I took myself on an inspiration date today. I went to @atlbotanical and went "ooohhh" and "aaahhh" at all of the incredible gifts that nature has to offer us. I explored many parts of the garden that I didn't even know existed and saw plants I didn't know existed and saw insane art/plant sculptures/installations like a dragon and phoenix and mermaid and camels covered in all kinds of plants. 🐲🐪🌿
I don't even know what to call it all, but the air was crisp, and the sun was shining, and my soul is filled. How lucky are we to experience new things each day?! Life is beautiful. You are beautiful. If you had a rough day like a couple of my friends did, peep my stories to see what I saw today. I hope it lifts your spirits! 😘💖✨
Big time throwback! Made this one 2 years ago. How I wish I had the studio space to paint more this big. Soon. 💪 I’ve always liked working on large canvas’s. More ideas usually come to mind while I’m working, so it’s always best to have the extra room to paint them. That’s definitely a good way to look at it if you’re somebody that’s intimidated by working large.
Via @gohypetravel “Last night was pretty scary for us, I don’t know whether you’ve seen the news or watched my stories but there’s was a pretty big earthquake out off the coast of Honduras which put Belize under the threat of a tsunami. ◦•◦•◦•◦•◦• I was led in bed when I felt the earthquake but thought it was @frecklesandcompass being restless on the top bunk 🙈 we then heard a lot of commotion outside and a siren started playing across the island. ◦•◦•◦•◦•◦• The officials warned everyone to get to high ground so we went to the top floor of the hotel next door and waited it out. ◦•◦•◦•◦•◦• Thankfully, the threat passed without anything much changing other than a lot of freaked out tourists and locals, but I can honestly say that that was frightening. Today will be spent feeling grateful for everything 🙏🏻“

We met artist Alex Jones a few years ago when this watercolor painting of El Jefe was still a work-in-progress. Alex was inspired by recent news of borderland jaguars, which led him to the Northern Jaguar Project. He has donated the 40x72" original for Jaguar-Arte in Tucson tomorrow night. We hope you will join us!
These art auctions are a celebratory time to gather, meet, and mingle with all of our jaguar-loving friends. We have a new 4k-resolution jaguar video to share with you. There will be Sonoran fare and regional bebidas. Pedro y Los Líricos are the snazzy musicians, so you will want to bring your dancing shoes.
There are now 80+ pieces of jaguar and wildlife art for you to bid on and take home. The stunning creativity and sheer diversity is incredible.
