I Wish I Were

Right now I am sooo enamored of 2 artists work. Can I be them, Please?
Kelly Rae Roberts and DJ pettitt. I have been kicking out pieces like
crazy. I really am trying to do my own thing with them and not simply
sit down and copy their work. Kelly Rae said she is moving to Portland Or
in a few months and I'm jelouse. I want to move to the Pacific Northwest
so bad.
I am lucky to live in a beautiful area so I am not ungrateful. I just long
for cool cloudy weather. Here in Central Ca it is so hot. Hot and dry.
The fire danger is very real. Just had one about an hour away that
was a major fire. So far the Lord is keeping us safe.
Today I drove down to Fresno and went to Joanns.
Surprise ! They were having a major sale on canvases .
50% off so I stocked up.
Well I'm going out to the studio to paint.
Have a good rest of your Sunday.

The Muse Is Back

I have been having the hardest time with a creative slump.
Then I was looking through some Cloth Paper Scissor magazines
and found some art work from Kelly Rae Roberts. Sorry I don't
know how to link yet. Check out her work at
Now, I'm not really a copy catter but I wanted to do something different.
I have never drawn people before so this is my rendition of her stuff.
I did a couple of them and now I am working on a canvas . I really love
doing the back grounds. Take a peek. I'm off to post more pics.

I Love My Cat!!

I just have to post about how much I love my cat.
Samantha is not your normal cat. She has expressions that make
you feel like she understands everything you say and she knows how
you feel. I have never had a more comforting cat than her. She is almost
human. One of these days I should do a post of all her funny antics. Oh she
has gotton herself into some messes.
One time I kept hearing these thumping noises all day long but I was busy and
didn't pay too much attention to them. That night I couldn't ignore them any more.
Samantha had to perch herself on the bathroom window sill and leap up on a 8' tall
cabinet and jump down behind it. She had no way out. My husband had to saw a hole
in the cabinet and pull her out. To this day she will not let me go to the bathroom by my
self. She thinks I will get stuck behind the cabinet. Too funny!
I hope all of you pet lovers have a great rest of the weekend.
