in the sea

This Summer I've been a busy bee working on a new series of work I'm calling "in the sea", which is of course still all things nature related.
I'll be listing five new paintings from this series tomorrow, Wednesday, July 29th in the afternoon. Look out for them in the shop!
Here is a preview...

All on wooden plaques with a glossy finish.

Two more paintings from this series are in the works and will also be listed soon... one of which is a cute little whale!

into the trees, into the trees...

The past couple of weeks I've taken some back and forth trips in New England and took too many pictures of foresty landscapes. Dreamiest ever? Yes!

summer projects for meow meows

Before I forget, there is a new print up in the intheforest shop! The original is a birthday gift for one of my friends which I haven't officially given to yet...so Courtney if you are reading this don't look <3
A little here and there I've been scheming up a new project for all of my friends and family with cats (there are a lot!). Last December for the holidays I made catnip pizzas which were a hit...

For Summer I came up with watermelons & limes that will be completed and given out soon!

The summer update for the shop is getting close and I will be announcing that next...

into the night we are fireworks

Late last week the city of Somerville had their postponed 4th of July fireworks. I usually avoid the crowds from the Boston fireworks so it was fun to see any kind of fireworks from my own apartment window!
Beyond the trees I took some dreamy pictures...

And one of my favorite songs/videos..."fireworks" by Siouxsie & the Banshees

More summer images & creations coming soon!

rainy day love

Two days in a row of thunderstorms which I secretly love!
Even though going on outdoor Summer adventures is on the top of my list, here are some indoor things to love on a rainy day...
1. the basil plant that isn't quite ready yet but is starting to resemble real live basil!

2. leftover zing pizza from last night (augustus classicus)...anyone living around the Somerville/Boston area must try this pizza!

3. the back room to our apartment that is finally coming together. It houses mostly Dan's records and music equipment but also includes books and odds and ends left around from the move. here is a glimpse:

4. best of all...nooschie's grump face <3
