score!

February 8, 2010

Spent the greater part of last week in Florida, where upon, my brother finally returned a sketchbook that I had left in his truck several years ago.  It’s like catching up with a long-lost friend.  Here’s what I was drawing on 5-16-06.

A sleeping Vayda-monkey, that is.

I  think I’m destined to have one someday…although, I’m sure Ms. Vayda would not approve.

Merry (almost) Christmas!

December 19, 2009

Nick and I are closing shop and enjoying time with friends and family!  We’ll be back soon with a bevy of goodness to share…and after all the presents are opened and surprises unveiled, a ton of new work to post to this poor idle blog.  Wishing you all a warm and wonderful Holiday Season, and of course, thanks to all of you who have allowed us to have such a great year!

Went home to Amelia Island this weekend.  Dad gave us the 4×4 tour of some areas I had never seen.  A real treat…and it keeps with the theme I’ve been cooking up in my head.  Now if I can just squeeze in a moment to paint for me.

This view of Fort Clinch reminds me of fairy tales.  I love the tree and the color of the sky, divine.

The southern most tip of the island is filled with dunes, and curvy swirvy dead trees, that no doubt will become driftwood one day.  It’s a peaceful place.

Even the Vayda-monster took a moment to relax.  Good times.

fire

After working in the yard all day, Nick decided to have a small daytime fire to burn off a few twigs.  There’s something very soothing about a fire, even a daytime fire.  Vayda does not agree.

She glared at us from the corner of the yard.

She made mean faces…

Speaking of faces, does anyone else see this?
