the painting-a-week challenge is still going strong ! above is “flowers” — i tried a little something different & used only watercolor without any pens or pencils with a lot of color.


“peace” — oil on tiny canvases (so cute !!)

“grace” — still-frame ballerinas (just watercolors again!) i also posted a little animation of this one . . .

wip : rooftop sweater & sketches


I’m still working on this knit-in-pieces, light blue, silk & angora cardigan. I spent a large majority of this summer knitting it on nyc rooftops, hence the name.
