An Artist's home...

I recently celebrated my friend's birthday and throughout the entire party, I just couldn't stop looking around her home. She is an artist through and through and her home is warm and crammed with objects d'art, paintings, total uniqueness and my favorite of all: adorable living creatures! She has chinchillas, a cockatiel and has had hedgehogs, frogs even a tarantula! She is an incredibly creative, fun and kind person and one I don't see often enough,

She also has an enormous paper mache dragon head near her front entrance. We were guessing it was from an old Chinatown parade. If you've ever seen the infamous San Francisco street chase from "What's Up Doc", (hello young Ryan O'Neil...mmreow! ) you would likely think so too. Here's some images from Casa de Peg. ;)


Autumn skies

Even though I left summer kicking and screaming (the pool, the beach-over...WEEP!) I have always loved fall. Been taking so many long walks since September and love looking at the constantly changing skies. Dramatic grays against the fiery reds and oranges of the trees. Came back to my studio and created this from my imagination.
