Game of Thrones

 A black winged harbinger of Fall joined me for lunch. She had no problem letting me know that this was her throne and that I was a welcomed guest... as long as I had a crumb or two to share.

Summer Solstice


First day of Summer... woohoo! Time to slow down and make some noise. 
Countdown to Fall has begun!

Sometimes the first step towards getting somewhere begins on tippy toes.

Work, work, work.

Sometimes you can just tell it's going to be one of those kinda days.

Super Tuesday

Frightened by the unsettling political climate?

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

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.  

Mother's Day

A small collection of found trinkets, gifts from Mother Nature tucked into a fluted rustic basket 
in celebration of Mother's Day.
