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...

Love This...
Previously, if working white over black or color, I've only found satisfactory results with my tube of Winsor & Newton White Designers Gouache - even when working on letters. The guoache works beautifully but it's a bit more work writing with a brush. All o...

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures (and a Tiny Tutorial)
Fact: I live by my planner. Fact: I've learned a lesson. Don't procrastinate.  My favorite planner has been ordered since mid December and it may not come until mid February. Apparently my favorite planner is everyone else's favorite planner. And they don't...

The Pondering of Words & A New Desktop for January...
Well hello! Did you think I'd been swallowed up, never to return? Nah, I just shrunk back for the remainder of the holiday season - more or less unplugging (as much as humanly possible these days) and gathering thoughts, spending time with my dysfunctional ...

My Sketchbook: Art on the Road
Hey guys! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. After a long weekend, we (and the other 75% of the U.S. population) hit the road for home. I brought along my art journal/sketchbook and decided to play around with something I began last week. Here's...

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 -...

52 Weeks of Print: Antique Scissors
Today was my "special day", if you get my drift. So I may have been feeling a little antique-ish. And, to be perfectly honest, my "special day" is just like any other day. Except for cooking. I don't cook on "special days". Do you cook on your special day? ...

Initial sketch and lino carving. Do you see that? ©2015 for cryin' out loud! Where has the time gone? I could not wait to get back to this series . And, looking back over the past 29 "weeks", I seem to be drawn to greenery of some sort, whether imagined or ...

December 2014 Wallpaper is Ready to Download!
Because of the busy-ness of November and December, I wasn't even going to do a wallpaper. Then one evening I pulled out some artwork and played around to make one for myself...cause, to me, going without a new wallpaper each month is pure sacrilege. Then, I...

52 Weeks of Print: 28/52
I know! You thought I'd forgotten about/abandoned this challenge, right? No. In fact, I've been craving it and finally had a chance to play with week 28 this weekend. I'd been wanting a "thank you" stamp for packages, cards, etc. - not to even mention that ...
