Down Town Mystic untitled. Oil on panel. 24x36” this one is on the easel today. Working on shapes painterly effects... subtle colors... give way to more pure color marks. Working back a forth with the light and shadows. Sometimes I feel my mind is like a computer analyzing every singe Mark I make on the panel... where it goes, what color, angles, placement, and on and on ... than some results... a work in progress 😄 . . #fineart #paintingoftheday #paintingprocess #paintingoil #contemporaryart #instagood #mystic #mysticct #mysticliving #stoningtonct #townscape #smalltown #oilpainter #contemporyartcollectors ...

⭐️It’s #winewednesday again, and with the weather finally warming up, I thought it would be fitting to talk about one of my favorite summer wines called Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie. 🥂
.
.
Yes I know that is quite a mouthful, so allow me to break it down for you. This wine comes from the Loire Valley with a cool maritime climate dominated by the Atlantic Ocean. Muscadet is the area in the Loire valley where the grape melon de Bourgogne is grown and used to make this wine. .
.
These wines are fairly heavy bodied, mineral driven and have clean green apple and citrus with a touch of bready notes. The mouth feel is fairly creamy with just enough acidity to keep it balanced. .
.
Wine pairing🥂: OYSTERS for sure! Or any other light seafood dish. I’m also fond of sipping this on the back porch by itself. .
.
Now that you know a little bit about this wine, what would you pair with it?

Another image of the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds at our back patio. So cool when they suddenly come over and hover 5 ft in front of us, checking us out before darting off.

First Friday Introductions for Lorna Made Me Blush Artistry! ⬇️⁠
.
.
Here I am! My little corner of the beauty world! I am so excited to introduce myself! 👋🏻⁠
.
.

Professionally, I am a licensed esthetician, wholistic skincare pro, green beauty makeup artist and i-brow connoisseur! ⁠

My name is Lorna Pulver and I’ve been married to my husband for 32 years! (Half of those years he was on the high seas serving with the US Coast Guard, so really, we’ve only been together 16 years, so we are practically newlyweds!) We have two grown sons + an amazing daughter-in-law + two beautiful grand babies who bless us everyday with their giggles + hugs. ⁠

My introduction into green beauty began when I started noticing skincare companies describing their products as “botanically based” or having “natural ingredients” but the ingredients on the label didn’t add up! For 20 years now I have researched labels of skincare lines and have repeatedly been drawn to the healing benefits of herbs, minerals and cold pressed oils. I love products that can connect us back to nature to heal ourselves on multiple levels ~ physically, energetically and spiritually! ⁠

As a makeup artist, I love working with new brides and helping them feel their most beautiful on a day they will never forget. I bring a calming light energy on an otherwise very busy day. Carrying a green beauty kit is meaningful and important to me and the confidence I have in these products brings an added excitement to like-minded brides. Sustainability, cruelty-free, vegan, and eco friendly brands matter and have been selected with intention and thought. ⁠

Brow artistry is an added obsession of mine. My sister claims that it’s because my Sun sign is Aries and the “Ram” symbolizes beauty ~ specifically of the head and BROW! Clearly this resonates with me! ⁠

Lorna Made Me Blush Artistry began as a cute name that has manifested into a sweet little studio. I am so excited to see where my new small business takes me, but mostly I just want to put a smile on each and every souls face that I have the pleasure of meeting. 🙏⁠
Lorna⁠
