Hoeptner Happenings Newsletter and BYE for now!

Quick post today:  My Hoeptner Happenings newsletter went out this week.  if you missed it, here's a link.  I forgot to put a banner across the top, doh?!  Kindly ignore that part, lol.

Finally, I must bid you a fond farewell for now.  Our home is 99% packed.  This weekend we move into a temporary digs until the new house becomes available. I'll be back on the other side.

White Witch

White Witch  Oil on panel, 6" x 6,"  $195.
It's a lot of packing going on here. Still. I'm worried about Coco. That little gray animal doesn't like change, though I've been reading up on how to make the transition easier for him...  If you have a tip/experience on moving with a cat, I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

Alison and moving is tedious business

Alison  Oil on panel, 6" x 6,"  SOLD
"Alison" will grow into her outrageous whiskers...  A bit of glare on photo here, it's better in life.
The Captive

In other news, "The Captive" kitty model has a profile on the Cleveland APL website, great cat!!  Here's a link if you reside in Cleveland and would consider adopting.

Husband and I continue to pack for the move. We've been in this house for ten years and stuff accumulated.  Who knew we owned five camera tripods?!  Only two of which include release plates -the parts that connect the camera to the tripod? Though, a couple of those turned up and I will attempt to match all before boxing! **sigh**

I painted Angelina Jolie's patio!

Angelina Jolie purchased the Cecil B. DeMille estate recently...and it occurred to me, "hey, I know that place!"  Back in the 80's when I lived in LA a friend asked me to help him paint murals on the patio of the estate. At the time, the home was being prepared for a designer showcase. (Each room was to be decked out by a different designer.) Parking was dreadful and security tight! But friend and I managed to paint lovely art nouveau designs in assigned areas...  I had hoped to see the inside of the home, but was denied entrance. True story, lol. :)
