This week, I’m chatting with painter Mya Bessette.  Mya creates beautiful abstract landscapes, many of which are inspired by the nature around her home in Bigfork, Montana.  I love how expansive and atmospheric Mya’s paintings are - some of them are more moody and mysterious, and others are bursting with light and color.  Her joy and enthusiasm for art and creativity are totally contagious!  While you’re listening, go check out her work on Instagram @myabessetteart.
