There are many artists that I admire. One is Laolu. How he carries a story with symbolism and contrast is just epic. Another artist I love is David H. Dale. My sister and I had the chance to ‘study’ in his studio for a short time a long time ago. He introduced us to watercolor … More Heart Rock…
Happy New Month, everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Easter. Mine was busy as I was making some postables from some of the hearts I made for my Queen of Hearts Project like the one featured in this postable.

Happy new month. March came in quickly and didn’t come alone. Snow and chilly winds got me all snuggly in bed as I watched the Ten Commandments and Prince of Egypt for like the 100th time for each.

And it was a grand plan and I started off strong, drawing out my feelings, feeling like the most accomplished artist that … More ‘The Heart of Man Is Very Much Like The Sea…’
It feels like kismet, you know. The very first post about my year long project is on Valentine’s day. For a long time, it seemed like I had a love hate relationship with val’s day. I only really started enjoying val’s day when I stopped hoping and wishing for this fairytale love story to happen … More Happy Valentine
