I didn't see the show, but yeah, I know the name Montgolfier means balloons/ballooning. I guess I've just read a fair amount of science-related history that took place around that era.
     See why Andy said, and I quote, "THAT WAS OUR BEST ONE YET" about tonight's Hangout! I hope he doesn't mean because my connection was shaky at first.      Yesterday on Jeopardy!, Bill Albertini "took it to the champ," ac...

This Relates to Art
While I draw, I often listen to audiobooks. This serves a couple of purposes: 1. I often draw from my computer screen, and audiobooks keep the screen from dimming (music doesn't, or maybe it could be set so that it does, but I haven't tried to figure that o...

Two For One
You get two Virtual Paintout submissions in this post, one for the June location of Vladivostok and surrounding areas, and one for the July location of Greece. First up, Vladivostok. I found this spot in Spassk-Dalny, which was (to be frank) a grim little t...

This is the best example I've seen in a long time of why it makes no sense to play for second. Second is losing! Second is going home!

I facepalmed too, and by facepalmed I mean screamed incredulously at the television.

A Little Help?
I like to look through the photos in the Flickr Commons . If you're not familiar with it, the Commons is a place for organizations from around the world to post photos from their archives. The goal is to get them seen, and also often to crowd-source more in...

Thanks for the Q&A, Jeanie. And thanks to Josh for the very honest comments about being bested ... I can relate. :)

Illustration Friday: Journey
Last week I dipped my toes in the water with Illustration Friday . I drew something for the theme of "King," but I didn't actually submit it on the website. I figured I'd just see if I was able to come up with anything at all, and I was pleased that I did. ...

On Hiatus
I mean, I have been on hiatus already. But I'm making it official now. I know I didn't even get through the end of our time in Europe. I didn't post pictures from Padova and Venice the second time around, Vicenza, Verona, Pompeii, Naples, December in Gent. ...

On Greener Grass
It's funny how it seems to be human nature to always want whatever you don't have. People with straight hair envy their friends with curly hair, and the same in reverse. Often it seems to work the same way with art. When I was in high school, I had a friend...

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait
Lately, for some reason I seem to be working on projects that take a lot of patience. I admit that I'm usually more the instant-gratification type, but it's been very satisfying to see things develop slowly (sometimes oh. so. slowly) into what I want them t...

Food, Glorious Food
Food is something I don't draw all that often. I'm more interested in eating it. Also, if everyone else is eating and you're drawing your plate, people start to think you're odd at best. But while in Naples, I found myself having breakfast alone at the hote...

Sketchy
One down side to the fact that I haven't been going out much is that I haven't been doing a lot of sketching. Drawing finished pieces is good too, don't get me wrong, but sketching lets me practice drawing unexpected subjects instead of picking and choosing...

Story
Tagline
artist, photographer, dilettante.
Introduction
I am an artistic and creative dabbler. I enjoy drawing, photography, knitting, crocheting, and making all sorts of random crafts. If you like any of the stuff you see on here, a lot of it is probably for sale: art prints in my Society6 store and photography on RedBubble.

I live in Italy. Sto imparando l'italiano, ma sono una principiante.

If you have added me, and would like me to circle you back, the best way is to have a conversation with me. I am not able to check out every profile, but I do look at profiles when I see a new name pop up in comments or plus 1's.
