about me
I'm a very out lesbian working security for a subsidized housing apartment complex. Thankfully a small one. I love art, making art, viewing art , talking about art. For the most part I work in pastel, but have also worked in watercolor, oil, and I am attempting some textile. We'll see how that works out.

Where I'm At

Hey Everyone! On Aug. 20th I took a Pastel workshop on painting clouds in pastel with Jerry Brown. Check out my photos to see the results!

The class was fantastic, and Jerry Brown made sure he got around to everyone in the workshop and gave some wonderful tips. The picture above is a photo (ok, a poor photo) of my third painting.

Sketching is vital to art. I admit to being lazy at times, hey, who isn't? Instead I've decided to challange myself and anyone who actually reads this blog to a sketching scavenger hunt.

This will work in a similar way to the photographic scavenger hunt, the 26 things list, on the web at sh1ft.org/26things/ . Yes, I admit to shamelessly ripping a list of 26 things right off their previous lists. If you like a photographic challange, check out the january list. It is very creative ... read more

The Monthly meeting of the Gateway Pastel Artists was tonight. Spring isn't even here and there are already three (3) plein air events to plan on attending, a possible workshop to get in on, and if at all possible a convention to truck out to. Hey, if I can come up with $1000 I'll sleep in my truck for the chance to get to the Pastel Society convention. Personally I think it should be held in a more central location like ...uh... St. Louis? H*ll I'd settle for western Kansas. It would give so... read more
