Hi everyone.  Hope you weren't looking for me.
I've not had much to say around here for a while now
 and I don't even really know if people still read blogs.
Since I finally have a new smart phone (what?!?), 
I'm finding it easier to simply post photos to my new

You will find paintings and sketches as usual, but
also lots of work-in-progress art,  around the house and pet photos.

You may even see a rare photo of me and my guys. :)

(but not now) :)

Anyway, I hope  to see you on Instagram
while I try to figure out what I want to do next.
I'm thinking that I am way past due for a real life website.
We'll see.
And I am still on Facebook, Pinterest, and Etsy, of course.

Well, I somehow managed to get myself locked out of
my Facebook account for the next 16 hours or so.

 But I did have a new painting I wanted to share.
So I'm share it here…
…on my poor little forgotten blog.

Because snow. :)

Find it here!

Happy December, everyone.

Every Life Matters

Did you know that if you buy any $10 print in my shop
that has a dog or cat in it
I will sen $4 to

It's true. 
 I will.
Bernie is working tirelessly every day to save as many
lives as she can and I am happy to help her efforts in the best way I know… through my art.

Check back often!

First Santa of the season!

The original is sold, but the print is in my shop now.

He goes good with a lot of my older paintings.
Still plan on making a little boy to go with the girl holding the santa.
 Now that I've added the print set below, 
I can say all of these are available in the

Cards, cards, cards!

I have finally been adding some new cards to my much neglected
Zazzle shop.
It really is one of my favorite things to do.

Feeling the Fall

First fall-inspired painting of the year!

I'm really enjoying this weather.
Warm in the day, but not so hot that you can't sleep at night.

Just makes you want to paint pumpkins and colorful leaves
and maybe a few pretty witches.

Stay tuned for more of that! :)

In the mean time, why not visit my Halloween gallery over
on Zazzle?

Handle with Care

We only get one planet.
All the creatures we share it with are counting on us.

(Here is "Handle with Care" from start to finish.)

Try Something New Today!

6 x 6" flat canvas panel
I like the little bits of confetti that are raining down on her fun.

Small but sweet!
Here she sits upon my new little wood chips I've created
to keep track of all my different blues.

Here she sits on my dining room mantle.
I should try something new today and give that a good dusting. :)

I've been painting a little white dog

Original was just listed in my Etsy shop and as of now is still available.
Sorry, sold.

"One Curious Dog"
I painted and sold this one yesterday.
(I may do a second one for myself with a skinnier neck and real legs.)

And you may remember "One Good Dog"
from earlier this year.
I did some playing around with the image and added some products to my 

Next up I'm going to try to work all three images into a fabric design.
I lack skills in that area.  I'll let you know what happens. :)
