Hi friends, happy Friday!
Since I'm really terrible at waiting and being patient, coupled with the fact that I'm *really* excited about some new stuff I've been working on the past couple weeks, I'm sharing a little sneak peek photo with you of some brand new one-of-a-kind creations that will be available in my shop
next Wednesday. Eeeee! I get little butterflies every time I look at that photo. I don't even care that it's a little bit blurry.
Since returning from Morocco
, I've been itching to work on some pieces that are a bit different from my usual (I've been feeling in a bit of a rut and slightly bored with my work lately, so I've been thinking about how to shake it up)
-- these new pieces have definitely scratched that itch. I can't wait to share them!
Check back here on Wednesday morning for full pics and details about the new goodies. I think you're going to love them.
In other news, I've been working on my little daily drawings
each day this week -- these are drawings #3 and #4. I'm digging working in just one color. (Usually I use All The Colors, as you're probably aware. Limiting my palette is not my forte!)
Just some doodles. Yesterday's drawing was done while laying on the floor in the basement, while Juneau laid on top of me. #ilovecats
In non-art-related stories, and since I can't resist a good rainbow, here's a photo from my morning run this past Wednesday:
My friends and I got caught in a crazy early-morning downpour; we didn't let it ruin our run (we smiled and laughed all the way through it!) and were rewarded at the end by this beautiful rainbow. Not a bad way to start the day.
Man, I love Portland.
Tomorrow night Ryan and I are running a 5K together (his first race ever!) called the Starlight Run
. It's going to be such a fun time! There's a parade at the end, and you know I love a good parade
And I couldn't not share this, because it's too funny:
Yep, that's Fabio. At Whole Foods. Again
. (What's with me and taking blurry photos? Sheesh.)
This is the second time I've happened upon him at a Whole Foods here in Portland. At 2 different stores! Ryan and I stopped in after a morning run last weekend to pick up a few things, and there he was, selling his whey protein powder in all his Fabio-ness. Haha! I can't believe I've just stumbled across him twice now; I literally don't think there is a more random celebrity for me to keep seeing. I imagine now that I'll continue to see him every couple years from now on. I should probably introduce myself next time so we can become friends, right?
