My Bio

Hello to those who are art and create art, and welcome to my page. My name is Sarah and I'm one of those quirky artists. I don't paint as much as I'd like to, as life is busy, but I try to submit "something" once in a great while.

I absolutely love watercolor painting, but mean to pick up oil painting. You won't catch me ever working with charcoal or pastels - it's messy and just not for me. I've been known to do digital art in the past, but I mostly dabble with traditional media as it's tangible and relaxes me. There's something about mixing paint and gliding a brush across paper or a canvas...

Anyway, thanks for stopping by - while you're here, grab and glass of wine and say hey.

Hey there! How's everyone doing!? With Covid, everything on fire and more, how ya hanging in there!? Well, things got pretty serious in the Portland area metro for a while with wildfires and the smoke. It was... pretty bad. Fortunately, we got through it all with three air purifiers. Now, covid is having a resurgence in the area. The end has no end. I haven't been posting much because, for one, there's just an effing lot going on and two, I'm not really drawing anything these days even though I do have some finished art to post. I've just been really busy making a ton of soap and I'm still crocheting a blanket. I gotta say, though, I miss painting. I was in Hood River yesterday and stumbled into an art shop with so many watercolor brushes and paints... it reminded me how much I really miss watercolor. But, with that said, I'm going to be taking an extended break from DA while I work on this blanket. I will posts pics when it's done, but it might take me a year to finish this. No

Hope everyone's staying well and healthy during these turbulent times. There's a lot going on and there's a lot which needs our kindness, our voice, and our strength in numbers. It's also important to remember to mask-up and protect yourself as well as others during this pandemic. I'm doing well - went on a hike yesterday and spend some time at Timberline Lodge. Just being near Mt. Hood brings me so much joy. And that's important - it's so important to self care during these times. Today, I'm going through a lot of old clothes and going to be donating a bunch of stuff. Also, I have to share: I beat Breath of the Wild this week. Literally, tears were streaming down my face and I just was frozen as I watched the end scenes and credits. Truly, this game is probably the greatest game I've ever played and is probably my second favorite video game of all time. I need to dedicate an entire post just writing a love letter to this game. It's just incredible. Now that I finished the game, I'm

Hello there. <3 Hope everyone is staying safe and well during these times. It's been awhile since my last post, and I've been really busy with life and adulting in general. As far as some news from my end, I ended up resigning from my once-a-month wine steward position because I couldn't work a supplemental winery job any longer, in addition to my full time job, even though I loved it. I still have those connections and wine is a passion, so I'm so thankful for the awesome experience and the knowledge gained. On my last day, I learned a friend and colleague who was out on medical leave due to receiving chemotherapy treatments, had died sud
