Betty Krause-ish


I’ve been intently following an artist named Betty Krause. Her work is colorful, abstract, and filled with light and energy. Betty is very generous by sharing process videos and live paint-along sessions. The painting above is one I made last week in one of Betty’s paint-alongs. This is the first time I’ve been moderately successful making my work look Betty-ish. CRAP ALERT: Unfortunately, I’ve played with this first iteration, made it into a pot of flowers, and now it looks more crap-ish than Betty-ish. See Betty’s wonderful work on Facebook and Instagram by searching for Betty Krause Art.

A La Carde Studio Debut

BFF and I are debuting our new Etsy shop!!! Each one-of-a-kind card has original art on the front. We sell them in sets of five for $20. That’s only $4/card — cheaper than Hallmark and a hand-made keepsake to boot. They are blank inside for personal messages.
We’ve had such fun. Visit us at for a look. Please do some shopping too! Now’s a great time to send a card to a quarantined friend or relative to brighten their day. Here are a few of our offerings.
