Hi! Happy Friday!!!
I am really excited about the matte Legion Entrada Rag 290 paper that I discovered. It's been at the printers, I just never tried it, but I am so happy that I finally did! It looks like watercolor paper and is archival, as well as their ink, to 150 years! So, I have printed my "Fox" using this paper, and I'm very happy with the results. I, also, had a glossy "Fox" 8" X 8" print made, and will be adding it to my Etsy shop by tomorrow.
Well, I'm off the the Espresso shop, and then to a dance concert, which our youngest is dancing in, tonight. It's a good Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I find the little magnetic calendars very useful, so I decided to have a few printed with a couple of my paintings on them. I especially like the way the Fox turned out, so thought I would share it.
I finally found a paper for my prints that I really love! It looks and feels like watercolor paper, and I'm very excited about it. So I will be offering some new prints on this paper very soon.
I hope everyone had a great Monday! I did! :-)
Good night...early morning and long day tomorrow...I'm off to bed.
I'm still looking at "Rose", so I don't think she's finished, yet...but she's close. I keep thinking that I need to add a cat or dog! LOL! Speaking of dog...I promised GusGus a walk, so I had better get going.
I'm thinking Foxes today...there's a painting going around in my head. I have always loved foxes and have been inspired by them lately. I will post my new Fox magnetic calendar in my Etsy shop later. I'm, also, waiting for several Foxy items from my Cafepress shop to arrive. I will let you know how they turned out.
Have a GREAT Monday!

We have SUNSHINE!!! I had to snap a couple of pictures of GusGus and Rudy enjoying the sun on our deck today. I, also, have a picture of my new Angel in progress. I hope to finish her tomorrow. Today I am cleaning house, and it feels like Spring cleaning with all of the doors and windows open...Love this weather!
I hope everyone else is having a great weekend, too!

I stayed home today and caught up on a few things... like updating my Cafepress shop, finishing my latest Valentine's Day painting, (Made into Valentine's Day cards) and GusGus and I went for a long walk in the forest...the best part of the day! He loves going for walks! Me too... :-)
Have a great rest of your week!

When our girls were young we spent many weekends/weeks camping at the Oregon Coast with family and friends. About 10 years ago we sold the camp trailer and started renting beach homes. I thought that I would share a bit of our trip from last weekend with you. The pictures show one of our favorite restaurants at Nye Beach, which is becoming THE place to live and shop. It's such a charming little community. I've, also, taken a few pictures of one of the homes, we have rented many times, which overlooks the Ocean. Hmmmm... I think I've just decided that this is the year I will spend one or two weekends painting at the beach. It's so inspiring and relaxing.
I'm painting all day today!!! I hope you have an amazing day too!!! ;-)

A friend noticed my 'Colorful Cat' Print, in my Etsy shop, at the same time I was wondering what I should paint next. I am so happy that she inspired me...because I am having a great time painting these very colorful kitty cats!
Well....it's time to head out to the Espresso Shop! See everyone in a few hours! ;-)

My family is waiting on me...to watch Modern Family... but I had to share my two new paintings first. Two paintings inspired by several things that I love... Valentine's Day, my cat Rudy, abstract art, hearts and just Cats in general.
Have a great evening!
