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.



So I am waiting for few paintings to dry because I really need to get into gear for this summer and my future endeavors.

I started my class this last week and it's my first painting class, EVER! It was an extremely humbling experience. Going to a class and being open and honest to change and learning something new which was and is huge challenge. So this last week we starting working on a still life black and white painting and it really makes you realize that sometimes you need to get back to the basics.

This weekend I met up with my art group and we haven't seen each other in awhile due to holiday hiatus. I really missed each and everyone of them since they all bring a different percecptive to the group and we all really "get" each others creative spirit.

I also found out this week I got accepted into doing the Southeast Portland Art walk which I don't know exactly where I am going to be but I'm sure I will found out more information in the orientation in weeks to come.

Have a good week! :)

I get so excited when you post. Is that a new painting? Very cute! I'm so impressed that you went outside of your comfort-zone and tried the art class. That takes courage. You've taken so many new risks in just the short time that I've known you. I think you should be proud of yourself and celebrate! A perfect reason to celebrate...

Is that panda painting some kind of metaphorical personification of me?

Because if it is, I am highly offended.
