Surfing fun on Guam with the kids

Summer surfing on Guam…definitely not peak season, but great for kids! I still enjoy surfing every once in awhile, but I am also happy to chill on the beach and watch others enjoy the water. I’ve been having fun trying to get some good footage of my son, my little surf grom. He’s had fun …

Blue Sun Studio Critiques my Site + The Creativepreneur

I was recently featured on Blue Sun Studio, Inc. for a website critique by Deb Dorchak and Wendi Kelly, two amazing web designers (and authors to boot).

Creative Spotlight: Flower Emerging: Painting in Progress Outdoors

Since I haven’t ordered any large stretched canvas lately, I went to Ross to pick up some big print pieces on clearance to paint over. The canvas is not as high quality as the ones I usually order, but I use thick layers of acrylic paint, so it reinforces the whole piece anyway. It was …

Talofofo Bay Family Beach Day

Creative Learning & Exploring: Hiking Talofofo Caves

Earlier this week we spontaneously decided to finally check out the Talofofo caves. I hadn’t been there since I was a kid, and my boys recently expressed an interest in going up there. It was awesome! I forgot just how many caves there are, and what a cool adventure it is to explore. We will …

100 Latte Stones in 1 Year: Am I Crazy?

The last painting I did was of 3 latte stones I painted over an old piece.

I used silver and gold to paint 3 latte stones over the bubblegum jungle. My personal symbolism for …
