I enjoy painting still lives partly because I LOVE TO PAINT, but also because I enjoy looking staring at all things in nature. Leaves, flowers (all flowers), birds, insects and even clouds.

So, when I come desk, I find flowers (some of which I have planted), leaves that are changing colors, insects that lived their last day (they have to have lived their last day before they are allowed to collect them as my specimen (or props for still lifes), and more recently feathers.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
