Moving forward.

I have been posting my work online for quite a number of years now, since 2004 I think. I have gone through a number of iterations with various blogs on blogspot and then using Some people have followed me throughout and for that I am very grateful. When I started this website, I originally […]

Mid Week Snow Day

Having the day off from work today is a real blessing for me. I do not mind having a break and staying in all day. It is a chance for me to relax a little and to work on some of my own work. I have been very frustrated lately with my artwork. I managed […]

Abstract watercolor on scrap paper.

I’ve been feeling in such a slump recently that I’ve cast aside my goals for the time being in favor of making art for the pure joy of it. This is inspired by these quilts made from recycled saris: beautiful, imperfect and slightly sloppy.

2014 Art Goals

My mantra this year is “Less thinking, more doing.” The image below is a work in progress. I got this plain 2014 planner at Target a few weeks back and I am in the process of drawing/doodling on it. I will post a picture of it when it is finished as well. A lot of […]

2013 in Review

I took December off from my blog so I could enjoy my daughter and do lots of “Christmassy” things with her. I hope everybody had a nice holiday as well. When I think back on 2013, I realize that I didn’t get all that much artwork done, but it was a great year for me […]

In the Apple Orchard

I have lived in Massachusetts for over twenty years and I can’t believe that I have never gone apple picking until this year when we took Cate. Yes, I have been to orchard farm stands and bought apples that were already harvested, but I never wandered through the orchard myself and plucked the ripe fruit […]

Upgrades and useful items.

I got myself a few early birthday presents recently, which are all useful things as well. I am not a big shopper, but I do like purchasing items that will improve my life. Last year I bought a down comforter and now I’ve made my bed perfect with a wool blanket. They are pricy, but […]

Mini Food

I have always loved miniatures and dollhouses as a child and still do even to this day. I recently bought a dollhouse kit for my daughter that I am planning to assemble for her (and then hide in the attic until she’s old enough for it). Recently I found a stash of mini food I […]

Northampton Greenery

Last Sunday I visited Northampton, Mass. for the day. I like to visit the area about once a year, as I always find a lot of inspiration when I visit, and it reminds me of the years when I was in school. I’ve had a feeling of overwhelm lately which has led to me to […]

Stone Harbor

I skipped my normal Friday photo posting yesterday because I was at the Shore for a few days. It was a great trip for me as haven’t been outside of New England for a few years and this was Cate’s first time seeing/feeling the ocean. I did not do a lot of sketching while I […]
