Introducing... My Art Assistant Carmela

I would like you to meet my new art assistant, Carmela. I wasn't even looking to fill such a position at this point in my career, but she just won't take no for an answer!

She's definitely a self starter. For example, here she is warming up my paper, and I didn't even ask her!


She also decided to take inventory of my art supplies one day, all on her own.


Sometimes I have to put my foot down. Over the weekend she tried to convince me that large canvases were a good place to lean up against to take a bath, so we agreed to disagree. She works for free though, so I can't really fire her :)

Giving Back





In the spirit of giving this holiday season, I decided to get a bird feeder! As the birds in my yard have provided unlimited inspiration for my art, I decided to help out the family of cardinals the stick around through the winter!




I have since learned that there are many more birds around this winter than just a family of cardinals and, although our yard is starting to resemble an Alfred Hitchcock movie, it's always good to give back!

Happy Holidays!
