Andrew Wyeth Quote

“I dream a lot. I do more painting when I’m not painting. It’s in the subconscious.” Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Wyeth has always been a favorite. Love his quote, it's so true. I am lying on the couch Googling and sketching. I can feel some different artwork trying to find its way out.

My Sister's a Natural

Last week was wonderful. My sister Virginia came to visit and she'd kindly sit with me in my studio each morning and we'd sip coffee and talk. I asked her if she'd like to play with clay, and people can I tell you... she's a natural. She made three bowls and a bird. I even had the poor girl glazing (did you know I HATE glazing?) Yes... I do. So roped her into it.

UPS Gone Wrong

I shipped a piece last week for a customer in South Carolina. She told me that UPS sent her a message saying "they discarded the parcel" It seems there was an accident and the UPS truck caught on fire. She the images I found online because somewhere in that mess is my parcel. Sadness.

Holiday Ornaments

While cleaning up my studio I thought why leave these ornaments on my table? Go put them on my tree. So I did. They look quite happy on the tree during the holidays and they should not be packed away with Christmas decor once the holidays end. Nope, put a nail in the wall so they can hang around all year long.
