  • I don’t have much new to show around here because I’ve been working on a project for someone else, so I’m throwing back to a year ago! When I wasn’t super pregnant and my studio didn’t look like a hot mess 😂🙈

  • Happy Thursday, lovelies! It is a grey, overcast morning, and I’m sitting in the cushioned window seat @bordertown.coffee , a place that gives me wonderfully Hogwarts feels, sipping an oat milk rooibos latte and snacking on a banana chocolate chip muffin. (Did I just say snacking on? I meant it is already gone because I devoured it. Haha!) I have some projects to do, but I wanted to start my day just painting for fun, for me, and so I thought I would share this with you, too. You can see that the flowers I encountered on my recent walks have inspired some of these fun folksy flowers! I’m just working with indigo watercolor right now to focus on the shapes and spaces, which feels really great! I keep thinking how fun this would be as wallpaper in a small bathroom with a gold framed mirror... wouldn’t that be fun? I hope you have a lovely day, and remember to take the time to do something that makes you happy today!

  • For this #throwbackthursday I’m once again revisiting the January wood firing with this double-faced jug. Face jugs (sometimes called ugly jugs) are a traditional Southern folk pottery type originating with African slaves. There are various theories as to their purpose, including being apotropaic vessels (to keep away evil spirits or to keep the alcoholic spirits inside safe from children) or gravemarkers. They are most common in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. This is the most elaborate one I have made so far, but I am continually drawn to the two-faced motif which has been found throughout human history. This vessel is unglazed, and the difference in color on the two sides is from the wood ash present on the part facing the flames. .

  • Abstract.  Painted  this as a background but like it as it’s own piece. I’m gonna live with it before I paint a cat or bird on top. What to do?  #abstractart  #folkart

  • Hump day! I'll be at @vintagehomesouthport this Sunday again, for one last local crafty before making the pilgrimage to #SAM19 next weekend at the Anglican in Liverpool. Busy Busy! I'm currently doing the "do I have enough stuff, should I start something entirely new, what am I forgetting?" hustle, which is always fun on a hot Friday afternoon. Except it's Thursday!! So that's not tooooo bad 😆
