Where has the month gone?


This month has definitely gotten away from me. Although I have been keeping up with reading my favorite blogs, I haven't been keeping up with my entries. This is due more to my resistance to learning about the codes and links rather than to not wanting to share. But I do realize that the more I write, the more comfortable I'll be.

The pictures above tell the story of what I have been doing lately. Taking care of new puppy Kona. Cute as can be, but quite a handful as puppies tend to be. One of his ears is standing up now. That's our other dog, Java, next to him...can't leave out a mention of him! I think he wants his peace back. We've been to the beach a couple of times. Note the pic of Leila as a sand mermaid. This is amazing because she is NEVER still unless she is sleeping, so for her to lay there long enough for us to do was a feat. I got some beautiful stargazers for Mother's Day. This was the flower in my wedding bouquet. Intoxicating smell and beauty! Love, love, love them. And I have been painting dog paintings for the greeting card line for http://www.dogspeakcards.com/ . I'll figure out how to link soon!

Now, I just have to do some paintings for The Doggie Door and start working on the book illustrations. Plus, I have a few birthday gifts to paint! I'll post as I complete them. I'm looking forward to some time in the studio where I can just experiment. But, for right now, I am happy to have some flow going with the business and realize that is what will further me on my path. I'd rather be painting anything at this point than transcribing. I am so burnt out on that. That is why I have committed this year to turning my ship around, to living the life I want to live, to creating art and making a living from it. I realize now that life is too short to do otherwise!

  5. I have a hard time with code too. Here's a little something I learned...google "hyperlink." It will bring you to wikencyclopedia (sp?) Then you can lift the code right off there.
    I'm still trying to figure out how to do a banner.

  6. I love reading about your painting. I think we are similar in how we work. Your April 22 post photo reminds me of me, I use that paint and looks like my piles and quirky things in my studio! I'd love to see your work other than the ones in the montage...those are really cool! thanks for stopping by my blog!
