Another pattern doodle... seems like there should be words inside those openings.
Here is a very indulgent project I'm  doing for no other reason than pleasure!  It's the once a year wool, hand sewing project I seem to do when I need comforting. 

PS-  Our naughtiest Welsh Corgi, Mr. Knightley has been gravely ill since Sunday and has been in the animal hospital since then.  But, he may be well enough to come home this evening.  Plus, we may finally have a diagnosis of what's been ailing him today after plenty of tests.  Sickly dogs are quite expensive!!!  Thanks for the doggie prayers and keep them coming if you can spare a moment or two :)

Summer Singing

A sort of newish woodblock print... hand painted.  The summer is sweltering by now.  91 degrees this afternoon as my son and I had a bike ride.  I am making books at the moment and will share some here in the coming month.

 Our dog (the baby of the family) is now very sick... he's at the pet emergency hospital for the evening.  Here's hoping he survives another crisis.  The dog is the biggest problem child I have ever known.  Mostly worried about our daughter who has never lost a pet and is very attached.  Doggie prayers welcome here!!!

Open Book....

 My amazing daughter

Self from the past

A tiny peek into my sketchbook... I've been living in ink this summer.  Immensely enjoying drawing with the dipper pen into a bottle of ink and just letting what happens... happen.  I don't really share this with anyone in my 'real life' so, there you go:)  

Hope you all are savoring every little last minute of summer madness and sultriness.  I am trying to squeeze every tiny, last drop out if it.  Back to school looms, for better or not.  Even though I'm a grown up, I still can't make up my mind what may be better... endless summer or the excitement of the new (school year).  Hmmmmnn.

Dispatch from My Summer Mindset...

Hello!  It has been a long pause between posts but... thought I'd share a few paintings.  This one is acrylic on canvas... about 28x40".  Unfinished feather and tree mandalas of sorts.  More to come...  These will likely be in a show I'm having in December in Liberty Lake, WA.  It's great to have the luxury of several months to paint and ponder for an upcoming exhibit.  Hope you are having a lovely summer!


I am posting on Flickr quite often these days if you'd like to meet up with me there... click the link first link at upper right hand corner :)

Beaded Braclet

Making seed beaded things lately... It's just an experiment.  I like how it's going.  This has been brewing inside ofe for at least two years now... Feels good to get it out!  
Happy hump day and happy spring :)

Bench no. 1

Here is the other bench which goes with the peach/brown one in a previous post.  I'm going to be looking for more furniture to paint... It's an unexpected pleasure:)

A Woven Friday...

Me and the dog at home, listening to records and figuring out my daughter's 'kid loom' she got for Christmas.  (I secretly wanted one too...). 

A perfect way to spend a little quiet time while the kids are sleeping in.  It's another 'teacher day' and it's raining again.  Board games and popcorn, perhaps???

Happy weekend:)
