we're back.

it took about 16 hours of driving with a lot of traffic, but we all made it home in one piece from the sea. ada did amazingly well in the car. rarely a peep out of her. really. she's a keeper. ; )

squam-by-the-sea was, just like you may have already heard, a m a z i n g...
really was.
you'll see what i mean when i show you my pictures. (tomorrow)
so. much. goodness.

we have been very busy since getting back home, and today, instead of writing out my "oh so very long list of stuff i want to remember to share with you that i have in my head but have yet to find the time to actually sit down and write it all out in a nice way" blog post, you'll have this one, a visual "bits and bobbles/miss (or is it mish or misc?) mash of what i have been up to in the past couple of weeks" post. phew. that was a mouthful.

mostly 'cause it's been a long, but good, day. so there. truth be told.

here it goes.... ( i think you'll like it this way better anyway)

ada and the prints

fun at jen's studio.
see more shots here

everything was all yellow

everything was all yellow,

pinks and grays

then it was pink and gray.

across the street

and this is what i see on the way back from yoga.
captured with my iphone.

lovely sights like this made it easier to come home from the sea.


and lastly, for now, just dreaming about


this space and teaching a workshop there.
or some space like it.
maybe, just maybe.
this winter.

what do you think?


  1. I would love to come to a workshop! I live in Central Mass and never get to go to all these groovy-looking workshops that seem to always take place too far away (why is all the "funnest" art being made in the Pacific Northwest? - with the exception of yours of course)and cost too much $$ for this starving artist. Keep us posted please! Ada is darling!!

  2. OH YES! A workshop this winter would be SO wonderful! I had the good fortune to take your class at Squam/NH - it still inspires me every day of my artistic life. The thought of being able to recapture that experience again sends me over the moon; I would make the drive down from NH for this!

  3. OMG. That space looks AMAZING!!! I wish I lived close to you and could take a class in that space with you!! xoxo

  4. OMG that space!!!!! I will back up...that baby!!!! hee hee. Ada is such a delight. On to teh space...where is that? It is amazing. Oh I can so see you having workshops in there and I see me- photographing in a space just like it;) Maybe next to you. xoxoxo's

  5. um, thea, TOTALLY forgot to tell you about this when we got together the other day.... more details to come my dear! : )

  6. wait--I am not anonymous!

  7. great photos and i would LOVE to take another workshop with you!
    be well!
    hugs and smiles~ jill

  8. Yes! A workshop in MA would be wonderful! A great winter interlude to look forward to :-). Looks like an amazing space too.

  9. Yes, workshop! And where is that? I can guess, but there are so many spaces around here. Love it!!!!! Ada made my night, btw. Cutest. Can't wait to see you! And I still haven't told you about Ingrid covering Brittany Spears' Toxic and dancing to it. Hilarious!

  10. Love this space, if you can get it do it, and use it

  11. Is this the space you were telling me about? If so, we need to get together before our scheduled meeting date. I'm DYING to talk to you now -

  12. Ooh! That space is fabulous. It makes me want to design the workshop / work space AND paint in it :)

    P.S. Congrats on the book! Haven't stopped over here in a while!
