Long time

Hi. It’s been a while. I have put painting my dots on the back burner while navigating other things in my life. But, as one of my personal heroes, Patti Smith, said, creativity is a boomerang. If it’s in you, it’ll always come back. So, here goes. I’m putting these babes out into the world.

For those of you who have been around for awhile, you may notice an increase in my pricing. It’s always been hard for me to assign a dollar amount to what I make, it feels really weird. But, as I get older, every minute of my life holds increasing value. These pieces take a bit of time to make. This, along with input from dear peeps, has led to this price shift.

If you see something you like, please let me know. I have PayPal, I’m willing to get Venmo. I am trying this avenue before putting them up on Etsy. Please email me at if you are interested, if you would like to see more pictures, or if you’d just like to reach out and say hi.

As always, thanks for looking.

Thanksgiving Hang

Had a great Thanksgiving with my friends this year.  It was certainly a sweet surprise when I went to pour myself a glass of wine and saw that my dear peeps Jacqui and Jeff hung up a piece of mine they’d recently purchased. Yay!

If you’re interested, click on the image below to check out my Etsy site.  I still have a few pieces for sale and I’m about to add a few more.  They make unique, reasonably priced gifts.

Hearty thanks,

Hey…you, Summer. Thanks for your time.

Hi there.  Thanks so much for checking in!

Summer vacation is coming to a close.  Ugh.  I feel so spoiled being on this school schedule, but dang!  Can I just have like two more weeks? I start kicking it into full gear this time every year, a desperate attempt to cross stuff of the lofty list I drew up on the first day of summer vacation.  But, it’s 1 in the afternoon here in Seattle and I’m taking a break from putting lines through words on paper and I’m toasting summer with an early in the day Bitburger beer.  Won’t get too many chances like this starting next week, I have to make most.  

So, thank you summer, for blessing me with time.  Time to reconnect with old (like haven’t seen in 20 years, old) friends, the time to nurture new relationships, and the time to laze about in coffee shops and have urban adventures with my bosom peeps. Thanks for the time to enjoy weekday 8am yoga classes that are almost totally empty (Hell. Yes.). The time to watch the series True Blood in its entirety (totally not ashamed). The time to focus my energies on quitting old, bad habits and beginning new, healthy ones (I high five myself).  The time to feel the hot, hot, humid heat of Illinois (um, loathe) and the time to feel the swell of a thunderstorm (only one, lame!).  The time to be with my family, time for cracking up and reminiscing and celebrating with my family.  Time to take an afternoon nap with Tues, my 18 year old cat every now and then.  Lastly, and certainly not the most important, but the reason why this blog exists I guess, the time to paint.  

Well, here you’ll find pictures (and links) of the tangible things my summer of time has provided.  Thanks again for indulging me by reading the laundry list above and looking at the biz below.  

This is how I work.  Always.

Soon things.

tiny adventures. and painting. and a dog.

Hey there.  Summer is upon us! School’s out! For me, this means late night coffee, the occasional way-before-five cocktail, walking my errands instead of driving them, forgetting what day of the week it is, the discovery of True Blood, tiny adventures and lots of time for painting.   Highlighting the last two here: Tiny adventures.  This morning I was fortunate enough to take a skiff from Guemes Island to  Jack Island  (click on the link for more info). Just a quick trip, coffee in hand, wearing a super-cool PFD and a borrowed down jacket.  Placid water, salty air, quiet.  Heaven times.  I’ve spent this day dreaming and scheming ways to get myself a little boat.  Just a skiff, nothing fancy.  I am way too damn happy floating on calm water, dipping into little places that your feet and your car can’t get you to alone, to not be in charge of my own small vessel.  Here are a few shots from my morn:

I’ve been painting lots.  Here are a few pictures of the pieces that are ready to go, but I’ve got several more in the works.  Detailed photos (of the pieces below) can be found on my Etsy site – click the link below each picture if you’re interested in seeing more.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this blog.  Here’s to a playful summer, from me and Jack the Dog.

Jack the Dog & I wish you playful summer times.

Lavon’s pre-carved commission…

Hello.  This is the second commission for my friend Lavon.  I regret that I didn’t take a before picture of the little, carved wooden box she brought to me a few months ago.  Here’s the after, held by the ever lovely, Lavon.


Here’s a little detail:


Thanks again.  More to come, and happy summertimes.

Special p-patch delivery.

Met my friend Nicole at her p-patch garden.  I brought her the little bowl she picked out for her dad and I left with a bag of sugar snap peas.  Nice.  Thanks, Nicole!
