Getting back on track...

Blogging Round 2: Let's see if I can stick with it this time!

I've had so many things inspire me that I want to tell stories about, it's overwhelming to think my last post was in FEBRUARY. Yikes! Oh how life's joys, demons and surprises have occupied me so!

My latest project was a new series of paintings that I exhibited for a one-night show on June 27th. I really challenged myself to make a new body of work, even if only to be seen initially for one night... I was really happy with the results, and a couple pieces sold! Now I have the rest of the art to market to other places and advertise in my etsy shop!!



Stay tuned for the next post: The Zen of the Button Box!

one week ago...

I was in the Redwood Forest...







I was so humbled by these magnificent creatures and overwhelmed by all the jewels hiding at the bottom of the forest floor. Some of these trees have been around since Pompeii was covered in ash, yet new life is constantly growing and dying around them. The beauty of this place is truly amazing.

a slow start

One of my projects for the new year was to get this blog started up again. It's been a long while since I had my thoughts and ramblings up on this page, and I thought it would be great to have an outlet for telling stories of life, laughs and the creative process.

I am currently sitting at my desk at work, bubbling over with ideas for new art projects. I am kept company by my sloth-faced pumpkin, a gift from Rhonda that's been on my desk since October. I thought he'd rot by now, but he's going the distance with me...keeping an eye out while I research antiques...

My new inspiration is the idea of finishing something everyday...be it a drawing, a painting, processing a photograph or posting something here. I often think about my friend Bill and his 365 portraits project...how he ambitiously schlepped his camera gear around NYC, capturing the soul of someone new everyday. It's definitely something to aspire to!
