Little Bits of Home

June 21, 2012

Afternoon sunlight, growing things, new sheets (is there anything better?), outside easel painting. Little views of our world lately.

(And a note about our art display -- looking at this area makes me happier than happy -- what feeling is that exactly? Super happy? I call it my nearly free art wall. The pineapple-butterfly picture was given to me by a dear friend from Hawaii. The blue Stonehenge picture used to be my dad's and had been tossed into a closet. I told him one day, I'm a-takin' it and he was cool with it -- I've been gazing at this piece of art since I was 6 years old. I love it so. The Chinese calligraphy picture is my name and Andrew's name done in Chinese characters, made by a street artist in Seattle for about 5 dollars. The pencil drawing of baby Julia was done in Italy by a street artist -- my mom and step dad went on a trip during Julia's first year and had it made from a photo. And the Very Colorful Pictures were done by Miss Julia and those pictures make me smile every single day. They're the first and last things I look at when I wake up and go to sleep!)

  1. I'm getting jealous- between you and Vanessa's beautiful art gallery walls and the fact that we've been out of easel paper for over a month now...

    It's all beautiful and light and fresh- really really wonderful!

  7. I want to take our easel outside! ... Do you leave it out or bring it in? Wondering how I could make an outdoor artist space that could take on the elements.

    1. Hey Christina!! No no, we bring the easel in after the outdoor time is done -- I only take that puppy out on a really nice day and then rarely, b/c it's a pain to get thru the back door :) -- It rains every 5 minutes here so it would be a small disaster if we left it out all the time! Your idea sounds wonderful, I'd love it if we had a climate that could safely harbor an outdoor arty area :)
