Two nostalgic pieces. One from a few years back and one finished this weekend. I used

to work at this place and it was fabulous. If you like sculpture and jelly, come on up to Maine and visit Nervous Nellies. https://www.nervousnellies.com/

This year's school Halloween decorating is done!

Happy Halloween! My first poster. 18x24 Canson XL. Really didn't like me trying to lay down a sky,

but I like the funky wind effect. I fretted for weeks over the hat and shirt, but they came out great.

I think I'll laminate this guy. Might be easier to hang that way. It's going on the bulletin board.

Falmouth, MA. Watercolor pencils in a 5x5 Pentalic journal.

I'm looking for reference photos to paint. This time it's autumn. If anyone has any to share

I'd love to see them and possibly paint one.

Visited Boston on an Art trip recently.


I'm struggling with my bulimia, just told hubby that and he laid his go-to reply about self-control and willpower on me. Then, when I tried to explain the real root cause is low self esteem he shut me down by acting like I shut him down because I never listen to him. What-the-fuck-ever!! He won't see my therapist with me or go to a Smart Family & Friends meeting because this is my problem, albeit one that causes trouble for the family.

It's not like he doesn't love me. He adores me. He's just an unempathetic bootstrapper who wants me to follow his advice on fixing myself. I'm going to keep trying to dial back the self-defensiveness and calmly explain what I need from him.

Had a good talk. He's still struggling but open to the idea of approaching my binge urges with love and reassurance. And yay, me. I stayed out of the food while waiting for halftime so we could wrap things up!

Any time I smell patchouli, my mom is with me again. I keep some next to me when I paint so we can

share that time together, at least as an echo of what might have been. Now I need to find some British Sterling aftershave. That would be so comforting on those days when I really need Dad's presence and wisdom.

17 and 12 years without them, and some days I still bawl like a baby....

One of the few silver linings was asking for this group to be created, and knowing my mom was the catalyst who allowed others to seek comfort here.

New studio lighting, plus some paintings.

Please help me build a YouTube playlist? I just stumbled across Caamp, the Otter.

I'm in the mood for folk and folk rock, esp a blue and new-grass/celtic vibe. What would you suggest, and what free steaming is a really good one to make my list on? Tia

(Found out about these guys when I accidentally tuned in to the Spectrum on Sirius.)
