Proper 20 | Feb







Today’s focus

To the Lake 07 | Feb




My original sketches for this idea were adults, running or walking in water or on the beach in rain. It was too hard to find enough grown-ups to meet in my time line ... so I gathered my kids and their friends! It was spur of the moment - I headed to the thrift store and then the lake. Now, I see it coming together and I love it!

Layer after Layer 06 | Feb




The foreshortening in this piece makes it so values are of the utmost importance. Layer by layer I’ll get there.

This One Shot 07 | Nov








This painting took more prep than any other painting I’ve done. I built my own wall from old wood I found at a antique store, lined a hot tub with black sheets (which is like herding cats, btw) hunted down a WW sea hammock, carried sandbags to hold down the hammock lines, set up lights etc. I had my friend come over when the sun set and then my mom stopped by to hold the wall because the day was incredibly windy and dipped into the 40s. I was so happy to look through the photos and realize I did capture my vision. Just as I wanted. Relief! But to make it even better - I ended up capturing something else... amazing, something I didn’t expect... more on that later.

A beautiful day to create 03 | Nov




Setting up a second space to paint and hang work while it dries. Relieving myself of the anxiety of piling them together in the studio. At some point soon this easel will hold my largest painting - and what I believe will be my most compelling work to date.

Lining the Room 17 | Oct




Lining my studio with messy grisailles. Lots of music, TED and This American Life keeping me in the flow....

Scrapbook 10 | Oct




Who else missed the polaroid when it left the market for years? I’ve always loved them so thankfully they’re back. I’m looking forward to filling scrapbooks with memories of this process...

First Ideas Forming 20 | Sep




Meeting and working with new people is part of the process I enjoy most. Or maybe it's sorting through my favorites and pondering what adventure I will take them on....
