House plant take over.

Back  in the studio never felt so good. Having a weekend away, made me just  want to dive back in the studio in more. Exploring more of urban jungle.

Saturday Portrait

Quick portrait practice. Spending the whole weekend making art and not your typical art for me is such a liberating experience. We have been focused on making marks and not over thinking the process of putting the paint brush to the paper.

Butterfly

Spending the weekend at a lovely art retreat. Yay! I look forward to packing  my car filled with art supplies and spending the weekend just diving deep into creativity. It also  helps that I am away from my kids for 2  and half days. Yay! I know I will  miss them as  some point, but it feels so good to have a break.

Swans

“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” ― Coco Chanel

Just down the street there is a lake with beautiful swans. Even though I have never really seen an ugly one. I have been taking the kids down to watch them glide seamlessly across the lake. Not sure why it is so calming for me. Everett does insist on calling them mommy ducks, even though I tell him they are swans. To be fair, he also calls Reindeers, Mommy Dogs.

Royal

Typewriters have been a long obsession of mine, and I have been collecting and getting rid of them for years, but always keeping my favorite. (of course) Not sure if its the stories they have told or the messages they have written. The sound of the keys hitting the paper. Tim told me that I was not allowed to have any more typewriters in the house.. So thankfully he didn't say anything about the garage.

Weekend reading.

White bird

Last nights dream. I was a white bird  sitting. There were bees flying almost floating around me. I woke up to a slight hum of the house which reminded me of the bees.

Wrapping up projects and deadlines make me feel like this.
