everything is Amazing and no one is Happy

frida friday - art post archives   (my art posts)


wyeth's sketchbook has been posted online. he chose the theme science project gone wrong.

for grandmother's 90th birthday i gave her the handmade quilt i have been working on for the past year. a great deal of it stitched at her house sewing with her. can't imagine a better home for it.



the site button is fully operational now, grabbing all my creative things posted here and archiving them.


a long time in the making. but with a break from the kids i got a chance to sit down and finish this little guy. drawing time = happy time.

there maybe nothing more flattering or terrifying as an artist to be asked to design a tattoo. i have been asked before but this was a "big" one. one of our employees loves my handwriting and digs my drawing skills. when he saw my bird sketch book he described what he wanted and this was what he got. he jumped up and down when i gave him the design. i think that means he likes it.



making website headers has become one of my favorite creative things to do. i love, love, love making them for blogs and laying out loves and/or personalities with the art. this was done for my sister in law's birthday last week. her son's name is jonah, and paisley is her daughter. pretty cute, huh.
have fun setting up and blogging, courtney!


i recently dedicated a moleskine to birds. oh it feels so good to draw!


about cyme






"I sat at the typewriter for the first time and fell in love with the words that emerged like drops, one by one... every drop became something that if spoken would have flown away, but on the sheets as words, became solidified, whether they were good or bad."
