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.

I can not believe that it is almost Christmas time. It feels like almost over night it has be come practically winter. So we just got back from beautiful Hawaii and it was very relaxing trip. We sat on the beach practically all week and drank fruity drinks. Even though there were many drinks- I did successfully complete a few sketches. :)
I also got an email that one of my painting was picked for
a publication. So I never went to art school but I did take one painting class and one of the assisgnments was picked for the schools literary magazine.

Time to start thinking about Christmas planning... and making my Christmas list.

Family Show

I am in the Family Show at the Launch Pad Gallery and I just did a small painting of a church. I went to a small private Catholic School for all 12 years of school. I know.. pretty painful. Yes I wore a uniform.. Yes there were nuns with large rulers.. Thinking back . Now feeling old.. we used to write the answers of our spelling tests on our upper legs under our skirt to cheat, to this day I am still a horrible speller. Thank god for spell check. :)

So this is a little church out in the middle of no where in Helvetia, Oregon. Helvetia is best known for their burger joint, Helvetia Tavern. I have gone out and eaten there a few times because the burgers are so monstrous and fresh. I did a lot of thinking about what I wanted to do for this show since lately I have been mainly working on landscapes and I thought I would go with something a little bit more from my back ground.
