Society6 shop

Over the summer I started fiddling around with Photoshop more and used Society 6 as a motivator. I’ve created a little shop page that you can get to by going to the URL www.society6.com/claudettelambertpeterson. I’m indulging my need to see my natural history images on pillows in black and white. I’ve ordered some and have […]

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day seems to have turned into Valentine’s Week in this house. Since last weekend, my kids have had school events that require bringing in candy and baked goods. I love an excuse to buy (and eat) candy and to make and decorate (and eat) cookies. Even more so, I’ve always enjoyed food as a […]

You’d think that the cold and darkness would draw us into ourselves;  the perfect backdrop to reflect and create, but there’s so much other stuff that needs tending to. Too much time cooped up inside with family, too much time being cold, but when I do get outside, it’s […]

As I write this I’m awaiting the arrival of Grace Lin’s The Seven Chinese Sisters.  (Grace Lin is coming to the Eric Carle […]

Dolls

I’m starting to think about a children’s book story again.  I’ve been working on an idea that is probably really several stories.  I felt like I hit a wall so I put it aside.  It’s been a series of images in sketch books and in my head for several years now.  There are many ideas […]

Sending it Off

I have finished and sent off some portraits that I’ve been working on for a long time and it seems I’ve become emotionally attached. This is something that I’m aware of with almost all of my artwork, but especially with conceptual pieces. Maybe because they take some time to develop in my mind and then […]

First Post Ever

I’m so excited to have a blog!  I’ve always considered having one, but I find it a little intimidating.  So much space.  Putting it out there for everyone to see, or no one to see maybe, depending on whether or not anyone besides me will read it.  Here’s what I’m working on lately. A portrait […]

This segment began with Craig bragging about his new Mets fedora hat (Pictured) Steven Matz jersey, Which eventually led to Boomer BFF coming to grips with the fact that he has a fat face attached to the surface of his head and will probably never be a mogul. Recco then picked up the pieces and delivered his latest informative and enjoyment sports update Madison Bumgarner jersey, beginning with Noah Syndergaard Citi Field debut, Which was a beneficial one and concluded with a score of 5 1. The Amazin will encouraged the Cardinals to town Monday night for a four game series with Matt Harvey on the hill Steve Largent Jersey. The Yanks were not as fortuitous Donta Hightower Jersey, falling out 6 0 to the Royals. The Bombers have now lost five of their last six as they head to new york for a two game set with Bryce Harper and the Nationals Brock Holt Jersey. and as well Jake Arrieta Jersey, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller uses a no hitter to the limit, The Rockets come all the way up back from a 3 1 series deficit to beat the Clippers in Game 7 and mention of Jim Nantz and Rory McIlroy leads to laughter up in the Allstate Studio Derrick Coleman Jersey.
