Super duper excited, the boxes just arrived from the press, and they look fantastic! Grab a copy either directly from Airigami, or through Amazon.
A light-hearted gallery tour by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle
It’s never too early to teach art appreciation. This light and airy view of art is an ideal way to introduce kids to the works of the great masters. Eight famous paintings, re-imagined by Larry Moss, are presented in these pages, paired with rhymes containing a hint of art history.
This is Airigami’s first illustrated children’s book. The pages contain the images from Larry’s Masterworks series. This is a fun and affordable way to acquire a complete collection of artwork.
My site was hacked by some indiscriminate Ahmdosa hacker. He can suffer a thousand papercuts as far as I’m concerned. Thankfully the damage was minimal, but there’s going to be a ton of work for me that I really didn’t need over the next few days to get things back to normal. I has a sad. Feel free to leave me words of encouragement!
Today was First Friday, the monthly gallery hop here in Rochester, NY. We had our studio open to the public while we built a balloon birthday cake for the local Hope Lodge that’s celebrating their first anniversary tomorrow. I love getting to deliver giant cakes ;-)!
Make a wish!

If you follow me on any of the various social tools I frequent (twitter, instagram etc) you’ll know that I’m constantly singing the praises of my children. Yes. I know everyone’s kids are the best in the world- but man oh man, Chloe’s earned that badge tonight. I am completely SMITTEN over a present that she made for my dear friend Heather (aka @drfeather) who is expecting, so with Heather’s permission- I’m sharing it here.
- Your Baby Book (the baby is saying mama)
- Early labor? Oh wait- I can see the head!
- She’s here! (someone might want to catch that…)
- Aww Momma… I love the way her eyes changed to have a look of contentment on them.
- And now she’s breastfeeding! Look at how she’s drawn her cradling her baby!
Ok, maybe it’s me- but she drew this all on her own accord. I love the details, I love the expression she’s captured on their faces. Did I mention she’s 6 years old? She is already learning how to convey emotion and feeling and depth in her drawings. When she’s absorbed in her work everything else seems to just move more slowly around her. She’s in her own world, in the zone- the place where everything flows… I consider myself so incredibly lucky to get to watch her grow as an artist.
(hey flower if you get to read this some day, YOU ARE AWESOME!)
SO I keep complaining that I just want to make stuff and now I have the perfect opportunity with 30 DAYS OF CREATIVITY, which is “a social initiative encouraging people to create stuff (anything) every day for 30 days in June.”
ANYTHING. duh. While I don’t always have time to make the masterpieces I’d like, but I can (and typically do) make something. So now it just gives me an excuse to share it on my blog, and also on my new favorite source of inspiration: pinterest.com. #ZOMG if you haven’t tried it yet and have any sort of interest in crafty things or home dec or fashion or design- it is like a squirrel for someone with ADD. Without further ado…
I let the girls strip down the azalea bushes out front and we strung the flowers together to make flower leis. It was a refreshing change from the regular hustle and bustle of after school time, and reminded me that there IS time to make stuff.
Flower making a flower lei ;-)
