I can't believe its the Holidays again. We have our heads down focused on the present.
 Thanksgiving came and went...a tradition of elaborate cooking and baking, feasting and sharing

 Eventhough we are experiencing a dry snow-less holiday, it is cold, and i drink ALOT of Earl Grey tea
Morgan and I made our traditional spritz cookies gluten-free...a friend told me they tasted like sand.
Meet the newest addition to my prized collection of kid created creatures...Mr. Turkey by Morgan

"dad! you have pie in your hair! "....
now that's a sign of a good time :)

Working on 10 LORDS A LEAPING for a month long show in Telluride as well as a delivery of new
art for Over the Moon  where I am the feature artist! 
2 more art/craft fairs this week 
Then, all this orange and yellow will give way to pine and  sparkle.

Little Red Riding Hood - Drawing Challenge

I finally did it, joined in on the Drawing Challenge, albeit a few days late.
This weeks theme: Littel Red Riding Hood hosted by Patrice.

I've been scribbling about this for years....

inspired by my own childhood classics
And into my grown up life living at the edge of a great wood...In my fairy tale, the beast is a misunderstood friend and it is he who is terrified of the girl!

someday i will write and illustrate it.

what is your take on this tale?

A Woodland Tale

where for art thou?

dear people,
I have been silent

it just doesn't feel right
to come up
and share


its just the nature
of diving deep down
to see what i can see
its cold at the Art Farm

winter's beckoning 
to turn inward
clothe the seeds
safe and warm...

.....and wait for the magnificent birth

i hold you all close in my heart,

holy moly, how time flies. its snowed lastnight and made me realize just exactly how much time had passed since I last posted!  illness, busy-ness and a crappy computer are all to blame.  as the holidays approach, craftiness trumps studio art. life goes on, middle boy goes to first dance and first born gets
accepted and offered $ to go to University. mama needs to make alot of crafts!!!

im working on a large commission that's too shy to show just yet.

life is nothing but full

wishing you all warm autumn love,

i am working on a large commission that is just too shy to show itself just yet.

i hope you are enjoying the autumn changes and bundling up against the promise of more snow!

Yes, it's me. I'm alive!  Art fairs, farmer's markets, commissions and outdoor wonderland have kept me away from my desk.  All this with a dollop of Crohn's disease. ; /
I have missed all of you.
Here's a peek for now.
an angel came to visit me in my booth at Carbondale Art Fair.

some of my latest Art Blocks - will be available in Etsy after this week.

lots os speckled fawns this year

The Art Farm looking back- my 3 sidekicks, Pearl, Ollie, and Blue (who is red)

The Art Farm looking ahead- this is my front yard with a skipping little 5 year old friend.

Goodbye Duke

Duke the wonder horse is on his way to greener pastures today. 
He was the gentle grand- dad of the herd.  Picked on a bit, off alone alot.
He was the one we'd pile babies on, ride double, bareback, backwards, stand on him
and hug for long spells muzzle to forehead.
Duke had freckles and a kind loving heart.
WE will miss you Duke.

With great love,
your human family,
Tate, Stephanie Rosie, Roscoe and Morgan.

Drawing Challenge : Fairy Tale

"our lady of the honey bees"

"our lady of the forest"

"our lady of the quiet"

"our lady of the bluebird's song"

life is a fairy tale.
the signs are everywhere.
little surprises hidden and revealed
in grass
in sky
in the friends clad in fur, wool and feather

remember this little tale?

tales abound at Tatjana's !

April so far cont...

on the Art Farm, a large portion of it is spent inside. inside from the cold, inside my head...dreaming of images, creating and inventing.

As soon as the snow melts we venture outside
not with skis but horse trailers

excited and cautious of the ever fickle mountain weather we prepare the garden yet debate the planting

this year, however, the sun came early and blessed the ground with green and buds

the air promises us a long season as we look around and assess winter's damage .( there is always alot to be done!)

and get back in the rythmn of farm life .
piglets coming soon. :)
yee haw!
 on the Art Farm, life is busy. spring and summer bring me the most joy. for it is when my dreams in paint come to life.

Drawing Challenge: Aquarius

Norwegian Creation Myth

pondering mythology

Unce upon a dream...

i sense winged beauties spiralling

from an
unknown source (pic)

Aquarius, blue, water and wisdom
I think of my mother
our Mother
and the infinite mystery

Its homework for a book project
a bit of a secret for now
but you will be seeing it more and more!
