Veronica is Moving to Spain. Fantastic-o!

A lovely couple from Spain have decided to adopt my favorite brunette, Veronica!!! Veronica has been packing furiously and busy with errands and such. She got her passport, three new books, and an English to Spanish dictionary for the plane ride. She is super excited to meet her new family and explore Spain. Right now, she's in the other room mumbling to herself and practicing her Spanish. "Donde esta biblioteca?"

Bon Voyage, Veronica! We'll miss you lots.

Mixed Media: Art Casserole

Lately, I've had an itch to scratch. That itch involves making big messes of the studio with paint, glitter, pastels, ink, gesso, paper, and glue. Everything but the kitchen sink. Layers, layers, layers, layers. Layers upon layers. Soooo, satisfying. I'll be framing these for Strange Folk where they'll make their debut. Maybe by then, all the dried paint and ink will have washed off. Maybe.

Strange Folk

Goody goody gum drops! It's that time of year again -- time for the totally tubular, simply fantastic, Strange Folk Festival! I'll be sweatin' to the oldies in the studio crafting my little heart out in prep for the big weekend. I have a few new tricks up my sleeve and I can't wait to debut the goods at the show. Yipee! I hope to see you all there.
