The Super Blue Blood Moon

What a mouthful! That’s what we can witness tonight though. The super blue blood moon. What the heck does that mean? To break it down, tonight’s full moon is a “super moon”. This means the moon is actually slightly closer to the earth than usual. The moon is also brighter during this time, though the […]

The True Nermal

It’s a phenomenal feeling when your son tells you everyday for months that you got him the best birthday present he has ever received. This is usually the case though when it involves a kitten. It has been almost a year now since we have brought home that kitten for my son so I figured […]

The Meaning of Mistletoe

Smooch! That’s what you get when you stand underneath the mistletoe. It is much more than a shot at a free kiss though. In fact, it is a parasite, attaching itself to trees (commonly oak) and taking it’s needed nutrients from it’s host. Birds have a strong relationship with mistletoe as well. They build their […]

Winter Plans

The season is dying down. The snow has finally arrived and everything is now quiet. The animals have sought shelter and all the plants have wilted away. Autumn seemed short but it seems to get shorter every year. Perhaps it just feels that way because it’s my favorite season. Regardless, the winter weather has arrived […]

Inktober 2017 #2

I bought the book and started reading it yesterday. Wow…just wow. It just keeps getting creepier!  I’m excited to finally begin […]

Totem Animal: Cicada

I took a small break from ZIA’s and did a realistic sketch of my latest inspiration, the cicada. I have been seeing an abundance of them this year and learning so much about them. They are oddly beautiful. Like a, “Your so ugly, your cute” kind of thing. Their colors are so vibrant with an […]

Tanglepedia

I was able to take a trip to the art shop yesterday and picked up a little sketch book and a pen cloth to keep my zentangles supplies in.  In my newest bible, The Joy of Zentangle, there is a lot of tangles to learn. The authors of the book suggest to have a key […]

Free Spirit WIP -VI-

I was commissioned to do a memorial piece of a beloved pet that passed away recently. I am truly sorry for their loss. I am still familiar with the heartache that accompanies such a tragedy. With the recent passing of Sasha, it is rewarding to be able to help someone else that feels the same sting. I hope I […]
