A little note...

You are the cat's MEOW! (it's true)

Cut Paper

Playing with some cut paper on a beautiful Friday afternoon.
I've been hearing some other artist saying they don't really use or like purple lately.
Um, What?  I love a deep, rich purple, endless possibilities!  So deep & inviting makes me want to jump in! (like blue water)

The root of joy is GRATITUDE. 
I'm feeling it!

Is this thing real?

She's pretty sure she's made a new friend!
We walk by this mosaic bear daily & she always stops to greet, sniff & study.

A Peek Inside My Mind

I made a NEW blurb book to send to a client I've dreamed about working with.
It arrived earlier today but it's already been packaged
back up & is headed to California. (lucky book)
This is the first time I've had some of my newer work bound together in one spot. I'm really visual so it was fun to see & I felt a certain power holding it in my hands.
So grateful I get to draw, design, paint & make each day.  
I can't imagine any other way I'd like to spend my time!

Book Recommendation

The super talented Jennifer Orkin Lewis has a NEW book out with Abrams Press.
Draw Everyday Draw Every Way is a creative journal with written prompts & suggested mediums broken down in monthly increments.  The book is a journey through a year of exploring your own creativity.

This is a spread I recently worked on in the white & gold pen section.
The prompts Jennifer provides are great.  Particularly, after a long day.  You can just sit down without thinking too much & play.

Visited Grinter's sunflower field in Kansas yesterday.  Such a magical place!
Wore my sparkles to see the sunflowers!
