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 […]
It’s the stories we draw, the stories we share and the stories we keep. It would be amazing if we wrote them all down somewhere, the volume of tiny books of histories would fill the sky and our connections might be stronger if we took the time to read even just a few. We all […]
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.
I haven’t played in the studio with paints for a while. As a de-stressed, printing with my new Gel Press plates always melts the tension. I did a bit of fabric which is drying and so painted background papers using the super size 12×14″ plate. Something so satisfying about slapping it down on to whatever […]
Designing and stitching imaginary creatures for the holiday fair. Each softie will have a tag so the child who receives it will know it’s their creature to define and name. Imaginary play making is the goal. They also appeal to the big kid in me. And to some of you, who have commented to me. […]

Cool enough to close the doors and keep the windows from being wide open. Even in the heat of the day, a sea breeze still prevailed and the air just felt- different. […]
Painting, painting and more. Working on 8 canvases simultaneously. Getting ready for a show and an art fair. Blues have been calling me all summer. This river I walk daily must be singing to me. Sand and detritus, odd bits and fabric still to be-come a part of it all. Painting until the energy drains […]
Stitching dolls, painting backgrounds. A lot of work happening all at once and not much finished. Summer time heat and I’m easily distracted. Sitting in the shade with iced coffee watching dog TV happening in the yard. A good Craig Johnson Longmire mystery and a nap in the hammock. A new way of eating, can […]
