Life, whimsy, painting…September!

The last few days have been spent in such relaxation…taking long walks stepping in the crunchy leaves (while closing my eyes and imagining its Autumn), reading, scouring thrift shops, painting and sketching a bit. The other night we had a camp fire with toasted marshmallows in the country. For the first time in a long time I saw the sky scattered with stars. And it was COLD…a light wool sweater type of cold! I love September. So, from now to the end of October, its all Autumn here! It comes and goes to quickly, I am going to savor every second of it, and I’m sure you will want to too!

A few things as of recent…

My desk, newly cleaned and cleared-off. I have a new project in the works, the pile of paper covered masonite in the top left corner is a hint of it’s preparation. The sketchbook on the lower left side is brand new, and probably the best sketch book I have ever had for many reasons. It has a soft, flexible leather cover that I’m thinking will accommodate the bulge of papers pasted on its pages. It feels so good in my hands! I just can’t wait to fill it with doodles.

Some vintage clothing I am ecstatic about! My very cluttered shelf to the right. Good clutter though.

Thrifted things from last Friday. Oh, except the old medicine bottle.

Martha Labels, Kiki Smith, Embroidered bee, a odd couple I snipped from an old book, tree card from Whole Foods, and another Kiki.

A peak at the first painting in the new project I was writing about above. She is painted on beautiful handmade paper with little petals captured in the pulp, which is giving her a very soft feel. She will be in the shop very soon, along with the others.

  1. I am so delighted to have discovered you. Your art takes me on wonderful imaginary journeys.
    Thank you for sharing a peek at your studio, oh that my “clutter” was so lovely as yours! You have inspired me to redo my studio.

  2. Your desk is so neat!! Mine is a disaster zone already!! The new painting is shaping up nicely- brr, she looks cold!!
    The plaid little jacket with the bright green ribbon is so adorable!! The twig fame and your collection of owls also draw my eye!! So much fun! Oh, and your posting from the MoMA drew me in to Kiki Smith’s work- she is spectacular!
    I am so glad you are enjoying your days of crisp weather- it is a divine time of year. I bet the marshmallows were yummy! 🙂

  3. It is only neat because I just cleaned it offf yesterday (and I do wish that today it was as neat in this picture!)
    Things pile up. Brushes go unwashed. Its never ending!
    Isn’t Kiki Smith to die for? She really really is.
    I hope your school year has started off good, it only gets better from here! Happy fall to you! (we do have a few weeks to go I think)
