Sketchbookery: Meet the Arteest
Hey guys! While perusing my favorite blogs this weekend, I came across a project called Sketch Dailies on Jenny's blog . This looked like such a fun art journal prompt that I jumped right in and subscribed to this daily dose of drawing/sketching/painting en...

Sketchbookery, Sources of Inspiration, a Few Books (and lots of links)
I've been dabbling. Motivation is still a huge factor but I keep the sketchbook, paints and brushes close at hand as a constant reminder (and nudge). It's encouraging to see that this sketchbook is surely filling. And to make my online sketchbook complete, ...

A Painting of Paintings and a Desktop (or Two)
I fell in love with an old rusty clipboard this week. So, I painted it. And then I added a little (imaginary?) painting to the top sheet of imaginary paper.  The process was easy. Processing the thought in this foggy brain, not so much. You may or may not b...

Life Lately...Some Art. No Bags. Thyroid Gone Bad.
I'll admit it. Life around these parts is slower of late.  Blogging and shop updates have become haphazard and sporadic. It's not because I don't care or love art and bags. Believe me, I care. But the fact remains, life is slower. Here's why. Almost two yea...

Hard Drives and Hot Toddies
I was off the grid this week - literally. My hard drive died and, even though I'd repeatedly backed up my data, panic and running amok were definitely involved. Not sure why it took an entire week to fix though it may have had something to do with my hard h...

DIY Weekly Planner
It's freaking July already! You may remember this post earlier in the year lamenting the fact that my favorite Moleskine planner is no longer in production. As a result, I got desperate creative and made my own. Just finished my third and, I gotta tell you,...

My Sketchbook: Buggy (and Foggy)
With spring comes the desire for outdoor living. Tradeoff, I suppose, is that we must co-exist with crawling and flying and creeping creatures - my possible inspiration for this entry. Or maybe it was the lovely bug photo I found, ripped from a magazine and...

My Sketchbook: Watercolor Journaling
Oh boy, I believe this is the longest stretch I've ever taken without blogging. If you read my previous post , you'll know why. Just a brief update before I commence with the watercolor jabber... Last week I (finally) did the radioactive iodine therapy with...

Intense Love and the February Desktop
First I made a mostly turquoise painting to use as February's desktop. Turquoise is my "go to" color of choice. But for February? I headed back to the drawing board and gave this quote a tweak. Much better. Add pretty kraft paper and a few flowers and you'v...

My Sketchbook: Finding My Style (and being okay with it)
Painting realistically is what I do. I'm comfortable with that. But for some time now, I've wanted to change things up. I admire artists such as  Yao Cheng , Jennifer Orkin Lewis and Emily Jeffords .  So I strive to work more loosely, using vibrant colors -...
