a new mama with 2 daughters painting ~ upcoming art fair event

This past month found me studying cave art from 17,000 years ago in France and Argentina (in prep for an art lesson in my sons’ classes). What attracted me to the cave art, was not the paintings of bulls and deer, it was the human handprints… The fact that human beings stood on that spot and […]

You know how some emotions can crack open our hearts after we’ve been doing the mundane-day-to-day for too long?

the “done” list ~ a new mermaid painting

Inspiration from Jurgen Wolff: If your days seem to disappear, start a “done” list to find out where they go. I use a to-do list, daily, but things come up that aren’t on the list. At the end of busy days I wonder where the time went… Not very many of the items on my list have […]
