52 Weeks of Print: Week 52 Cabin in the Woods
I'll be honest. Around my house I'm not know as someone who finishes a task. AND this 52 week project ended up taking almost two years - but in my defense I had medical reasons ! Anyway.... Anyway. It's finished! For the final project, I wanted to create so...

52 Weeks of Print: 50/52 Words
Carving leaves and pretty things is one thing but carving letters is something else entirely - for me anyway. One slip and it says something like "Storms make oars take roots" or "Storms make oaks lake roots".  Kinda ruins the mood. Not to mention the fact ...

Meet Lucy
This little spark plug is the reason I haven't been around lately - she's been training me. How's it going so far? Stick me with a fork, I think I'm done (for). Remember a couple of weeks back when I worked on this semi hideous carving of Sophie for 52 Week...

52 Weeks of Print: 48/52 Sophie
Let's begin with a little background. If you've followed along here for longer than one year, you would know my Sophie. Sadly, we lost her in March of last year. It's something I've never mentioned here because, well, you know. She was the sweetest of all s...

Art Supply Organization for Travel & Home
In the recent Artful Blogging article , I discussed my new practice of keeping an art duffle on hand both at home and for traveling.  Of course, I'm not talking about carrying supplies on vacations or short trips - in that case, I just toss  it into my back...

52 Weeks of Print: 46/52 A Lesson in the Importance of Simplification
You know, this weeks entry is a lesson in walking away. And critique. And patience. Positive and negative spaces and simplification. Whew! Stay with me here... The first picture at the top and the very last image I took early this morning, after coming back...

52 Weeks of Print: 51/52 Botanical
What with the addition of Lucy , sewing time is absolutely not happening until she reaches the point of complete disinterest in scraps of fabric, leather and the various art supplies which litter my studio. I am wondering when (or if) that milestone will ev...

52 Weeks of Print: 49/52 Lino Buggy
Believe it or not, although Lucy is the queen of adorableness, our eight week old spark plug insists on attention 24/7 - or to rephrase, the life of our home depends on it. Folks, the need to make something artsy was getting downright out of hand so yesterd...

New Bags & Pouches in the Shop!
I've been putting a few of those carved lino stamps to good use lately and am loving the results - especially that sweet little number in the front with the blue ink and red leather pull. Yum. And the artist pouches - yes, I currently use about 4-ish in all...

52 Weeks of Print: 47/52 Folk Art
So, if you take one look at this and say, "That's not folk art!", don't be too harsh. But do tell me because I'm a newbie. In all honesty, I'm not sure I nailed the folk art theme but I was attempting a simplified version. I thoroughly enjoyed working this ...

Artful Blogging: Recapturing the Creative Person
Last year, the folks over at Artful Blogging Magazine contacted me about writing an article and as a regular reader for many years, I was truly honored for such an invite! It was decided that I would talk a little about my recent illness and how I worked to...

Sketchbook: Magnolia 4/18/16
Because I couldn't get enough magnolia after this debacle , I was compelled (or maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment?) to rethink saucer magnolia in watercolor. It worked better in watercolor. So, I'm back in Atlanta now. Back in the studio and full of s...
