In the Studio | Painting Charlie

5 years ago, I created a painting of my son. It was a painting just for me - an image to remind me that no matter what medical challenges my son would face, no matter what I was called to do as his mother, that I - in the face of this huge duty - would also remember to keep making art.

And it worked. This visual mantra worked so well that I ended up making a career of it. And for a while, I stopped working on the painting because other things took its place. So it was important to me, that the first piece I attend to in my new studio space was this one. Today, I'll varnish it and hang it in my space!

What is Mine To Do? | #minetodo

After a week of horrific violence in Minneapolis, Baton Rouge and Dallas, many of us are asking "What can I do?" I too have the same question. The white community in particular is asking "What can I do?" Tracy Brown is an educator, activist and author who I have had the supreme pleasure to cross paths with a few times. Her book "Mine to Do" is beautifully written, actionable and available HERE. She also has a very active and affirming Facebook page HERE. I've posted Tracy's TEDx talk below.


 


This past week, my husband and I realized that what was OURS to do was to ignite a discussion with other white people about white privilege and the nightmare of white supremacy. I know that seems very heavy and overwhelming (and it is), but we're starting where we're at, with what we have. We started with a video on Facebook. If you're interested, take a look HERE!

Ask yourself, What is Mine to Do?

Linen Clothing for a Hot Summer

A little sewing inspiration as I sit down this week to make myself a few linen tunics and possibly a dress. Nothing I make will look as cute as these, but a girl can dream, right? Wish me luck!
