The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,

Commissions and The process

On commissions

I once had someone say in shock when I said I don't do commissions " but don't you want to sell your work?"

goodies in the mail

I got a lovely surprise when I won something on Judith's artsy blog, which is now hanging on my wall next to my wishing doll shrine. On the other side is a lovely postcard of Casey Klahn's work. I would say my doll is in good company.
Thanks Judith I am so enjoying your beautiful painting.

Ink wash study in sketchbook

 No, not talking about the folk singer but that sudden feeling you get in your gut, that heavy dull ache that throbs like a pendulum, back and forth eating away at your soul when you hear someone you love is hurt. My son was shot in the eye with a bb gun. It was just one of those bizarre accidents but it was lucky it was a plastic bullet otherwise he may have
