It’s been two weeks now since we got our floors refinished and we’ve finally put everything back. Of course, putting things back isn’t just as simple as it sounds. We decided to take the opportunity to thoroughly clean and give away anything we weren’t using. So that took awhile, but two weeks later we’re finally… Continue reading The Great Floor Refinishing Part 2
Finally the great refinishing happened around these parts. My floors are a mess – my apartment has had a small flood several times since I moved in. First, the skylight leaked like crazy and I was too young and too timid to make a bigger fuss to the building association for the damages. Then, my… Continue reading The Great Floor Refinishing
The past few months (well, the past year) have been so crazy. Work has been really hard, the art ebbs and flows (which is why habit and diligence are so important to build!). I’ve been turning to simpler mediums like watercolor to dash down some color because I’m too tired and busy to go to… Continue reading I’m back! and art intentions
I spent last Thursday and Friday (which was why I was radio silent on Instagram) patching, sanding, painting, cleaning, sorting, organizing, building, craigslisting, and more, so that I finally have the studio of my dreams. I’m so excited – it’s so beautiful. I’m so inspired working in here today, and I’m so lucky I was… Continue reading New studio tour!
Whew, where have I been? This spring felt both like the longest and shortest spring imaginable. While I was in it I kept thinking, “This is taking forever to get to summer,” and now that it’s over, I wonder where all the time went. To kick off blogging I’ll show you a bit of what… Continue reading The Lost Spring
On Friday Rob and I biked downtown to see Art in the Age of the Internet at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. It was a beautiful evening, though a little chilly out on the water. The exhibit was, of course, amazing.
Had a busy past few weeks! Sold my art at an art fair in a small town north of here! I had a great time and talked to some amazing people who really loved and got what I was trying to do with my art. It was awesome! I sold an original painting, and it… Continue reading Art fair, spring walk
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted but in my defense it’s been a whirlwind – unexpected travel for unfortunate circumstances, a ton of hard-hitting news, migraines almost every other day… no thank you, seriously. Can you maybe drop me some good news and no migraines (or at least no news), universe? Maybe just for a… Continue reading Some goings on
Whaddaya know – I’m sick. I think I’m simply fighting off a cold – no deadly flu or anything, just stuffy nose and scratchy throat and so so tired. Anyway I forgot it was Valentine’s Day! I actually really love Valentine’s Day – I love little boxes of candy hearts, interesting chocolates that you don’t… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day! (and free download)
My nephew’s birthday is coming up so I spent some time working on something very special for him. I’ve always wanted to paint a set of paper dolls, and he’s such a sensitive and wonderful little kid who would appreciate a little mini-him that he can dress up and take on adventures! I specifically included… Continue reading A paper doll for a special boy
