What a difference a day makes...


How the ocean mimics our minds....these photos, taken a day apart at Tennessee Valley, are not far from my mind...the serenity and gentle tide of "it will all work out and anything is possible" only 24 hours after "nothing makes sense, who do I think I am, how can I make a living as an artist, creative soul, blah, blah, blah...." and yet...both are true for us, for me, in that moment. How do we stay on the sunny side of the beach?

Back to basics

A day well spent in my little art studio that could. It began with boxes stacked, still unpacked from August, looking at me, like, I know you want to but....how? With what furniture and no storage and but, but...the excuses....So, I did what every good citizen does on Thanksgiving Weekend and shopped. I went to thrift shops around Marin and with a grace, syncronocity and really, really nice guys at the Goodwill who were willing to jigsaw puzzle pieces of furniture that shouldn't fit into my car, I came home with a room full of bargain (and have I mentioned adorable yet functional?) furniture that has transformed cardboard into creation. My little room is starting to sparkle and feel like the sanctuary I had wanted it to be.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thankgiving everyone! I am grateful for family & friends, good health, living in Northern California, creative impulses that I have time and freedom to pursue, and an overall abundance in my life that continues to flow. Thank you!

Monday


Brought to you by the letter "M". I'm on a vintage letter kick (again) and scouring ebay, antique fairs, and flea markets for large and small, metal and bisque, letters and numbers of all shapes and sizes. Lovely letters make me so happy.

Freaky Friday


It is Friday the 13th and there is uproarious goofiness in the air at work. From dawn to dusk, it has been a flurry of creative energy, wacky phone calls, laugh attacks that have not been provoked by the endless stream of sweet treats in this artistic office...just a funny, lovely day with wonderful co-workers. Sasha, the wonder cat, was not here to partake but her upside down hambone pose speaks for us all.

Carpe Diem at Stinson Beach


Keeping the faith on a sunny late fall Saturday afternoon at Stinson. Toes in the sand, sun on your face, blue skies above and a stick to write in the sand....it doesn't get much better than this.
