I’m back! And I have a new friend…

Okay people. It’s been over a month since my last post and I sincerely do apologize. Life has been busy, life has been full, life has been beautiful.

Here are some excuses:

1) I moved to a new home and set up a new studio and am as pleased as pie in the new, well-lit space.
2) I adopted a kitten I found on the road dying in the hot desert sun. Her name is Dragon and she is very distracting with her cuteness. See?

Despite these big life events I have been painting and crafting up a storm. So sit tight and enjoy the more frequent posts for the rest of the summer!

Here is an oil painting I finished last month for my brother-in-law’s wedding. It depicts the countryside north of Bakewell, England where we all took a hike this past year. Monumental memories I tell ya.

Café on the River Cam

While in Cambridge, UK this summer my husband punted my new in-laws and I down the river Cam on a sunny day. A sunny day in England… imagine that! Well, we were strangely lucky and had plenty of sun when we were there and I took many photographs. It is quite likely that these pictures will end up in painted form one day or another and here is the first example: a playful painting of a café near where we docked our boat.
