Alice and Her White Cat

I didn't have a plan for this painting, it just sort of happened. When I finished it... I just kept thinking about Alice In Wonderland and the White Rabbit. In this case, a White Cat, just like my Rudy. It's now listed on eBay.

Evie and Holly

Evie is finished, and I've decided to hang her in our dining room. My thoughts, while painting her, were of Renoir's girls and his sense of color. I love the impressionistic style!

I, also, finished "Holly". She may be my Christmas Card this year... There's an odd little butterfly with Holly...

Coffee Shop/Art Studio

Well... I finally decided to turn our storage/office space at the Espresso shop into an Art Studio of sorts. It's still a little bare, but I have a lot of ideas going around in my head...so it should look more like a studio soon. We've been trying to sell the Espresso shop for 4 years now...with no luck... I think having both of my businesses in one location will be easier. So here is what I see all day, while painting between customers! Coffee Shop Kitty is still with me at the shop. She's so happy there...it's working out well with her. And, here is a picture of my new painting in progress, I'll post the finished painting tomorrow.

Driving to town yesterday was like moving through a gorgeous impressionistic painting. The trees are so beautiful. Just took my breath away. Here are a couple of pictures, I hope to take more before the leaves fall...

Something different


I found these great little papier mache boxes and decided to give them a try. I love them! I like the texture that shows through the paint, and it was fun lining the inside. I've been wanting to do more mixed media, so this is a beginning!

Most of the time I drink black, house coffee at the shop. Today I happened to find a rather unique mug that I've had for years, but forgot about...so I just had to have a cappuccino. I added whipped cream, and sprinkled raw sugar on top...it was so good!

Back To Butterflies

I am enthusiastically painting butterflies again! "Butterfly Friends" Is now listed on eBay.

Guardian Angel....for cats

A favorite subject of mine...Guardian Angels...this one is protecting a sleepy kitty. Speaking of sleepy!!! I think my two jobs are catching up with me... It's time for bed...when I have trouble putting words together! Have a great evening!

Happy Tuesday!

I should be cleaning house or doing laundry before I head to the coffee shop...but I want to share my two new kitty paintings with you. I have a purple kitty wearing orange glasses, and a sleeping kitty with a heart on her chest. In 'real life'... I just love seeing all of the unique patterns in our pets' fur, like our Cleo had a gray tabby circle surrounded by white on her side...so pretty.....

Have a Happy Tuesday!!!
