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.

Oh little sparrow........

This little sparrow always seems to want to be painted every few months. I think sparrows do have a little bit luck. Luck is always a funny thing isn't it?

This is my 2nd week of taking a break from my full time job to focus on my painting. Even though it is the holidays, I have started several paintings of some urban-scapes and some events around Portland so hopefully I will have sneak peaks of those soon.

I can't believe the year is almost up!

Everyone have a safe and happy New Years :)

Happy Holidays!

I just finished up this painting of the ever beautiful Sauvie's Island during fall. Fall is always so beautiful there because of the changing trees and the quietness of the countryside. It was a perfect October day but very cold.

2009 has moved by so fast and I can't believe we are already approaching the new year and I have lots of things in the works and lots of painting. I do have a first Thursday opening at Equilibrium next week from 6-8.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Snow and the Hoff

I went to a very delightful David Hasselhoff inspired party and here I am with a bow and a David Hasselhoff t shirt. As you can see behind the group there are pictures highlighting the Hoff through out his career. There was even a cake with a picture of the Hoff. :)

This is what I have been working on - not done yet but thinking about if we are going to have a white Christmas.

December December Remember December

So a few things- they are moving the first Thursday opening at Equilibrium to the first Thursday in January due to the highly anticipated civil war game this Thursday. Go Beavs!
