a week in color {№6}

we are in the home stretch to spring!  i really do like these transition weeks.  goodbye winter.  even though i love your crisp sunny days and coats and soup and stuff, i am ready to feel the warm grass on my bare feet.

you guys, i am addicted to image transfers.  the block above is my first piece where i am partnering my images with bold color statements.

a sweet breakfast table while on the road.  (red truck bakery, warrenton virginia)

yes.  spring is coming.

my collection of vintage art supplies continues to expand.  i see a giant collection photograph in the making.

a week in color {№5}

in case you don't know, luca would like to remind you that a wire fox terrier won best in show at westminster this week.

that's right, top dog.

it snowed a bit this week. i'm trying to keep it all in perspective, but i am over this winter.  more on the way tonight.


i love a good sale.  and i could use a few rainbows.

new carnival letters for the gypsy hill meditation altar.  because this girl likes a little funk with her serenity.

a week in color {№4}

the gypsy bed mr. parks made for me.

sometimes when i get homesick, he takes me for roadhouse steak and blues.

i really really like stripes.  rainbow stripes, to be specific.

so....i ate a rainbow sprinkle donut immediately after yoga this week.  just felt like i needed to confess.

other times when i get homesick, i have to paint it out.

i want all of these recycled sari and jute rugs.

a few incredibly talented muralists are painting richmond.  this one is my favorite.  (but of course i have not yet seen this one.)

sunday grace

“i used to think i was the strangest person in the world but then i thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways i do. i would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. well, i hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true i'm here, and i'm just as strange as you.”
