Sometimes the flow of creativity slows down. I haven't created much lately, but I think that is passing. It's becoming winter, in spite of the 70 degree weather. Yesterday we spend time at Sweeties' Mom's yard, helping her get her Winter Wonder Land up. Even the reindeer were sweating.
My job has come to an end, I still think that I need to get up tomorrow morning, and go to work, but I don't!
Of course I need to find some other job, but I am taking a few days off. We have been working on getting the house cleaned up, and that feels really good.
Thank you all for visiting, bear with me. I'll have something fun to look at soon.

I have been doodeling with the paint program on the computer just for fun, oh joy! A new way of doing art! If you see just a grey rectangle, try clicking on it, it may open to the real picture.

Create your own snow flake!

A little bit of splendor

What I see out of my living room window....

Altered Art Boots

This wonderful sculptural piece was created by my canine friend, Fiona. Note the artful use of open spaces, and uneven surface texture. Randomly placed bite marks create interest and excitement, and the separated pieces convey a longing to belong to the main structure.
Fiona excels in her chosen art of chewed objects, and the art world eagerly awaits her next piece.

Nature Deco pages

Two water color doodles for a Nature Deco. The small journal originated in Milan, Italy, and goes on to New Zealand from here.

Belated Boo!

I know it's after Halloween, but here is Fiona in her witch outfit. It took three treaters to get her to sit even remotely still for a picture. Little does she know she is in training for a set of reindeer antlers for Christmas. And I swore not to put my dog in clothes, ever.

fall collage

Fall is my favorite season. I love the brilliant colors of the turning leaves, I can never get enough of the flaming trees. It is especially beautiful here in the South, I fill my pockets with fallen leaves, and use them in my art work. This collage goes to Justtra in North Carolina.
We have two pine trees in our yard, and they shed and shed! I rake and rake, and they just keep shedding! I would just let them be, because I like the copper red blanket they create, but it's a tidy neighbourhood, and that's alright too. I pile them around the tree trunks, and lately a little doggy has made his bed in there every night. Burrows down in them, and stays warm. We are trying to get close to him, but he doesn't trust us yet. So I keep piling the pine needles up for a nice burrow for him.
