I know I won’t be able to keep up with the one-a-day watercolor, but when I do them I enjoy them! These took me way back to being a kid in the 60’s, avocado and orange and pop-culture flower power! … Continue reading

Berries in pretty blue glasses! What could be better? Okay, we added a little vanilla bean ice cream in one serving and that was good too! Ink painting, mostly Robert Oster inks, and Hoping Charlie will be okay with ink-painting: … Continue reading
I support our local small art stores 99% of the time; This week reminded me of WHY I shop small business, and why YOU SHOULD TOO. I have used Golden Gesso many times in my life, but never paid attention … Continue reading
Walk to the market from the studio. A fire hydrant with a tree growing round it…. I want them to retire the hydrant not touch the tree! And this ends another World Watercolor Month! My takeaway from this year is … Continue reading
Waiting for Mitchell at the KP optometrist, after I picked up my glasses. We can see our studio from the window, though it is too tiny to draw! Don’t forget: I’m giving away to TWO lucky winners my favorite middle-of-the-night … Continue reading
*Warning, this is not a happy post! A roller-coaster ride is more accurate.* All through World Watercolor Month I’ve been writing like I haven’t in years. I had so much to be upset about, and then on the heels of … Continue reading

This blueberry is symbolic of things I can’t share — but still a watercolor a day! Writing a book… some things you don’t want to trot out toooo early! Don’t forget: I’m giving away to TWO lucky winners my favorite … Continue reading
I wrote on Rosh Chodesh about the massive changes that are happening in our lives, our family, and the world. Pages of writing and unfortunately nothing I feel comfortable sharing. I am far more likely to share my “stuff” that … Continue reading
