Gloomy mylar heart balloon for all my Valentines.

Looking back through my phone. This pedestal held a massive holiday dollhouse.
Flat and three dimensional at the same time.

This time last year I was making gloomy balloon after gloomy balloon. This one has little CMYK action peeking out the sides.
There are four of these available in the studio shop through the end of February.

The tree lot in Charlie Brown  Christmas is so beautiful.
Merry Christmas friends.

Drove 40min for this “light show”.


Now I have a real camera!
Thanks for all the tips and selling me your camera  @erikannis

This drawing has been in limbo since October, which was the last time I did any real drawing  in the studio cause work/family but I’m feeling this nutty pink plaid- that’ll anchor the top of the drawing.

Working on round two of these objects found while walking outside and then painted with gouache.
No idea where this is going but I did make @_b_crawford a killer set of Christmas ornaments.

Making a second round of each color

December so far. Work trip to Anaheim, introducing quick ink drawings in class, meetings, and the holiday assembly.

Took my class to see @taha_hey and @tiffanyj_art ‘s studios today. 😍
Of course I loved this part where it feels like a Vija Clemins painting inside a glitchy fern.
Thanks @rootball2000 and @school33artcenter !

End of an era. The last of the #stringtowngrocery sanding sugar used up in holiday baking.

Our ornament collection is almost entirely handmade. My mom made these great felt ones when I was a kid. I’ve made a bunch and of course the little takes after her mom and grandma too.

Zelda’s first Christmas. So far so good with these kittens.

Thank you Anaheim for these awesome tiles.
