Welcome to my blog! I've stared at this blank screen long enough! The start of something new is always exciting and a little scary. This adventure is no exception! After downing a quarter of a pan of brownies, I have mustered up the courage to share a little bit about myself and my hopes and dreams for my blog.
I will put one thing out on the table right away. I will not be posting any photos of my feet. I know that they are the rage in the blogosphere--cute toes jauntily peeking out from the corner of a photo--feet on a fab hardwood floor or romantic old porch or toes buried in the sand. And it's not because I'm against foot pics, per say. It's just that you don't want to see my feet. Really. I danced for years; and while I think that they are beautiful, I would not subject you to that type of punishment.
What you will find is a sleep-deprived, mixed-media artist and new mom who is trying to make mommyhood and art coexist! (I just know they can!) And I think lack of sleep is adding a certain flair to my art! So I hope to share my pieces with you and a little bit about my process, as well. Oh--I am so NOT Super Mom. If anyone has any advice on how to keep my 13-month-old from scaling my easel and shredding my collage paper with abandon, I'd love to hear it!
Here is a photo of my latest painting titled, "Alice's Adaptation." I hope you like it!
