Stars Lead the Way #100ittybittyblogposts

Tonight I was driven home under the stars of a southern California sky.

The breeze blew and the stars were constant.

The trees swayed and the stars were constant.

I was swept away and the stars were constant.

The moon was happy tonight.

One Strange Rock #100ittybittyblogposts

Recently my husband watched a series that I loved, called One Strange Rock. It’s all about our home planet seen thru science and the eyes of eight American astronauts.

They share their experiences in space in a way I haven’t heard before. I’m a sucker for nature documentaries and getting more deeply interested in space.

I really recommend checking our the 10 part series. It’s available to watch on National Geographic or on Netflix.

Please let me know the parts you loved. The astronauts stories were amazing!

Someone Else's Shoes #100ittybittyblogposts


Have you ever reacted to someone else’s great news in a surprisingly negative way at first? If so… did you sit with it and think, huh, that was weird. Did you ask yourself, why did that just happen? I don’t like that feeling. Where is that coming from and why?

I did, and then I asked myself, Do I Want to Be in Someone Else’s Shoes?

I’m not sure I know the answer to that question yet. I’ll have to keep asking. I’ll have to find my path forward. How about you?

Choosing Color - Learning Theory #100ittybittyblogposts


As I have widened my art practice over the last few years, I find myself thinking a lot more about color and how it affects us. I have always had a love of color. Strong bright and vibrant, or soft mellow and muted, they have all called to me in various ways over the years.

I am working on a number of new projects this year, all which depend greatly on my choice of color. I find myself wanting to go deeper and learn more about color theory. Here is a short list of a few books on color that I plan to dig in to over the next few months.

Books I’m going to check out:

If you have any more recommendations please leave me a comment, or drop me a line. I’d love to hear about all your color book loves.
