Days of Gratitude


It was a weekend of gratitude. There was much baking and chopping, talking and walking in the midst of this delicious weekend, which heralds the beginning of the holiday season. And it's not over yet. I've still got two tubs of persimmon pulp in the frig just waiting to turn into fragrant loaves of bread.

As I follow the string of days, deeper into the darkness of winter, I imagine all the people I know, all of the people who support and encourage me in my art like many tiny flames, lighting the way.

I'm grateful to all of you who have taken the time to write to me about my work, and to those of who've come up to the studio and said, "keep going." I'm tickled and delighted when you come to open studios and exhibits and perhaps decide to take art home with you. And classes--well--I learn as much as you do. You all stretch me way beyond where I think I can go.

However and whenever you choose to mark this season, may it be filled with people you love, time to see or make art, and a good helping of inner wisdom for these times.


Look for my work in several venues this holiday season:

The Southern Gallery in Charleston, SC is hosting a show called 99 Problems, (But a Print Ain't One.) You can check out the entire show in their shop and I've linked to my work here

Closer to home, The Sparrow Gallery will be hosting their holiday show beginning in early December and I will have several of my favorite botanical pieces there for you to visit.


Join Linda Clark Johnson, Leslie Colby, Allison Spreadborough and I at a collaborative pop-up holiday shop at Linda's home studio.

Sunday, December 18th from 1 pm - 5 pm.
2379 39th Street, Sacramento

There will be lots to choose from: prints (great sale prices!), a new selection of cards, and my coloring books too. Come join us for an afternoon of hot cider, and art.
