From Start to Finish

I’ve started documenting my painting and drawing process because I figure if I find watching another artists’ process interesting, perhaps others mind find mine interesting as well? So for a few close people who know me well….. and now all of you, ( my new bffs ) šŸ™‚ , you know that I have this fascination with moving to Montana or Wyoming. (Previously it was Portland.) Why? Because TREES that’s why! I love me some gigantic pine trees on hills with grass and wild things (that won’t kill me). I also apparently love parenthesis? šŸ™‚ and smiley faces. But in the last few years, I’ve become a hermit and I LOVE it. So Portland is out. Waaay too social, albeit, good coffee. So therefore, I must one day move to Wyoming or Montana because it’s much more secluded. AKA: Less assholes and idiots. I fell in love with that after I started watching Longmire which I started watching because of Starbuck from BSG. Shout out!! But really, it’s a neat show. You should give it …

You Sure Do Have a Pretty Mouth

I don’t know what gets into me this late at night when everything I start writing has nothing to do with the actual subject until the very end. Maybe it was a poor attempt at being cleaver at 1:00am? I’m really going to regret staying up this late come tomorrow morning. I WILL need lots and lots of coffee. So this has nothing do with mouths but it does have to do with pretty packaging. A while back I fell in love with some packaging ideas I found on Pinterest. And I don’t know if it’s just me or if it’s a girl thing but I reallly like getting a package that looks like a gift. It just feels like a lot of extra care was put into it. Am I alone in this? So anyway, I started doing the same. The reviews have been fab. It does take a bit of extra time but I think that’s just because I’ve always been a slow and poor wrapper. I don’t even give out Christmas gifts …

Before and After

While I’m figuring out all the nifty ways to organize content on here, I thought I might actually post something related to what this blog is supposed to be about. I’m sure everyone loves a good restroom post (see “There’s a giant hole in my chair“) but I thought perhaps some behind the scenes of my little studio would be nicer. I enjoy the neatness of the before photo but I blame the after photo on the limited space I’m working in. I dream of giant loft like space with oodles of giant windows and skylights to let the natural light in. Ā I’d like to think perhaps then, I wouldn’t be such a slob, but I am who I am and that means most of the time, I’m living life in the after photo.
