The Visitors

The Visitors

 I miss my cat. She succumbed to old age after 19 years. I have had many pets; cats, birds, fish, and yes, even turtles. They have added so much joy to my life. This is sort of a tribute to the many pets I have had over the years. 
 E N J O Y!

Feeling a Little Squirrelly - S is for Squirrel

S is for Squirrel

Yes, winter makes me feel a little squirrelly. I want to hibernate. 
But alas, it was in my notes from my last show to illustrate another letter S. I know snake seems to be the obvious, by the sly squirrel won. Besides he is picking strawberries and that should bring a smile to one's face.

Chasing Away the January Blues

Reflection of a Promise

Cleveland winters are known to be filled with gray skies and snow. Today is no different. However, it is great down time to start on a few more illustrations. 

Here is my latest, where the picture tells the story. 

Only 69 more days till Spring!

Flowers for the Winter Solstice

Flowers From My Garden
FLOWERS IN TEAPOT

This was done based on several sketches I did at the Cleveland Fine Art by the Hand this past November when the traffic got slow. Cleveland skies get quite overcast this time of year and I though illustrating a floral was a nice change of pace.

Spring's Promise

Spring's Promise
Okay, I know Christmas is in less than two weeks, but it has been unseasonably warm. Yesterday it felt like a warm day in March. If I didn't see the Christmas wreath on my door, I  would have thought time traveling was possible.  All this year, the weather has been a bit out of sorts. March was like February, April like March and so one. But these last two days, I have seen men sporting shorts, and I live in the Cleveland area! 

Anyway I had fun in illustrating it. 
Must be all this warm weather we've been having!

The Christmas Pointsettia

The Christmas Poinsettia
Yes, finally, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I have not posted here for a while. Missed November completely. I have been going through a few annoyances that have kept me away from creating, as well as kept me in the BLAH zone! Finally, as I am recovering from my second cataract surgery, it looks like I am getting out of the woods to see the lights of Christmas! 

So here with a little Christmas cheer I post here, 
I wish you all...
