Red Skies at Night

Today was a bit of a topsy tervy day weather wise. It started out nice and sunny and then a wild storm blew through. Thunder and lightning, with a lot of rain. But then, it stopped! As the sun set, I looked out my window and saw this pretty pink and blue sky.
The sailors say "Red sky at night, sailors delight!". I hope tomorrow is a nice day because I got too busy to get an ice cream cone this afternoon.

I took this picture of me and Lily today:
(Today was one of those "soft focus" kind of days.)

Lily is the nervous kitty of the two, but she is as sweet as pie! She likes to nuzzle into my hair, so it was hard to pull her away from my head long enough to take this picture. She's such a sweetie!

I hope tomorrow is warm and sunny and full of ice cream cones and kitty kisses!

Frida with a Bird and Butterflies

Cha Cha Cha!
My newest painting is just BURSTING with bright juicy colors!
Frida is reaching out to the birds and butterflies with open arms.
I have used a hot pink background on this one opposed to the usual turquoise color. Collage papers make up her skirt and butterflies as well as the banner and bird.
I hope everyone had a good week and is ready for the weekend. It has been a bit rainy here the last couple of days, but the weekend looks good. YAY! I hope it is "walk outdoors with an ice cream cone" weather on Saturday :)
Talk to y'all soon!

The weather has been so windy here lately. The kind of wind that blows your hair doo all over the place :)
As I was walking home from the post office with my hair standing straight up, I thought... "this would be perfect weather to fly a kite"!
Tonight I have listed "Kite Flying. It is up for grabs on ebay.

Hoping I don't blow away!

kitty and tea time

How was everyone's holiday?
I spent my weekend looking at condos. I hesitated again, and lost out again! :(
Who would guess that condos sell within one day of going on the market?
I like time to think about such a big purchase...I guess I'm one of the few who do.

I have a new little painting up for grabs on ebay. "Tuxedo Cat Portrait". It is MEOW-O-LICOOUS!
Talk to you all soon!

Summer is in the air!

Today was just like a beautiful summer day! It was warm and OH SO SUNNY! Perfect inspiration for the "Summer Fairy"!
I spent most of the day looking a condo. I just might put in another offer :P
How was the weather in your neck of the woods? I think I got a bit of a burn! Ahhh I love it! Not a cloud in the sky :)

Summer Fairy is up for grabs on ebay.

I have a couple of other goodies on ebay too! Come see :)
Hugs to all!

Hello beautiful people! This last weekend was Victoria Day weekend here in Canada. I spent my holiday cleaning and organizing art supplies.
The other day I saw a video on the news of a baby elephant that was just born. It was so sweet! He was trying to walk right away. Isn't that amazing? How some animals just get right up on their feet just as soon as they are born!
I couldn't find the video to show you, but I did find this video of an elephant painting a portrait of another elephant! Don't believe me? Check out the video. It is amazing!!!

My elephant painting is up for grabs on ebay.

Big Frida painting and new doll!

Little miss dollie is under the big sky~

Last night I made this little dollie. I thought she'd enjoy getting photographed with my landscape painting before I ship it off to it's new home. She has quite a stance on her! She's ready for anything!

Then I finished this large Frida painting, measuring 20x16 inches. She has beautiful soft tones. A black cat is always stylish :)

Both the doll and the painting will be listed on etsy later tonight.

The sun is shining and I'm off to the post office.

Urban Landscape

Hello beautiful people!
I'm still on my quest for the perfect condo in this concrete jungle :)
I think I had found it a couple of weeks ago, hesitated...and lost :(
I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

Tonight I think I will work on some new dolls.
Hugs to all!

Happy cinco de mayo!

How is everyone today? Did you watch American Idol tonight? It's getting right down to the wire!
In celebration of cinco de mayo, I have a very colorful Frida painting to show you.
I love the rough paint strokes on her top and her (bigger than I normally do) hands.
As always Modigliani was a big inspiration on this one.

Frida with black cat is up for grabs on ebay.
