I am an incredibly blessed artist! Truly I feel this is so not only because I get to spend each day drawing, painting, and making all sorts of things with yarn, but also because I have wonderful friends with whom I get to share these loves. As a companion to a recent post on my … Continue reading Draw Together!

But I love drawing here and have loved it for a year now. For other posts of drawings and paintings I've made there..click here and here and here and … Continue reading My Giverny
...there was Genevieve! That's confusing I know. But before I was drawing Genevieve, the name of my dress form was/is Genevieve. And so, I dress Genevieve, as if she was a big doll, with the latest knit or crochet creation. She makes a great model, don't you think? Here are a couple of other drawings … Continue reading Before Genevieve…
This is where I'm longing to be lately. Yes, I'd love for the weather to be pretty and warm enough for drawing at the Factory Courtyard, but I'm also longing for quiet spaces, a less frenetic life. With that in mind, I'm going to take a break from all my blogs except for Letters To … Continue reading A Place of Quiet
