taking flight into art, love, and life (the blog)

Around here lately...

Quick Selfie before I head out to do some Christmas shopping.

The last couple of weeks have been busy with holiday buzz: date nights, lunch dates, crafty show dates, shopping, and more. I bought my first cowl (seen above) from a local artist (wish I had her name, but I lost it) and I'm in love.

Work in progress in the studio today.

I have discovered the show Scandal. Been watching it on Netflix while painting. Love that show. Love painting while watching TV. Feels indulgent and good!

I've been painting, a lot. Recently, I discovered that new TV show, Scandal, and I watched the entire first season via netflix in one sitting while painting about 4 paintings all at once. Bliss. LOVE watching TV and painting at the same time. That was a long day of painting - about 8 hours - which I almost never do, but I was so engrossed in the show, I couldn't stop. Super productive...


Lovely Christmas with the grands. True did not let his new microphone out of his hands the entire day. Best gift ever. 


Lately, when the grands come over, he orders them to his room to play. If John or I try to enter his room, we are ordered out. Well, okay, then!

Stormy day in PDX

We've entered the rainy season, friends. Above is what it looks like 90% of the time. I know, I know. 

The sun is out today!!!!

But when the sun comes out, everything stops and we go out and ENJOY it. 


Friends, I cannot believe how quickly this is happening, how much he grows. He is the sweetest, dearest little being. 


And they keep my heart open. I'm a lucky girl.

Very "short but sweet". Love your 8-hour painting day! How much more precious now that we are moms, right? Merry Christmas!

Looks like you had a lovely Christmas.

True is so adorable! Love his little outfit at the end of your post (the black and white checks). He just needs an old school pair of Vans to go with that outfit!
