I was feeling uninspired and didn't know what to work on, I forced myself to just sit down and doodle something. I had some random photographs from my trip to Uganda laying around on my desk, so I just started drawing an elephant. Much to my surprise, instead of the cutesy and doodley animals that normally come out, I had a (somewhat) realistic looking elephant on my page. And I quite liked him. And now I'm feeling inspired again. It's a lovely feeling when you can surprise yourself.

In November I completed three little paintings for a show at a local gallery.
My favorite one sold at the opening reception earlier this month, so I'm happy with that.
It was a scary (but good) feeling to put some pieces in to a gallery, so I hope to do that more in 2015.

I spent a few minutes just playing with watercolors. It had been quite some time, so it was fun to play with simple lines and circles. Then I scanned them and did a bit of playing on the computer. Lots of fun, I am looking forward to more of this!

I fell in love with the Marbled Clay Ring Dishes on A Beautiful Mess. I figured they would be the perfect simple little handmade item to give to my coworkers for christmas.
And I filled them with some chocolate goodness.
Wrapped them up, and added a handmade tag.
