Busy Much?

Oh no, not at all. I have been quite content to lounge around while these paintings, drawings, and custom hoops make themselves. Never mind all that silly “work” that doesn’t at all keep me busy from 8-5. It is as it is though. And I wouldn’t want it any other way. I somehow manage to…

Sunday Afternoon

On Sunday, Shaun took the kids to the farm to visit Great Oma, and I had the entire afternoon to myself. And goodness that was nice! The weather was absolutely beautiful, perfect for painting on the back deck. I don’t get to be outside as much as I’d like, since I work full time. But…

What I’d Like For Mother’s Day

I recently discovered Alisa Burke and I seriously adore her blog. It’s just so lovely and full of creative inspiration. She offers a lot of online art classes that I’ve had my eye on for a while, and right now they’re all $10 off for Mother’s Day. I thought I’d share these real quick just…

Glasses Girl

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, to turn my watercolor illustrations into hoop art. I mentioned it to Shaun once, a long while ago, and that’s about as far as that went. Fast forward an undetermined amount of time.. Last night I sat down in the middle of my art room…

Finished Painting

I posted a little sneak peek of this painting a while back, so I figured I should probably share the finished piece. There are a lot of fun textural details in this painting that I just couldn’t capture on film. (Can you still say ‘on film’ when it’s a digital camera?) I really like how…

“Link and Zelda and Tardis Party”

I figured since I’m all blogging again and whatnot, I should probably share some pictures from Flynn’s birthday party! Because it was awesome. Just like last year’s party, only with Dr. Who! Shaun and I had a lot of fun planning this party. I mean, a “Link and Zelda and Tardis” party? How could we…

DIY Watercolor Stationary

I have a slight obsession with all things stationary related. I’m not allowed to walk past the notebook section. (My own personal rule, haha!) For years I kept looking for the perfect tiny notepaper for sending along thank you notes when I sell paintings. I bought some blank cards that I really like, but it…

Painting with Juniper

On Friday night, I asked Juniper what she would like to do and she picked ‘paint with Mommy’. (I love when she picks that.) We recently inherited a little white table from my office. It’s supposed to be a coffee table, but we put it in Juniper’s room. She LOVES that little table. It has…

Lunch Break Painting

Here is a little peek at my latest painting. I’m really having fun with this one! (Do I say that about every painting?) I’ve been experimenting with more of a ‘watercolory’ look. Drop a bit of paint here and there and let it go where it wants. I have always admired people who can actually…

Borededness

I shared an in-progress shot of this painting a couple of weeks ago, and I wasn’t happy with how it was turning out. I thought I should probably post the finished piece. I’m happy to say that I do like it now that it is done. Andrea of Little Fawn Photography recently posted the gifts…
