I have decided to do more posting on Instagram rather than my blog. I'm not giving up the blog, but it will likely be for longer writing pieces. The Instagram is a way for me to start formulating my thoughts.... Continue reading

The End of Painting. I tried to quit once before, but I got sucked back in. This time I mean it. Paint is merely for a bit of tinting, like watercolor. But no more. And no more of all the... Continue reading

I finally found a good Mahjong game app. I had it first on my Kindle, and have now downloaded it to my phone. It is similar to the one that used to come with Microsoft, which was my very favorite... Continue reading

I swear I thought I didn't have any draft blog posts! This Mermaid painting is a Suzi Blu Project. She's pulling her dark hair forward from the back. Because I still have dark hair way in the back, dark like... Continue reading

We recently celebrated our 20th Anniversary, and Symon turned Five. The last five years have been difficult, after what I call The Crash, when we crashed our lives by moving to the Chicago area. These three blog posts have been... Continue reading

It occurred to me recently that what I want to do with my artwork, putting many elements together, is Collage. Not with photographs or magazine images or old advertisements or whatever else comes to mind when I think of "Collage."... Continue reading

I have several projects in progress. This is a watercolor face I did a few weeks ago. I haven't managed to get back to my watercolors since then. I did some Art Journaling in my Planner, but then decided I... Continue reading

I finally finished a series of pages in my Butterfly Journal Two. It is taking way longer than I thought to fill up and finish the book. I think out of the six panels in this fold-out piece, the Friends... Continue reading

This was supposed to be a watercolor Suzi Blu exercise, but I didn't have watercolor paper yet. Stonehenge doesn't make good watercolor paper. I started layering with colored pencil, as Suzi does. The stage above was my favorite stage of... Continue reading

I needed a second collapsible orts box (tutorial here). I have one, but I wanted another one, so I could have one in my small sewing tin and one in my large sewing container. It ended up taking three tries... Continue reading

Showing Symon in some of his favorite places. He loves the vantage point from the sliding glass doors in the bedroom. Sometimes he's in Stealth Mode, sometimes not. He loves to nap on the Pooh blanket. Many Twitter friends love... Continue reading

I tried many things with my artwork that didn't work in 2015, which seems to be how I have spent the past several years, especially since moving to Bloomington. I gave up paint and color and tried to work only... Continue reading

2015: Things got better. The beginning of last year was awful. Late 2014 Steve was worried that the machine shop where he worked was going to shut down. My brother recommended a very small machine shop, so Steve interviewed and... Continue reading

The second thing that I did in Austin Kleon's Steal Like an Artist Journal was drawing at the movies in the dark. When we saw Star Wars again on New Year's Day. I drew in the notebook during the Previews,... Continue reading

We both got a copy of Austin Kleon's Steal Like an Artist Journal. I flipped through the journal and I knew that I had to begin with the Obituary. For the part of me that just died, via the grieving.... Continue reading

I have been reading the painter Eric Fischl's memoir, Bad Boy, My Life On and Off the Canvas. It's been an interesting book to read just now. I checked it out of the IU Library (now that I know how... Continue reading

I've had a Secret Project I've been working on, for a Twitter friend. Remember the Rubber Duckies? One of my Twitter friends, Hana, does watercolor paintings of the cats that we post to Twitter. She did the most darling painting... Continue reading
