I took my dog for a walk while thinking about what to name this painting. I considered my belief that we are often better equipped than we think we are. When I pulled into the drive way, I noticed my car was getting cluttered, so were my coat pockets. "Clean... Continue reading

This happened weeks ago. I haven't even been able to articulate the heartbreak of having a painting ruined. I'll never really know how this scratch, forceful enough to remove paint and dent the canvas happened: ill-attended child, clueless backpack, psycho hater? It doesn't matter really because when I went to... Continue reading

I am honored to be included in this event in Pittsburgh, curated by Vicky Clark and created by artist, Meredith Driscoll. For me, supporting Planned Parenthood goes beyond abortion debates or even women's health. Curator Vicky Clark expresses it well when asked about working on this show. "Recently someone asked...

There is much written about finding time and energy to explore what you love. This piece touches on the opposite extreme. How do we switch off, when we truly love what we do? How do we navigate the worth of projects in a business that is speculative and a culture... Continue reading

I saw this shared a few times and finally decided to "snopes" it since it seemed too perfectly awful. It's true and it wasn't that long ago. I laughed but must admit it hit a nerve. How many corporately branded, product pushing, "shoulds" do I still listen to, or force... Continue reading

A wise woman once told me she sees art life as a spiral, rather than a linear journey. My spiral has been expanding, circling out, encompassing more people and providing a base for exploring my word for 2015, "foundation". I feel my spiral reversing itself as the days get shorter....

I copied this directly from Merriam Webster Dictionary. How it will manifest remains to be seen but all iterations of the word apply. If you need to find me, I'll be on Facebook and here is my Etsy Store. Hoping to make changes to this site based on something solid.... Continue reading

I just got a dozen 8" x 8" canvases that are reserved for animals. Plenty of people have a special affinity for certain creatures and are looking for cool gift ideas, so this will be my holiday project. I know everyone can't afford a commission but I'm happy to take... Continue reading

Kids are sick, big push for the opening has passed, it is 100 degrees and I am down. It was expected. Even though I thought maybe this time I would avoid it, I always have post event funk to manage. Fellow DANK artist, Kathy Frey, and I are going to... Continue reading

I had an unexpected trip yesterday. Greg texted, "pick up Sabrina from my office" while I was working out. Apparently she flipped out about her shoes when it was time to go on a field trip to the Folsom Zoo. But as is often the case with kids, the thing... Continue reading

Don't worry Syl! I'm okay. I think the cold coming on just made me extra tired.

Tuesday it all felt like too much and unexpected tears were trembling on the cusp of falling at the slightest prompt. I think a lot of people have those days right? Where you didn't even know you were overwhelmed until it is too late and you're crying in a coffee... Continue reading

No matter what you think you can accomplish, life happens. I believe all the pep, vim, vigor and life affirming memes in the universe won't get me over the finish line of a worthwhile goal without some drooling and perhaps an ugly cry or two. So you may not see... Continue reading

My friend Erin was kind enough to guest blog today. I often rely on her for reality checks in the virtual world. She is either perfectly calm and balanced, ready to talk me off a ledge, or just as freaked out as I am. Either way, it works perfectly. We... Continue reading

I'm heading in to the final week and it is so temping to fall back into old diet habits. I don't mean the pizza and wine fridays but the little tricks I've collected over the years to "suck weight" as the wrestlers say. I'm lingering between 9-12 pounds depending on... Continue reading

I completely and totally forgot to post to my blog yesterday. I've got good news, bad news and great news. Good News. Finished this painting and it is available on eBay now. Starting bid only .99. I even made a little video with some shots of the lake yesterday. Luckily... Continue reading

On deadline to get a painting done for tomorrow, I scrambled all yesterday to get my work in order and plans for the next show locked down. So smart of me to carve out this day for quiet, solitary studio work! I woke up early, got my gym clothes on... Continue reading
