with a little art you can...

ok, that title popped in my head because of paul mccartney's song, "with a little love you can..."

this weekend i was able to make progress on my current canvas that i'm preparing as one of my pieces for juneau's annual gallery walk in december, make a 2-sided 5x7 nature journal page, start a numbers journal page, and finish up some swaps. in other words, finally, after 3 hectic weeks, i scored some art time! the best thing about it is how it makes me feel: calm, serene, happy!

here's some of the work i mentioned.

Did you hear about 350, the global event that took place Saturday? My youngest son, David Moriarty, organized the Juneau action. Here's a newspaper article published in this morning's paper. He's quoted throughout. I'm so proud of him!
He has better photos, taken by Shadow Hotch. Her photos will be the ones submitted to the global headquarters.

can't keep up

i know i haven't blogged. nor have i made art. i've been so busy that i'm behind on my blog, my art, my housework, my paperwork, my life.
this weekend i read (most of) a book about reversing diabetes. so i'm about to embark on the plan: no animal products. no vegetable fats (nuts, avacados, oils). i hope i can do it. i really need my health/life/energy back.
i've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. i just can't keep up. speaking of chickens, here are a couple that just might be about to become famous.
ok, i gotta get dressed, throw on makeup, get my daughter up, take her to school, go grocery shopping, come home + put the goods away, straighten the house, go pick up some prints and look at some proofs, get gas into my rig, meet a friend for lunch, come home and try to get something done, go pick up my daughter. come home and crash. then watch oprah. (yesterday's show was so fun!) then make dinner. then if i'm not too tired, make art til DWTS comes on at 8. if i am too tired, i'll just watch something on HGTV and read. then i'll watch DWTS and chopped. and then bed.

Here are a few ATCs (2.5"x3.5" Artist Trading Cards) I made somewhat recently. Two are/were for zentangle challenges. The 4 girls are for a flowers-in-their-hair swap. The flowers are stamped; the remainder of the work is hand-drawn.
