I so wanted to illustrate a cute Christmas greeting to send to my friends, or at the very least, post on this blog. But here I am, already three hours into Christmas day, and I still haven’t had the time. So instead, I’ll share the awesomest Christmas card I’ve ever received:
From a new friend. She’s been learning about Christmas while also learning to speak, read and write English. And she sings an adorable rendition of Jingle Bell Rock.
Here’s a recent painting, one of a series of portraits I exhibited at the Culture Crawl. This girl was my favorite, out of all the portraits I created. I don’t know what it is… maybe the messy hair, or her up-turned nose, or the frumpy brown dress, or the awkward mittens…
I was a little sad to say goodbye, but she went home with a very nice family that will appreciate and treat her well.

I wanted to write this epic post about the Culture Crawl, that invaded my studio two weekends ago… but haven’t had much chance to catch my breath… So in lieu of epic, here are some delightful photos that Joey took over the weekend:
Me in opening-night excitement/exhaustion-addled delirium.
Wall of art. Notice the red dots beginning to appear by some of the paintings? Red dots are beautiful…
Cheap(ish) art can be lucrative! Some of these were the first to go.
The best sister in the world (don’t even try to tell me yours is better) made these amazing cookies for all my guests.
Yep, that’s me. I’ve left this up on my studio door. It gives off a “hm, she’s so professional” vibe, don’t you think?
