New painting! The print is available right here.

Things are changing around here. It’s all I can think about. It feels like we’re coming out of hibernation – a long one that has a bit to do with the weather, a bit to do with lifestyle, and a bit to do with perspective.

It rains a lot in Portland. Like, a lot, especially from Nov – Mar. When it’s not raining, it’s cloudy and we can go weeks without seeing the sun. So when the sun does finally appear after a couple of long months without it, it just feels radically joyful, like your mood is skipping and bursting with aliveness.

And then you realize just how much you’ve been affected by the lack of that sunshine. Sometimes Jan and Feb feel like one long day that you are dragging yourself through. Of course, it’s totally worth the trade off of living in a city like Portland, though. We love it here.
So anyway, the arrival of a bit more sunshine around here has collided with the arrival of completely new life now that I leave the house and work somewhere else. I know I keep talking about it, but man, this has seriously changed my entire life. I am out and about, going to the cafe in the morning, walking here and there, breathing, commuting, and generally out in the world. It. Is. Awesome.
I have so much to tell you. But for now, I just want to say Hello, Spring. Hello, Sunshine. Hello, Aliveness.
Back very soon.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
