tiny birds

It's that time of year again...the garden is growing out of control (including the weeds, unfortunately), there's a horse who needs exercising, and I have several sewing projects to put together for summer.

So there's no art in this post but am I apologizing? I am not. Things happen. It's ok. The only problem is that I tend to post here when I have art to show you so when I haven't been in the studio much I sort of feel like I have nothing to post. But today I am sharing with you some tiny little hummingbirds so I hope that will be ok :) I got a zoomier lens for my camera and I've been practicing on these little guys. Hummingbirds are so tiny I've never gotten a good picture of one before. They're all buzzing around looking for a fight so if you go out in my yard right now you're likely to be divebombed and chirped at within an inch of your life.

Not on me, though. Lovely Stephanie who wanted the tattoo design of magnolias has sent me photos of the finished tattoo (and an in-progress shot, ouch). I think it turned out pretty fabulous! Amber from Dana Tattoo in Cincinnati did the tattooing.

Thanks again to Stephanie for getting me involved in this project - designing a tattoo was new to me and a good learning experience in doing custom work :)

Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk

I've been doing prep work for the big Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk in Seattle the last few days. I thought I would bring some original pieces framed and also a few matted prints to accommodate a wider variety of budgets :)

The art walk is Friday, May 13th and Saturday, May 14th and I'll be at Alterations Fit 4 You at 7411 Greenwood Ave N.

I love hanging out and talking to people and especially talking about art, so I think it'll be fun! I'm hoping to sneak out for a minute and see some of the other artists, too :)

new member of the family!

Meet the new member of the family! This is My (short for Marigold, her registered name) and she just arrived this morning. She's not quite sure what she thinks about her big move just yet but she's settling in pretty well :)
