This week I came across a photograph of lemons which begged to be sketched. Trying to appear more “painterly”, I aimed for the loose and splattered vibe. (Sorry for the image quality – phone – nighttime.) (via instagram) Then I added “Happy March”. Because it was bright and spring-like and it was March first. March first, people! … Read More

Can you believe it’s MARCH already? Geez the months – years – are flying by right before my very eyes. And I know what you may be thinking. Those damn flowers AGAIN?

I snapped an image with my iPhone yesterday and posted it on Instagram asking, “Is it finished?” Once of my biggest issues when painting is knowing when to walk away.

This is how it started out as a print. BTW, it’s currently available as a hand pulled relief print as well.   Recently, I created this “Be Unique” linocut relief print for my Sketch.Paint.Print challenge.

Instagram image Last week I indulged in me time at the cabin. It was horrible. I wore my pajamas practically the entire time. Read, watched movies and did a little painting.

  Hiya and Happy New Year! I took an extra long break from mid December until last week and am ready to get back to “normal” life. On a personal note, my surgery went very well and now the waiting happens. With any luck, the surgery will have nudged the second phase of this disease … Read More
