Late last night I finished what was then an untitled painting. I’m so pleased with it. It’s not because I think it’s amazing or something crazy like that (I do enjoy looking at my work) but because in it I can see tangible results from the time I’ve put towards painting in the last 6 months or so. I’m improving, sometimes slowly and others fast. I look at this piece and can say, “yes, I’m getting better at this.” and that is satisfying.
I hope you enjoy viewing this as much as I enjoyed painting it. On to thumbnailing my next painting! Read More
Excited to announce I’ve finished a new painting, “The Unmarked Road”. Anson came up with the title and has followed it’s development from a thumbnail. I think of them as exiled sisters of some long forgotten order. But I’ll let you imagine up their history. And keep reading, there is a video at the end! (Edit: a print is now available!) Read More
Hi readers! It’s been a while. We have been busy filling up out time with even more tavel. But before I get to that I need to finish our trip to Indonesia.
We woke up this morning to our surprise with a beautiful blanket of 6 inches of white snow outside. Today is Anson’s day off, his one rare weekend day where he thankfully doesn’t have to go into work. We had already made plans to stay in but needed a few things from the convenience store at the bottom of our hill so this afternoon we bundled up and trekked down. Read More

Back at our room now waiting for the rain to let up, and enjoying some more time creating art and writing. We got up pretty early this morning to beat the breakfast rush at the hotel’s buffet, and it was worth it to not be bumping elbows with people while trying to choose what to eat. I still can’t get over how delicious the coffee is here. I’d thought PNG coffee was pretty good before, but this is even better. Read More

Today was a bit of a R&R day for us. We got up late, had a lazy breakfast, and headed back to the room for a bit of pool time and then spent a creativity-filled afternoon in the room. Naomi used the curtained bed as her “art den”, and I enjoyed the warm humid afternoon out on our patio with the sounds of the fountain in our swimming pool while reading, writing, and thinking.
