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.

Road

 “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Today Nora asked me if trolls are real.  Lately she has been asking me a lot whether or not something is real or just made up. She is constantly evaluating what to believe in whether its real or made up. I  love watching her imagination, creativity and  how it comes so easy to her. I often want her to hold on to those qualities for as long as she possibly can because as a grown up I find myself often chasing after my imagination. I tell her that if you believe in them, then they are real. She responds and says, I want one to visit me one day.

Country Road

Mommy, Everett is looking at me. - Nora says.
No Mommy,  Nora is looking at me. - Everett says louder. They go back and for for a solid 10 minutes with repeating the same sentences over  and over.  I'm driving and taking the long back way home. The long way that curls around trees and up and down grass covered hills. They fall asleep in the car, and wake up like nothing happened at all.

Portrait Practice

Portrait Practice of a teenager from my neighborhood. It's summer time, and all the teenagers hang out behind the top secret neighborhood sign (really not a secret) and smoke cigarettes. Quick sketch.

Caught

Turning sketchbook pages into paintings. When I was a kid, I would live in books, and have stacks and stacks just laying around. Being a mom, I read less but listen to books more. I miss holding the books closely and being able to smell the dusty old yellow  pages,  but I am grateful  for learning how to listen.

Monster Drawing Rally 2018


Some out takes for the Portland Art Museum's Monster Drawing Rally! Over 75 artists participating this year and each artists will draw for one hour. Everything that is made, will be auctioned off to charity.  This is fun way to cure some of my stage fright, because painting in front of a large crowd isn't intimidating at all! I loved what I made especially in the short amount of time.
