sheltering in place in 2020

while sheltering-in-place I have been painting more than I have since I was in college. I have all day without distractions, in between nature explorations, to fulfill my creative whims. I am so grateful for this abundant gift of time, &I have filled over 30 canvases in the past month. while I wait for the paint to dry in the evenings I have been beadweaving. it’s a very meditative process of stringing & weaving together very tiny beads, with my endless collection of live grateful dead shows playing in the background. I get carried away for hours on end & have made too many for myself so I decided to post some of the woven fringe seed bead earrings I made to my online store. visit my store & support me in my craft! all purchases from my online store help me buy more supplies to continue my art practice

rye sourdough bread recipe

Since everyone is baking right now, I am posting this here for my sisters & all others who have asked for my bread recipe. I made this recipe up when I couldn’t find one that I liked & it has worked very well for me, & hopefully it will for others who like a very dense seedy rye loaf bread. It’s best to cut it very thick with a serrated knife. Preparing the dough is extremely easy once you get a feel for growing the culture. Super good with avocado, eggs, greens, cheese, mushrooms & garlic, honey & butter. In my mind I call it ” beeb bread” since my family calls me “Beebs” 🙂

spring update // wild times

Springtime transition this year was all about slowing down to integrate past, present and future before taking steps on a new path. After spending some sweet time with family, I went on a nostalgic road trip through hundreds of miles of california to wild places both very familiar and unknown.
