Using the last bits of studio time I can find before the school year speeds up.

Arizona thrifted craft treasures.  Possible inclusion in a necklace. I have jewelry ideas brewing.

Amazing test tile at the clay studio in AZ.

Test tile extravaganza

Morning walk highlights. Robert says I keep taking the same picture over and over again. But look at the differences!

Then she made this which is a part of a veil that she can wear and drag around behind her.
Also totally going to make these into drawings.

My daughter is a balloon animal genius.

Morning walk with senior citizen graffiti artist.


Tonight’s cactus

Balloon animal kit. Bought this for the little but apparently that means this is now a skill I’m learning.

Arizona morning walk. Day one. So. Hot.

Hello Friend

More of these guys

End of this sketchbook. Featuring notes from studio visits with @heidi_neff_art and @matthewtmclaughlin  packing lists and a trip to rural Wisconsin.
I went all@the way to the end this time so you can see my other obsessive tally mark lists that keep track of activity and production in the studio- and of course the handy sketchbook pocket.

Rainy Day WVa reading

Truly inspiring. This theatre curtain was handmade by Frank Lloyd Wright’s students as a surprise based on one of his drawings of the WI landscape. It’s so low tech (felt and yarn on muslin) and it’s aging in the coolest way- all color and texture.

I love you Wisconsin.

Rural Wisconsin  weekend.

Self portrait at the Infinity Room at House on The Rock. Photo dump when I have WiFi again.

Documentation day with @r.l.tillman

It’s about time!
Finally documenting the new clusters. Updates and applications galore in the next two weeks.

For the first time in 3 years I’m taking the time to make some new drawing clusters.
#draweveryday #workinprogress

An incredible week. I did more drawing than I imagined and have tons of new ideas. 
It’s gonna be a shift to move back into my tiny space- local friends- I’m looking for some feedback on this new work- two people don’t fit in my studio but I have some ideas- let me know if you want to connect in the next couple if weeks.

Magical drawing detail

Studio outtake.
This has been the most glorious two weeks. Quality TIME and SPACE is a rare rare thing in my studio practice and the Virgo in me took a minute to accept that things went in new directions I couldn’t be happier about where things are going. Turned new corners I would have never been able to without this community. 
Tomorrow is the last day. Promising myself to keep seeking out that time, space, and community.
