Where I create

This is me…

Posted on Updated on

…most every day you’ll find me sat or sprawled out here on my giant chair with Emily setting the tone for the moment (generally on top of me)…

See, I go out and I socialize with the peoples, to varying degrees of success, then I come home wiped.

Then I chill here with my girl.

Then I go paint on something until I feel better…

Ciao!

Every day…

The things we do every day form our lives.

I drive 1 (one) mile home for lunch most days.

1) I get away from the peopling I have to do for work

2) I spend time with Emily (who loves my company)

3) I generally make time to work on some art.

I can throw some paint down in many different places, on different surfaces then walk away as it needs to dry and I have to head back to the library…because SOMEONE has to earn the money for the kibble, amiright Emily?

So…back into the fray…

And so it begins…

This my new toy:

I am taller than this thing…

But when I want to paint the bottom:

Heh.

I took my 2nd nephew to the Pirate Festival at the waterfront.

We had a Turkey leg and people watched…

I got henna just cuz I hadn’t yet. I have much ink, so this isn’t too much commitment for me…

And I was watching Despicable Me 3 when the power went off, so…

Do I ROCK a Saturday night, or what?

April showers…

I spent 2 Saturdays mornings in April at the same place: Moschetti’s

It’s a local coffee roaster that has free coffee tastings every good Saturday, and Such. Great. Coffee.

It’s a great place to meet up with other local folks, maybe check out some art & crafts from vendors…

For me, it’s a great place to hang out, and ART my face off!

I’m working on Journal 52 2018 (I’m always behind, but I do like the prompts fromEffy for J52)…

I’m currently finishing up my postcards for iHanna’s Spring swap

These are this year’s models…extra long cards and a set of kid’s stencils got me started this year…

I played with paint…at the time, EVERYBODY was just pie-eyed about quinacridone nickel azo gold, so…

I had fun with more washi tape than any one person will ever need…really…

And gel pens…

And paint pens…

Pitt brush pens…

Magazine clippings…

Ink…

More gel pens…

Time & travel…

And a TINY bit of attitude…

I’m sending these in tomorrow’s mail…2 for Canada, one for Denmark, and the rest in the states, but none in California (where I am).

Truly, iHanna is GOOD…

Where I paint:

Posted on Updated on

I have a room full of art supplies, but my art table is in my living room. There is more room out here, I listen to music while I make the art, and the cats are more comfortable out here.

I spent a few hours today, cleaning up just this area:

3.

Hours.

To transform the space to THIS:

Yep.

No difference, you say?

Nah.

Cleaner is cleaner, even if it doesn’t show in the photos…

I’m off to paint in that big stack of books…
