Le Papier

Last year I received this writing paper for a gift and I loved it then but it is more special now that I have been to Paris. I have been very fortunate to have spent two weeks in France recently. The Eiffel Tower really is beautiful and looking much bigger than I imagined! Anyway, I love this paper and box for the design and charm and memory making qualities. Someday I'll open it and write a note to someone, somewhere .....who might be inspired to visit France as I was!

T-shirt Bird

I'm wondering if I should add more birds to this t-shirt that I did as a demonstration for a student.
Fun with stencils!

The Tide!! Looking Nice!

Yesterday I rode our new rail service, The Tide, to my studio from the border of my city, where it starts, to downtown Norfolk. I wanted to see how long it would take me to get to my studio. It was twice as long - 45 minutes! It takes 15-20 minutes to drive to the train's parking area. Then 20 more minutes to ride the train. So, timewise it doesn't work well for me! :-(  My city is debating whether it wants to expand it because they aren't sure how well it will do. Of course, the cost! The train is certainly a novelty around here! It's a good start but clearly, it needs to be expanded. Anyway, it was a good ride from a different perspective!
