Just when you think life can't get any busier!  It does!  It's been fun, but I am ready for a quiet, slow, creative moment.  Maybe tomorrow...  I am closing the coffee shop on Sundays and Mondays through the summer.  The plan is to paint on those days.  :-)  Painting with my granddaughter is in the plans, too!  She's amazing!

I did finish, "Oscar And Izzy", a commission that I have been working on.  Very sweet cats, and my first abstract-ish, commissioned, pet piece.  It was so much fun, and definitely a style I feel I need to explore more.  

On a different note...  Has anyone been in an airport lately?  Oh, My!  We took our daughter to an airport two hours away...(so we were up at 2 am)...and I didn't know that there were that many security guards in the world!  They scan each and every drivers license now, too.  It was very interesting, and felt...strange.  I think it would make a great surreal painting.   I may have to give Surrealism a try.

Happy Sunday!

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!
