The Original

I have drawn these big headed, pregnant dolls for as long as I can remember. Last night as I was looking through old letters and photos I came across one of the originals. Thank goodness my Mom kept everything! This was drawn when I was four years old. If you look closely, the baby, in the womb, is wearing heels!

I am very inspired. I feel like a new creative channel has opened up for me. I am excited and energized. This is a sketch that I worked on today. This will be part of a bigger picture. She is pregnant and scared. In her belly there is a squid. She needs to save herself.

I have been exhausted and super busy. I have had visitors from out of town and have been away myself. Just wanted to check in and tell you that I have tons of ideas that have been brewing in my head, just must get past this holiday first. I hope your halloween is wicked! I am going to dress up as Princess Peach and my two boys will be Mario and Luigi, my husband, Toad.

The Bird Bowl

These birds perched themselves on an off white bowl I had. Someone built these cute little birdhouses for them too. Blues and neon green work perfectly together. All glazed and shiny. Take a look!

Hello, Titty!

I haven't done anything in a very long time. I've had visitors for weeks now and I find it hard to paint. I finally got around to starting and finishing Hello Titty. Here she is!

Hello Titty

I've loved Hello Kitty since I can remember. I am always inspired by anything Sanrio. I wanted to do something erotic and I came up with this sketch.

Done! Done! Done?

Okay, so I feel like it's done, but maybe not. I'll post it even though I'm not totally sure. I have a ton of new ideas for new paintings. I need to move on from this and get on with it.

The Outcasts

I started this a while ago, and I can't get myself to finish it. It's about being different, acceptance and wanting to belong. It brought back a lot of painful memories. I went to eleven schools in twelve years. I was always the "new kid". It was hard to try to fit in when you didn't even know who you were yourself. My sisters and I became masters of transformation and observation. We would come into a new school and bam, we transformed our clothing, language, accent, whatever it took. Maybe I'll complete this soon, maybe not.

I Told You So

New painting, no girls this time. I've been wanting to paint a fawn for a while, I was going to add one to my previous painting, "So So Tired", but in the end I didn't feel it needed it. This one is all about the fawn. The bird told the fawn something a long time ago, the fawn didn't listen, it happened. The bird came back to tell the fawn, "I told you so". You should always listen when a little bird tells you something, really.

Take a Peek

If you were to wander around a solitary forest you may run into this sleeping beauty. She was so tired that she laid down and took a snooze. She's laying on a bed of her own hair only to be bothered by a fluttering butterfly. She's done! "So, So Tired". It took me a while but I like the end result. Take a peek.

I thought a good backdrop for my tired girl would be a forest. I like the look of birch trees, they're so clean and graphic. I also darkened the sky, as if night were falling. I was thinking of adding some creatures, I'll see how it goes.

So So Tired

My newest will be called "So So Tired". It's kind of where I'm at right now both physically and mentally. The girl will be outside about to doze off into a peaceful nap. Exactly what I need.

She Made It

Bun-ny In The Oven has been in my head for a long time. I wasn't ready to paint. I didn't feel like it for a long time. You have to be in a very specific place to do so. Tonight I got there, all in one go and she's done. I love her. She's so beautiful and sad. It's raining, she's naked, and she's expecting a bunny.
