New Paintings!!!

I have two new paintings that I finally got around to this weekend. The first one is called "Heating Pad". It's inspired by how kitties can become our own personal heating pads, but not always when one is needed ^_^. The second one is called "Madame Butterfly". This painting has a new take on the original depiction of Madame Butterfly. I decided to use some autumn colors since it will be that time year soon enough. These paintings will be on Ebay tonight. Hope everyone has a wonderful week (but the weekend can't get here soon enough ^_^) .

What You've missed...

Back to School Tea Party!Above are photos of the "Back-to-School" tea party I had. It was just for my mom, my sister, and me. I have been reading a book series called "The Luxe" and they are always having tea parties so I decided to have one of my own. I made some tea cookies, cream cheese pinwheels and other snacks...and then I picked a spot in the garden and set up a table. It was really fun ^_^. I will definitely have another one soon.

I have not updated my blog in while because I have been busy with classes starting up and commissioned paintings. I am attending Maryville University in St. Louis, MO. I transferred there from Jefferson College, a junior college...so it is my first year at MU. I have two years at MU before I graduate. I am majoring in Graphic Design, so all my classes are geared toward that since I got my General Education classes our of the way in the first two years. I am excited about that part ^_^. The part that is kind of a drag is the 40 minute drive four days a week.

Below are the two commissioned pieces (both16x20) I worked on for the "Siamese Lady". She wanted one to display for each main holiday. She has a blue-point siamese named Sydney and a lilac-point siamese named Siba.
Well that's all I really have for now. Hopefully I can gets some new paintings done this weekend to be listed on Ebay.

Two New Paintings with a Summer Feel

These paintings are inspired by the dwindling, summer season. The lovely gardens are past their prime and the birds are getting all their singing out in these final, joyous weeks. The first painting is called "The Garden Whisperer", an 8x10. The second painting is called "A Song in Her Heart", an 4x6. These summer paintings will be up on Ebay tonight.

Back From Our Destin Vacation

It was so nice to go to Destin, Florida again. We haven't been there in a long time. The beach was beautiful and the waters were so clear. We had lots of fun going to the Harbor Walk Village, gift shops, and out to eat. A little sad that it's over...we were all looking forward to it for a long time. But I am glad to be back home to see my kitty...he missed me so much. He just couldn't get enough pettings when we got home. So needy. ^_^ Now I need to start painting and thinking about school starting up soon. This summer went by so fast!
