Yes

Yes to possibilities. Yes to the unknown. Yes, to the why not? This is my motto I am trying to live by and yes, it's not easy every day. But stories of fellow artists and creative souls who are making a living doing what they love and finding time to carve out those moments of joy and undiscovered talents, that is what keeps me going, keeps me inspired, and fills me with a resounding YES.

And yes, this piece is available for one more month at Cafe Trieste in Sausalito, CA.

Hitch your wagon to a star


I am back from an energizing and exhausting week of all things art and collage, where art supplies are spoken of with the reverence of gold buillon and classmates not only know, but care, if their watercolour paper is hot or cold pressed. It's good to go "home". It's good to be around those who give themselves this precious week out of the year to be themelves, to turn off, to not care about mail, electronic and otherwise. Thank you everyone for an amazing Artfest. It's good to go home and it's good to be home.

Seattle

If you're like me, on your way to Artfest, I highly recommend a detour into one or both of Ted Watson's fabulous Seattle stores, Watson Kennedy. It might be a torrential downpour outside but the moment you walk in you've entered the lovely land of all things heavenly...Paris flea market meets urban vintage tableau. By far, my favourite store in the world....who could resist this smiling face behind a counter of salted caramels, vintage flash cards and exquisite jewelry?
