  • 12/12 Back in the Studio

    Grandma has been in town for the last month and I have finally been able to spend a solid chunk of time in the studio, the first in over a year! I've been letting go of the tight graphic nature of the work from the past few years in favor of a looser more painterly style. I'm trying to just be spontaneous and forgetting about how it might look in the end. I'm looking for the "magic" in the trick as I like to think of it.

  • Beckett July Hensley born 11/14/2011

    Felcity and I welcome the newest little artist into our collective! So needless to say we've been busy with her and that's why it's taken me over a year to get around to posting this.
