Experimenting with Clip Studio Paint

combination of fabric and digital art bird in birch trees

Today Meg spent a chunk of the day creating brushes for her computer program, Clip Studio Paint. After hours of making tiny marks and prepping them for use, she came up with a little blanket stitch.

She put some lines together and made me a birch tree grove to run about in, how cool is that?

Hiya Friends,

Bud here.

I wanted to give you a heads up that I’m doing an in depth interview for our newsletter with the one and only Meg this week. I intend to get her to Spill It!

It should be a saucy piece…

While I have you here… did you see this video?  Hands down, my favorite thing on the entire website!  It’s on the home page too.


art gallery painted portraits funny birds
Bud here.  I was thinking today how much I miss my friend Flora.  She’s been off to the coffee shop gallery for 2 weeks already. I’ve attached a picture from when we went to the portrait gallery last year.  Right now I’m on the east coast enjoying some down time with Meg’s family. Did I say down time? its not exactly a lazy day on the river here, we are having a blast.  I met some loons today on a boat ride (I’m not naming names, you know who you are) and we saw some swimming underwater. Those birds have the moves!  They are super speedy underwater swimmers and they can seriously hold their breaths!  Looking forward to more adventures with this bunch of loons this week. Maybe next time we visit Flora can come too.

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July!  We went out for dessert at a floating restaurant in Hope, Idaho. Seems like a fitting town to visit on a day that was the result of Hope.

Salted Caramel & Chocolate Tarte, in case you were wondering. yum!

Have a happy fun (and safe) 4th!


June 2nd is everybody’s birthday

This is a birthday hat. not a piece of pizza with chicken pox. Cut me some slack here, I’m drawing with my feet.


June 2nd is everybody’s birthday.

actually, it’s not mine, but I’m still willing to accept gifts!  I’m nice like that. Meg has no less than 4 immediate family members – a brother, a niece, a nephew and a cousins daughter – who have birthdays today! Sheesh, you’d think they could be a little more original. Happy Birthday Everyone!  Love you!




Hi,  Don’t tell Meg I figured out how to post on her blog… let’s see what I can do with this..
