Deer. Gentleness. Innocence. Moving and acting from love and compassion rather than trying to change another person. Moving through life with grace and sensitivity. Deer can help you be graceful and caring in challenging situations and in moving through obstacles. We could all stand to be a bit more gentle in life, couldn't we? Not only with others, but with ourselves! #dailyanimalart #deer #deerart #animaltotem #animalmedicine #paintingaday

Fox! Can't believe I was actually able to start and finish this today. Part of it was done with a baby on my lap, holding him with one arm and painting with the other! I think he liked it. :) Fox is about invisibility, adaptability, awareness of your surroundings, and sure-footedness. Fox is also a good protector of the family unit. Day 3 of my #dailyanimalart and going strong! #paintingaday #sketchbook #jessicaswift #fox #foxart

Raccoon! Day 5 of my #dailyanimalart and going strong. This one I painted with Coen strapped onto me facing forward so he could watch! So fun. (He fell asleep halfway through; guess he got bored, haha.) Raccoon asks you to look at the masks you might be wearing in your life. Where are you hiding? Raccoon is also a generous protector and provider - he can inspire you to give freely, generously, and without judgment. Of special personal note: when I was in labor with Coen, 3 raccoons came to…

Skunk. Commands respect. Reminds you to respect and love yourself, just as you are. And with that, I am off to bed! #dailyanimalart #paintingaday #animalpainting #skunk #sketchbook

Reminds you to respect and love yourself, just as you are.

And today's animal: Black Bear! I'm learning that I can really accomplish a lot while Coen is napping, and the short time frame doesn't allow me the opportunity to think too much / second guess myself / get all negative! Bear is all about mothering, protection, the feminine. Getting quiet and hibernating, emerging renewed. Going within. Intuition. One of my personal favorite animals! #dailyanimalart #dailyswiftpics #sketchbook #paintingaday #bear #bearart  #blackbear

I've been going back and forth on whether to attempt a daily creative project this year, knowing that my time is verrrry limited and unpredictable these days with Baby Coen around (he's 14 1/2 weeks today!). I thought I'd like to paint an animal a day -- some days will be quick, some days will be more elaborate as time allows.  Some will be gouache, some won't. Some will be on paper, some on canvas or wood. We'll see! Today's was quick (today was a little rough over here, mama/baby-wise)…

Monkey! It's Chinese New Year and the Year of the Monkey, so today's animal is in honor of that. Also, Monkey was the animal the year I was born, too, so that's cool! Monkey is dark and light. Creativity and imagination. Playfulness and caring. Monkey asks you to consider what you say and how you say it. Also, agility and good luck. Let your Monkey energy shine today on this New Moon and celebratory day! #dailyanimalart #yearofthemonkey #yearofthemonkey2016 #animalmedicine #paintingaday…

Mouse is today's daily animal. Mouse is about focus and attention to detail. Scrutiny. The flip side is that often the forest is lost for the trees; getting caught up in small details, nit-picking perhaps,  and not seeing the big picture. But Mouse is very organized and likes everything in its place. Mouse can help remind is that life is larger than it may appear... Broaden your sphere! It will help you keep balance between small details that are right in front of you and the larger order…

A little baby in my life has decided to be a somewhat better napper today, so I got to paint for a while in the daytime! Victory in our time! Today's animal is Panda. Panda is quiet and modest. Strong yet flexible. Humble, happy, and focused. Peace, good luck, positivity, and gentleness. How nice, right? #dailyanimalart #dailyswiftpics #panda #pandaart #animalmedicine #paintingaday

Kangaroo! This one was another suggests from my hubby. He keeps suggesting I do a possum, and I keep saying no. Haha. So one day, my daily animal will be a possum! But for today, Kangaroo. Kangaroo only moves forward, never backward. In doing this, it provides the strength and stamina to continue and accomplish what you want to do. Moving forward continually  is all you have to do right now, moving through situations in life with ease and creativity. Also, fun fact: did you know that…
