Lost November

 Down the Rabbit Hole

Corgis at Christmastime

It has been awhile since I've tended to this space!  I am having a strange time trying to figure out what people read anymore... with all the social media and everything.  Does anyone read blogs anymore?!  Is facebook a thing of the past??  I'm confused and have been for some time as I bump around gathering information of my own choosing online.  It's all over the place :)   Still, I like to share my work here and all the other stuff that goes with it.

I'm getting ready for some Christmas art shows and enjoying the holiday season already...I've added my twitter link at the top right... wanting to post more about my work and hoping to reach more people.  You are the first to know!!  Please check it out and follow along if you are in the mood!
Happy almost December!

For the Birds

There's a bird in my birdbath several times a day.  It's a great way to get to watch birds from inside the house.  There are 2 of them who come and hang out... and of course, bathe.  This one is waiting for the other to come back with food.  Even though they seem to look full grown, one is the hunter and one is the eater.  A great relationship happening in our own back yard!!! 

Hoping to post more often and share more art here.  It's always nice to get comments, etc.  Happy July.

Going Backwards

Just looking through old paintings, old art... seeing where I've been.  Where I'm going...  It's fun to revisit. 
On another note... I'm in the embryonic stages of opening an Amazon Marketplace store.  Stay tuned and Happy Spring!!!

Spring is Coming...

It's been a long time since I posted here!  There are so many things going on this time of year with the kid's plays, projects and recitals.  I have many of these things looming as well.  With all that being fun and exciting, it does tend to make the days go by so fast.  I'm ready to get back to the garden... clean up the pine needles and mess from the wind storm in Nov.  (broken fence and monolithic pine tree stumps and vertical shrub roots in the rubble of our back yard)
Ready to watch the daffodils shoot up, enjoy more green and get that bike tuned up so I can get out there and ride:)  How's your spring coming?

Ringing In....

When I see this photograph, I can't help but hear all those clocks buzzing, dinging, burping and chiming.  You know, the beginning of Time by Pink Floyd.

Feeling good in the new year... can't believe it's 2016!!  I love fresh starts and clean slates and this year more than most I'm sensing new, planned, positive things coming on.  Happy New Year!!!  Leave a comment anytime, it's always great to hear from you.
