friday field trip (from the sketch book).

emeryville, california

for those of you who don't know who WILMA is, she is simply my most amusing muse. she is a very funny human little girl, trapped inside the body of a jack russell terror terrier. and i love her as if i birthed her myself.

i'll drink to that.

my job is rather strange. i interact with hundreds of people that i never actually get to meet. mostly, people are quite wonderful in their communications and transactions, some not so good, and then there are those like ML who make my job worth it completely. a customer that you just *click* with, have great interactions with, who appreciates your time and talent, someone who just "gets it." ML wins my customer-of-the-month award, hands. down. this person actually sent ME this beautiful bottle of wine a few days ago. i was dumbstruck. i'm so used to doing the giving, that i forgot how NICE it is to be on the receiving end. THANK YOU so much, ML . . . and though we have never met in person, my cyber crush on you lives strong.

a really good show.

THANK YOU so much to everyone who came out to the FABULOUS SHOW on the weekend. it was such a treat to see so many old friends and to lighten my load for the new year. i have a few more days of shipping out orders and then i am SO HIBERNATING for ONE WEEK. i'm looking forward to 2012. though i already have some projects to start on, my new year resolution is to WORK LESS + PLAY MORE.

i have a *thing* for great leather bags. i can't seem to get enough of them. this one, that i bought from neiko designs, is one of my all time favorites. it's a great size, super sturdy, and it smells nice.

let there be light.

i have some new votives HOT out of the kiln.

i'll be taking these to the renegade show this weekend.

speaking of light, i am just now beginning to see the light at the end of the holiday tunnel and i'm heading STRAIGHT towards it.

it's beginning to look a lot like winter.

i love the sparseness and darkness of winter.

these latest new items of mine remind me of just that.

this is from a new series of work hot out of the kiln. i want it to resemble a page out of my sketchbook. as you can clearly see, i was always the kid who couldn't stay inside the box. in fact, i recently saw the father of a childhood friend of mine who told me that growing up, i was like a wild indian . . . i'm not sure what he meant by that, but i'll take it as a compliment !

friday field trip (from the sketch book).

berkeley, california

i purchased this little ceramic bird at a trax opening last year. i was so drawn to it and now it hangs on my own wall. i love the detail and i love fowl. guess who ELSE loves fowl . . .

WILMA does. she loves this time of the year when the fowl is good + oh so plentiful. this was her thanksgiving dinner. a whole turkey leg.

she can't believe she ate the WHOLE thing.
