Bugs on black


I LOVE to paint and somehow with just a few days until October my garden continues to bloom & buzz with all sorts of intriguing insects!

We took our annual trip to the orchard over the weekend.  I always look forward to this.  There wasn't many apples left on the the trees this year and the harvest looked low.  When we started out the day it was grey which made the few red apples left on the trees really pop.  Then the sun came out to stay.

I took lots of pictures and all the ones with my boys (Antonio & Luca) made me laugh.  They couldn't look less enthused!  I'm grateful for the years they've let me drag them around from one seasonal outing after another. 


 We'll go back next year & hopefully they'll look a little happier!

On my mind...


Who captures your imagination?

I like making art that gives people an opportunity to tell someone special that they care about them.

This art was licensed for cards & I hope it helped someone feel warm & appreciated.

Deep breath in deep breath out.


Friday sigh!

I sigh a lot... & find it really helps.

(I stress easily)

Somewhere between here & there.

I like how this gouache painting hints at the subtle seasonal shifts we see this time of the year.

Farewell Summer


Saying goodbye to summer is bittersweet!

This sketchbook spread is a scene from a favorite memory this summer.
We twisted and turned our way down a tight mountain road that led us to the medieval town— Tossa de Mar on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.  It was one of those days that captures your imagination! ✴
Here's a closer look.


                Hope you had a beautiful summer and some days that left your heart warm & happy. 💛
