whose woods these are I think I know
One of the funniest things about the south is the way people react to snow. School is cancelled, people freak out and a "winter storm warning" goes into effect. And when I say snow I mean about 1-2 inches. Maybe it's because I am Canadian and in Canada 1-2 feet is considered an average winter day. It snows from November to April and nobody thinks twice. Anyhow, I am so happy that it snowed here, especially for Christmas! Plus, it gave me a chance to wear my new coat which seems made for a snowy day.

Artists I Like Vol. 1
It's systematic but the idea of tracing things on sidewalks and layering them to make a painting is so amazing! And the forms and colours are beautiful.

Painting 2: Surfaces
I had so much fun with this painting! I feel like it's truly me and it expresses who I am as an artist so perfectly. I love texture and I think this painting illustrates that I know how to use it. It also feels very map-like to me.
Conceptually I didn't really have an idea because the point of this painting was that the surface WAS the concept.
This is a detail. This photo was taken under the studio lights and the top one was taken under regular florescent lights. The real colour is somewhere in between. I need to photograph this outside in natural light!

Triple Latte Scarf So pretty! I love all the different shades of brown with the simplicity of the stripes

Back from Atlanta
I think we are outgrowing Atlanta, the heat, and the south altogether... I think our next trip should be somewhere cold, with magnificent architecture, comfort food and lots of snow... how about Moscow?

Neapolitan Ice Cream!
So I purchased some Swish DK (double knit) yarn from knitpicks in the appropriate colours. I am going to knit it in a rib stitch and I want to make it really long- at this rate, it just might be ready when it gets cold!
I wasn't sure on which colour to get for the vanilla. The ivory was too light, but the cornmeal is a lot more yellow than I thought. I think it will be ok though.
