Yay! Getting pretty close to done. What do you think?
Tom sent me a link to this site where people can design t-shirts and they get voted on. If they are popular enough, they get made into real live t-shirts. Kinda like pinnochio. Threadless.com. I instantly fell in love with a robot t-shirt that says “I heart destroy.” So I guess I’m now the proud […]
Happy weekend time. Yesterday I painted 20 paintings at the same time. Neat huh? My art/craft sale thing is on the 23rd, not much time left. Next week I will be cranking away on these 20 paintings. Next Wednesday is the Artspan Auction at California Modern on Market between 6th and 7th. Are you going? […]
Here is the beginning of a painting inspired by the website SaveToby.com. I call it “Wash up before dinner.” I saw this website last night and I just about fell on my face. The story goes: a man decided to ask for $50,000 by June 30th in exchange for sparing a very cute bunny’s life. […]
I went out 4 days in a row. Pretty incredible for me. Now I feel awful and I don’t want to drink for a while. The duck in my liver is very angry. Friday I don’t think I did one thing I thought I was going to do, but still, I got lots done. I […]
I sorta slept in but still got up before Tom, who has a job, so I don’t feel very accomplished in that department. Next on the agenda is to take photos of some paintings, then I will walk down to market and do a gallery stroll. I am finally going to make it to the […]
Check out the photos from the March Sparkanzoo Craft Sale. I will be selling small paintings, help pastels, cards and hats at the one on April 23rd so mark your calendars.
It’s the last day of classes before Spring break. This makes me a very happy girl. We are having a critique on our latest assignment of alternative surface and memory/autobiography. I am showing off my dinosaur today. Then tonight I’m off to Western Civ class for a final lecture before the break. I get my […]

Hi, Amy Ruppel is having an online art sale today of her small encaustics $80 – $100. We own two of them and we like ’em! So go buy one.
I’m getting over a cold. It mostly just made me really cranky and mad. Now I seem to be mostly ok. Today was busy for being so sniffly. I painted my dinosaur. Here he is in just newspaper. As of now he is covered in paper pulp and painted in a patchwork of pinks, blues […]
The weekend is going too fast. I had a 6 hour class yesterday, then tom and I went around the neighborhood for drinks and snacks and watched Sean of the Dead. Today we went to a baby shower in Menlo Park. I’m now trying to work on my homework for next Saturday’s class. I don’t […]
Exciting craft flea market! I can’t do it this month but I’m hopinh I can next month. Sadly, I can’t even go to this one. I have class every Saturday in March. Sparkanzoo’s Flea Market
I have so many paintings forming in my head and no time to paint them. I feel like I’m going to burst. Still, I’ll be able to start another one outside of the class assignment on Tuesday since it’ll take the class a while to get organized. You know what’s cool? 1970’s suburbs, cows and […]
I can’t seem to get motivated to get any work done today. I slept in until 11:30. We had a pretty late night. We saw Nada Surf at the Great American Music Hall. They were once again, great. We had sushi and many beers throughout the night. Tom’s not feeling very good today. I switched […]
I did a little experimenting today. I might like this painting just the way it is. –alanna
After pouring through my Frank Lobdell book, I was having this very vivid dream tuesday night about the inner workings of machines and electronics and how I may have found my calling as an artist, to investigate the insides of things. I opened up this large machine and inside were pipes and knobs and switches […]
I wish I wasn’t such a broken record but oh well. I’m doing better today. I got a lot done at work and feel like the project is getting closer to completion. Yesterday I got pretty far on the muscle car painting. Should be done in a session or two. Last night I decided the […]
Thompson died this weekend at age 67. It’s so sad. It’s just so sad. I don’t know what else to say. We will miss you.
