Flower Girl full of whimsy and surprise. Naive, innocent and sweet. She surrounds herself with bitsy blooms. Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere. Happy Sunday, happy week.
Painting whimsy. Two new projects in my year long journey. Love bloom, a color wheel, summertime picnic, floral bloom. Bird Blossom whimsy in flight and a greeting delivered on the wing. Calling on my inner child for advice.
Yesterday was a chock full fun afternoon at Creative Lab after school. A warm and cool color exercise day and a warm then cool weather day. How did we predict this??? Engaging with the kids, listening to what makes them tick, and seeing their creative bloom engages us adults to notice more and be mindful. […]
Here comes the sun as George Harrison sang…I made this sweet 6″ sun on a downpour of a day last week. It will eventually be part of something larger, but for now it makes me happy just having on my sewing table. Don’t you love that bright batik! A tiny project it’s true but more […]
Tiny shape stories. Made a simple one page folding book for upcoming after school kid’s classes at the gallery. Painted paper shapes following the “shapes” show in the gallery for April. Model a one page folded x book resulting in 8 small pages. An exploded view… That’s why I find it always pays to have […]

Those of you on facebook or instagram will […]
Worry? Who me? Cloud over my head… I started this small fellow who is a bit bigger than the the size of my hand a couple of weeks ago. He languished in a basket with some other dolls until last evening. I new he needed the bells for comic relief as his mouth is tense […]
Journals, journals, journals. That’s what I have been up to. Making some for class fun with kids which are covers at this point and making collage in my own journal to get back in the swing. It’s all about the journal…
Frustration. You know. The day nothing goes right, feels good, or satisfies you. That was me last Saturday. To solve the problem, the challenge, I made a “frustration” buddy to remind no me to look up, look out at new possibilities. I think he suits me just fine. He’s leaning against my journal stack right […]
Soft sculpture is calling me because it combines all my creative loves in one package. Painting, collage and stitching. Project #11 is a Totem Heart. She’s (I think of hearts as women)10″ wide by 18″ long not counting the hanger and the tassel. The machine stitched fabric nest is stitched on by hand. The tassel […]
