The baby for my Mardi Gras Surprise Boxes arrived today. So did a whole bunch of Mardi Gras masks, and I wasted no time in painting on them and making them look festive. I am so excited about how these boxes are coming along! Also, there have been more sales of Dogs with Bagels, andContinue reading “Painted Masks”
Can a socially distant Mardi Gras still be fun? I think we need to try to do make it really amazing! So I decided to make ten very special Mardi Gras/Valentine’s Day Surprise Boxes! These will each contain a copy of The Glory Days of Aimée Bonnard as well as at least two pieces ofContinue reading “Getting Ready for Mardi Gras”
I don’t usually care for memes, but the Bernie Sanders at the Inauguration ones are pretty funny. I even had to make my own. Other than that, it was a rainy day and I felt a bit lethargic and lost. I made a series of six small abstract paintings, kind of like a prayer forContinue reading “Where’s Bernie?”

Today’s painting created with John. This was a lot of fun, and ended up being minimalist in a very cool way. Also, it sold! And we’ll be back at it tomorrow!
