In Process

Well, this past week was so incredibly busy. I’m fortunate to have so much work coming my way. Luckily, I was able to get enough done during the week that those obligations did not spill over into the weekend (too much.)

And what a beautiful weekend it was here in Seattle. Days like the last few we have seen make those 300 other days a year it’s cloudy/rainy bearable. It lifts the spirits to say the least. (Sidebar: I actually have no idea how many days it’s really overcast or rainy here, but it FEELS like 300, at least!)

I did manage to squeeze in an hour or so for a journal page…well, the start of a journal page, anyway. I have been wanting to do something with a dark background so that I could use my fun new white out pen. This is in no way, shape, or form, finished, but I thought I would share what I have. Not sure where to go from here, so I might just let it sit as is for a while until inspiration strikes again.

To make this I played with: painters tape, acrylic, pencil, and white out pen.

Also, a big thank you to all who “liked” and/or commented on my last post about the definition of an artist. That was a scary post and journal page to share for some reason, so your support meant a lot. For now I’m going to try not to worry too much about labels and just let things be what they are. It feels important to be on this journey, and that, right now, is enough.

And, for fun, here are a few photos of a weekend hike we took in Discovery Park. Seattle has so many amazing waterfront parks. Discovery is one we frequent. It has a nice mix of woods and beaches to explore, and on clear days, some incredible views of Mount Rainier, seen in the first photo below.



  1. Ooooo pretty journal page.

  2. I live in Colorado and we have 300 days (or more) of sunshine a year. When we have rainy days, we savor them as you do your sun! On the down side, we are pretty land-locked…
