Great. Now I have Ice Ice Baby stuck in my head. Anyways... after I finally finished the Dot painting I shared with you last week I was hankering to start another project. Eric and I haven't really been focusing on our own artwork since we moved from Gladwin. Now that some of our big house… Continue reading Stop, collaborate and listen…
I did it! I finished my giant Alma Woodsey Thomas inspired piece! Oh man, that one took a while. I was determined to get this piece done by the end of the weekend and now I am happy to say I can check that off my to-do list. Last year when I was teaching art… Continue reading Dot Painting
I have been secretly making Eric's Christmas present for quite a while and I can FINALLY share it with you guys! As artsy fartsy people, we tend to make each other presents. Eric actually gave me the idea for this one. During one dinner he was using one of the puppets to convince Iris to… Continue reading Finally!

And two days later here we are again. Lots going on. Lots. No wait no. The opposite of lots. What I do have to share are a few pieces that I have in progress. I'm working at a lot smaller of a scale this week so I was actually able to design and cut this… Continue reading Fire gone
This week I've been trying to learn how to ink with brushes. The results have been questionable, but I still thought I would share. To get to the finished product though I started with a little draft. So what if it's on the outside of an insurance bill. Paper is paper. After that I… Continue reading Brushes
***Disclaimer! I have been at conferences all evening so I may be a little bit out of it while writing this blog post. Apologies!*** I have always wanted to film some of my weird parody songs that I sing to my students, and today I had the opportunity! This song is dedicated to those kiddos… Continue reading Supplies Song
