This week at work was crazy busy….two words for you: Book Fair. BOOOOOOOOO.
Of course I love that it allows me to have additional funds for my library, I do admit that it is one big pain in the you know what. I tried to brighten each day this week by reading Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski. I love Zagarenski’s illustrations…they are to die. She also did this book, which is fabulous as well.

Oh. My. Word.
Cannot explain why, but I am in love with these paintings by Ali Cavanaugh. A midwestern gal from St. Louis has an incredible array of these striped portraits right here.
I am loving loving loving them.

I am lucky enough to be constantly surrounded by children’s books in my new job. Children’s book illustrations are probably on my top ten list of things I generally LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I love that I will get to consistently read new books and see many books that I have missed since being young enough to sit in a library and look for hours.
How beautiful are these illustrations from Allen Say’s excellent picture book, Grandfather’s Journey, Caldecott Medal winner for 1993.

Wow…we made the right decision!
Now that we’ve been living back home for over a year now, I can say this with confidence.
After living in Asheville, Stavanger, Edinburgh, and Austin, I can honestly say that Kentuckiana is exactly where I want to be…and not just because it’s where I am from originally.
Louisville and the surrounding areas (yay Corydon!) are blossoming daily–full of new business, art, and culture. The area has all the comforts of city living, but all the charm of rural living.
I love love love this new video from Possibility City.

So I haven’t painted in WAY too long…
I’m starting some new projects today. I want to give my new easel a workout and break in the amazing upstairs studio space we have in this new house.
Like I’ve said before, whenever I am painting, drawing, cutting, decoupaging, etc. there MUST be music blasting. I’ve been getting a playlist ready for today and thought you might enjoy it.
