You can use Gelatos on any porous surface. I've used canvas, paper, cardboard, black paper, any paper really.... Continue reading

We had an energetic Open Studio last Saturday. Loads of creativity, art supplies, fun people and information. I'm sharing some of what came up so that you may pick up a trick or two. Susan was working in her journal. She had a background painted and then began working around... Continue reading

So many of you asked for a journal flip after this post and video about adding extra signatures into your art journal. Here you go! It was a pleasant way to spend some time yesterday. I love this Stillman & Birn journal. The watercolor paper is thick and thirsty. If... Continue reading

LOL, Jess. What a hoot. I know exactly what you mean. In fact, she sounds a little like my aunt. Thanks for sharing that story, it put a big smile on my face.

A beautiful soul she was. And entirely gloriously human. We have many memories as she was such a big part of our lives and I feel blessed to have had her as my role model and moral compass. What Would Aunt Betty Do?

Oh Mary! You are a lovely woman. I agree. Art takes me to a place where time doesn’t exist. It’s where I plan to spend today. And Yeah! See you Saturday!

Thanks, Lynda. Yes, once the pain subsides there is such a comfort in the wonderful memories. And the tears that still come for lost loved ones.
That sounds right but it’s always the last thing on my list. LOL. I’m trying, Thanks Mary

Oh my goodness, Star. You comment touched me very deeply. I went back and read it and added the link to this blogpost. Meeting that woman in Trader Joe’s was one of the most magical moments of my life. Thanks for reminding me!

Jenny, thanks so much. If we can’t see the hurt, it’s difficult to acknowledge. I hope we can all take steps toward healing. I love your ideas! I think that is on my to do list today. Studio Day all day! Yeah!

There is a fabulous scene in the movie Chicago. Richard Gere. as smarmy attorney Billy Flynn, tap dances his version of the facts, around the jury during Roxie's trial: flim flammin' them. Great scene. I feel like I tapdance through life. Diverting with humor, placating with artwork. Through the high... Continue reading
