My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Attack of the birds

Well these little bitty inny whinny tinny paintings are for the Art House's Canvas Project in that fabulous Hot-lanta. I don't know why but these little guys took forever to dry. These are the little brown hopping birds that were all over Cancun, Mexico.

So I am back to working on my landscape series and right now I am working on a lovely painting of the Deshutes River. I think the air is different in Bend.. crispier.. greenier.. fresher.. just a good place to get away from the it all.

So it's almost Halloween and I do not have a costume. I have a cape so maybe it might be a recipe for a super hero. I am not sure what my super power would be... If anyone out there has any ideas that is not a cat, nurse, witch, or something with wings- I am all ears... haha!

Pictures of birds remind me of Hitchcock.
