New painting

Here it is. Finished.



Wire Baskets

I'm kinda in-love with wire baskets right now. I envision putting wood in one and placing it next to our fireplace. These beauties are from one of my greatest sources of inspiration Jayson Home and Garden.


Eat Pray Love

I haven't exactly figured out why I'm somewhat obsessed with the book and now the movie (i saw it last night). Is it that I can relate to the author as a control freak? I am someone who wants to know everything before making a decision. Or, is it that I admire the guts that it took to take that journey- to leave her marriage and travel alone- to have the discipline and patience to meditate daily? I don't want to leave my marriage or my children, but I do long to break the mold- to go beyond where I think I can go and to break with traditional roles and expectations.


145 minutes

Sadie and Eli are still asleep- 145 minutes!
I'm working on the background of this painting and listening to the airshow practice.

One hour and thirty-six minutes

Sadie and Eli have been asleep for one house and thirty-six minutes, but who's been counting? It's a miracle. I have been catching up on email, day-dreaming, journaling, internet surfing...


Dining room lighting

I LOVVVVVVVE this dining room so much that I had a table created like this one. 
Now, I'm working on my own version of the lighting. Here are pictures of the frames I have created.

Flower painting transformation

The painting went from this pink extravaganza to...

this. We'll see what happens next. I'm still not finished.
