Been absent for a week or so with visits from a far away friend and grandkids. Lots of work in progress but nothing quite ready to show except some photo alterations. A bit of color for a midweek WIP. An enjoyable alteration exploration for a mid week break
Through the winter window; a view to the barn. Morning light, flinty and just barely enough. Late light fleeting seam of weak sun disappearing in the west. Light we hunt for when the days are short and sometimes gloomy. Gathering all the sunbursts inside to hold for spring. Collage, marks, digital typography. Linking to […]
Christmas is around the corner and will be here before we know it. I’ve been a busy elf getting ready for the holiday art and craft show next week and feeling a bit out of the loop. But I took a few hours on Thursday to shop local with mom and pop shops in our […]
A new doll in the works. Remember that pink stitching here. A new pincushion from some darling Japanese fabric from the stash. Work on the collage wall continues The stack waiting to be read. Sunset views over the barn. And a little light for the night. Night night.
I am sure most of you wake up in the wee hours of the morning at one time or another. This morning it was the running of I don’t know what, the bulls at Pamploma, or a circle race around the house by several canine beings that woke me up. Since I declined to do […]

A late walk, still air, nothing moving, not a breath. Still life, photos of things that are static. Some natural, some […]
My favorite mug with a sweet sparkly air digitally manipulated. “Wake me up coffee” I can smell the French Roast now. There is a new May challenge up at Mix-It-Monthly about one of my favorite subjects. Coffee… The Art-Journal-Journey theme is circles, well it all fits. Be sure to visit both links and follow on […]
Out for a stroll. Cold and So sunny. Black White and Red(READ) all over. A flower of sorts some moss and some berries. The rust and decay The rules for today Off in the shadows this cold and sunny day.
Before the birds were singing, I was painting in the studio. Movement, release, energy, play. All of these things were at work as the sun was coming up over the Atlantic. The painting I was working on is not done, but I was culling older collage pieces to recycle them into new work and SeRenDIpiTY […]
