Mikel Horton suffered an ankle injury today. Blake bone suffered a hamstring injury and is out.
Sounds like a future meeting with art and wine. Who's in ?!?:)
. I live on the ocean. Your water looks like home to me.
Thanks:) whatever you want to be in the water, is in the water. Art is a sandbox.
Thanks! Over 200 hrs of work on this blue behemoth!

Will you put it on the wall of your urban Chicago record store where you work with jack black?!

Werner Herzog on creativity, self-reliance, and how to make a living from what you love
I actually haven't done any pen and ink in years...I paint in oils now but I do adore pen and ink!
What brand of pen, ink, paper do you use?
From the archives: a pen & ink from many years ago...every piece of art is a lesson, a history.

super interesting perspective. I can see the blur between work and free time - aside from those super frustrating days.

It's challenging in early adulthood. Will be in touch with helpful information.
Heh. Good but sometimes challenging. Taylor earned a 2 year degree at 17 but has been dragging since.
You are both amazing folks. Can't wait to meet you IRL in Sept E! 🦄💫🐝

My son is also 21. How are things going for your child at this age?
Thank you! How old is your child with mild Asperger's?
I like your autism advocacy. My youngin is on the spectrum with mild Aspergers.
Likewise! I love your bio. Makes me laugh. It's nice meeting you, too, via. beautiful .
We shall meet IRL one day, I know it! 💙
I would if I could. The tax man bit deep this year. Just a couple short trips up to BC... :(
Don, are you coming to Heather's art show in Toronto in September? You must.
Some day may get copy of Harry Crews tattoo: skull + "How do you like your blue eyed boy, Mr. Death?"
How "meta" would it be getting the cover of this inked?
Heather is my tattoo muse.H, didn't you suggest my maple leaf+buffalo first time we met IRL?
Don has some awesome tattoos. He's a fabulous person and friend, as are you E!
I love it! Please let us know what you decide.this is fun!
Perhaps something incorporating an image of a book? I know how much you cherish them...
Other. What else do you have in mind? has great ideas!
Thank you! I'm wishing you the same. It's fun getting an insider's view of your studio & creative brilliance. xox

Thank-you E!! I have to turn this painting on its side it’s so big! Have a wonderful and energy-filled weekend! x
Thank-you my friend. I do my best :) So glad you enjoy them...hope you're well! x
gorgeous, Heather! Your paintings are uplifting. Love the poems you post and your creative thoughts. xox
Thank-you so much Ed...means a lot to hear.hope you're having a beautiful week and sleep well...
.Unbelievable work Heather. The emotions your work captures literally brings tears to my eyes.
Thank-you! I like to think it is a bit of both. Working on a much larger one similar...72"x48" 😳
Beatiful, great light. Can't decide whether it's sad or pensive, perhaps both.
I agree. That is counterintuitive and protracts creative development.
I want to paint those beautiful shoes!
Illusion and reality are frequent bedfellows..just varnished "The Revanant",oil, 72"x36", avail at
So excited for this weekend. Get to see all my favorite people. Boss, Kallie, & Heather 😍😍
Awesome! Congratulations to your folks!...that's really something to celebrate!
Has Heather W. found their perfect in East Horton Gol...?
Thank you, . I very much appreciate article.
Please know that as a painter your work has greatly impacted my art..thank-you..
love that. Really full of meaning x
Frankly, you deserve better than this
That's awesome! Not sure "love" is the word I would choose... but maybe something to strive for 😉
Thanks again, every worthwhile painting should be a bit of a paradox I think!
Oh yes F it!!! And this piece is telling a story and hiding a story all at one time
Thanks B! It's quite a moody piece. Never posted it before cause it's pretty atypical but eff it, you know? ;)
thanks my friend. Lots of fires going, that's for sure! Looking forward to your email. Glad you're buoyant/energized!
Oh I love this so much...I can hear the rustle of the leaves on the ground from a gentle breeze just looking at it
happy, grateful. I've got my energy back for now. I'll be in touch. You've got great things going on! I'm happy for you. xox
Thanks Elizabeth! Been wondering how you are:) Hugs and sunny skies your way today! 🙌🌻🌤
Thank-you and it was a pleasure! Must paint another like it some day...
Trying to decide if it’s a place I would love to go or if I’d be terrified to go. Probably both. :)
"And many miles to go before I sleep..." The experimental forest piece, oil on canvas.
Wow, this is fantastic. If this were in my house, I’d never get anything done because I’d just be staring at it all day.
That's so wonderful, thank you for painting it

. The only other sound's the sweep. Of easy wind and downy flake.
that's a little piece of the Universe there...I absolutely love it!
"The woods are lovely, dark & deep, but I have promises to keep..". Untitled, experimental piece. Oil on canvas.
very much so, he struggled his entire life. A great soul!
Lots of good artists don't. Shame really.
just stunning. Makes me want to run for my paintbrushes.
Painting, like most life, depends on light to survive, illuminating form selectively. "Gayle(Home),oil,36"x48".
Wishing you all a beautiful evening!
That's SO cool I just love your work!
That would be amazing Heather. I know there will be a rush to buy it! :)
Precisely.My father was very self-destructive. He threw knives & read of zen. The opposite of The Golden Mean. All the excess.
I can see that.two opposing emotions existing at the same time and the same place.
Thanks B. It's a double portrait of sorts: love and hate.
And now by one girl with a small, grey cat :)
I think I'll paint a little swimming piece similar to this for the 2016
PerfectMatch - Fall In Love Today
Oh he was quite haunted. It was one of the ways he coped with stress...
The ghost part. Throwing of knives to get rid of them.
What do you mean? He put the piece of wood on the back of the closet and started throwing. The roses were given to me:)
Is that an established thing... Or his own idea?
New painting! "Studio door",10"x8",oil. Father threw knives at this door. An exercise to exorcise his ghosts.
Here it is! Photo was from awhile back..I liked the in progress shot:)
Beautiful Brenda. Love the waves of distortion :)
Thank-you! Thankfully we like one another a lot, which makes for easy travel;)
. Fantastic! You're both looking great! I'm happy you're arrived at your new home.
Paint allows artists to distort life through their lens; to warp yet maintain a thing's essence.
We have arrived!! He's my hero:) Thanks for following along on the journey!
Hi, gorgeous Heather! Do you & have an approximate arrival date yet?
Thank-you so much Elizabeth...you made my morning! Wishing you s beautiful day!!
Your painting is beautiful, Heather. I'm happy you followed your talent and passion. You are a very gifted artist. xox

Let me know what you think...glad you have your aunt Sadie with you still...🌸
I will check out the album..,thank you!
thank you, no this is another Aunt, my Auntie Betty. But now Aunt Sadie is my last surviving aunt on my moms side.
An article with more about the album. He’s a genius IMO. Again, my deepest condolences to you..
I'm am so sorry..your aunt you've spoken of? This album is helping me process. Maybe you too? It's called "Carrie & Lowell"
Yes, like that..you should listen to the whole album. It guts me. Will paint next two portraits to it..
Thanks Brenda. This song is from his latest album about losing his mum. I lost my dad 9 months ago. Very poignant.
Sufjan’s music is like a spiderweb detached from its anchor points: beautiful & delicate..
Haunting. I lost my dad 9 months ago so it really hits home.
White has the most colours..I do paint snowy mountains and I’m rarely sleepy :)
reviews make it sound like a perfect beer to enjoy by the swimming pool. Cheers, Heather!
1st day back in Ontario from 1.5 yrs in Yukon & I find my in an LCBO!

The painting that made me want to be a full-time painter. From school, 13 yrs ago. Oil.
Great beer! That'll make you sleep well. Welcome back to the Eastern Time Zone and cheers!
Sasha, you probably won't sleep suffering from Yukon-time warp. Sneak some of your Mums beer to help sleep!

Thank-you my friend. I'm looking forward to both soon...
Beautiful! I'm wishing you much time and peace.

Your photos are always so deliciously...precipitous 🍻😉

You're loved & You have Sasha. My father used to say: "Travel & Learn". I did😊
You all really know how to make this gal driving 6k km solo feel loved! Well,I have
Thank-you Elizabeth:) I paint what I experience..glad it has impacted you! 🌷 happy day lovelies!
Artists require two essential things for creative fulfillment: time & peace.

Thank-you so much!! High praise being grouped with him :):)
Yes, totally!! Love his photos, his spirit, his artistry. Fascinating man. Love your work, too! Talent +
The Exorcist is the only horror movie I've ever seen. Scared me so much!! I'd rather surf with sharks.
Amazing. Iconic! And photos and artistic body of work are very inspiring aren’t they?
They were super scary!! My friends would tease me about walking past 'those steps.' They totally creeped me out!
yes! Of all things...in college, I lived several blocks from those steps in Georgetown (Washington, DC USA).
thank-you so much for doing that! And thanks for your words...I love what I do and am glad it resonates with you:)
I use google translator, and not too efficient, but your work is obviously worth a lot ...
Herzog is amazing! I want to have tea with him. His curiosity about the human condition is infectious.
I wish I could understand what you wrote...but it seems complimentary:)
Your art is a canary in a coal mine: a fluttering sentinel who measures our dance with madness.
Praying for these people, such a sad situation. ( Heather Golden Horton )

very true. Flattery hasn't got me followed by the great Heather Horton, though. Sad face.
Thanks Don for an amazing last night:) We had a fab time. Thanks to Adam too!
Flattery will get you everywhere ;) Don't underestimate the power of a well-wielded crayon!
you always make me feel like I'm a 1st grader, drawing with crayons. I'm a bit jealous for sure. ;)
You too. Great choices and whatever course it is there are many treasures to be found therein:) Enjoy:)
You have excellent taste in literature:)
