Attention to Detail

Bicycle Adventure to Surfside!

About a year ago, David and I did a 50 mile ride to one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the United States. 3 days ago, we completed a 63 mile journey to one of the most industrialized

DreamCatchers, Baby Showers

A few weeks ago I attended my first baby shower.  It was fun, and interesting. I did not realize it would be an all woman event. There were fresh squeezed fruit cocktails and cute paper straws with the new-born-to-be’s name

Tour of Parks, Houston

I have a little adventure I would like to go on before the not-so-mild Houston summer heat sets in. I would like to go on a weekend trip to Galveston. To get there, I would ride my bike! :D I

Paintings… progress

I have finally finished…sort of…three paintings so far for the up coming show at Gallery M2. It would have been four if I hadn’t completely botched one up. Here they are so far: The one on the left is called

The Hatchlings are Growing!

So… David and I have been taking our food rubbish and squirreling them away into yogurt buckets, coffee cans and empty Ovaltine containers.  They had at one point melted into a disgusting “slurry” of putrid rot. I came out of

Gallery M2 (squared)

On our way back from N.Shore, I got a phone call from an art gallery in Houston. The night before I left I was cleaning up my work area and found a business card on my easel. It was regarding

An awesome visit back home…

The airplane landed late Friday afternoon. I picked up some food and sat at Diamond Head in the rain looking out at Cliffs; the break where I first learned to surf. I left Houston with the intent of blogging my

Just 35 More Squares to Go…

        Just a billion more squares to paint. While a cup of wine has boosted my enthusiasm, the lines have become sloppy. I’m hurdling the wall, rounding the bend of this painting. It’s like the 4-7 year

Cilantro

Little hatchlings. We’ve started creating compost buckets out of empty milk cartons and letting them “steep” on our lanai. Stoked to see these cilantro seeds start to grow. I can’t wait!

Wallpaper

My new wall paper… soon to be. I blame it on project ADD. I’m not sure I can paint the walls, so I purchased a few large canvases and decided to go with a damask pattern and farm animals. A

Surfside Sunday

A gray and gloomy day. David and I had been checking the buoy’s for weeks. The prospect of an hour long trip into unknown conditions and icy water was less than enticing.  Packing in the rain was like an aunt pushing

Snakes and Ladders

A few bugs for some evil deeds, and cilantro for the good. Slowly painting my way through the board game Snakes & Ladders (Chutes and Ladders.) Its origin is India, a Hindu game to teach children the consequences of good
