adventure. What a beautiful, amazing trip and experience. And I love the new piece... she so captures everything you experienced. I put the Sarah Moon video on my blog today - she just speaks in poetry doesn't she? You gave me a little trip to Italy today - thanks!


Hello Misty,
This is a beautiful piece, just gorgeous! I live in Baltimore and I would love to take a workshop with you sometime. I see that you are in VA, not too far from me. Do you ever come this way to teach? Also, I would love to know when you will be offering another on-line course. Thank you. Patti


When I visited Tuscany several years ago I brought back a pair of amber-colored square glass earrings painted gold on the inside: a way to bring home the special light and spirit of that corner of the world. Your painting multiplies my little squares of ltalian light times a billion, Misty. Emotion-packed, evocative, peace-full, incandescent -- Spirit, ever so beautifully rendered. Brava!


simply divine, in all meanings of that word!
