Music Mondays – Enjoy The Silence

An oldie but goodie today from one of my favorite bands.

Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode, one of their best live performances of this song. Would have loved to have been in Milan for this!

Enjoy the performance!

Gordes, one of France’s beautiful perched villages in Provence. Breathtaking as you approach, so lovely to walk through, oh so hard to leave.

These three pieces are from a series of small, four inch square monotypes I made, using the ghost imagery of the previous work to build upon for the next. I created the works using two mylar circles of varying sizes which I inked and placed in different parts of the square whole. I used only two colors, black and yellow ochre in the pieces.

Music Monday – Magic

It’s late in the day but it’s a perfect song for sending you off to bed.

Italian Hats

Roman Holiday

Do you ever feel like you’re wearing too many hats?

These days I feel like I’m juggling so many projects and everything on my to do list takes twice as long to complete as expected. Being sick with a bad cold all week hasn’t helped. Although it did allow me time to play Portal 2 all the way through again. Except for the final battle, can never beat Weasley on the final battle!

Bookmarks 1-5

My First Studio

My First Studio

Endings are just beginnings for something new. This is the thought I hold fast to as I contemplate leaving my art studio.

About seven years ago I opened the School House Studio, forming an artist co-op with three other artists. It was in the Metchosin Elementary School, the old portion of which had been converted into The Metchosin Arts and Cultural Center. The image above is of…

Primavera

Spring is finally here and today was a beautiful sunny day on the westcoast, with lots of flowers already blooming. These blooms were shot on the island of Elba, just outside Napolean’s summer residence in exile, the Villa Napoleonica di San Martino. They look like a kind of rose but unlike any that I had seen before. It had just rained that morning so the flowers were still wearing…
