This is the first of a new weekly series on the blog. Here, you'll find a summary of what I've been doing, reading, listening to, maybe even a recipe and other odds and ends. Sort of a wrap up of the week. We'll see how this goes!
Here's what I've been...
I was thrilled to get back to the Home Art Studio Project this week. As I am scheming on new work, setting up some commissions and between events, it felt like the perfect time to get back to it. Clearing the cobwebs and organizing my supplies was blissful. I really love this view from the space that looks out at this weathered wall.
This week I am working on some art projects while also trying to get the studio going and the tidying done. I'm behind on the garden, behind on setting up the workspace and behind on purging the office of meaningless things. I hope to tackle this stuff and feel like I made some progress.
I'm trudging along on the 100 Day Project. I'm looking forward to today's art, which is my recommitment at working on this project daily until it is done. I have sold a lot of the art from days 1-20 of my 100 Day Project and thanks to all who purchased one!
I just found a new art supplier, Trekell & Company. Their panels, brushes and more are made in the USA, something always good in my book. I haven't placed my order yet, but I am looking forward to trying out their products.
I just bought this gorgeous galaxy painting from Elissa Sue for my dad for Father's Day. I know he'll love this celestial painting since he loves astronomy and dreams.
I just ordered a jar of Todos Organic's botanically infused coconut oil. The vanilla and whole rose one just arrived today and I just love it.
This week, we made tacos with butter lettuce as the shell. This recipe inspired us, but we didn't follow it. Instead, we used shredded chicken, mushrooms, raw carrots, salsa and guacamole. They were actually really good!
If you want to see a different form of art, watch the Chef's Table, an original Netflix foodie series. Chef stories told in the most compelling and cinematic way.
Finally saw Surfwise, a documentary of an eclectic surfing family. I can't believe this movie is from 2007. I guess I have been wanting to see it for years now. It's a really good look at living differently, a subject I am always interested in.

I heard Mike Maxwell interview Porous Walker. Porous is super funny and I love his insights on having young people around along with his humorous approach to art.
