little vagabonds!
we’re having another art opening down the street tomorrow night, friday the 13th!
please come to a.muse gallery if you’re around we’d love to see you.

i’ve been having an inspiring time painting. not sure what to make of this new body of work… the photos are just a teaser + some honestly in bad light… so you have to come in person to see! plus there are more than pictured! yay!

*i love what miss jen lemen says about “what 100 painting will teach you”.

*also, i like reading about anahata’s process/concepts.

*and one of my favorite painters beatriz milhazes speaks about her painting process via dear ada

*have i told you i’m really excited to teach painting at art nest soon?! are any of you out there joining us?

*AND, more on this later, but kelly and i are planning to teach a coffee table book class next year at art journey!

i’m going to seattle next week to put together a sample of the “funky chunky coffee table” book (kooky name, eh? it makes me laugh each time i say it in the best way) and for some good, much needed, girl time with super creative women: kelly and my bff from childhood and maybe jenny and andrea as well? lots of goodness ahead. exploring. clothes shopping. mani/pedi. cafes. guilty pleasure tv aka the bachelor and the city analyzing. lemon drops. dare i say hot-tubbing and orange crush VW driving?

i feel lucky. speaking of luck… a giveaway of my talented friend jenifer of sprout studios is featured on kelly’s blog today.
