My Fondness for Fake Flamingos

When I was a teenager we lived in this pretty white Queen Anne Victorian house. I loved having friends over, because it was really nice and it had a huge back yard. That was until my mom put up these plastic lawn flamingos. They embarrassed me to no end. They were so dorky and I… Continue reading My Fondness for Fake Flamingos

To The Beach!

I don't like the term "escape from reality." For one, when I go to the beach or chase waterfalls or drive anywhere, that IS my reality. Two, why does it have a negative connotation? Who cares if you want to "escape reality"? Who are you hurting if you not only escape, but move in? Three, why… Continue reading To The Beach!

Color Is Color

I don't know why I bother painting my nails. Yes I do. I paint them because I love color. Color is beautiful. All colors. Even a vomit green. Beautiful.

If you like my art… Continue reading Happy Easter

And I don't think they're actively trying not to like things. Maybe they just don't think about it. All of my friends know I'm an artist. (Strangers on… Continue reading Should Your Friends Support You Even If They Do Not Like Your Art?

Stepping Out

I did it. I stepped out of my comfort zone, just like I said I would. I used patterns and prints to add a bit of depth to my canvas. And there were flamingos and pineapples involved just like I said there would be... RuPaul is definitely my favorite of the four. I can see… Continue reading Stepping Out
