Polka Dot Peek a Boo, also CALENDARS!

Polka Dot Peek a Boo  Oil on wood, 6" x 8," $255.
My 2018 calendar is now available. I told interested parties I wasn't doing one this year...  (because I is old and grumpy not to mention still setting up house, lol) Then a dear hard working friend kickstarted the dang thing by designing it (among other things.)  Thank you, Suzi Little!

Like last year, $2 from each will be donated to the Cleveland APL, the shelter from which I glean so much inspiration. They make great gifts, something to consider for the holidays... Here's a link.

Buy now for Peek a Boo kitty below.

Oh the joy that is new paint brushes... Today was a good day to paint Terence the Tabby.  (Side note:  If you are clicking here from my  Fall 2017 newsletter, please accept my apology, I listed both the wrong size and price for this painting.)

Stormwatcher, also a chipmunk

Stormwatcher Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  $330.
A bit of excitement recently: I heard a mysterious rattling in the basement. I went downstairs to investigate. It was a chipmunk! Caught in a live trap my husband had set! I texted a picture of the unbelievably small and frantic animal to him at work. (I'm glad he called me right away because I was kinda frantic too!)  Anyway, he instructed me to walk it into the backyard and release it. Watching the chipmunk scamper away willy-nilly was a treat. He made no haste disappearing into a pile of moss covered logs. We had left a basement window open for a brief time-- hoping it was just the one that got in the house...

Blue by You, Lark & Key Gallery

Blue by You  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  $330.
I like this painting...  the saturated oranges and general contrastiness of kitty on left compliment the softer peach hues of the other.
A quick thanks to Lark & Key Gallery and Boutique in Charlotte, NC.  I sent them four paintings for their holiday exhibit, "Ornamental" and three sold within days of the opening.
Sold! Lark & Key Gallery, Charlotte, NC
(Happy dance!) Must find a few more paintings to send them before the show closes, December 30th.

I See Daisies and Skulls and Skeletons Reception

"I See Daisies" Available at Lakeland Community College Gallery (email me if interested.)

The reception for the Skulls and Skeletons exhibit at Lakeland Community College last week was fun, tons of gruesomely great art, sculpture and jewelry and most attendees in costume.  My sister made a surprise visit with her entire family (in costume!)  
Nephews and friend.
This after pointedly telling me she wasn't sure if she'd make it! Too fun. 

The exhibit runs through November 2nd. If you are local to NE Ohio, it is a worthwhile look-see. As of now, my (two) skull paintings are still available. Should you have an interest in either, purchase at the gallery or email me!

I had to schlep this painting outside and use a photo tent to get a decent shot...still a bit of glare on it!  It's better in life.
