sign language

just when you're feeling your paint palette has
a little too much blah and too much blue....

i'm here to remind sweet, artful you.....

that you are a shining star, 
a-okay awesome, 
and majorly magnificent.....

and the signs are all around you to confirm it!

{p.s. and rock, fabulous art-girl!!}

stand up eight

i've been on a path to better watercolor the past couple of years,
and that means practice, practice, practice.
but i've noticed that after all that practice, 
some days (actually many days!) it doesn't seem to look much better!

so i decided to switch gears and open my long-lost walls notebook.... 

....and remind myself of some really good advice:

if at first you don't succeed....

try, try again!

looks like it's time to get my paintbrush back out.....
but oh, how i love my walls notebook!!

you can see more entries in my walls notebook here

an artsy 2018 to you!

happy 2018!  

i've been thinking about some of the fun things that 
i'd like to accomplish this year.....

some of those things are related to art,
and some....well, not so much.
(but spoiling my sweet grandson sounds like so much fun,
even if it's not art related!  :))

but whatever i end up doing,
i'll always try to follow my heart.....

because when i follow my heart,
i always end up in the most wonderfully unexpected places!


i hope your artsy heart leads you 
to all kinds of fabulous, creative stuff
this beautiful new year!!

elliot lee

about two weeks ago, 
something happened to me 
that's never happened before.....

a sweet little blessing that weighs almost 9 pounds....

came into my life and has completely stolen my heart!
(and i'll let him keep it forever!)

meet Elliot Lee, my very first grandchild!!
(oh my gosh, he is SO precious!!)
