The past few days have gone from unusually Warm and lovely to a little ice. Thankful that this winter has been without snow. The outlook for the next 2 weeks shows more mild temps-and I am thrilled. Went out Friday night to Dinosaur for a belated Birthday dinner. Wings and Shrimp and Beer! So good. Jason and Lisa gave me 2 bottles of aged Port. WOW they are both equally good but wowie-strong! The rest of the weekend has been slow and easy. Perfect for this time of the year. (I will take photos of the bottles later and post) In other news I spent time drawing out my tattoo cats. Its not as easy as it seems. You know, just draw out your tattoo. But you have to consider a lot. Placing a 2 dimensional drawing onto a 3 dimensional object that is constantly moving and changing is hard. Which is why I am getting these drawing off to a start and then handing them over to my tattoo artist so she can take them and turn it into something that makes sense. She understands this process very well and so its better to hand it off. The appointment... Continue reading

The other day after cleaning my studio, I went looking for something on the top shelf of my bookcase. As I was moving things around, a little book fell to the floor. I bent down and picked it up and opened it. In the past few years, I have gone on a hunt for good vintage children's books. This was one of many that I have bought. I haven't really looked at it since I bought it. I am not sure I even really ever opened it to look at it but yesterday when I took some time I realized that I had this book when I was very young. THESE Illustrations! The memories... I remember the pearls in the kitties ears. I remember the colors and the sweet faces of these cats. What an amazing simple moment for me. To find this. Heck, to have it FALL off a shelf at a time when I needed to see this. Time is everything. Putting yourself in the right place is everything. This little book has filled my imagination with ideas for a future painting. A painting I NEED to paint. This simple perfect story. Its what I know. Paint what... Continue reading

The past few days have been spent cleaning the painting studio room. So much stuff crammed in there since the kitchen redo. It felt good to open up the floor. Its been cold. A little snow. Nothing too much. We have been lucky this season so far. Later this week its back up to the 50's. I am GOOD with that. In the meantime I have been making hearty stuff. Made this yesterday but never got a chance to eat it. So I will reheat it today and make some baked fingerling potatoes and biscuits. Today I am hoping to get the old computer table put together and put upstairs again to hold all the printers, desktop, etc. Easy lazy Sunday. Continue reading

Ugh! One thing leads to another... always! I started to clean my painting studio today. When I moved out the yellow chair to the outside studio it opened a lot of room. With that extra floorspace I realized I would consolidate my white bookcases. They can stack one on top of each other but I only have three. So I went upstairs to the closet that I never open to see if there was another one. When I open the doors I realize very quickly that there was not another one. In its place was enormous amount of stuff. Things that we have put away forgotten about for many many years. I just don't think we've opened that door but maybe once or twice a year. I'm just not sure why we gave up on that space. It's odd strange space of course, hard for anybody to stand up-right. And it has a very strange sloped ceiling. Nothing really could fit in there. However I think now with the fact that the kittens live upstairs that it would make a great kitten space. I could put their litter boxes in there and it would be lovely. I suppose now is...

I spent the afternoon on Saturday in old Ellicott City. I found some lovely little things. An odd cat planter, a pink elephant planter, small pink glass bowls and a pink glass cup and saucer. I know... pink seems to be a theme. (I want ALL of these dresses) There was a gas leak it seems in the antique store. I didn't know until the fire department was coming in. It makes sense-after the flood down there, things are a total mess. I then came home and took a well needed nap. I later woke up and put together some food to eat and watched the ball drop. Shortly after he turned on a movie The Conjuring. It wasn't bad. It kept me up watching until 3:00am. Maybe that is why I slept until 9am. Got back up and made coffee. Fed the cats. Checked emails and took a shower. I started a crockpot of sausage and herbs for savory muffins. They are always good. I tend to make them a little different each time. Mostly it is sausage, herbs, muffin mix, I added buttermilk that I had on hand. I also added chopped onions and cheese. Around 4pm I... Continue reading
