Today in the Summer Peace Retrospective we have two New Zealand landscapes, both watercolours.

On the left (orange tones) is ‘Lake Taupo’, a volcanic lake in the North Island. It’s such a cool place ❤️

Then on the right (blue tones) we have ‘Cape Reinga’. This is at the very top of the North Island and sometimes you can even see where the Pacific & Atlantic Oceans meet - so awesome!

Each original painting is for sale complete with frame for just $97.

DM me if you’re interested in purchasing, thanks! 😁💕

I'm feeling in a very kiwi kind of mood this week ... so the next few pieces in our Summer Peace Retrospective are going to be of New Zealand.

I lived in NZ in my twenties and still yearn to return! (watch this space ... ;-)) It's such a beautiful place

Feeling the delight of Spring today with "Stray Cherry Blossoms" in the Summer Peace Retrospective!

Walk with me through the beautiful spring blossoms that line the pathways through the Harrogate Stray...

After a long cold Yorkshire winter, the sight of the wildly blossoming cherry trees is such a delight!

I loved capturing them in this original oil painting - especially playing with different brush strokes and a palette knife to give an almost 3D effect.

This is probably my personal favourite - I love the impressionist style and the vivid colours especially. It was a labour of love over many months.

The underpainting was a chakra rainbow, to imbue the painting with light and positive energy

Today's artwork in the Summer Peace Retrospective is "Faith on Fire". This original oil painting is an evocative scene from Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire.

It was inspired by a friend's photograph when she captured this amazing sky. Stunning!

Fountains Abbey is part of a monastery built in 11th Century AD, and much still remains of the ancient ruins. It's such a tranquil place, you can imagine the monks going peacefully about their day there.

It's for sale mounted in a high-quality wooden frame with gold inlay - ready to hang a piece of history in your home.

Featuring today's original painting from the Summer Peace Retrospective, "Faith on Fire" - here is a close-up view of a part of the artwork.

Also please see the enclosed room view for how it might look in your space :-) Which room do you think it would look best in in your home?

"Faith on Fire" is available for purchase today at $579, including frame.

(& shipping at cost, if needed. Free delivery in Leesburg, VA area)

(Please see earlier post on Joanne Murphy Studio for image of whole painting)

Today's artwork in the Summer Peace Retrospective is the atmospheric "Faith on Fire" oil painting.

This was inspired by a photograph a friend of mine took - she captured the vivid fiery sky over the tranquil ruins of Fountains Abbey so beautifully. I felt very called to paint this one!

Built in the 1100's by Cistercian monks, Fountains Abbey remains an oasis of calm and peace; it's one of my favourite places to visit in Yorkshire, UK.

The fiery skies are so apt because although it's a peaceful place, it has certainly seen it's share of dramas over the course of history!

This 20"x16" original oil painting is available for purchase for US $579, including the frame. Please DM me, Joanne Murphy, to purchase. Thanks!

(Shipping is available at cost, or free delivery or curbside pickup in Leesburg)

Today in the Summer Peace Retrospective we have "A Course in Miracles" featuring a quote from the book of the same name.

This is a stunning mixed media piece with soulful purples, blues and more. Infused with positive Reiki energy, it sparkles with inspiration and love

If so please tune in to my ‘Summer Peace Retrospective’ this week & next 💕😁 Each day I’ll be featuring a different painting or artwork of mine to hopefully spread a little more peace & love 💕 all work is for sale, DM me for details if you’re interested.

I'm excited to share this with you! My 'Summer Peace' Retrospective - starting next week.

People often comment that my artwork helps them feel calmer and more grounded, and I think we all need a little more peace just now :-)

I love painting peaceful landscapes and vibrant abstracts - it just depends where the energy takes me. As a reiki practitioner, I infuse positive reiki energy into my work as I paint

We celebrated my son’s 5-and-a-half birthday today - after almost 4 months of quarantine it’s any excuse for a party around here! 😉🥳😁. We’ve joined quarantine bubbles with another family so at least our kids are getting some social time together. They had so much fun today - pass the parcel, Simon Says and of course, half a cake! (Yes there is a half of a tiny candle in there next to the 5!). How are you keeping your kids entertained during this extended time at home? I’d love to hear! 😁💕 need new ideas!! 🙌🙈#quarantine #quarantinelife #partytime #halfbirthday #familytime #thingstodoinquarantine #thingstodoathome #nova

Artist & Coach

My artwork tends to be peaceful oil paintings of landscapes I love - especially Yorkshire in the U.K. and places in New Zealand. I show my work in local galleries here in Virginia U.S. and also online. If you would like to purchase or enquire about a piece, please send me a note in facebook messenger or email me: [email protected].

If you’re a creative entrepreneur who wants to thrive creatively AND financially, you’re in the right place. I can help you with the practical aspects of building a business (such as time management) and also the more intricate matters of overcoming fear and procrastination that are quite particular to us creatives.

As an artist myself, I get it. While creativity thrives with some structure, we also crave freedom. We're human beings, not human doings - and as such we need more than endless to-do lists and check boxes.

  • We need inspiration to keep going when success isn't yet visible ...

  • We crave support when we're not sure what to do ...

  • We long for encouragement when we doubt ourselves ...

  • And we love to refresh our creative souls in a multitude of ways.
  • Which means the usual cookie-cutter type approach to building an online business just doesn't sit right with us. A business based on your own creativity (art, writing, design, photography, crafts and more) needs nurturing, not squeezing into a 'one-size fits all' box.

    I get it. I'm an artist, author, coach and I have a long history in project management. I sell my work online, in galleries and at events. My business has been built part-time around my family - in fact my first book was written during my newborn son's naptimes.

    I’m a Masters level Executive Coach & Leadership Mentor with the Institute of Leadership and Management (UK), and have over a decade’s project management experience. I’m pouring all of this into my amazing new membership specifically for creatives - called the Creative Business Collective. (

    On my website ( you can grab a free copy of my Inner Secrets of Inspiration ebook - to help you get and stay inspired.

    I’m determined to help more women succeed in business with my art and writing - because I believe when women become millionaires, they change the world.

    With love,
