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!
