The Colors of California

The moon captured my imagination as I sat at my writing desk distracted by the beauty of a day ending and a night just about to begin.

Peaceful Buddha

I originally did an etching of this Buddha head but I messed it up and made his lip give a viscous Elvis Presley snarl. The second time around I used styrofoam board instead of steel plate and he finally came out how I had envisioned him - peaceful and full of grace.

Art Works!

Check out this interview with Everett Peck, creator of the animated t.v. series, "Duckman" and "Squirrel Boy."  This is the first of a series of interviews with working artists who actually make a living as artists, hence the name, "Art Works!"

Vince was taking photo's of the Peach family but the biggest hams were the two dogs. They were so cute I had to put a picture of them up to share with you.


Visiting with our dear friend Everett in Escondido.

We walked from Devils Postpile to Rainbow Falls, a gorgeous walk through a canyon with a river. It was worth every effort to get there including those really steep stairs to get down to the falls. Excellent! VInce's photograph captures the way I felt when I was in wonder and awe of this natural beauty.

Thursday Nights At Barnsdall

The first print is of a lake in China.

I usually etch in my class but since I wasn't prepared to make one last week I made some block prints instead. My dining room is full of Buddhas and it's making me feel happy :)

Dog Days of Summer

We went to Doggy Style's French Bulldog Soiree this week where we photographed about 15 Frenchies running around like bats outta hell. It's one of the cutest things I've ever seen and my face was sore from smiling the entire time.

The party's over

Bark Magazine

I helped my friend Alysia Grey Painter round up some actors for an article she was writing about people who make a living making animal sounds. I was interviewed too so check out the article.

Back Cat

We were taking a walk when this kitty came running up to us as if we were the best of friends. It only took a moment before it was purring on Vince's back.

Here are a few prints I made that were inspired from one of my oldest possessions – an old Chinese dragon that I bought in an antique store when I was in my early 20’s. I’m not sure what its purpose is but it had a hole in its head that I stuck a candle in. I’ve always felt like this dragon is one of my protectors and he sits on my mantle watching over our house while scaring away evil spirits.

Here's a few metal etchings I recently printed. I liked the first one because I can't tell if it's a man or woman. The second etching is of Han, a protector warrior who chases away evil spirits. He does a great job!
