  1. Thanks Isabella! Lately I’ve had a pretty short attention span, so my buttons paintings take maybe 3 or 4 hours at most and my drawings are between 15 and 30 minutes. I hope to finish 6 buttons paintings – as I have 2 more of these canvases on my shelf – and slowly work up to longer, more finished drawings.


    1. I really love that quote too – makes me wonder what we could accomplish if we could see our lives as adventures more of the time than as dramas. Thanks for the comment!
