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.

night


 Spending the next few days with our car windows rolled down and 80's pop music on repeat on the stereo. I love my cramped little studio and I am a notorious home body, but it feels so good to get away for a few days. Just to drive on long roads between the tall evergreen trees. We already splashed in a lake and ate french fries from a diner. Currently seeking inspiration. Sketch from last night sky. The stars are so big out here and they blanket the whole sky.

Oranges.


Oranges. Today was the last day of kindergarten for Nora, and I can not believe I have a first grader. I surprised her with a big pile of balloons at the bus stop to celebrate.

Lemons

Half-ed Lemons.

We went to the Portland Art Museum yesterday and visiting paintings just makes me want to head straight into the studio. The kids loved the museum too and managed to not touch a single painting this time.

Banana


The silliest fruit. Everett lately has been obsessed with eating bananas. Before any meal, It's Mommy I want a Banana with Dinner. Mommy I want a banana with Lunch. I should chalk it up to a win, because its healthy right?

Sunday Portrait Practice

Been in a funk when it comes to practicing portraits. Knowing if I say it out loud, maybe it would help me over the slump. Girl from the nail salon because I went to get my feet done.

Looking out

One of the best parts about staying out at the coast, is at night watching the boats twinkle by at  night. You can't see their shape, but just their glowing light guiding their way.

Flying

“The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.” 
― Douglas AdamsLife, the Universe and Everything

Ive often had flying dreams, since I was a kid. When i was really little  I would be flying in my dreams, then i would wake up as i was falling to the ground and hitting the floor in my room.

Imperial Red

Imperial Red Mark XII Camera. You guys! I have a confession to make. I can not stop collecting these old bright colored toy cameras. They make me too happy. I love thinking about the memories they have captured. The documenting time, in a more fun way then a regular camera. And how a camera has a new life, when it gets a new owner. Also Tim has not made one mention about having too many in the house.. yet. So GIMME more!
