More experimenting in Procreate. I am totally having fun with this app. My daughter just got herself a pair of rollerskates. I have the song “Brand New Key” stuck in my head. I LOVED that song back in the day. I hummed and sang that song when I put on my strap-on skates. I later advanced to real quads in a roller-rink. Lots of fun memories!
I had fun working on this painting. A classic rotary dial phone! Who grew up with one of these? I love the feel of these phones – the weight of the handset, the twirling of the cord, the sound and feel of the dialing.
I definitely was happy when we got a push button phone – it seemed so advanced! It was much easier to make a call that would not ruin newly manicured nails!
I am a little behind in my postings for the #30paintingsin30days challenge. This vintage turntable was my Friday the 13th painting. I forgot my phone when I was in the studio so I could not capture the image. On Saturday, I totally did not get a chance to do any art 😦 – I had a flat tire that morning and it just threw my day off. I will head over to the studio shortly and will see what magic happens!
This is day 12 and getting to the halfway point of the #30paintingsin30days challenge. This is a watercolor painting. I got the Miles Davis album for Christmas/Hanukkah and just adore listing to it. I have to keep remembering to take action when the record ends on a side (otherwise, I face nasty looks and lectures on record needles from Derek). I’m so out of practice listening to actual vinyl!
We are setting up our turntable in our family room. I love the pops and the feeling of satisfaction of lining the needle up just right! Sure wish I was at home right now, listening to “Kind of Blue,” and snuggling with the kitties.
Please join me and my talented studio mates for our Open Studio Holiday art sale! I have my original paintings, prints, cards, magnets and pins for sale. Lots of unique and affordable gifts.
December 8th 6pm – 8pm.

In addition, we will have a donation collection to aid the victims of the recent Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. We are devastated to know about the tragic fire and want to do our part to support the artist community.
ArtWalk 2016 is now a thing of the past. It was fun and I could see myself doing more art fairs in the future. Yes, I did sell some of my art and got lots of nice, encouraging feedback. I enjoyed hearing people reminisce about loved ones who sewed. I also discovered that there are many fellow button lovers out there! It was also great to have some of my dear friends visit my booth.
Now, I am going to focus on getting my Etsy shop up to speed. Today, I spent some time photographing some of my artwork on a wall in my home. As you can see, I had a lot of help with my kitty assistants. This is why I have to work in a studio!
