There is a strong bicycle community here in Toronto. The city is so congested that walking or cycling is the best way to get around. Today Morgan and I went for a little walk and all of a sudden I saw a giant Egyptian sculpture! (Click the photo to see it bigger)

Is that King Tut? Help me out on this one :) I guess I better go to the exhibition and find out!

Frida likes to ride her bike around town to go get flowers for her hair:

Cycling and walking are great ways to actually stop and see what is going on around you, plus, it is better for the environment :)

Frida on her bike is up for grabs on ebay.

Frida with Cactus

I really like my new Frida painting. She is setting out the cactus in the sunshine. The cat isn't thrilled with her choice of plants. Kitty prefers something easier to munch on.

I like it when I can make the character in the painting "do" something. It's like playing dolls. I get to have my own little make-believe world.

"Frida with Cactus" is up for grabs on ebay.

Warm Fall Colors

I always look forward to the Fall because of the beautiful colors that the trees turn to. I also love wearing warm fuzzy sweaters and corduroy.
My newest painting has a lot of oranges and reds in it. A sweet babushka getting the table ready with tulips. On the chair sits mr. meow-pants watching her every move. (I want a dress just like hers!)

"Cat on a red chair" is up for grabs on ebay.

Hugs to all!

Getting ready for Halloween

I know Halloween is more than a month away, but the way time seems to be flying lately I feel I better get a jump on things :)
Opie and Lily will have to figure out what they want to be for Halloween this year.

A lot has been going on here in Toronto lately. There is the Toronto International Film Festival. I keep meaning to go to yorkville where all the celebrities are, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. The celebs will only be here for 3 more days so I better get with it! Rob Lowe (my teenage celebrity crush) was in town and I missed him! Darn it! I would love to see him in person. Maybe tomorrow I will go check out that area. It's right where Whole Foods is, so I can get some good snacks while I'm "star gazing".

For now, my Halloween paintings are currently up for grabs on ebay. Spooky yet cutie :)

Frida Picking Flowers

I had this image in my mind of Frida picking flowers to put in her hair. This is the painting that came from that thought.
She is up for grabs on ebay.

Pet Lovers!

Hi everyone!
My two newest paintings show the love we have for our animal friends :)

First is a good ol' game of fetch. Does your dog do this? Jump up and down in excitement waiting for you to throw the ball? I remember all the dogs I grew up with doing this. Also, the famous game of tug! They have the ball, you try to get it out of their mouth to throw it again and they won't let go. A tug of war begins. You finally give up and say "fine we won't play anymore", and they suddenly drop it. You go to pick it up and they grab it again! LOL!

Plus, I have Frida taking time from her tea break to give her kitty a hug. Cats love to get up on the table to see what's going on don't they?

Both paintings are up for grabs on ebay.

Hugs to you!

Miss Babushka Dollie

Here she is! All dressed up in her dotted dress with her babushka kerchief on. Looks like she is waiting for a call.
All dressed up and no where to go. She will be staying with me for a while until I make some friends for her.
Stay tuned!
