In the midst of so much sadness having these lovely silk lanterns and the beautiful lantern shop with the bougainvillea in full blossom was a delight. It took me forever. Depression would pull me, sleepiness and distraction also overtaking me. … Continue reading

Thanks Cynthia Leary Stroo for giving me an idea for a different glaze… Bored and stuck in a rut, I didn’t have all her ingredients but made do nicely and we’ll make this again. Yummy with some carrots put into … Continue reading
I did this thinking I was not going to watercolor it… I think maybe I liked it better that way! This feels is a neverending crisis, made worse by our politicians (yes I am looking at you Kate Brown). The … Continue reading
Image for reference by Debi Taylor. Thought I might leave this as is… Then I didn’t! Not sure I did it any good… I’ve been playing with inks now I have to warm up to go back to watercolors! To … Continue reading

I am finally surfacing after this damn election. I am happy with the (almost) outcome but the close call depressed the hell out of me. Enough so that I didn’t draw after the 30th, when the fear of the future … Continue reading
