Painting with babies... never goes as planned. I got the high chair, puffy snacks and toys ready but this little one has a cold and had different plans. I still managed to get a base layer down but there were a lot of tears, hugs and kisses involved. We paint, we hug, we paint again.
Some new things are about to happen in 2020. Finally got to some painting tonight. First time in the new home! I know it's taken me a while. I found these thin slate pieces at a local antique store score! It seems to have it's own texture and movement like the wood. Just doesn't absorb the paint the same. ... Should be fun.
Big news coming your way soon. I'm starting to hear back from some at shows for this year! 👍
I figured it’s time to have a new “Glow-Up” profile picture...
❤️ Imperfect beginnings...
I find the first layers of watercolor can be the most interesting.
All these little details start filling my head almost instinctively and it’s all I can think about until they’re on the paper.
One of my favorite parts of the process. ❤️

Time flies! These are some of the earliest paintings I remember making. They’re from around 20 years ago 😳
Thank you to each and everyone who has been there along the way, helping me grow my small business 🌿
I have the best clients!
New day 1

Coffeeeee!!! It's Saturday friend- and I'm spending today at swim lessons, getting my hair cut, drinking lots of coffee and attending a hand lettering class with @hmckinney! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Get out there and enjoy the day!
I hate Flu season. My baby boy went to the hospital with muscle spasms due to being sick. He’s all better now, but while there he asked if I could draw him something we had watched together recently.
Sure thing buddy <3

Day 23 --“Love is: Motherhood” 6x6, $185 (comment “sold” to purchase)
(Since I don’t paint on Sundays, you get tomorrow’s painting a day early 🤗🤗) One of my favorite parts of being a mother is teaching my kids things. They ask a question and I get so excited to tell them everything I know and help them understand all the complexities of what they asked. They often ask, "How did we end up talking about this?" and then we trace our conversation back through multiple layers until we find the original question. They are some of my favorite people to be with and we have such a great time figuring things out together. Also, I like kissing their deliciously supple cheeks. .
In February, I’m challenging myself to do a painting EVERY DAY!! The paintings will explore the theme of love stories- romantic love, parental love, self-love, love for nature, etc. As some of my favorite artists said, “in the end the love you give is equal to the love you make.” Therefore, I will always be on a quest to fill the world with as much love as I can. You’ll be able to see all the paintings at #lovestoriesstephhock.
Here’s how it will work: every painting will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Because they will each go to the first person to comment “sold,” you’ll want to turn on your push notifications so you can be notified each time I post a new painting! They’ll all be 6x6 inches and cost $185 each (plus tax and shipping.) Once a painting is claimed, you’ll see “🔴 SOLD” at the beginning of the caption (you can always claim second or third place in line in case the first sale doesn’t work out). Happy month of LOVE! ❤️
This is one of those wonderful, tranquil moments when both kids are sleeping so I thought I would do a quick intro post 🙂. I’m Elise - the mom and these are my two babies 👶🏽 👶🏽 E-baby and J-baby (and E-baby’s favorite bunny who’s ear he likes to sniff...). E-baby is almost 16 months old and J-baby is 6 weeks old. This account is for comics about our life together (their dad Jeff is not pictured, but he is a HUGE help)! 🙂
Say hello to Blue Planet
She’s been printed on some really nice A5, A4 & A3 paper. She’s a series of 100. And she’d look awesome in your home!
The prints will be available on my online store soon.

𝐌𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐲!
Tell you what I discover in the last year about how the world works now!💥💥💥
There are many new ways of making business👏
Ways I had never imagine before👏
Doesn’t mean necessarily new companies or products, also means, amazing companies doing things differently!💥💥💥
So if, the big companies, the big entrepreneurs, are doing things differently because they see the new paths.....
𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐝𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬???🤔🤔🤔
I was doing that!!i was trying to make it work and keep up!
Trying to be successful with old tools playing in a field of new competitors with much more advanced tools and tricks than mines🤦♀️🤦♀️
As you imagine this was bit of disaster, kept me small, brought tears and frustration, over worker, hiker exhausted, ready to give up and call it Is can never make it work!’😔
If I tell you the truth now, I was done done!ready to cry at any minute till I finally realized, if I wanted things having different results I needed to do things differently!💥
This is a reminder for YOU too, you will find a way or not, but consider....Things are changing and they are going FAST!, faster than we imagine....it is like trains leaving the station, so make sure you catch the right one!!
