I have been spending time with this little work in progress.  I leaning toward a series  of Gopis, the loving consorts of Krsna. Each possessed specific qualities offered in service to Krsna. 


Lots of painting in these parts.

Gnome Tats

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Yep. That is right, I gave my naughty gnome a tattoo yesterday. I live in a funky neighborhood and this gnome has found his tribe. I was out painting in the yard yesterday and thought he needed a little something more. All hail to Gnome Moms!

Internet Copy Cat

I didn't say that everything I made had to be decorative. Summer arrived in the Pacific Northwest just long enough to convince a few tourists that this is the most beautiful place in the world. It rained today. But that is oaky, because we ate the most delicious dinner. You should make at least one of these three:

Corn Salad
Cabbage Salad
Handmade Tortillas-I have been making tortillas a lot lately and the has been the best recipe for me.

Basically, I just made the entire menu from Posy, with the ingredients I had on hand. Everyone was very happy.

Happy Summer!

I see so many pretty things on the internet. I am going to make some of them, just for fun. Every time I see something I like and I think I can make it, I will. I started with these...

Lace Pots.

The pots were hanging around waiting for their destiny. I picked the doilies up for a $1 at an antique store.

Stay tuned to see what I make tomorrow.

World Domination Summit

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

The weekend has left me speechless and more than a little tired. The hardest part for me was walking into a crowd of 1,000 strangers and MINGLING. Wow, that took a lot out of me. But I am so happy I sucked it up! I heard from incredibly amazing individuals. Do you know Brene Brown? Well, check her out. She has a TED talk too! There was this guy! Oh man, what a story. I gave up my birthday for Charity Water. You can too! The host of the event was this very generous man! At the end of the conference, he gave EVERY member of the audience a $100 bill to go out into the world and make real change with real action. I feel the responsibility of such a gesture and am busy forming the concrete way in which I will offer this gift to the world. I also heard from these lovely people:

Jennifer Lee, oh man she helped me so much to get my vision clear!

There was this couple. LOVE them.

And bless this woman. I think I have found my inner introvert and have been playing the part of an extrovert all of these years. Really. Really.

There were so many more, people I met in line for the toilet, the young girl I chatted with while eating grilled cheese sandwiches as she told me about traveling around Asia, there were the numerous coaches, writers, bloggers, free thinkers, open hearters. Come next year, you will not be disappointed!
