quietude - a state of stillness, calmness and quiet in a person or place.

there is much to be said for keeping your mouth shut at the proper times. i am of course only saying this to myself, not to you, dear blog readers.

RIP - Andrew Wyeth

"Really, I think one's art goes only as far and as deep as your love goes." - Andrew Wyeth

so sad...i imagine he lived a wonderful life though...

Illustration Friday - Pale

"your skin is pale white and ice cold..."

(anyone recognize the reference?)

Just added: I got a Fan Art award for this little watercolor at an absolutely hysterical Twilight book series fan blog - thanks gals!!
hope i can make this a real link...


I am always impressed by the resilience of life, by the blade of grass that grows between two rocks. Where there is determination and will, there is a way, right?

Considering Death

We should consider death every day. And this is not the same as considering suicide. Death is the thing that is coming so act accordingly. Do not step back, do not give up on what you really want, do not waste time on what if. These are things i do not do. So i am starting to consider death, to give it just cause.

Illustration Friday - Contained

The portraits Klimt did of his lover, Adele, looked like he had her wrapped up and flattened in gold, contained (?) by circles and squares. i tried to get that same feel with my girl.

this is not for the haters...

thank you fellow bloggers and friends for visiting my blog and looking at my art these past few years
thank you
for every kind word
for calling a spade, a spade
for saying giving up is for stupid people
for reading ramblings like this and for continuing on
for hearing my side of the story, and for believing what i say
for inspiring me with your own incredible art (or your art of living)
thank you to anyone that's ever tried to encourage me
thank you for being fabulous and beautiful

Here's to 2009! A year of transitions maybe? We can take it though, right?

Illustration Friday - Resolve

Resolve to begin each day in a positive way and then carry it through as best you can
