A little felt… a little ribbon….

Well, just like everyone else on the planet (hopefully since this has got to stop!), weโ€™ve been staying home. Itโ€™s not completely different from how things are usually (I love being home), itโ€™s just a little more intense… Of course, as usual, there are the regular, run of the mill things to take care of…

Each piece of the puzzle

I remember making a woodcut print block design in this manner a long time ago, as if flattening all items in my view, making shapes out of the spaces where an object would overlaps another. I loved it. As I think of it, it reminds me of exercises we had at school where we had…

This old thing?

I love to recycle and so when an item of clothing no longer serves us but I like the pattern or colour, I find it hard to donate it. Once I came across this Martha Steward pattern for a bunny rabbit, I found a purpose for some of my fabric ๐Ÿ™‚ itโ€™s a very simple…

Peace and cold

To me, there something very peaceful about wintertime. Large expanses covered in snow, like a ginormous blanket over the sleeping earth. The leaves have gone, nothing vibrant remains….. it is quiet and peaceful- and beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

Finished product

And now, with a few finishing touches, my portrait is finished.

Craving painting

I haven’t posted anything in a while….. as I have turned my attention to an illustration project I am enjoying. Throughout the process however (it’s a bigger, longer project), I’ve been craving painting…. So, here’s a little project I worked on, during breaks from my illustration project. Not sure it’s quite done yet, but almost…

Look up :)

Always look up. If you don’t, you may be missing out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Bouquet, deconstructed :)

I’ve always enjoyed flowers, branches and weeds (unless they’re taking over my yard….). I love making arrangements with grocery store flowers and greenery or with wild “pick your own” ones. Although a floral arrangement is a lovely treat, I never indulge. So when I was recently given a bouquet, I thoroughly enjoyed it as it…

Under the radar

I am always attracted to and struck by the beauty of object with great patina, markings of time and people passed by. Perhaps it’s the patina itself I love so much and not even the object- is that possible? (I’m convinced that certain things I own, I do so BECAUSE they’re old and worn and…

Time for the hunt!

I always enjoy an occasion ๐Ÿ™‚ Times to enjoy something different from the everyday and a wonderful opportunity to create family memories and do something fun. As a child I remember colouring eggs, and then hunting for them in my grand-father’s rose garden. I like to keep things simple (as always) and so we bought…

Not one but two!

Travelling down the weekend road trip road… day dreaming and cat napping intermittently… not one but two old beetle cars grabbed my attention. Felt like a special moment, a rarity. Was I supposed to make a wish?
