“The Hedgepig is Concerned About the Weather”


I painted this just after Christmas,
sitting on the couch with my fiancé.

It was a nice sort of a night. 🙂

Little Bits:


One of my favorite things about having time off is
getting enough thinkspace to paint again.

So I made these two darlings:





Penelope and Doris are going to be a part of a story.
I don’t know the plot,
or how they will meet,
but oh,
I am going to have such a good time making this little world!


I do love vacation.

Sigh No More:


I’m looking through Audrey Kawasaki’s blog,
and feeling very…left out.

The last month has been full of wedding,
and more wedding.

I haven’t sat down in my room,
“Kind of Blue” playing,
and painted since …June?

Too long.

I miss it.
I miss the quietness.
I miss how painting makes me feel still.

I have another wedding coming up in eleven days,
but I think I might take a time out tonight,
and just paint for a little while.

I Made a Pretty:


“…Freedom tasted like seawater and oranges.”
-Tana French, ‘The Likeness’

That quote ran through my head the entire time I was painting this:

I painted a great deal of this while talking to close friends on the phone…
which is rather unusual for me.

I hole up in my room and shut everything else out and off when I paint.

It was kind of a welcome change,
but not something I’m likely to do on a more complex
(or frustrating)

This one treated me pretty well,
for which I am grateful.

Watercolor on cold-press paper


I need to paint.



(and I hatehatehate applying to jobs.)





Today I:

(well, technically two days ago)

Painted this for The Boyo

Because Hallmark is expensive. And they no longer make blank cards.

Make a wish, honey…
I hope it comes true.

I made a cheesecake! And it was TASTY.

(Oh yes,
I painted this on my new easel of AWESOME
that The Boyo and several dear friends chipped in to give me for mah birthday…
and it’s perfect.
Thanks, loves.)

More Working:

paris when it rains

it gets a leetle disasterous...and yes, this was *totally* inspired by Christina Hendricks in LA Magazine

James is here with his (really great) crew,
setting up for a short film written by our friend Sarah Carman–
I got to do wardrobe and set design,
which basically meant trashing my livingroom
and placing questionable posters on the walls.

I have been twitching for the last couple of days,
loooonging to straighten everything up–
it’s going to look fantastically bad on camera!

Whatchy’all up to this weekend?
