The Superhero and I got busy on a collaborative project to make a new daybed sofa for our (dog) den. It certainly feels more like a dog house than a people den, so we wanted to update it with a daybed we could cover with many layers and make it washable to keep it fresh […]
This past Sunday was Mother’s Day here in the USA. I was remembering my Mother’s garden so many moons ago now. It was not fancy, it was not ornate but it sure was cheery. I believe these memories were the impetus for this small 8×10″ painting. (you are seeing the cropped instagram version). She will […]
Back to the journal, it’s been quite a while and I’ve realized it’s time to get back to that creative practice again. Trying to stay in my whimsical mode and push through even though I’ve felt like the energy is not there. The daily creative practice always brings it back, so….to the journal it is. […]
Painting 52 Projects #20 and #21 funky flowers. Different color ways warm and cool. 6×6 wood blocks panels. Kid rising in me. Teaching kid stuff shapes. Nice family for our free play day at the association. And a day spent in Wolfboro New Hampshire with good friend Erika. Erika was a good sport to pose […]
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 […]
Hoot Hoot, this guy is the new pollinator pied a terre. Our owl-like bug hotel to bring in solitary bees, beneficial wasps and lacewings, not to mention those wonderful spiders who take care of so much of the garden and help to pollinate our vegetables and flowers. Those of you on facebook or instagram will […]
