Pumpkin Ice Cream

A dozen little scoops of Pumpkin Cones are in the works.
Who says you can't buy happiness...

Serving up fresh at the American Folk Art Festival in September. 

Decision 2016

A million outcomes run through my head the moment before painting begins, bringing a piece to life. ~ whimsical, primitive, traditional, playful, spooky? These endless choices can at times be paralyzing but I am learning, always learning to trust the creative process and enjoy these moment of stillness and embrace the uncertain beginnings.

April Showers

It's been a rainy pumpkin carving kind of day. This gloomy weather is just what I needed to finally keep me indoors and focused on my showtime production schedule. You would think that my massive to-do list and looming deadlines would be enough of a motivator but for reasons I can't explain it took a dewy day like today and some dark chocolate to put me back on track. I'm pretty sure that I can safely say, without a doubt, from this day forward serious mischief making has begun. By this time next month my studio will be overflowing with completed projects... 
well, pretty sure or maybe that's just the dark chocolate talking. 

Work in Progress Theater Production

Oh my stars! 
Such drama today while working on this theatrical production. 
The star wants center stage but the moon will not be phased. 
What to do?

Center Stage

No need to wait for your moment in the spotlight... shine from within.

Seasonal Time Change

The calendar may say Springtime but looming Fall Season showtime schedules bring pumpkins into full bloom around here and I couldn't be happier.
