My mom was over visiting last week so I don't have any art-y things to show you but I do have whales! We went out on a boat and saw gray whales migrating past the Washington coast. I've never been out on the water whale watching before - my only other whale sightings were from land so they were not exactly very close.

I love having house guests because that seems like the only time I do things like this. Even though it's not very far away I never take the time to do some of the tourist-y things.

mauve-y? lavender?

More digital collages, 9x12".

I don't know what you call that color there but I'm completely fixated on it lately :) I used to never wear purple or lavender and now all of a sudden I love it. How does that happen?

spring at last!

Happy Spring to my northern hemispherical friends! Not much has come up in the garden as of yet but my hellebores are going strong despite getting buried in snow a few weeks ago :) And whatever flowering tree I have there is juuuust about ready to flower. Oh, and the spotty green leaves are my pulmonaria popping up.

I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation, you get that feeling in spring? One day of sunshine and I'm whizzing around doing things in the house and weeding in the garden and kind of all over the place.

I took these pics with my new camera which does not have a handy little screen that I can tilt up towards me when I'm trying to photograph something down at ground level. My old camera was great for this sort of thing (although not the greatest camera). So I tried to point the camera up under the hellebores and click and then look what I got. Not the most efficient method but I got some interesting compositions that way :)

Ok, Hollie has finally gotten me inspired to figure out the facebook fan page. If you'd like to push the button, it's right over there on the sidebar. Thanks Hollie! My hero :)

My little pieces are now up at Ghost Gallery in Seattle. Here's some pics if you'd like to take a look. There's some other great miniature pieces there, too!

Thanks to gallery owner/curator Laurie Kearney! They look great :)
