A Postcard from Venice

A Postcard from Venice

Bright Yellow Fruit Salad

Bright Yellow Fruit Salad

I like yellow. Not mellow yellow, but the bright sunshiny kind. It’s irresistible! Like fruit salad. Also irresistible. Plus, easy to make. Just chop any fruit up, mix together in a bowl and eat. Summer desert, or winter thrill. And yellow fruit salads are extra yummy, don’t you think? Related PostsIntroverted & Creative goes together […]

Arting in the Art Journal

Arting in the Art Journal

Wool Owl Parade

Wool Owl Parade

In the beginning of this year I talked about the firstborn owl, and now it’s autumn again and the rest of the gang feel safe to come out of the forest to show of their gray wool feathers… They’re all made out of felted sweaters, knitted in thick gray wool once upon a time. Hand […]

I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work. Pearl S. Buck Hello Thursday and hello dear series of dragonfly collages (continuing from this collage). And hi there blues! Yes, that’s right. Blue! Blue as in blue colors, not the […]

Book of Patterns

Book of Patterns

The desire to do something because you find it deeply satisfying and personally challenging inspires the highest levels of creativity, whether it’s in the arts, sciences, or business. Teresa Amabile One of the themes in my current Art Journals are patterns. The past two years I’ve, without consciously thinking about it, created a lot of […]
