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...

Lately: A Question, an Oddity, a Sneak Peek and a Recipe
Still in the mountains - enjoying the weather. Question - J purchased this gloriously fragrant, flowering weeping type tree - actually two. He planted them and tossed out the tag...men. Can anyone identify it for me? I wish you could smell it. Look at the t...

April's Desktop is Here!
I know. It's gosh awful ridiculous late. But I've been gosh awful ridiculous busy and just got around to changing my desktop yesterday! I used a picture I took some time back and edited with beautifully grungy overlays. Just click on the image to download y...

Lately (New Bags, Site, Locale and Balance )
This was us last week. Last week was stressful and this was our cure. Well, that and a cold beer. We had a death of someone in the family who was way too young to pass. Death is always sad but when it comes too early it's just downright tragic. (I'm not ask...

Anticipation: Warmer Weather, New Art and BAGS!
Almost two weeks ago the mister and I headed up to our little cabin in the woods - supposedly for a long weekend. And because mother nature provided such unexpectedly lovely and unseasonably warm weather, we refused to go home. One weekend turned into almos...

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...

Sketchbook: 4/13/16
I'm so excited to have some sort of order now - such as... When at home, work on bags, bags, bags. When in the mountains, make art, art, art. You, of course, understand why this took, literally, years to conclude. Yesterday we left Atlanta, where the pollen...

It's a New Recycled Leather Bag!
To be honest, it was a lot like riding a bike. All of my little tricks and techniques fell right into place as I took my time with my first leather bag of the year. I know - it's April and I'm slow as molasses but who's counting? Certainly not me. And wait....

52 Weeks of Print: 45/52 Dogwood
With thoughts of Easter, I carved an image of a few dogwood sprigs. They remind me of younger days growing up in the church and beautiful dogwoods growing wild here in the south. ( from Instagram ) Using a  homemade registration board , I added a little col...

52 Weeks of Print: 44/52 Words, a Snail, Taxes and a Website
It's time for a stamp to add to the back of (future) cards and even though this is a fairly small project, carving out those letters is a bit of a struggle! The snail, naturally, symbolizes my stealth-like speed.  This was the ideal project for week 44 beca...

Carving in Progress via Instagram Guess what? This week I put on my big girl pants and not only carved something larger, I also decided to do a hand-pulled linocut series print to sell. I know! Have to admit that the entire process freaked me out just a bit...
