Christmas presents reveled. This year a group of the Lovely Lula girlfriends met out for some holiday cheer and we exchanged handmade gifts. I made each of my friends and lovely little painting with words that I felt reflected where each individual is currently at in her life. I wanted to mark this time by noting it in paint.Â Here are the paintings that now live in my girlfriends homes. Ready forÂ a new year!

I love a music festival and it’s even better when it’s in my town so I don’t have to travel. This past weekend was the Summer Ends Music Festival at Tempe Beach Park. Two of the days got rained out and had to be moved inside the Marquee Theatre so I only have a few photos but the music was great, the company was the best and the inspiration was plentiful. I spent much of the weekend so inspired by the music that I drew and drew and drew in my little travel notebook.
Some of the drawings:
My lovely friend T celebrated her birthday recently and hosted her own party with a shoe theme. The night was filled with ladies, champagne, good food and all things shoes. In honor of the event I created a painting for her using the theme. I also made a companion card to go along with the art. It was a fun project!
While camping in Forest Lakes, Arizona in theÂ Sitgreaves National Forest on theÂ Mogollon Rim which is part of the White Mountains this Summer I kept a journal of our activities, things we saw and did. They are pen and ink drawings in a small bound journal. We camped for 14 days and out of it came these 17 drawings.
