June Artist Work Night

File_000 (34)I’ll be at the studio this Thursday – June 9th for Artist Work Night. I’m not sure what I will work on next. Of late, I have been drawn to musical themes – instruments and lyrics. I’m sure that I will keep going in this direction.

This is my travel pencil/pen box. It totally sums me up – playfulness is something I highly value. My daughter Emma added her touch to this box when she borrowed it for her own use (hello, orange pencil!).  I love that it’s in there – a connection to her earlier days. There’s also a clarinet reed holder in there (not sure why). I still absolutely adore the Powerpuff Girls (Buttercup is my girl). It was fun to get reacquainted with this box when I used it at the Figure Drawing Marathon. Hope to bring more playfulness to my work!
