In The Studio

I don't usually work with music on but it's been nice to have some Blues playing in the background while I painted today.  The perfect mug of tea helped things along too.

As you can see from my work table I have some journals on the go at the moment.  I also have two finished pieces that I hope to add to my Etsy Shop soon.  I'm currently pondering over what their titles should be.  

Some of you may know that I've been working on a book of self published poetry.  I finally completed it and am waiting to receive a proof copy in the mail.  I am excited to see what it looks like before hitting the publish button. 

Still very cold here in Ohio and it 'hurts' to venture outside.  I find myself longing for some sunshine and it has me thinking about places to vacation.

. . . . . time for another mug of hot steaming tea I think. 


  1. I like all the textures in the last piece!

  2. I'm sure it will be a wonderful experience to hold the proof copy of your book in your hands! I too love the textures and symbolic lines on the last piece.

  3. tea is essential. i like mine best when spiced with cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. but any tea is good.

    come on over here and i am happy to share my (excessive) sunshine.

  4. Oh that will be so fun to see your book. Love the heart with the keyhole in it!

  5. the form in the first is cool...the mix of woman and tree....its different than your usual which i like....

    got my letter...smiles. will return one soon.

  6. Ugh, I know, I froze my face off just walking out to get the mail today!

    The paintings are both so cool.... And I can't wait to see your book.

    Stay warm, someday, we will have to have tea together!

  7. I love the lady/body/tree...

    That is my favorite :)
