Happy 2011!

I am feeling very lucky………insert smiley face here. I am drawing you one, right now, in the air…… got it??  good!

There are so many things to be thankful for: the joy of making things, painting outdoors, wonderful people, beautiful everyday details, the furs, food, singing, laughter and all that good stuff and junk. Im super grateful for my snappy, recently enlarged studio space (thank you Elise, aka intern, and John bob) It is the perfect spot to hang out with people I enjoy, toss around ideas, try new things, act stupid and make music and art. The only thing that it is lacking is a mini pingpong table, but I can fix that.

here are some pics of  my space all gussied up for the Holiday Open House a few weeks ago.

my dear Elise and her Brian

Have a wonderful and creative and most importantly, FUN new yEAr!

XOXOXO with lOve!!

  2. I love your space…and the black and white polka dot table cloth…adore it…I just bought a bowl that looks the same…and surrounded by so much art and order…oh what fun…happy new year..

  3. Ha! I started my New Year with you! I had not gotten out my Whipples (!) from Silver Bella. But instead of finishing those I got out the two books I have with your work in them, my four little wood canvases from class and went to work on the last page of my first art journal. It is a kindergarten of childhood school pictures ala Ninnie style.

    I thought about you the whole time I layered, outlined and dotted. I could hear your positive voice and laughter from our Silver Bella class.

    Thank you so very much for sharing your work in class. SO generous.

    My work is changed.

  4. Your new space is a Happy place!

    I finally bought a tracing wheel to get those tiny dots on my art work……….Isn’t it crazy what little everyday tools work in some of the most incredible art work! Thanks for sharing.

    Happy New Year to you and your new STUDIO!
