Watercolor String Painting

This one kind of looks like a woman, perhaps the Virgin Mary. I should sell it on ebay for big bucks!

Some New Stuff

I'm posting a few new studies for Fiber and Fabric Exploration. I'm not sure how successful they are. The light paint I'm using is a bit finicky, but still, and interesting technique.

Elizabeth Bennet

I've been reading Northanger Abbey again. Whenever I'm feeling glum, I read Northanger Abbey.

It's Just Wednesday

For the lucky few who actually have a sweetheart, its' Valentine's Day. For everyone else, it's just Wednesday. Having said that, I do want to spread some V-Day love! With my secret ninja moves from the government, I have created this Photoshop Masterpiece. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Dad!!!

It's my Dad's birthday today! In honor of this event, I am posting a brand spankin' new watercolor featuring Grim the Cat. Grim is my Dad's favorite cat (o.k., he's my Dad's only cat). Grim is the wild child of the family. He does pretty much whatever he wants. Even the dog is leery of him. Grim loves to curl up in my Dad's black office chair and snooze for hours on end! After a nice long nap he saunters into the bathroom, hops up to the rim of the bathtub, and meows until someone turns the faucet on so he can get a drink. What a strange cat!

Gilbert out of the woods!

Gilbert is doing much better. His fin is unraveling. However, a little bit of the fin looks like it might fall off. This fish cracks me up. Every since I learned to keep his water warmer he has somehow gained a new, improved personality. Of course this might have something to do with the fact that fish are cold blooded, I think. He greets me whenever I walk near his tank and does what I can only describe as his fish dance. Yes, he wiggles his fins and swims around in circles. In fish language he is saying, "feed me, feed me, feed me". Then he sticks his gills out in a gesture that could be roughly translated as “I challenge you, pathetic human, to a duel”. Why is it that every single animal that my family has ever taken in ends up being incredibly strange, demented even? Maybe my family is demented and it's rubbing off on the animals. The border collie is the most demented of all, but let us not forget the ferocious puma masquerading as our barn cat, and the horse, who thinks she would rather be in the house than out in the barn.

Oh well, at least life is never boring.

Generic Cheerios

I love Honey Nut Cheerios. However, they are very expensive. I buy the Kroger brand instead, in a huge bag. I save so much money, and I can eat as many generic Cheerios as I want without feeling guilty.

I must say though, the real Cheerios do taste better.

Speaking of food, I only have one Grandma Cookie left! They were so delicious. Now I am saddened by that lonely cookie, sitting in saran wrap, waiting patiently to be eaten.
