Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah they were all yellow”
My daughter, Jess couldn’t say yellow when she was young, so she called her yellow blanket her “lello” .
This piece is called ‘yellow planet’
I looked up the symbolic meaning of yellow in the internet and got this.....”Yellow, the color of sunshine, hope, and happiness, stands for freshness, happiness, positivity, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment, remembrance, intellect, honor, loyalty, and joy”
This piece is called ‘hope floats”
- Makes it easier to take decisions and think clearly
- Stimulates the nervous system
- Sharpens memory and concentration
- Encourages communication

My process for my found poems is just this:
My son, Jace, ripped apart an old book... Zane Grey. So I decided to use it for the poems. I randomly rip out one page and limit myself to only the words on that page, just one side. No flipping. Cut them out, glue them down using a glue stick and tweezers. A quick and fun way to fill a page in my sketchbook. It is almost like fortune telling.... you don’t know what you have to say about your life or your day until you are limited to 100 words on a page. Plus I think the vintage book factor makes it more fun.
On top of sketching daily I have also been taking a photo a day.....

And though I never put it into a book I may still do that some time....
Then I started the 100 day project and created a “joyous watercolor” everyday for 100 days!!!!!
Then the cabins inspired houses with quilts
And then a 3 color series
And then these yellow circles that I dreamed up well laying awake with insomnia
And then these baby images came about
And really there was more art than this but if you want to see almost all of it you can just follow me on Instagram where I post daily.
We enjoyed our garden and did some canning
But the hardest part if the year was having all my children, but Jace, move not only out of the house but across the country. Bran the oldest was already in Arizona but now Jesse, the next in line, moved out there as well.
They drove across the country together and I loved seeing all their photos but I was so anxious about their trip. I thought if they didn’t get killed they might kill each other. But on top of that type of worry it was just hard to have them gone.... kind of like the worry I had during each of their senior years.... like you are losing them or it’s too late to do all the things you meant to do as a parent. It really was quite a difficult time for me.
But they made it there, and they are both doing great!
