A Very Nice Day

Yes, today was a wonderful day!  My son and I had lunch with my sister in Bellingham, and then took a nice long (but cold) walk through the downtown - visiting various different shops and galleries.  James found a great place where he can rent space for a studio, and the gallery director was the sweetest lady.  I do hope he gets to set up shop there - it was very Jim-like (aka very cool, very artsy).  We had a great talk as we drove there and back.  He is such a wonderful and kind person, and funny and talented - I am one proud Mom.  And Elisabeth was accepted to WWU yesterday, and received her acceptance letter in the mail.  I know that girl is going to go far.  Yes, I am so very proud of my two wonderful adults =)

This is a piece I just worked on and completed. 
Title:  Absinthe Robette
To create this I used Itkupilli's kits in Mischief Circus. This one is a bit different from most of the ones I do - I think I was a bit more creative here.
Digital Collage

Hope everyone is gearing up for a fantastic weekend! <3 p="">

Some of My Newest Art

Hello!  I am back again after a long hiatus.  But I do have some new artwork to share with you, and some life-related updates as well.

My family and I are living in Washington state right now, and everyday it surprises me with its incredible beauty.  I have also been working with #Itkupilli's #MischiefCircus kits, been creating some very fun pieces with them.  I'll attach some so you can see the variety of wonderful artistic styles you can create with these.  And this is just a very small handful of the different styles Mischief Circus offers!  Itkupilli and her Design Team have a huge varied supply of wonderful digital pieces to use in your artwork (as you can tell, I am a total fan =)

Here are some recent ones I've created:

I will add a few more shortly ... I have been so immersed in creating these since I bought my first kit.  So you can definitely expect more to come.

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of JoAnna Pierotti.  She fought a long, difficult battle against breast cancer for several years, but lost her fight earlier this week.  JoAnna was an incredibly talented artist, always friendly, and honest, and someone I wished I could meet in person.  Unfortunately that was not to happen.  Please say a prayer, and send healing and positive thoughts, to her loved ones and her husband, Ron - their grief at this time has got to be immense.

Tomorrow my kids and I (who are much older now - not kids anymore =) Lisa, 24, and James, 22, will be meeting with my sister Dianne for lunch in Bellingham.  Of course it is supposed to rain LOL  It should be a good time, though - I will take pictures to share with you, and will post a few more digital collages as well. 

Much love, Peggi

A New Year and a New Blog!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to say Happy New Year and let you know that I have started up a new blog. You can find it at:  Artful Living in the San Juan Islands 

I've recently relocated to Eastsound, Washington on Orcas Island and wanted to create a blog, basically documenting my time spent here - photographs, art, food, d├ęcor, daily living and inspirational issues are some of the topics you can read about.

Also, if you are an artist, decorator, foodie, photographer, etc. and would like to be featured just send me an email to

I will still be posting my artwork here too, so I think this will be a very busy year.  Hope that everyone is well and happy, and doing lots of wonderful creative things.  Much love, Peggi

A New Leaf ... and a New Blog

Hi there everyone!

Well, I have decided to turn over a new leaf in my art, and also to start up a new blog.  The title of it is Artful Living in San Francisco, and it will include some new and exciting photo altering techniques - along with the images themselves (before and after), as well as simple tutorials that you can do yourself.  These techniques will not require an expensive digital camera (although you can certainly use one), but can also be applied to photos you take with your iPad or iPhone.

I am getting things in gear, have come across some wonderful vintage images, and taken some new ones.  I am hoping the blog will be up and running early next week.  See you there!

Colorful Abstracts for the New Year

Here are a couple of abstracts I worked on today.  As you will notice, they are very similar - yet different.  Which one do you like better?  Hope everyone is starting the New Year off right - I always love the new year.  It always feels like you have a new slate, and you can fill it however you want.  I hope you all experience great things in the year ahead. xo
