Fall Is Coming Autumn is nearly here. My favorite season. Everything changes. A fresh breeze blows. Energy returns. Shadows lengthen. Patterns change. But, right now, it’s 90 degrees. It’s still summer. I have tomatoes on the vine, eggs to collect, and peach and apple pies to bake. I have plans to flesh out and implement […]
The first day of the rest of this blog. The fear of the blank page has followed me from my art table to here. In order to break it, I speed sketched and painted a tag; it’s sole purpose to bring me back to blogging. Baby Steps. Thank you to […]
From My Word Bowl – 30 in 30 Painting # 12 I wasn’t going to bring From My Word Bowl back until after 30 Paintings in 30 Days and 29 Faces were finished, but I needed a little inspiration for today’s watercolor face. These were today’s words: Thanks for having a peek […]
Does This Ever Happen To You? Does a painting ever take over your creative process to the extent that you can’t work on, or think about painting anything else? I’ve been dealing with this for the last couple of weeks. Ten days ago, (ten days ago!) I posted this photo of a work in progress […]
30 Paintings in 30 Days – Paintings 9 and 10 Painting 30 paintings in 30 days is no easy task! I have three paintings that I am working on right now that are in various stages of “unfinishedness”. Lots of layers and lots of drying time and a fair share of repainting or painting over […]

30 Paintings in 30 Days – Days 6 and 7 Day 6 This one is titled, ‘Faith’ and was inspired by this week’s Life Book 2016 lesson by Angela Kennedy. Day 7 I was hungry when I started painting. Don’t paint when you’re hungry or you’ll end up with a quick, […]
30 Paintings in 30 Days – Days 3, 4 and 5 Apparently, I forgot that it was the Labor Day Weekend on Friday and told you that I would be posting a new painting on Saturday. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Rather than pressure myself with too many things to do, I […]

Do you doodle while you’re on the phone? I do. Face #11 was doodled while talking with my mom today. Watercolor, ink and colored pencils. Happy Valentine’s Day!
A quick watercolor that I did today for EMG Sketch Fest, for the prompt Green Eyed Lady, prompted by Elma Bree.
What a busy week! How was your’s? I’m hoping it was wonderful and that you’re all set to have a fabulous and relaxing weekend. In between all the busy stuff that life throws at us, I did some doodles and a couple of quick little postcard size paintings. The doodles were done on two separate […]
