The Universe

I just finished writing my daughter a note to hand to her when I leave her at her University.  It’s all about trusting that the Universe shall provide and when it does not, then that’s when her parents come in.  But, seriously, the Universe does provide and I am a firm believer in this.  I […]

Good Girl

I must admit that I have only had “boy” dogs in my life but every now and then I am asked to illustrate “good girls!”  Meet Lucy.  Is she not the sweetest thing ever.  I really loved working on this commission.  Look at her sweet face and that darling pink bone name tag and pink […]

August air

August air is different.  We are all feeling that Summer is winding down and many of us are preparing for a new year of school or sending off spring back to school or in my case to University.  How can my baby be heading to College, already?  Last week, we enjoyed a few days together […]

happy paints

I am often asked what kind or brand of watercolors I use, and the above boxed set of Pelikan watercolors are one of my absolute favorites.  They box up like a double-decker bus and the colors are bright, velvety and truly transparent or opaque depending on the amount of water you use.  This is not […]

Summer time

Summer time, Summer time.  I hope that each of you are having a great Summer and taking some time off or at least some down time by the pool, the ocean or near a body of water.  Thanks so much for taking time to pop in, to leave a comment.

hello hydrangeas

Have you noticed all the hydrangea’s in bloom?  I just love seeing them on my walks or jaunts around my town.  The blue colors are always so impressive.  Do you have any tips or tricks on how to keep them alive indoors after you clip them?

Beautiful Summer Blues

June is such a beautiful month, full of many colors but one color that stands out for me in June are all the shades of blue.  This was a quick watercolor but I wanted to share it with you today.  We just had a huge rainstorm and water was pouring down like crazy.  It has […]

yoga love

I recently created a space to practice yoga in my home.  Each week, I have a wonderful yoga teacher, Daria, who comes to me for a class which is inspiring and invigorating.  There is always an enormous sense of calm which washes over me in anticipation of practicing yoga.  I have found that I immediately […]

things you love

I still get so excited when I walk into this little shop in Hastings-on-Hudson.  Maisonette opened in 2012 or thereabouts and I created this illustration for Maria which hangs in her shop. It is brimming with things I love and want.  Maria, the shoppe keeper has a slogan, “Surround yourself with the things you love.” […]
