New art

Happy Thursday to you all!
Thanks for the well wishes on my woodburning burn :)
It looks like I have a strawberry mark on my leg now. I wonder if it will leave a mark permanently?
I had fun today painting this Frida painting while chatting with my old high school friend on the internet. We set up our web cameras and both were painting at the same time. I would show her the progress as I painted and we would critique each other as we went along. It was cool!

I did manage to get out and shoot some video yesterday for my new video. I'm getting there. Soon. Hang on :)

Hugs to all!
FRIDA with Brids can be found up for grabs on ebay.

New prints update!

Hello beautiful people!
It's Wednesday humpity hump day. I am trying to get myself motivated to get out and shoot some video for a new art video I have twirling around in my mind. It is a sunny day, so I better get out while the going is good.
My leg is still red where I dropped the wood burning tool, but it doesn't hurt so that is good :)
My arm hurts where I got the Tetnus shot though. I was thinking ahead and told the nurse to put it in my left arm and not my right so that I could still paint :)

I have 2 brand spanking new prints in my etsy shop

Hope you are all having a super day!
I will talk to you soon!

Bikinis and wood burning don't mix!

Oh, First I want to thank all of you for giving me so much pigeon love! Hug a pigeon today :)
All the credit goes to the amazing people who work at the Humane Society. They are the real heros!

Now, about bikinis and wood burning tools. Doesn't sound good does it?

I was laying out in the sun for a little is FINALLY nice weather. I don't advocate laying out in the sun, I do it very rarely.

Anyways, I thought I'd do some wood burning while I was out there (I don't like the smoke it produces, so I do it outside.).
And just as I feared would happen, the blazing hot tool slipped and hit my bare leg! It didn't bleed or anything but it is a red welt.
It has been about 18 years since my last Tetnus shot, I figured I better go get one. So I did.

Moral of the story, keep your pants on when working with wood burning tools. LOL!

Bicycle weather

Ah yes, bicycle weather! Isn't this advertisement great? I love this bicycle. I had one a lot like that one that I got at the Goodwill in 1997. I called it the "red rocket". An old vintage red bike with one speed and you had to back peddle to break. It was great. I thought leaving it locked up outside wouldn't be a problem. Wrong. It got stolen in 2001. I haven't had a bike since. I've been thinking about getting a new one.

So here is another painting dealing with my obsession with the bike I used to ride. It is called "Back from the Vet" and it is up for grabs on ebay.

OH! Also, I will be having a little etsy shop update tomorrow.

Hugs to all!

sweet treats

Hello beautiful people!
Ahhh the air conditioning is on! I am dancing in glee!
I hope the weather has gotten better where you are. I know that lots of places have been having some wild weather. There was a BIG thunder storm last night!

I have two new paintings up for auction on ebay. One is called "The Kerchief girl and cat" (Lily and my Blythe doll inspired that one).
As well as "Angel Food Cake". I could go for some cake right now! WOO HOO!

Rainbow wishes

Is it possible for an apartment to get to be a million degrees? It must be, because I swear that is how hot it is in here right now.
I forgot all about the heat for a moment when I looked outside and saw this beautiful rainbow! It was so magical! I wanted to run and see if there was a pot of gold at the bottom of it.

Send cooling vibes my way.

I finally got my dollie :)

I've been wanting this Blythe doll for ages, and I don't know if it is the heat or what, but I finally went out and got her :)
Isn't she cute in her little outfit? She is the one that looks most like me. I love wearing sweaters and kerchiefs too (of course not during a heat wave...) I love her! I had the original Blythe doll in the 70's, I hope I can take better care of this one. No more homemade hair-cuts, I promise ;)

Me & Kitty

Hello beautiful people! How is the weather in your neck of the woods? I am bracing myself for this heat wave they keep talking about on the news. The air conditioning won't be on for another week or two, so this should be interesting LOL!
I have a new painting called "Me & Kitty. Opie must be hiding :)

Talk to you all soon!
Keep cool!
Me & Kitty is up for grabs on ebay.

I have flowers on the brain. I need to get some geraniums and fast! I hope they aren't all gone. I noticed that at the grocery store they didn't have many left. Sometimes I wait too long to get planting and then it's too late. We had such funny weather lately with frost warnings in May that people put off getting their plants. I will try and get some this weekend. (P.S. It is supposed to be a scorcher!) All of a sudden we are supposed to get blasting hot weather.
So until I get the real flowers I will just have to make paintings of them :)
Geraniums and black cat is up for grabs on ebay.

Off to the vet we go!

We took Opie to the vet yesterday for his annual check up and Rabies vaccine. They gave him another vaccine too, I forget which one it was. He had two shots, one on each of his tiny butt cheeks. The vet says he is in PURRfect health! YAY for Opie!
Inspired by his trip, I did Off to the Vet. A more magical experience than in a car with a cat carrier on my lap :)

Off to the Vet is up for auction grabs on Ebay.
