My day begins outside on the balcony with a cup of “Yin Power”, a special tonic of wild harvested herbs.

My day begins outside on the balcony with a cup of “Yin Power”, a special tonic of wild harvested herbs. More often than not, I have a conversation with the humming-birds because they are actually rather social. One of my morning rituals is to be grateful. There is always something to reflect on with gratitude and that perspective lays the foundation for a good day. The kids wake up and start school. I pull on my striped overalls layered in a patina of past paintings and walk downstairs to work in an old storefront. I live in a small building that was built by artists in 1907 as their studio. The second floor is our living space and the first floor is the studio which is split into two rooms: The dirty room and the clean room.

My studio windows allow me to look out of the storefront space but no one can see in. I love the idea of seeing the world walk by yet I am invisibly making my work behind the screened windows. I light a candle for my father by his photos on the mantle and tell him I miss him. I gaze into the garden for a moment and take a deep breath. Ready set go! A must for me in the studio is really loud music! This makes me feel alive and eager to see what becomes of the work that day. I usually work as long as my body is able. If all goes well I try to walk the dog by the beach at sunset, eat dinner with my family and hopefully wind down with a documentary. Then repeat… usually 7 days a week. Blessed.
