Quilt Fight

I dragged my kids to a quilt show in October. They were not into it.   Each quilt photograph I took, my daughter photo-bombed...  Towards the end of our visit, fights kept breaking out for camera time and close ups.  I think of this one as a still life:) 

Happy Sunday!!

A Little Goya

Just thinking and feeling in images today. This etching is by Francesco Goya... I think it's from his series, Los Capricios. (probably the wrong spelling.)

New Skirt Selfie

I have this very fashionable friend who wears the greatest frocks, outfits, ensembles... etc.  She totally inspires me.  She even helped me find and order this little skirt.  So, new year... maybe me wearing some skirts and mixing it up from the usual.  I needed a little help from my friend:)

Happy New Year!!!  We all stayed up watching ball drop in NYC,  (this fascinates our kids... they can not make any sense out of the crystal ball, etc)  and all kissed each other at midnight.  Would love to read what some of you did last night... feel free to leave a comment anytime!!! 

note:  image slightly distorted due to dirty kid hand streaks.

Labyrinth of Trains

Since Christmas day, our house has literally turned into a labyrinth of railways.  You just have to dodge the tracks in the early am and not be carrying a cup of hot tea. 

Christmas was lovely and we had snow a few days later.  I am ready for the new year and have new ideas brewing for woodcuts and a special painting for a friend...  Happy Monday.

The Waiting

Just a little Andrew Wyeth to help us wait for Christmas.  My daughter keeps telling me it's the waiting that's so hard... and she's getting way to excited to wait anymore.  Happy almost Christmas Eve!!

Winter is Closing In...

I don't seem to have many words lately.  Would rather speak in pictures.
 I've always loved this painting by Breughel.  It's the ultimate winter scene - braving the cold and setting off for a hunt.  Have a lovely Thursday...
