"Muddy" for Illustration Friday

Here's my entry for the "Muddy" topic of the week.
Rainy days are muddy days but not for this kitty!

Post Blizzard ...Just another snowy day

I can't believe we just had our third major snowstorm in a row.  There is so much snow outside, it's blinding!  The first day or so it's nice but after that I start to yearn for something other than thermal wear ...I miss the sun!

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 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.


The painting is much nicer in person but my photography is about as good as my blogging ...needs work!
I also painted my "Flower Girls" which I have not posted on eBay yet and may do so tonight.  This is my ode to Spring painting and I really like the way they came out.  This was mostly a mixed media piece and everyone knows, I love collage and bees wax!

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!
