Silent Sunday


shhhhhhhh…. Sig is finally sleeping…..the life of an 11 month old GSP puppy ❤




Field Trip Friday

On those occasional days, when Mr S. has to work a few extra hours, I am able to go with him to the job sites. Most girls like pretty things like butterflies and flowers, well I do too, but construction, tools, machines, science and the arts, all relate to who I am as an artist. I LOVE to to find the basic elements and principles of design within the sites. I often think to myself, do the architects, designers and builders realize what a work of art they are creating? Will any one else see, appreciate, enjoy the details it takes to create such a public work of art? Do they see this as art? Or is this just another job? The schematics it takes to put each element together is a work of art within itself. As a public school art teacher for over 20 years, I always shared these ideas and concepts with my students. I wanted them to realize art is NOT just about “painting”. Art is ALL around, surrounding our everyday lives.

Look for it, Embrace it, Create it!

I have really enjoyed starting this blog, website and embracing the social media platforms as an artist. Your photos, stories and things that you share inspire me. Thank You for being you!

May your day include the elements you need.



Artist: Nature

IMG_4763Some days….you just need to get to the point and let Nature be the true artist she is.

May your Friday give you the pointed guidance you seek.

Much Love,


(ps….. that random green dot with glow…shows up every once in a while when I am taking photos out here at the Magical Moapa Mesa……not sure if it is my amateur practice photography, or the spirits trying to send messages, either way, it guides the day).

Abstraction …..

“red abstract and red abstract 2”
“grey abstract”

can be a distraction, or a LOT OF FUN not only to create, but for the viewer to enjoy. Playing around in the Magical Moapa “She Shed Studio” with a variety of different materials, ideas and styles.

Life as an artist means that you are flexible to try new things, be creative with inspiration and let the freedom of your mind and hands collide as they hit the paper!

May your day have direction, with little distractions, finding the abstractions to explore!

Love, De

PS….. There are more on my FB, Instagram, twitter or website:

Can’t stop…addicted

“all you need is love”
“yellow abstract”

I would like to find a sustainable income in the “muggle world”, HOWEVER my creative artist inner soul can’t stop creating during the search for what may be a “job”. I get the message of “if it doesn’t make money it doesn’t make sense”. Burned into my daily thoughts now. How to make money as an emerging professional artist into society may just be deep in my dreams, passions and desires….but the addiction to create….continues….

I LOVE LOVE LOVE being being an artist. It chose me as a child. At times I have reflected upon the thoughts……is this a Blessing? or a Curse?

My days continue. Reaching and striving for what is to be in this crazy creative world.

Thank You from the Heart of my Art and Soul for being a part of this journey!

Many Blessings for your day,

Love, De
