While my time is for the most part currently usurped by our transition from one home to another, I have been able to do a drawing or sketch here and there.

This is a study for a painting, titled “Listening Fence”, the idea came from a dream I had, although in the dream, the figures were more angst and the heads were ended before the eyes start. that still could happen I am undecided until I start the painting.
I may change the composition a bit, depends on my intuition when I begin the painting.

This is also a sketch/study, the idea of being rooted. I may take that further…

I drew it on a piece of card board, that is all that was around at the time.

May 19th, the “Barbie as Gendered Object” exhibit will open at the Ann Street Gallery. If you live in NYC have a look, there you will see “Pucker” among other altered Barbie beauties.

I have been forcing myself to not spend too much time in the yard. In Calabasas the roses are in full, glorious bloom and are so lovely and fragrant. I do adore a cut flower and will be planting roses in Ojai for certain. If you are new to this blog, I am moving from Calabasas, Ca to Ojai, Ca. Both locations have their merits.

On the kitchen table, yellow beauties:
and on the living room coffee table, pretty in pink:

I tried to feed the birds by making these orange cups from a recipe I saw on pinterest.

I do believe that they ate the whole thing including the string 😀 inside, peanut butter, oatmeal, sun flower seeds and bird seed.

Thought I had a very sick pug on my hands, turns out he is just an old man :b

This is a pic of our house going up for rent May 15th, looking for good tenants~~

In the back, a bit of an oasis:

A lovely covered patio area with grill.

Its a little cluttered with my many plants which I will be removing soon. The house is in a safe and quiet neighborhood. We love a Mediterranean style house and have eleven contented years, but times and needs change 😀
That is bout it for an update, I hope to be creating a lot more soon.

Paper dolls

There has been so little time for art the past few weeks as my husband and I transition from one house to another and supplies are packed and displaced. We are down sizing quite a bit and that has confused things as well, because I could probably fill a whole garage with my art and materials, oh yeah I did :b I’ve been trying to be rid of stuff and pack other stuff up for my parents to sell in a garage sale. I do have a truck load for them. Lesson be learned, don’t be a pack rat (sounds better than hoarder!)

Did manage to do a little drawing and collaging, not all that thrilled with my collage, I see it is a form of expression one needs to work at or take lessons from Karenann Young!

This is prismacolor pencils on Bristol vellum. I had to stop as I wore out my sharpener. For real. “Hatched”

“Where there is smoke…”

I’m listening to Kat Edmonson and loving her voice and music. I Have home made beef jerky cooking in the oven, while we try to eat beef only once every other week I do love to snack on jerky but it is way to costly in the grocery store.

Doodling

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Sometimes a little mindless doodling is in order. The simplest and most straightforward of tools, pencil and eraser.

This one is touched up in photoshop, but I so prefer the textural pencil marks over the flat patches of color that is digital.

Octo hair

octo

Its a melding of an implosion of ideas all at once, she basically had a life of her own once pencil hit paper, and I was just the manifestation instrument. Basically, she is a bloomer wearing, pink puddle hopping, octo hair blooming dancer.
