Hello

Hello!  I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post!  Life is very busy, too busy!!!  I've really missed reading blogs and posting.  I've, actually, tried to read a bit and post, but I've been so tired...things just don't come out right, so I go to bed.  I've been running the Espresso shop by myself, so that's pretty much all I've been up to.  I have been able to paint a bit at the shop, and finished this little guy, that I named Sherman, after a crazy cat that I owned 30 years ago.  He was fun to work on.  I painted him on wood, using acrylics, watercolor pencils and I used my new favorite stamp on the background and around the edge.  I'm, also, working on a commission, which I will share after I give the owner the first peek.  

Well, I guess I had better get to bed, so I can get back to making Lattes!  :-) My favorite is a coconut latte, at the moment....It's so good!   I will be back....  

I hope everyone has been well and having a great time!

Welcome back to blog land! It's so nice to read your post. I love Sherman. There's something whimsical about him.

Really-a month--wow!! Glad to see you back--I kind of envy you though--with the coffee shop. Lattes are my favorite.
Your art is so cool too. Sherman would fit right in at a coffee house. Do you display your art there?

Ooh, I so love coconut lattes...and coconut Italian sodas too! (I haven't seen an Italian soda since I moved back to IL from WA!) I love this cat painting, Deb. I keep seeing this as a clock! LOL I think it is the circular shape. Anyway, it is beautiful as a painting and makes me miss your old cat for you!

Sherman the cat... this is great!

Nice geometry.

It is the way of it... one thing at a time.

The only one at the coffee shop..!!!

Some times, it is really good to take a break, nice that you could do so.
