Change is Good


In early summer I decided to take a step back and reacquaint myself with my brushes and paints.  I pledged to myself to have a canvas in process at all times.  Surprisingly, I succeeded.  In the past I would get frustrated and eventually walk away but this time it stuck. 

Because I was so happy with the results, I decided to reframe this blog to include all sorts of creative endeavors that I find myself dabbling in.

This is the first canvas I have painted for a long time.  I start with photos I've taken, working with the ones that capture a very singular experience of common objects and circumstances.

These strawberries came from the Pasadena Farmer's Market (even the pale ones were incredibly sweet).  You can find me there most Saturday mornings lugging more vegetables than I really need.
