I've been taking a class that's all about getting unstuck or kickstart a revolution in one's art. It's led by artist Louise Fletcher, who is co-host of a podcast I've been listening to for awhile now. I took her free one week taster course, and decided to jump in and do the full ten-week program… Continue reading A new type of imagery emerging
Art in the Time of Coronavirus
I had imagined so much extra time to do things like write and draw, now I'm working from home and staying in my house 97% of the time. It hasn't really been the case. I'm still working, and more hours than before. The 8-10 hours in front of the computer leave me tired— it's a… Continue reading Art in the Time of Coronavirus
Inktober has returned!
Well I hadn't planned on participating in Inktober this year, but then on the second, I decided I would after all, but with no pressure this year.

Day twenty-four: The mystery had only just begun
Day twenty-four: When at last she’d completed ministrations to her old-new house in such ways that compelled her, she returned to the leathery old box— a delicious reward. Retrieved from its out-of-the-way place of safe-keeping (much to Cat's chagrin), she opened it. It contained the following: + One journal; worn but not ruined + One… Continue reading Day twenty-four: The mystery had only just begun
