Illustration Friday: EXCESS

Have you ever had a dog do this? This is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme of "excess".

This silly doggie got into the dog treats when his mama and daddy went out to go shopping. He's stuffed! Will he finish the rest of the bag before they get home?

Thanks for the award Susan!

The darling Susan from SWEET IMAGINATIONS sent me an award today! Yippee!!! It's the "you make me smile" award. Now I will pass this award on to two bloggers who put a smile on my face.

They are Suze over at pinkcrayonstudio and Mz. Suzi Blu! at suziblu.

Keep on smilin'!

Skating Blissfully

Do you remember when you were young and being blissful was put into everything you did?
My newest painting is a celebration of youth. I have some footage of myself and a friend skating when we were 8 years old.
I have made a new video showing this footage along with the process of my newest painting. I remember that day. Skating and falling down and laughing. You want to know something? I never remember feeling cold.

"Skating Blissfully" is at auction right now HERE.

I would also like to mention that the lovely headband I am wearing was made by RAIMBOW TREE on etsy! She is such a sweet creative girl!

I've been tagged, 5 random facts about me...

The sweet Mika has tagged me :)
She has asked me to tell you 5 random facts about it goes!

1. I love to sing, even though I am tone deaf.

2. I'm an "only child" and both my parents are "only children" (I don't have any first cousins or aunts or uncles...very small family).

3. I was on a Canadian dance TV show for 6 months in 1990 called "The Electric Circus". I wasn't a very good dancer....I just wanted to be on TV :)

4. I had my tonsils removed when I was 3.

5. I do most of my painting late at night.

Now I am going to tag cheri

Omega 3 capsules

I take my vitamins do you? Well, I only take Vitamin B Complex, Calcium and Magnesium, Vitamin D and Vitamin C. I also *sometimes* take my Omega 3 capsules. I was just watching a show on t.v. and an Animal Dotor said it was okay to give pets Omega Capsules once in a while. Sooooooo I pierced a capsule open and put some of it on my finger and tried getting Opie and Lily to lick it off. They weren't interested. They got a little on their mouths, and now they can't stop cleaning their faces! I don't blame them! This stuff smells like fish! STINKY!

Illustration Friday: SUPERSTITION


My entry is the old superstition of a black cat crossing your path. It is supposed to be bad luck.
BUT I THINK it is GOOD luck because cats are so wonderful and I could never see them as being bad luck.

*SUPERSTITION* is available at auction on ebay

Winter is coming...

Today it snowed. Not a lot...but enough to let you know that winter is coming.

At the start of every summer, I buy flowers and plant them in flower boxes out on my balcony. As fall arrives, I feel bad about letting the flowers die. I would bring them inside if I could, but the cats would eat them and get I have to leave the flowers out there all winter. It upsets me. Do flowers have feellings? I really hope not.

This new painting is about winter coming and bringing in the flowers....something I wish I could do.

The painting "WINTER IS COMING" is up for auction on ebay

Want to learn how to make a MINI hardcover journal?

I think I bit off more than I can chew with this video! It was hard to fit everything in! It is 10 minutes long, but you get the whole "from start to finish" instructions on how to make you own little hard cover book. You can then turn it into a little wee journal! SO CUTE!
If you have any questions, please feel free to post them. I know I may have skimmed over somethings that may need more detail.

P.S. I swear I don't sound this nerdy in my day to day least I HOPE I don't!

Crow in the window

My newest painting incorporates tonal shading as well as very flat color. I like the way the flat color gives the painting more of a silk screen or perhaps, comic book feel.

Available at auction on ebay.
