Tomorrow I’ll turn 20, which is honestly pretty exciting – in some unexpected ways. It feels kind of weird to tell people I’m 19, married, and no, I didn’t *just* graduate high school. It’s totally cool, but there’s always that awkward moment when people are like “oh!”. I remember when I was turning 10, I… Continue reading Two Decades
Continuing with my fairy theme, I decided to use the 3 5×7 (thin) canvases and create a small series – I’m calling it the Season Fairies. Spring, Summer, and Fall are represented in the 5×7 format – I didn’t do winter because I already had a snowflake 11×14 that did a great job of capturing… Continue reading Season Fairies
“She’s my fairy” “But there’s no such thing as a f-” “Don’t say that. Every time someone says that, a fairy somewhere falls down dead!” – Peter Pan Fairies are strong beautiful creatures whose power keeps the world in order. They bring change, seasons, and put the world to sleep at night. They are timid,… Continue reading Why Fairies?
I made it! This morning I made it to level 70 questing around Netherstorm. I’m super excited. I just have the rest of Netherstorm and Nagrand left and I’ll be done with outland and onto Northrend! I think joining a level 5 guild may have helped also. I’m very proud of myself, I usually top… Continue reading Level 70
I decided to spend today playing WoW and cleaning (because my hands were too cold after washing dishes to paint). So I was hanging around Ironforge doing my last Love Is In the Air quests when someone on the trade channel was looking for healers. The other day I just completed my Paladin’s Holy talent… Continue reading Raiding and Leveling
Alex has me down to a science now. He knows the day after I spend all day in bed I will go on what he calls a “psycho cleaning” binge. Which is basically when I wake up, walk out of my room and discover that my apartment looks somewhat similar to tornado wreckage. There’s dishes… Continue reading psycho cleaning
It’s already time to start thinking about art shows for this year – I actually sent in an application to one show, but I won’t know if I’m in for a few weeks still. But as I was feeling weak all day I thought I would do myself a favor and plan out what I… Continue reading I have a plan!
I sent in an application to be in an art show in April, and decided to go with my fairies if I get in. So today, I thought it would be fun to make a time-lapse-ish video of what it looks like for me to paint a fairy on an Art Card. I’m right handed… Continue reading The Making of a Fairy
Something I noticed about Valentines day is that the guys usually go unnoticed. Not that I’m complaining about having AWESOME Valentines days, because I do, and Alex makes sure of that… but I love him too, and don’t want to be the only one feeling special today. So I got him Valentines. Not chocolates or… Continue reading Valentines Day
The last night in Oregon was stunning. We drove through the desert to this place overlooking the town we had been staying in. The bright clouds clashed against the dark sky creating a perfect backdrop for the final scene of our business there. As we were driving I was wishing I’d be able to somehow… Continue reading A Block Of Sky
