Its hard to believe that I was really trying to sketch a bird in that old pic, but I was. 😂 If you scroll, you'll see more examples that prove this point. While I miss all the good laughs we used to get by looking at my sketchbook, I do enjoy drawing recognizable pictures. #anniegriffethart#draw#dailydrawing
This painting has really been speaking to me lately. Everyday it greets me with the same question, what's life really about? So far all I can say is its weird and wacky, and maybe its just about being you and spreading your light into the dark corners of the world. Each step we take pushes over a domino and one by one we are all affecting each other. I knew when I made this that it was for someone else. Someone who would connect with the crazy feeling of being involved in this grand mystery. As an artist, this is how I tangibly send my light into the world, and a sparkling shard of it lives in this piece. 💖 Anyway, know Im sending love to you all today. If this work speaks to you, its available through my website anniegriffeth.com or you can DM me.

I took a few days off from painting to spend time with my sister (she's been fighting the good fight in the hospital) which is why I havent posted anything new, but I did find this little giesha painting I did a while back. I have always been fascinated with geishas because they are living works of art. There is mystery and magic that surrounds them and I like that. 💖 #anniegriffethart
This is still one of my favorite paintings that Ive done this year. I just wanted to share it again for anyone whos having a bad day/week/month/year. Hang in there. Love you guys and happy friday! #anniegriffethart#flashbackfriday
I decided to redo the painting I did a few days back because I accidently tore the paper I was painting on. This was supposed to be exactly like that one, with monarch butterflies and a hobit adventure keyhole, but my mind was somewhere else today so this painting became what it is. A dance in dreamland. Hope you like it! Xoxo #anniegriffethart#surrealism
This was a cute warm up I did the other day. A little love bug. Or rather a woman transformed by love. 💖 i go through phases of using certain images in my work, based mostly on whats happening in my life and in my head. Right now growth and transformation are my common themes, so lots of moths and butterflies. Anyway, hope you like and happy wednesday! Xoxo #anniegriffethart#lunamoth#lovebug
Here's a clip on how I created the monarch on my most recent painting. I used really watered down acrylic paint, a Micron archival ink pen, and a white gel pen. Hope you enjoy! (Sound up for relaxing piano jams 💖) 12 x 12 in. 125. Link in Bio. Xoxo #anniegriffethart#artvideos

No shipping charge. Message me to purchase. Xoxo #anniegriffethart

Looking at these is like looking in my diary. I never know what Ill be painting when I start one. I just sketch the girl somewhere on the paper and let the rest of it come to me. Whatever I'm feeling the most strongly about at the time of the painting is the message that comes through in the work. Making this kind of art has been really healing because it has connected me with other people who are like me. People who have seen their lowest lows and kept going, and who have met their highest highs with gratefulness in their hearts. Its been a really cool experience that has helped me grow so much in the last months. 💖💖💖 #anniegriffethart
When you stand at the edge of change, doubt and fear will grab at your feet to try and keep you down. Show them who's boss, baby.

Throwin it back a few months to when I did this awesome retro rainbow. I sent this one off to a wonderful person and made myself an identical one to hang in my own house because I loved it so much. Rainbows are really special to me. They are a totem of hope and they bring the promise that the troubles of today will surely pass. Xoxo #anniegriffethart#throwbackthursday#tbt#rainbow
Recently a medium picked me out of a crowd and did a reading on me. He said he felt my dad's spirit and went on to recite details about my dad and my life with eerie accuracy. One of the things he mentioned was that he was hearing the song from Alice in Wonderland (A Very Merry Unbirthday) in his head. It struck me as so strange because for months I have done Alice inspired work (scroll to see a few). The only self portrait Ive ever done was of me, as Alice. Maybe it was just pure coincidence, or maybe my dad was trying to say, Im with you. 💖 #anniegriffethart#aliceinwonderland
I've been contemplating what happens when we die lately. Do we become angels? Do we go back to the collective energy pool or do we just disinigrate into space dust? What do you think? I've been trying on all these ideas to find the one that makes the most sense. From that experience comes this painting. Im still working on it but its pretty close to done. Hope you enjoy! #anniegriffethart#angels#space
