It occurred to me that while the paint is drying on one canvas, I could begin another. That is what I have done. These two pieces have a relationship. They look better to me in real life than they do in the photos. As I look at them, a story is beginning to suggest itself. […]
I knew I wanted to write today, so I thought about it and then got nervous. I got myself a little worked up about what to write. Now I seem to be writing about the process of thinking and worrying about writing. Is it supposed to work this way? Dreams are the New Reality In […]
In the Cat Room I don ‘t have an art studio. I have a cat room. I could easily use that as an excuse to not make art, but I have other excuses like not having enough time or not being good enough. I’m getting too old for these excuses. If I don’t get to work […]
I continue to work on these two. I find myself just doing what feels right. Some flecks of pink might come next.

I think I have a pretty good design sense. I can arrange beads in a pleasing way and make a nice looking necklace or bracelet. What I don’t have is solid jewelry making technique. My goal is to improve. I’ve gotten a little better as of late. I conquered my fear of using eye pins […]
