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 am off to Monterey this morning with Layla. We are leaving a day early to meet her 2/3 grade class at the aquarium where we will spend the night, but first a stay in a nice hotel. It is about a 4 hour drive and for a minute I... 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

Spent the day in town meeting, planning and looking for new perspectives. Mark your calendars for April 4. You're all invited. Details to follow. Don't even ask what this unrelated detail from a piece of work I did is about. Really, don't ask. Continue reading

I keep saying I'm not going to do those stupid quizzes that tell you what kind of snack food, punk icon, type of shoe you are. Then I see other's results and I wonder..."Am I living in the right state?" (yes) "What should I have done in High School?" (Student... Continue reading

The last few weeks have been about lying scales and the figuring that goes along with them. Dropping at the rate of 1 or 2 pounds a week, like "you should" (whatever, I want it to come off in CHUNKS!) scales are never to be trusted. Good news doesn't count:... Continue reading

You should have heard the white hot rage and frustration in my head yesterday. My croc pot, whom I love, wasn't even spared the cursing I usually reserve for the mismatched container/lid extravaganza going on beneath the counter. Today is better. I regrouped with some art friends, talked about things... Continue reading

Is it better not to say how it really is? I'm not sure. I sometimes think gratitude, the north star of the enlightened mind, can be a trap. Someone always has it worse, be grateful and shut up. This is a bad picture of a painting that I like very... Continue reading

Mercury is in retrograde. At least that is what I hear and my keys have been missing since Friday. My husband is melting like Frosty in a greenhouse and I'm trying not to be jealous. I'm down 9 pounds, solid steady, the way it is supposed to be, pounds. I... Continue reading

Have you ever had one of those weekends where you decide to clean one little section of the house and, like pulling a thread on a sweater, the whole shebang comes unraveled and you decide to put it back together but this time...better, faster, stronger? That was our weekend. Yes,... Continue reading
