This weekend I had to get rid of an old palette. Crayola means a lot to me. I’m working on a new blogging class and the creative exploration class. I’m going to sketch and doodle the book this week. My birthday is coming up and I’d like to finish and scan the entire book. First […]
So happy that today my ebook is available. The paperback will follow in about four weeks. I had so much fun working on this book. I’ll be doing a couple more edits before I publish the paperback.
I’d like to start the week with a reminder that it’s all about the process. Who knew I could use this to make hearts? This week I’ll be…what will I do? review Live Your Story Edit if needed Learn the basics of instagram photos and try a few Book dummy for Road Trip draw more […]
I just want to have fun with this book. I’m still working on my summer plan. All the details are almost in place. I sat and doodled away at some lines, patterns, and textures. Ok at first I referenced some Instagram faves. Then I just kept creating. It’s like writing. It’s always good to just […]

You are a wonder to behold… From time to time I see a heart shaped leaf or a heart shaped cloud. There’s so much beauty in nature that we often take it for granted. The same can be said about us and the limitations we place on ourselves. I think this leaf came out pretty […]
So last night I read some tips on how to get “stuff” done effectively. One could be busy-busy but the deep question is DOING WHAT? That’s exactly how I felt today, and probably why I’ve been doing some fun art … in between the illustration painting for the book. DOING WHAT? I paint my curiosity […]
