SLIDER

Hello!

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.

What happened to March?

Seriously.. What happened to March? Trees are getting little leafy buds and flowers are springing up and it's been pouring rain. RAIN!  I know the plants need the water but it's been pouring! The weather has been cold.. gray.. grim.. I am ready for sunshine.. 80 degree weather.. flipflops.. and summer dresses.  :)  I leave for Asia in about a month and I have so much painting to do!
This is a little something that I have been working on.  1952 Dictionary pages collaged on wood which have been scrapped from the lumber mill.  I oil painted a few people getting ready to ride the subway.  I loved painting their faces. 
If you are in P-town (I am so 90's) then come check out one of my shows for April.  There are only a few more days for my kickstarter project, check out the video.
