Hello ! Right now I’m gearing up for a show in December so I’m in the phase of hoarding ALL THE ART. Because of this, I’m painting primarily on canvas nowadays. (Though I miss my art journal so!) So today I’m working on an 8 x 8 wood canvas. Wood canvases are my FAVORITE for … More Gold Leafing Sacred Geometry
Hello again everyone! This week I opted to work on my Artistcellar project at a favorite local coffee shop! Frank and David joined me, and while they played a game of Magic the Gathering, I sipped coffee and arted to my heart’s content. It’s really fun to create art in places other than my own … More Coffee Shop Creating!
Have you heard about the painted rocks? People paint them and then leave them around for strangers to find? I recently found out it was a “thing” and loved the idea right away!

I’ve been diligently prepping for a new Patreon month, and two shows that are coming up SO FAST. I have to have … More Blog Along in September Day 28
I know it’s actually Monday, but typically this is still my “weekend”…. Except I kinda worked straight through the weekend. I have accomplished SO MUCH that I needed to get done including finishing a story zine that I’ve been working on. It’s the first zine that I will have available to the public, as I … More Blog Along in September Day 25 – Working Through The Weekend
I fell off the wagon as far as blogging every day goes. I’m not apologetic, it is what it is. Shit hit the fan mental-health wise and I just wasn’t feeling it. BUT, back at it today. It’s been a long, long time since I cracked open and art journal and created something in it … More Blog Along in September Day 24
Had to put clowns in the title because I know they’re pretty scary for some. AND THIS ONE IS PRETTY SCARY TOO! Today’s nudge from Effy is showing off without apologizing for it, so here I am being super proud of the painting I completed on Facebook live last night. Typically every Saturday I … More Blog Along In September – Day 17 – Showing Off and Clowns

The vision in my head was so much better than what my hands were capable of making and there was some … More Blog Along in September Day 16 : Comparison
