A Girl and her Cat

This was originally a small sketch and now a full color cut paper piece.  Now that I see it up on my computer it looks a bit like a chalk board in the background.  Maybe, I'm thinking about back to school time!  I also used a little bit of sheet music for the background.  I always find music interesting to look at, even though I don't read music or play anything.
Anyway, this is small, maybe 5x7.  I think I'll frame it and add it to the stuff for my upcoming art show in October at Gallery Calapooia in Albany, Oregon.

Bike Ride

There is nothing like a relaxing bike ride.  Especially, if you are lucky enough to ride in a yellow basket with the wind in your ears! 
Just a little something I whipped out today.  I was experimenting with some old looking newsprint for the background.  I painted it and then glued it down.  I hope the lumps dry up and go away.  At any rate, it was fun to make.
Hope you enjoy it!

A Visitor in my Garden

Something new to show you.  A study of zinnias and a nice yellow cat that visits my yard sometimes.  He only visits our yard if Lois (my dog) is in the house.  I'm sure if he hung around for awhile Lois and he would make fine friends.  It is her fondest wish to have a cat friend. 
Anyway, this was done with paper I painted myself.  Which explains why it's so bright.  I tend to go for brighter colors.  It's just the way I roll.
Hope you enjoy!

Garden Friend

It's been awhile since my last post.  What can I say, I've been busy as can be.  Busy is good, keeps me out of trouble.
Here is something new.  If you look closely, you will see her garden friend.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
