Rainy Days

It has been raining almost daily here in Toronto. This summer is a little less than par. It feels more like Fall. I snapped this photo below when the rain had stopped and the sun had started to come out, yet the black clouds hadn't left yet:

Have I told you about my magic umbrella? If I take it with me to the post office, it doesn't rain. If I forget it at home, it pours. That umbrella of mine has such magical powers I tell you!

My newest painting shows Frida caught out in the rain. She is prepared for the rain with her pretty umbrella.

Frida with Umbrella is currently up for grabs on ebay.

SNEAK PEEK pen and ink art

This is a sneak peek of some of the pen and ink art I've been working on. Above is mini canvas painting with acrylic and ink. See how they look like little framed paintings inside the canvases? I had fun drawing the fine lines on them! Little squiggles and details that I'm not used to getting with a brush.

This is a Moleskine brand journal. I drew and painted on the cover. It's original, not a print! YAY! I'll make more of these soon and have the up in my etsy shop tomorrow.

Have a great Saturday!

New Items!

Brand new items hot off the presses!

Okay, this first one is not "off the presses", it is an original. The mermaid show! I used a lot of different collage papers, plus I tried something different.....pen and ink on top! I was afraid that the varnish would make it smear, but since it was waterproof ink it was fine. I think I will do more paintings with ink drawings on top.
"The Mermaid Show" is up for grabs on ebay.

I've also added some NEW prints to my etsy shop.

Last but not least:

CAT SHOES! I am having fun creating art on these ked shoes over at Zazzle!
For the ultimate siamese cat lover (ahem, I believe that would be ME!) Siamese kitten shoes!

Okay off to dance the salsa!

I love the Samba Elégua!

Here in Toronto there is a group of musicians called the Samba Elégua. They often makes trips downtown in the summer to play their beats on the street. Whenever I hear those drums I go running out to see them like a kid when they hear the ice cream truck.
I just love that they dance down the street and make music! It is so much fun! It brings such a smile to my face. Today I heard them off in the distance, so I grabbed my video camera to show you what it is like.

Eat your greens

Every Sunday I go grocery shopping with Morgan. I remember hearing that you should only buy food from the outter perimeter of the grocery store. Everything in the middle is over processed, chemical, JUNK. So I *try* to stick to the outter perimeter. You know, fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, whole grains. Today I got sprouts! Spouts are an amazing SUPER FOOD! To find out more about sprouts and where I get mine from click here.
Today I made a sunflower sprout salad.
I start with olive oil in the bowl I will be eating out of. Then I squirt a bit of lemon juice and mix them together. I add a bit of salt and fresh ground peppercorn pepper. I then cut up some tomato and cucumber and add the sprouts and mix it all together. EASY and YUMMY! Oh and good for you too!

I like to wash it all down with a greens+ drink. Greens+ is a powder with lots of awesome ingredients in it. My favorite magical ingredient is spirulina. I feel such an energy BOOST when I drink it. I simply mix the greens+ powder with orange juice. Yes, once blended it is green, but that's okay! It is so GOOD!

Okay, now I'm off to eat a donut! LOL!!!! Come on, I can't be healthy ALL THE TIME!
