Blue Calico and My To Do List

I've set a few goals for myself lately, because I seem to be so busy...I find myself standing, wondering what to do next.  Do you ever do that?  I can be so scattered.  So it came to me...make a list for each day, which  MUST include exercise, and I HAVE to do everything on that list.  It's working pretty well! 

Here's my new little colorful cat.  I love the combination of dioxazine purple, light blue violet and gold ochre...throw in Mars yellow, quinacridone burnt orange and a touch or burnt sienna, finish off with golden's iridescent bright gold (which I absolutely love).  One of my favorites.  I LOVE color!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!

Edible Flowers For Kitty

I opened the door the other day, at the espresso shop, to find Kitty having an afternoon snack.  She seemed a little miffed that I interrupted her, but forgave me after I gave her a backrub.  I have to admit, the pansies do look yummy!

Hi!  I'm still around...Just very, very busy.  Business at the Espresso Shop has picked up a lot, so more of my time is spent there.  I signed up for a couple of art classes, to learn new techniques, and they are amazing.  I love Jane's 'prints on wood' class,  and I am very taken with 'Suzi Blu's Piety and Passion' class.  Great new techniques that I can't wait to start.  A lot of new supplies, for me, so I've been having quite a time finding everything, but I think I'm set now.  I  don't want to know how much I'll be worth it.

I  have a new little FOX painting to share.  He's now in my ETSY shop.

Have a great evening!

Happy Easter!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, loving Easter!  We're going to my Sister-In-Law's, so I won't be cooking.  Well, I am making a couple of salads, which I love to do.  The grandchildren are excited, and coloring their eggs today.  I wish I could join them, but it's off to the shop for me!

Before I go...I have a new abstract kitty painting to share.  I thought of bees the entire time I was painting him, so his name is, "Bee Cat".
