pie stand

When I was a kid I used to make mini pies with the apples and peaches from our backyard and sell them out of a stand on my street.  I also sold eggs from our chickens and homemade tea. The apples from our yard were always tiny and super tart.  Ever since those days I have loved a really sour apple pie with very little added sugar.

My days of selling pies and homemade tea tinctures may have passed but I still love to make pies. I have Kate Lebo and Pie School to thank for the most delicious recipes and pie anecdotes.  This photo was taken by my mom at Thanksgiving as I was prepping our apple pie.

This is snapshot from a recent trip to AZ.  I'll be taking a road trip to Marfa, TX next month and can't wait to see this new landscape.

I'm going to get back into posting photos of recent work on here.  This is my piece Marker from 2012.

Roar and pull, my thunderbolts!

I was walking along the waterfront the other day and saw that the Maritime Museum of San Diego is hosting a continuous reading of Moby Dick this weekend.  I am pretty sure the boat won't be floating at sea or searching for whales during the reading but nonetheless, it is such a cool idea and I'm hoping to check it out. 

Hello, It's Me

I'm back to posting after a short break and a new family addition, a wonderful baby boy!  Please keep an eye out for more regular posts but in the meantime I'll leave you with a little Rundgren.

Featured Artist Monday|Louise Nevelson

Image
Last week I saw these little charmers tucked away on the third floor of LACMA's American Art building.

I loved what Nevelson was doing with layering, color, and texture. These will stay with me for a long time.

one year later

I just hit my one year anniversary of living in California.  As a kid growing up in Phoenix, I always wanted to live in San Diego.  It seemed like a dream to be so close to the ocean.

It's been quite a year and I'm very much looking forward to what this next year will bring our way.

Fleetwood Mac - The Ledge

Sometimes these fan videos are the worst but I kind of dig this particular montage with "The Ledge" by Fleetwood Mac.
