“whimsy delight”
11×17, on wood

i’ve had a string of days that i’ve enjoyed by just full-on relaxing and doing whatever i feel like (and trying very hard not to feel guilty about not working more, either at my job job or in the studio). one day i went alone into san fran to visit the MOMA which made me want to go out and get gigantic pieces of wood to paint on. one of my favorite pieces at the museum was this exact piece by Robert Rauschenberg. man, it was cool. i love wandering the streets alone in the city. i found a great Italian cafe/deli that made me feel that i was truly in Italy, even if it was only for lunch. i love finding little nooks here and there and the people watching will never get old.

another day i spent reading about this artist that i had never known about until very recently. fascinating life, and fascinating art. love it. i keep going back to his work in this book each and every day.

i’ve seen two movies at the theater (go and see Pursuit of Happyness), one in the middle of the day on my cozy couch, and another one on that same couch later that same day with my boy (we love netflix). i’ve gone on two shopping excursions, one alone, and one with a friend. had meals at three new italian restaurants (i love everything italian, including the artist mentioned above who is, you guessed it, italian). and spent a lot of time in the bookstore. and lounging. and thinking. and daydreaming.

i really, really want to post a photo of what Laini and Jim sent for christmas, but i can’t as it would spoil the surprise for someone else who is getting something similar. i will just say that i love it, it’s colorful, perfect, and look amazing in our apt! although i don’t do christmas cards, i LOVE getting them in the mail and they’ve been arriving all week. photos of babies, words of holiday cheer, colorful cards. love it.

My wish for us in 2023

  Happy New Year, friends! I've been reflecting on this past year, what I'm proud of, what was hard, what I want to carry forward in 2023, and what I want to let go of. It has been a pivotal year for me, and I'm ready for a fresh start. As I move into this next...

The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

  Recently, I was ordering my usual oat milk mocha at my favorite coffee shop when the young man at the counter, a barista, casually asked, "Whatcha doing today?" I shrugged my shoulders and answered, "Not much, just a little work." "Oh, cool," he said. "What do...
