did someone say pattern?

i'm kinda into patterns right now
finished this crazy one today


how it went down
paused to get play-doh out of the little man's truck 
(the end of the paint brush came in handy)

next, eli joined me at the table

 another pause to watch sadie do a trick on 
the swing and trapeze bar

finally, she joined me at the table
i'm getting ideas from her painting :)

now, she's on the studio wall 
with her patterned friends

details here


...have left the studio

 one of my favs now has a happy home 
across the globe

has moved to the north east

has moved down south
also now a southerner

while it's sad to see them go, 
i'm excited about what i've got cookin' in the studio
lots more to come :)


Afternoon Reading's big sister

may tweak the colors a bit, 
but overall
i like

 i used Afternoon Reading as inspiration

small watercolor painting 
and sketching
easel painting area
i've got a 48 x 48 incher waiting
(my goal is to have a sketch 
on this baby by the end of the week)
paints and
brushes ready to go
space to sit, research and reflect
computer, sewing machine
and inspiration wall
 a close-up of the inspiration wall
another glimpse
a view of the kids' side
 kids' table for clay and sketching

and another view of the kids' side
my favorite parts: 
the great light for painting and 
the gynormous ceiling
heading downstairs to the rest of the house
Poppy Chair adds a punch of color 
to the black and white stairs
