Blue faced rocks

our pockets filled with rocks some of the rocks had happy faces, others cute, gross, and weird. My oldest very excitedly asked me, “Is this Graffitti?” Lol. We put them in planters, next to crosswalk buttons, in the crooks of trees and while the family was engaged in mild acts of artistic expression. Michi called me.

Rocks in Vancouver

We found a bunch of lovely rocks in Vancouver and decided to talk to them. They all had something to say, so we painted them. Drawing on rock, the group photo. The rocks where a skinny arms reach out the window and I couldn’t resist them… so it started with a flat odd rock. First …

It was hot

I came home early it was hot. Flicked controls on the thermostat. Nothing worked, which way is on? Heat cause it’s hot, that doesn’t sound wrong. Open a window, fiddled with the lock, left or right, it would not pop. Sweat, just a drop. That was it for me. I did care who might see. Flung coat and sweater over my head, shed skirt and tights passed …

Early

Fifteen minutes that’s all I get. Just time enough, time to sit. It’s just three take-five’s rolled in one. Early is on time for some.  Just me, my time to breath. I see a spot and feel the breeze. The sun warm on my skin, feet in sand the cool below. Alone but soon they’ll show, In my head I’ll greet them all, “Hello, and welcome y’all”. This is …

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com

Doodling while eating my noodling.

Internal combustion, eat berries, and creating pink methane. Then you fall in love buy a sofa. When your away your dog is sleeping in your spot. The reindeer have EPA restrictions, and green camouflage. Deer are color blind that’s why they have stylist. A good stylist get kisses. Love is like a reindeer kiss.
