If we lived inside a snow globe: blizzard '11 photo diary


The St. Louis metropolitan area has experienced some of the most talked about weather since the blizzard in 1982. But I'm reminded that one of the funniest memories of this winter snowstorm inevitably comes from seeing me Carrie Bradshaw-gallivant in vintage fur and pajama pants through sleet and snow trying to capture every whimsical moment. In fact, the quote of the night was, "Kinda looks like we're vacationing in Narnia." And it really did.
Watching the steady snowfall seemed to play homage to every Norman Rockwell painting I'd ever seen and the entire thing was starting to feel as if I lived inside a snow globe. It wasn't long until Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and subsequently activated the Missouri National Guard in preparation of this severe weather. While we were fortunate enough to bypass the remarkable 22" snow approximates, we did, however, see towering snowdrifts, several inches of layered ice, and wind gust so commanding that I'll end up driving to The Home Depot to buy a new mailbox... since mine is now lounging in the frozen driveway.

I love these, girlfriend!! These second shot is awesome. Everything's awesome. Love the Winkle and Chloeation Nation pictures, and of course the boyfriend-related pictures. And I'm a big fan of the third-from-the-end B&W. Wish we could cuddle up right now!

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
