Two new POODLE paintings

Poodle Paintings SOLD

I've been inspired by Poodles, lately...and I have two new poodle paintings. The poodles just happen to be black and white...and I love black and white! I did add a green butterfly to the ACEO painting...but while working on the two poodle just felt like it should stay totally black and here they are.

Have a good night...

The Espresso Shop Kitty

The hot weather in Oregon this year has been wonderful for growing flowers. I wish I'd known how great it was going to be and I would have planted more! Well, I finally remembered to take a few pictures of the Espresso Shop with the flowers, and the Espresso Shop Kitty. I showed pictures of Rudy...the white kitty that came to the shop and went home with me. Well, now we have Kitty at the shop. (The word is out, I guess) She was afraid of us, at first, but after finding out that we would feed her, she's now our friend. I hope to find a good home for her before the weather changes, but if I don't... she'll, most likely, go home with me, too. Eight IS my favorite number. My GusGus won't be happy though.

Have a great weekend!!!

A Quick Hello...

Paintings SOLD


I promised to make chocolate chip meringues and zucchini lasagna before I go to town, but I wanted to stop and say hello...and share my new little mini poodle painting. It's only 2 inches square, and it was so much fun to paint! Do I keep saying that? I just love to paint, so it's always FUN!!!

If I can get some interesting pictures of the meringues...I'll post those later. Guess I should get them baked first. Meringues have been one of my favorite desserts for as long as I can remember. I haven't made them in years, though, so we shall see how they look for pictures.

Jane has a new doll making class

I love Jane's table leg dolls, and I'm so excited because she's teaching a class on how they are made! I just signed up, and here is the link to the site if anyone else is interested.



Yea! It's Friday!!! I'm looking forward to getting my hair cut, going to lunch with a friend and, hopefully, painting the rest of the day! Our daughter is working at the espresso shop, so Mom is going to have some fun!

I just finished a new, large, butterfly painting. I'm calling it, "Five Butterflies". It's 6" X 12", so much bigger than my recent 2" and 3" paintings. It was fun to paint, and I hope you enjoy it. Rudy and butterflies are still inspiring me, but..... I saw five of the most adorable little poodles at the groomers I'm feeling more poodle paintings coming! They must have been a poodle family...all groomed and beautiful...looking through the kennel door for their person to come and rescue them.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Still Painting Butterflies!

I'm still having fun painting Butterflies! Here are two more butterfly paintings...a Westie and a Frida Cat. I hope they bring a smile or two... Now I'm off to bed, because tomorrow I get to paint ALL DAY LONG!!! Except for some cooking, laundry and playing with the fur family. I can't wait! Have a great rest of your weekend! Deb
