The world is terrifying and ugly and cold sometimes.
Today is one of them.
I’ve been doing lots of drawing lately. I’ve shared before how I used to doodle ALL the time – anywhere, anytime, on anything I could. That led to more focused drawing, with Sharpies, Faber-Castell artist pens, and more recently, Micron … Continue reading
This new year – dare I say it? – feels pretty good so far. All over social media you see the usual beginning-of-year articles, posts, memes, etc. dealing with new year resolutions. Personally, I stopped doing resolutions a few years … Continue reading
Happy New Year! Hopefully 2016 finds you ready and hopeful for lots of awesome opportunities and adventures. As for me, this is the year I vow to focus more on my art as a business – and to me, that … Continue reading
Happy Friday! I’ve been getting back to creating again – finally! Finding time to do what my heart and soul NEED to do is just what the doctor ordered. And I do mean that literally. My doctor said it was … Continue reading
Just wanted to share today’s sketchbook journal page. This started with some late night scribbling and doodles last night, and I finished it today while listening to the pouring rain. (LOVE the sound of rain!)
I’ve added a couple new items to my Etsy shop!
I LOVE painting these beautiful tin nichos from Mexico. I painted this chapel nicho in bright colors – red, turquoise, green, and more – and on the inside I used the “El Corazon” card from a Loteria game (like Mexican bingo) on a bed of gold glitter (also from Mexico). To see more photos go to my Etsy shop (link above)!
This small wood angel ornament measures just under four inches tall and comes ready to hang with a twine loop. I drew bold whimsical flowers on a white background, making them pop by using purple, turquoise, orange, yellow, and green.
I have lots more projects in progress – I’ll be sharing soon!
‘Til next time…

Last week I shared the beginning of my newest art journal pages. Thought you might like to see the finished pages… ’til next time…
As I wrote before, my mother-in-law is in the hospital. Today is day 12 of Lawrence and I spending our days (and some nights) at Kaiser Permanente with her. I started bringing my sketchbook with me recently, along with some … Continue reading
Life has thrown us another curve, and I’ve had to put my Etsy shops in vacation mode for a while. My 85 year old mother-in-law fell last Friday (January 23) and she broke her hip. She had surgery on Sunday and, unfortunately, it led to several complications to her already bad health. I’m spending my days with my husband Lawrence at the hospital.
Any positive vibes you can send would be greatly appreciated.
