Dora’s Dinosaur Rescue

Dora’s Dinosaur Rescue for Sketchbook Project

I decided to try to have a little fun with a still life today. I’m trying to read “The Artist’s Way” right now, because, aside from the sketchbook thing, I’m feeling a little creatively blocked. I don’t really know which direction to take my art, now that the show season is over, and I’ve done this big, serious, exhausting commission. I feel like I tend to take myself and my art a little too seriously anyways. I probably just need to marinate for a while, but I still feel driven to paint, I just don’t know what or how…At any rate, the Artist’s Way talks about nourishing your Inner Child…so I brought out the toys:) And since the theme for this sketchbook is Girls and Boys, I grabbed some girl toys and some boy toys. This tense standoff is what ensued, lol!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...

  1. Looks very creative to me! I think creativity suffers when art becomes work. I try to vary what I do, media, projects etc just to keep the spark going and not to get bored with myself.
