Matchmaker, Matchmaker

Happy Small Business Week!!

Come check out 'Strike Away Show' at Paxton Gate this Friday!
There will be several hundred matchbooks made into art in this wonderful group show, 

The theme for my submissions is 'Matchmakers,' 
and I tried to work with the already designed books.

White Winter Hymnal

It's spring, but I got my last little bit of winter in a few weeks ago. 
It snowed in Tahoe & I sketched it.

Warrior Man

A little sketch from my neighborhood bar, Elixir.

I was watching the Pelicans (my home town) v. Warriors (my current city) NBA playoff game.

Put A Bird On It!

Spring has sprung and the birds are chirping!

Here's a lamp I collaborated on for Pottery Barn Teen. 
I drew the bird turn-around & a sculptor overseas made a mold. 
Now you can buy it in a store or online!

the Beigeness

It's been a while since I posted some sketchbook drawings, so here you go:

Island in the Sun

That's where I'd like to be this week.

A girl can dream.

And, you can grab one of these adorable, jewelry holders I helped design for Pottery Barn Teen, 
if you can't make it to the beach either.

Strawberry Fields Forever

We are embarking on one of my favorite times of year...
strawberry season.

Field trips strawberry picking, strawberry Abita beer, 
and hives from eating too many at one time come to mind.

Bought these at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market from Lonely Mountain Farm
Check out their produce on Thursday and Saturday mornings. 

And, while you're waiting out April showers, check out this film:

It has strawberries in it, too;)
