New iPad drawings

March 20, 2012Drawings

For Valentine’s Day I got a new iPad — well actually I had to wait a month before the new iPad came out, but it was definitely worth the wait! The new iPad has a great camera so I’m trying a new process where I take a photo of my sketchbooks with the iPad camera … Read More

Go to Sleep

Go to Sleep

February 4, 2012Photographs

Sleep is a magical, mysterious thing. Magical in the way it happens naturally and revives, rejuvenates, and heals. Mysterious to me because I sometimes wonder where people go when they Go To Sleep. That’s such an odd expression if you really think about it, as if we are indeed going to another place. Where do … Read More

2012 – Year of the Dragon

January 16, 2012uncategorized

A nice surprise came in the mail yesterday – a dragon! 2012 being the year of the Dragon, our Japanese friends Kazuko and Takehiko sent us a beautiful new year’s card and calendar. I love this guy because he’s friendly, comical, happy, fierce, and a little goofy all wrapped into one swirly mist. I’m sure … Read More

Giving Handmade

January 14, 2012Craft

This past year I did pretty well on my goal to give handmade things for Christmas. I’ve sort of lost count but think I knitted about 10 hats, three scarves and a couple of cowls. And of course there were a few hats I knitted more than once or twice because I had to unravel … Read More

Needles and Yarns

December 4, 2011Craft

Last November the First Friday Art Walk was cold and we were planning on documenting the outdoor Nest-rolling Parade, so I bought a hand-knit cap at Good Girl Art Gallery. I like wearing it so much, it’s inspired me to start knitting again. I have lots of yarn sitting around from past undone projects, and … Read More

PaMdora and the Malware Monster

November 24, 2011Blog, Drawings, Tech

Of the many things I’m thankful for today, one is getting my blog back. I’m sorry to all you that have tried to visit in the last couple of weeks and gotten the scary Google warnings. And thanks to everyone who contacted me about them. It’s funny how you can take things for granted, but … Read More

Halloween and Spontaneous Creativity

Halloween and Spontaneous Creativity

October 30, 2011Holidays, Studio

Regardless of what most people thing, Halloween is not just about ghouls and goblins — it’s all about spontaneous creativity. It’s the one time of year that most people think it’s perfectly acceptable to dress up in costumes and become someone or something else and walk around on public streets. Just think about it.
