Working on original art for mini journals for some creativity kits. This is my fond likeness our our dog Ryder, red dog. He is most sociable which is why he is saying hello. There is a woman with a chicken on her head, some birds and other happy figures. A sweet fellow glad for Pajama […]
Painting in blues. The new show theme is Blue or Clouds(in my case both), so I’ve been making small 8×10 art for the show and also to carry forward for Art in the Park in September. Projects are drying everywhere in the studio and there is another blue painting in the works too. I’ve had […]
Upcycling and re-use is a favorite of mine as many of you know. I found some serving tray tins at my local thrift and decided that it might be fun to find another use for an item that we all have and rarely, if but once a year use. So my canvas for this piece […]
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 […]

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.
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 […]
