Here's my "Unicorn Dreams" which I just posted on eBay, and I'm actually really happy with the way it turned out. Sometimes when I start a painting I have a general idea of where I'm going with it, but then the brush takes over and well ..you get the idea!
I also finished this little one, entitled "Clingy" can you see why?
Enough said, I probably will paint because I do have a few new creative ideas. I just found a ready source for my paints, Micheal's has finally started carrying Golden acrylics so I no longer have to order them and wait for them to arrive. If I run out, it's a 15 minute drive instead of waiting a week for them to arrive by mail.
I finally tried a few prints and they came out fairly well. I've never made prints before of any of my paintings, so this was new to me. If they seem to do well, I may invest in a better printer. I have several printers now including a laser, but for some reason (probably my great photographing skills) I never seem to get the colors exactly right.
I adopted a new Kitty and Limone finally has a sister (oh, yes, he's thrilled and doing somersaults), no seriously, he's adjusting very nicely, just acts like he's doing me a huge favor by being nice to her, all the while he has this pained expression on his face. I'll have to photograph the two of them and put them on my blog, maybe next week.
I've listed several new paintings on eBay and I'll probably list a few more tonight. It's really difficult with the poor lighting to get the photos just right (it's my story and I'm sticking with it)!
Here are a few I'm working on, feedback welcomed :)
This is the first in a series of nursery rhymes and fairy tales I'm currently painting. This one is called Little Miss Rabbet. I'm doing all my little characters as bunnies. I love bunnies, and when I'm not including a cat in my paintings, rabbits are the next best thing ..they're like a cat with long ears and a short fluffy tail ..ok, just got another "look" from Limone!
This one is called Little Red Bunbun Hood. I love the Little Red Riding Hood theme and I've painted quite a few paintings of this theme over the years but this is the first rabbit I've ever painted witha red hood and dress ..I sort of like the way she came out.
Well, this is my blogging for the day and probably week ..I decided I'm getting off my lazy behind and marching myself right upstairs to paint ..now!
Thanks all :)

I have painted some new paintings which I just posted last night on eBay and on top of this I finally decided to do a little Spring cleaning in anticipation in the area of my art work (don't mention house cleaning yet ...please). I listed a bunch of paintings with buy it now and best offer on eBay these are paintings that for some reason I still have. I'm running out of studio space so they must find new homes so I have the room to create more. My studio is on the third floor of my house and it's not very big, can be drafty but it does have some charm and the best thing about it, I can close the door and be by myself with just Limone and me.
Limone is my cat and my shadow and he thinks he's a budding artist. He loves to help (a little too much) and he's also handy and willing to lend a paw whenever I wrap my paintings as well ..so anyone allergic to Kitty cats ..well you know.
This painting is called The Keeper and I enjoyed painting this one ..lots of inspiration from Limone on that one.
My last painting which I just finished and it's not quite dry even as I'm typing (though I just took a picture of it) is called "Bunny Recitals" and I receive a lot of "Oh, she's so cute" from my niece (she's seven) and I'm not sure if this one will make it to eBay or not (I think I'm going to paint one for Elena with her own hair color ..she'll love that).
I heard the front door slam which means any second now I'll be hearing "what's for dinner?" ...I'd rather be painting!

I must be the worst blogger in history! I can't believe another year has gone and I've done absolutely nothing on this blog. I'm sure I'm not getting a lot of traffic from anyone reading my blog (there's not much to read) but I have been busy painting. I'm still eBay, though the traffic is slow, but it doesn't quell my inspiration to share my work.
Here are a couple of paintings that I just recently finished and haven't put up for sale yet. Hope you enjoy them.
This is one of my Valentine paintings "love", I really love the way she came out. The mermaid is also really cute. I haven't done mermaids in ages and I really wanted to paint one again and what better time than now!
