I know, it’s Monday, but here’s my sketchbook from Paris. My niece met me there after my week in the Netherlands and we spent our time walking around and taking in everything we could. Also eating. Lots of eating. If you want to see the Netherlands sketchbook, it’s here. As […]

Sunday Sketches: Meet Me In Paris!


Last year, I was invited to Holland to teach a three day masterclass in watercolor on claybord. You may remember the story from here. via GIPHY It was better than I could have imagined. Margo made me feel so welcomed. I didn’t have to think about anything other than teaching. […]

Watercolor Workshop In Holland








1
On my first trip with other artists, I learned the habit of buying a sketchbook from every place I go. I never use those sketchbooks while I’m in said place. It’s just nice having a little reminder when I use it later. It’s a nice way to interweave memories. Sketchbooks […]

The Best Kind of Souvenirs


I went through a few older sketchbooks for this post. Some are from years ago and some are from this year. I’m still working on my sketches from Holland and Paris.

Sunday Sketches




The weather is absurd. It’s so windy I rescheduled lunch plans and refuse to leave my house. Gusts up to 50mph. I feel like I’m back in New Mexico. With my newly freed afternoon, I thought I’d scan in some sketches. I bought a very nice leather sketchbook on my […]

Sunday Sketches



This is the beginning of a new series titled That Face When... The moment I saw Ms. Clinton make this face, I knew I wanted to do a series of powerful women with "that face." The face women make when they just have to sit there and let a man get it out of his system.

New Work



I have thought about just using it as a way to finish up paintings I've already started since that's allowed. However, I only have 7 of those. I do have at least 3 paintings to start next, but there's no way I will finish them in one day a piece.

To 30 in 30 or Not?


I know, it’s not art related, but it kind of is. As a creative person, it’s easy to get bogged down and forget to take a minute to make sure I’m doing ok. This topic has been on my mind for quite a while and it has definitely picked up […]

Self-Care Saturday


TRACE. Allow me to explain, please. Every time I go on a social media platform and look at the art pages/subs/groups, inevitably someone asks about projectors and people lose their freaking minds. It’s absurd. They never answer the question. All they do is gang up on the poor soul who […]

To Trace Or Not To Trace?



I finally decided to commit to this book several months ago. I started by just doing the morning pages (3 pages hand-written every morning, conscious thought) for a month or two, then I decided to dive in to the rest. Tomorrow is the start of week 12 and it is […]

The Artist’s Way





It seems every artist has read this book. It’s been on my shelf since college. 9-11 years.  I haven’t read it. Well, I’m trying to get into the habit of the Miracle Morning routine. I love it. But I also love laying in bed and looking at Facebook until Gunnar […]
