Spineless jellyfish

On the today show the other morning, Al Roker called someone a bunch of spineless jellyfish. Can't quite recall to whom he was referring, because I was thinking of this:

Rent a goat

I hear tell that you can rent a herd of goats to mow your grass (or weeds) in some parts. What a delightful idea. This little scene comes to mind...


Here's the art journal version

Here's one from a while back, when our minds were on all those dirty old germs and viruses.

Stay inside, the microbes are here!

Obedience training

An idea my dogs find quite amusing.

White foxes on ice

Here's a piece of wood I picked up at Michael's for a Lilla Rogers Bootcamp project. I wasn't keen on the idea of painting on a different shape at first, but then realized later that there were lots of possibilities. I wish now that I would have created more of a wood construction for this, but I'll add that to my list for later, I reckon.

Foxes on ice, that's nice

A double-decker dose of Valentine romance

Yup, it's that time again. Love certainly does turn up in the oddest places. I'm thinking, what could be better to serve your valentine than a nice meaty jello mold filled with a selection of sweetheart candies?
A heaping spoonful of love

Experiments in collage and other media

I have a thing for natural science lithography from the 19th century. I'm always grabbing images off of the internet and drawing inspiration from their amazing beauty. Here's a sketchy collage for a jungle piece yet to be fully worked out.

Deep thoughts were thunk

I don't often take the time to paint the covers of my journals, but every now and then, particularly at the dawn of the new year when one is inclined to feel compelled to put forth maximum effort... Here's my current sketchbook, almost used up, practically ready to be put to bed. So it's safe to put a cover on it now that there's such a short time left to be battered around in my bag. The journals I like best are from The Handbook Journal Co. I use the 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" size. I love the cloth covers and the paper quality. The only complaint I have about these is that over the years, the elastic band that holds the book closed tends to disintegrate.

Deep thoughts. Another art journal, cover inspired by condiments.
