In which Holly and I watch the inauguration. There might have been some tears!
Something was different about today. Maybe it was the nice weather. Maybe it was getting my boots resoled. Maybe seeing my friend again after a long time – or all of these things together. But today was a really good day. It had a good energy. And John and I created a really cool abstractContinue reading “Good Energy”
Today I drove down to Galveston to deliver a dog portrait commission and a bunch of books. Also to hang out with my friend. We had an adventure in mind, which involved a visit to the backyard of a beautiful old house. There we found an ancient orange tree – obviously not as old asContinue reading “In Which an Old House Gives Us Oranges”
The day started with unexpected good news. Also, it was sunny and warm for once. The dog and I enjoyed a longer walk than usual, and in one of our neighbor’s flower beds we saw bluebonnets! They’re early this year! Dare I hope winter will be cut short? Because winter mixed with the pandemic isContinue reading “Owls and Bluebonnets”
It’s been a week since the rat poison incident, and I’m grateful that my adventurous little dog is fine. I do, after all the research I’ve conducted on the possible effects of the poison, have a newfound empathy for rats.

Today’s collaboration with John, which we painted over Facebook Live. Koi fish! I think they turned out colorful and pretty. And we had a fun show!
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!
What’s your favorite number? Mine is 7! So when a 7 magically appeared in the abstract painting John and I were creating on Facebook Live, I was very happy. It was a fun beginning to my 3-month residency in the Chrysalis and we plan on doing more live painting over the next 4 days. YouContinue reading “Lucky Number 7”
This painting is inspired by one of my favorite pictures, which John took of me three years ago when I was starting out in the Escapist Mentorship Program and painting in the Chrysalis with Bobby. So what if I told you I’m moving back into that beautiful space for a newly reinvented version of theContinue reading “Back to the Chrysalis!”
I know a little dog that found some rat poison in a back yard of an old house in New Orleans Saturday night. The poison was green and looked like hard candy. She only got to nibble on a tiny bit before I pulled her away. Still, everyone in our group was worried. I decidedContinue reading “The Allure of Rat Poison”
