An Artist Journey - The ups and downs of creation, and how to keep moving forward.

The Gratitude Button Game

I started a little game with my daughters that we call the gratitude button game. To be completely honest I am the one who needed this game the most. I had all of these handmade clay buttons from the button pots that I make. Many times I make a few extra, and I never had the heart to put them in the reclaimed clay, their was just something about them. So I would set them aside, not exactly knowing what I was going to do with them. My daughters love the buttons, so I glazed and fired a few of...

Dreams

I was recently at an art show where I meet two wonderful young ladies. These two young girls were admiring my work and told me how “cool” it was that I was an artist. I began to chitchat with them a bit.  They told me how they are in eighth grade and their teachers had recently been asking them what they wanted to do in the future, and for the rest of their lives for a career. My initial gut reaction was, that is a bit much for an eighth grader to think about. More so, this is something that...

 Sometimes you feel a calling, an urge, whatever you want it call it, to do something. Don’t be afraid to try it out, I encourage you to travel down that path.

It was something I had been brain storming about, and playing with...

This is something that has come up a lot lately in the things I have been hearing and reading, in different forms and in different wording, but the same concept. This is my take on it.  I don’t believe you can truly live in only one of these areas. Instead I see it as a sliding scale. You need to revisit the past to learn from past...

Button, Button, Who’s Got The Button?

I have very fond memories of playing a game that my grandmother called “Button, button, who’s got the button?” My sister and I would sit at the top of the stairs and my grandma would stand in front of us with one button in her hands. She would place her hands behind her back and say “Button, button, who’s got the button?” If you picked the correct hand you got to move down one step. With each new chance to pick the right hand, the magical phrase would be repeated. Whoever made it to the bottom of the stairs first,...
