I often post progress photos on Instagram and Facebook, if you’re interested in that sort of thing. Sometimes it’s fun to see how the paintings progress from blank sheet to finished product.    

Deck The Walls

Revealed! All the paintings I’ve been working on for Christmas, including babies, a dog in a frog suit and my very first tortoise.

Back to Business

Yesterday marked two weeks (at least) since I last picked up a paintbrush. It’s been so long I was starting to wonder if I’d forgotten how.


I have never taken more than a week off work (except when I was sick) and my theory is that one needs at least three weeks to full disengage from the office and settle into a new routine. I am convinced that the kids bicker less when I’m home more often, I snack less, I get more sleep and I don’t get headaches.

Coincidence? I think not.
