My mom's art

My mom is an AMAZING artist who painted the above painting of me in the pool a few years ago. She works in oil paint on very large canvases.
She has an art show on now that is a big success! YAY MOM!

Just thought I'd share one of her paintings with you all.

I've dog-gone gone and done it again! I painted another doggie :)
This time it is a little Corgi with a neckerchief on. Look at his happy little face.
He's up for grabs on ebay.

Today was a heat wave! A tropical heat wave! Luckily I have air conditioning, so me and the puss cats were nice and cool.

Kitten kisses!

2 Cat Frida

Hi Y'all!
Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on the shoes that I posted on on Friday. I was so excited to see that I could put my art on shoes! Something I hadn't thought of :)

I had a nice weekend. Morgan (my boyfriend of almost 10 years on the left), had his friend Lance of Vancouver come stay with him. It was nice to see him again and the weather was very pleasant. Lance flew home on Saturday night after staying the week so Morgan and I were back to business as usual on Sunday. We went down to the lakefront and walked along the boardwalk holding hands :)
Then it was off to do our Sunday grocery shopping. I got all kinds of healthy food, trying to stay on my health kick. I will have to show you some of my dishes. I am loving the warmer weather! FINALLY!

I have a new painting with Frida and 2 cats up for grabs on ebay. I think it is cute how the one kitty has it's back to us and is looking over his shoulder.

HUGS to all!

In honor of "Woofstock" I painted a doggie painting!
Woofstock is a yearly event here in toronto that is full of fun and activities for people and their dogs. They close Front St. down and there are vendors and activities. It is a lot of fun! Makes me wish I had a dog (Psssst, don't let Opie or Lily hear that!)
If you are in the Toronto area this weekend come check it out with your pup!

"Babushka and Boston Terriers" is up for grabs on Ebay.

New Note Cards

Thank you all so much for all your tasty ideas on recipes for the ground cumin! I think I will have to make some spicy chili with it! YAY! Three cheers for kidney beans! HIP HIP HORRAY!

I have added a new pack of Frida note cards to my etsy shop! I only made one pack, but I plan to make more.
Also, I should have more brooches added soon.

HUGS and chili kisses to all!

Cleaning the spice rack

Okay, I should find a condo to move into *someday* right? With that in mind, I keep trying to sort out all my worldly possessions and get rid of stuff I don't need anymore. When I *finally* move, I don't want it to be a big rigmarole of sorting out stuff. I want it to be an easy move.
Today I tackled the spice rack (a.k.a. the cupboard above my stove that is a "catch all of spices and aluminum foil"). Wow! Did you know that if a vanilla extract bottle with a loose cap spills at the back of the cupboard and is left to dry, it becomes super glue?
Yes, sir-ee! I was getting rid of old spices and scrubbing vanilla for a few hours. Does anyone know what recipe "ground cumin" would call for? I have a brand new bag of it, and I don't have a clue why I bought it! LOL!
So that was today's task. On to the next...
P.S. the painting above is one I did in 2005. You can see a lot of my past work at my flickr page.
Hugs to all!

kitty kisses

Happy Furday!

Lily is so funny! I love this picture I took today of the two of us. She had her head turned right around! I think giving her ear kisses tickle. It must drive her nuts that she can't laugh!

This is my newest painting "Queen and her White Cat". Lots of paper application and an antique wash. I love the expression on this kitty's face :)

I'm looking forward to a sunny weekend! Hugs to all!

Siamese kitty love

After all the talk about yesterday's post of me with my seal point Lily, I decided to paint a similar style painting :)
Lily got lots of hugs and kisses today. Opie likes to sleep in my arms at night and Lily stays back behind my knees as I sleep. In the daytime I like to give her a little extra attention because Opie gets so many kisses in the night.

Would you believe the weather got cold again? WOW! And it's JUNE! No wonder Opie is asking to get under the covers!

Hugs to all!
