and she would leave her fingerprints on anything.

and everything. 

a little dna.

left behind as a secret and part of her visual story. 

to be shared with those looking, watching.

happy friday.

sometimes you need to be willing to take work apart to get to something better. 

had worked on this coffee filter; even hand sewing on this vintage picture- only to rip apart.

i have a few things in the works and this theme is resonating throughout.

taking the good things, and leaving the rest behind to get to something better.

working hard to get to the next steps.....

stay tuned. big things coming.

happy wednesday.

courage.... {show up}

creativity takes courage- Henri Matisse

i have still been thinking about the class i taught recently and how truthful this statement really is. 

all those people had huge courage to try new things. new concepts. new colors. new techniques.

courage to collage. to paint over. to write on.

today i encourage you to try something new. glue something down that you wouldn't have used. spray some ink on that.... and if you can, sew on something- even some little hand sewing.

find your courage. show up in your space. just create.

life has been busy. waiting for a moment of calm to feel the paint on my fingers and use my small stabilo pencil to draw into the wet paint.

move it. smear it. tone it.

it is a bit dull; and yet can and will be sharpened. 


happy friday.

coffee filter..... {painted}

had a great time procrastinating and painting up a coffee filter.

stenciled, painted, wrote on, collaged, and even a little fabric and sewing.

happy friday.

mini..... {polka dot goodness}

playing in my mini art journal that i made with found papers in my studio. this particular page happened to be a bit too thin, and managed to stick to the next page.

the poor thing tore of course, when i tried to separate the pages.

but, i am perfectly ok with that. 

it is what is. 

and it is part of this book's charm.

happy wednesday.
