I am offering 10% off all orders over $20 in my etsy shop. Also, I just added a few new prints and originals!
I will be doing a big update in my shop this Friday, with new prints and original paintings. I am so excited to share this new work!
Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of art books and trying to be better about keeping a sketch book. I’ve also been trying to devote at least a little time each week to ‘playing’ without worrying about the end result (which is strangely hard to do).

So there is this amazing art project happening, consenses. It’s essentially a grown up, artistic game of telephone. Please, please check it out!
“Each artist extracts the essence of the piece they are provided and uses it as their catalyst for their own creation. Ultimately, this process forms what they’ve termed “Interpretative Chains”: a collective, holistic statement; an intriguing procession from one piece to the next; the revealing of a unique glimpse into the artistic process and the complexity of perception. So far 130 artists from all over the world have participated (none of them know who the other artists are on the project).”
The goal is for it to exhibit this summer, watch and find out more about it and how you can contribute to making it happen!
I have been making new work like crazy, mostly quite large pieces. This series has a lot of overexposed and washed out imagery as it relates to memory. A bit like squinting on a bright day, memories are often abstracted and faded over time . Here are a few, they will be available as prints soon!
Have a wonderful weekend! The fall weather has me lighting candles and huddling down in my studio. I have too many paintings waiting/wanting to be made, which is both amazing and daunting. So many images and ideas floating around in my head, waiting to get out. Ok, so off to get some done! See you next week, perhaps with new work to share…
John Baldessari, I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art, 1971. Lithograph: 22 1/2 × 30 in. here
Observe: my boy taking the best photo booth pics ever and a painting from a few years ago. I didn’t even think of the parallels here until I was uploading pics to my computer. Perhaps some new bow tie boy paintings in the near future?
this shirt (because little known fact, I swear like a sailor)
an advent calendar I can get behind
this dream light
blowing up photo booth pics (perhaps to use as wrapping paper?) found here
and lastly, some of my very favorite things in one room. What you can’t see is how giddy I was upon seeing a whole room of Gerhard Richter paintings in person for the first time, ahhh.
The High Highs ‘Bridge’
Long time no see! Well, this summer has kicked my, well you know. I am a soldier of routine and summer throws that right out the window. The kiddos go back to school in a little over a week and I am so ready to sink back into my beloved routine (aka get more work done!). In the meantime, I have made my latest work available as prints in the shop!
1. watching the world go by outside the car window 2. recent polaroids 3. my lemon tree is blooming (the smell!)
I feel like summer just began and simultaneously is almost over, sigh. The days are full trying to get work done, portraits completed, a site redesign/relaunch and the usual here and there of getting kids to camps and adventures. Oh, and getting the odd vacation and general summer enjoyment in. These are a couple polaroids I took on a recent trip to the beach. I will be back next week with a new site to share! Have a wonderful weekend!
prints coming soon…
Just a quick note to say I just added several originals to my etsy store!
