Night Owl Confession #4.8.17-
This afternoon, I went to visit my beloved friends and see the first baby goats of the kidding season. When I arrived, there was one momma who had two babies just an hour before I arrived. I made sure to hold one of the newborns before I left and took this photo. This photo cracks me up for one main reason. This little buck is approximately 2 hours old, he can't quite stand yet because his legs are still wobbly, and yet he has the smile on his face like he is ready to rule the world. Give him a day, and he will be bouncing off the walls, making people laugh and climbing to the highest point in the barn.
I can totally relate to this little goat. This has been a very busy week, and I'm looking forward to a lazy Sunday. My body is tired, and I'm in need of my rest. But much like him, I know I have the twinkle in my eyes, the smile on my face and the determination to be someone who continues to make things happen. And even if I can't reach the highest point in my "barn", then at least I know I can always fall back on humor and making others smile and laugh.
i spent the weekend at the NOCO Hemp Fest working with my beloved friend, Jules. The first day was chill. We didn't have a lot of business, but had a great time people watching. The first day, we were being circled by a guy we affectionately named "Dragon Butt"
Dragon Butt was clearly our favorite. We couldn't help but wonder if he would return the following day wearing a new pair of jeans with a snake or tiger embroidered on his ass. Sadly, our time with Dragon Butt was limited and will never be forgotten.
I worked late at the Lincoln Gallery today, and was rewarded by this fun sight! I love working in downtown Loveland. #atduskweride
I'm proud to announce I was asked to speak during Loveland Startup Weekduring their "Getting Into A Gallery" segment. Loveland Startup Week looks like it will have a lot of great information and entertaining speaker for people experience. Click on the link below for more information.

Recently, I rediscovered "Peter Pan" and have become fascinated with Captain Hook and now Tick-Tock the Crocodile. This was a secret I kept to myself.
A couple of days ago, my beloved friend gave me a gift that "didn't resonate" with her, and insisted it belonged to me. So now, I have a little friend... or a part of a little friend, who will always give me a "high five" and say "see you later, alligator" when I leave my studio.
I gave it a job of holding a point of citrine to help attract creativity and happiness. This gift makes me appreciate how I can find beauty in everything, and befriend even gifted parts of beings. My lesson from my alligator friend so far are: 1- Be thick skinned. 2- Don't be afraid to open your mouth. 3- Appreciate being a grown up weird kid, and find others like you. No one wants to grow up and be normal. That's far too boring. 4- Finally, all you need is faith, trust and a little fairy dust.
I am proud to announce my mixed media piece titled "Invoking Revival" was accepted into the National Fine Art Show at the Lincoln Gallery during the month of April. This particular piece means a lot to me and I'm super excited to share it with many others.
I create one paper collage a year. The labor is intense, but the final product is a textural delight!
