I am here and still popping by! I've missed you and your beautiful work, so it's good to see you back :-)
I think the virtual world brings a myriad blessings, but also it's own 'problems', so I totally admire you for taking the time you need away from it all. I also love the last quote you shared. I hope one day to be in a place where I find my uncertain future inspiring, rather than frightening.
I'm just making sure I've got the funds in place to take your Open Studio class!! I need some Misty love! (Your absence made me really need your classes!! Could be an alternative marketing plan for you :))

I checked every day for a new post and finally, today, I was rewarded. Thanks for the update. I really miss your frequent postings (no pressure, no pressure). Have a great day, Misty!

Dearest Misty....we can't wait to have you back in Italy with us! Your week was truly one of the most enchanted ever. No one wanted to leave the bird's eye studio, the soft embrace of gentle Orvieto, or you! We know this fall it will be even more amazing. Anticipating a magical adventure.

Judy Wise

Fabulous post; I feel you near. Thank you for the Billy poem; a new one to me. Love and more love.


you couldn't get rid of me if you tried.....of course i'm always here waiting for you to share you with the world.....xo


You're back! So exciting! Made my day. :)

Even though I've been seeing you in Open Studio it was great to see this beautiful post. Love the poem, music, and most of all the art.


So happy to see you here again. I'm reading The Hunger Games with my son too. I love it. Wish you could come be to see my 22 rose bushes. They are covered with buds and will be blooming very soon. The most amazing scent fills our home and our yard. Thanks for the kimchi recipes (have been wanting to try), the music, for everything.

I am new to your blog. I'm not sure where I found you, but am so glad I did! Your artwork is simply amazing and inspirational. I enjoyed learning a little more about you. Blessings.

welcome home Misty...it's ok to take a break now and again, we are still here, peeking in, sometimes putting distance and time between your true, day in, day out life and the one you share on your blog...people who really admire what you create, understand how important your kids and family are and (they are growing like weeds) we are still gonna be here. I remember many posts back when they were just wee ones and your thoughts as each one began school...life goes on and on and a break once in awhile from the crazy 'have it now, do it now, split yourself in a million tiny shard just to keep up the pace...nah...kick back, paint, enjoy those 'getting bigger' kids of yours and keep your home fires burning...we know you will share when you can...we understand...your new art is awesome too!!!!!! Must check out your new music picks!


Good morning, I follow you around surely you have seen me out of the corner of your eye. usally I come to see in instagram and try to get centered back to my own thoughts about some art work, it is a study about being more free losing that upstight perfectionistic thing that can creep in all the time. The element of surprise for viewers seems important.
REading the peom, thinking of how days one can love everything, even the design of the coffee spills on the floor, then again that gets lost in the thoughts of daily pickup and tidy up. Sometimes the daily can really mess up the process, late at night it can all come back, me and the romping cats seem to find that a good time.
Ok I am writing a letter, I do that go off on something for a bit.
We have cliffs like youphoto around the St. Croix valley, you reminded me of what is just down the road. Thank you

that beautiful feather reminds me of the 'peacock lady', that i took home with me and hangs proudly in my dining room. xox



Really delighted you are back. Much Love Karenxx

Oh, I am here!! :) I stopped by while you were away from blogging to see if you'd resurfaced and today was such a pleasant surprise! Yay, Misty's back online blogging. Gorgeous photos of nature, your son's dirty muddy hands are the best, I think. <3 And, on my goodness how I swooned over your new work... lovely!!! xoxo Happy Spring!!

Kathleen Botsford

Glad to see you back Misty but I so understand about the time thing. You young moms amaze the heck out of me with your energy and drive. Love you and miss you!

Yay - so great to see you back here! I know you've been so busy, but I check back here once a week or so, just in case :-)

Love your latest paintings that you posted here. It's fun to see you explore new color palettes - though I'll always be the biggest fan of our cool-toned monochrome girls <3

Ah... The Book Thief - one of my top 5 all time favorite novels.


Oh Misty, sooo sooo happy to see you posting here again...I did keep checking :-) I've missed your "voice", seeing the world through your eyes and art. Love love the new art you are creating...and the new journals are sooo lovely!
I've been busy too, working on assignments from your super awesome online class earlier this year. It will take me a lifetime to explore all the art instruction you gave us! But that's ok...I can handle that :-)

Hugs to you, Misty!

Elizabeth Ann

Best to you!
