wacky summer

I have some exciting news to share. This summer I’m going to the South of France for a painting workshop. I can’t really believe it’s happening. I’m pretty damn excited. One bummer is that it means I’ll be away from Tom for up to three weeks. I haven’t been away from him for more than […]


I am really marvelling at the world today. There are dog treadmills. Do you know that? Take a look at Jog a dog. Also, did you know that if you apply for renter’s insurance, they ask you if you have a dog or a trampolene? I guess there are some risks they just aren’t willing […]

crazy painting

Um, I made a crazy painting. I don’t know if it’s done yet. It’s pretty crazy. I’m kind of embarrassed to show it. But here it is anyway. It’s 30″ x 40″.

good girl

I was a very good girl today. I was really cranky and didn’t want to do some things that I need to do but aren’t very fun. I enjoyed some napping time with Tom which made the icky stuff seem a lot better. I finished a simplified version of Carol’s site so I can teach […]

possible art show and 2nd day of painting class

It makes me want to paint more of them, quick-like. Maybe Sunday I can get some work done. Yesterday’s painting class was […]

painting 140b

I started my painting class yesterday with Glenn Moriwaki at SF City College. I’m so excited. I think it’s going to be a really great class. We are going to end up with 10 paintings this semester. That is a whole lot of paintings. It’s going to be hard work but I’m sure I will […]

Canvases ready

This week is the beginning of the spring semester. I have several canvases primed and ready. I wonder what the semester has in store for me.
