Etsy Shop Now Open!!


Hello everyone!! I am excited to announce that my new Etsy shop, Patch Of Sky, is now OPEN! I hope you'll stop by and check it out. I'll be posting new items on a regular basis so, please, come back again and again and again!

My latest obsessions have been coffee cups, skyscapes, and the odd beauties that I unexpectedly stumble upon in my daily experiences of the world. These days, I'm feeling like I could paint forever.

I chose the name "Patch Of Sky" for my etsy because a couple of years ago, during a particularly difficult time in my life, I started looking towards the sky for healing and inspiration. I would always try to memorize its details--but, of course, it was impossible. The sky is an ever-changing thing. Perhaps this is part of its beauty. The sky contains space. It contains breath. It contains peace. Looking upward is a habit that stuck with me. To me, painting is another form of sky-gazing--and it causes me to fall in love with this world of color over and over and over. Color is endless.

I hope you enjoy what you see and that
you'll stop by to visit often! :)

Lots of love,

love the Bucks cups. ;) All that picture needs is an old-fashioned and that would my favorite part of the day.

So you like the sky...When were you born again?

OMG! That is so cool. Dude, I think I am the only person on the planet to not have an Etsy shop.

However, when I reflect, this is probably a good thing because if I did it would be full of things like drawings of stick figures and this dog I learned how to draw in jr. high completely out of circles and maybe a paper clip bracelet if I'm feeling super creative and crafty.

Yah. I'm much better off just browsing through your store...

I LOVE your shoppe!

i bought the prettiest mug and
it reminds me of breakfast
in small cozy diners with the smell
of eggs and bacon with rye toast
and marmalade -

it reminds me of the morning paper
and love and the link of humanity
- the beaming smiles of
waitresses - and
