Marathon creation session after Kip went to bed tonight. Post-Pesto shrimp pasta dinner. Rosé. Motown playlist (thanks CK ) the most delicious moment when everyone has gone to bed and our home is still. Time just for this crown and me ♥️ Hashtags! #brookeknaus #abstractart #contemporaryart #painting #art #artconsultant #todaysartreport
What a fantastic time with @theartsalonclt Ladies in the garden...bubbles in the garden...new friends and old friends in the garden...the bar was set a notch higher!
Mark making feels like writing in a diary. It’s compulsive. Intuitive. Very private but at some level universal. I studied Communications in college, and always wanted to be a writer...but words weren’t quick enough for me. Mark making on the other hand can tell a story without a single letter, in a single stroke. Or two. Or a hundred. A story distilled into abstract marks... ink and tea on paper. #contemporaryart #markmaking #brookeknaus #artcurator
Baby to set! Thank you @horizonforestcharlotte for giving Kip his acting debut. We had such a good time!
Slice of heaven. I haven’t been here in a while...ebbs and flows of daily life just haven’t made it possible. But I have been listening to Nineth Street Women by Mary Gabriel at the recommendation of @laurenbolshakovart It’s inspiring to hear about a group of women who were part of my favorite period of modern art making.

Sometimes you meet the nicest, most patient of all the people in the world. And sometimes they’ll stick with you through a painstakingly slow commission. AKA working-while-Kip-napped-or-had-the-help-of-a-sitter. Many, many thanks to the wonderful woman who let me take my time to relearn how to paint in this style. * this photo is (slightly ) brightened for the sake of insta.
