fruit crates

I had fun pulling out more supplies to fill the fruit crates.  I wanted to put the humidor as the top shelf and move all cigar boxes just for the display.  Decided not to because I use the humidor and boxes all the time while working in my art journal.  They are full of rubber stamps.  So keeping it functional as well as cute.  Maybe I will do it one day just for the photo op then put it back.  Will need John for all that.  My back hurts.

Buster's girlfriend

Buster got a nice surprise visit from his new girlfriend this morning.  He LOVES her.  I and do too.  She was really cute and sweet.

The clematis on each end really went crazy this year. 

My friend donated a patron bottle all the way from Arkansas!  I love it.  Thank you Judy.  I got a few goodies while I was out today.  The peace beads are awesome! 




Spill that wine

Did some writing with the gel pen for more background.  I'm going to call this done even though it doesn't have a big title.

Studio 2013

We spent all day Sunday moving the computer to the other desk.  I now understand the appeal of wireless.  What a pain but I really like it!

The wires were a blessing in disguise.  I had to come up with some way to hide them and therefore
figured out how to get my fruit crates in here!  Haven't finished the display but really happy to get them in here.  Even more art supplies at my feet.

Love having all my wrapped crystals around me.





dream in color

I searched my magazines high and low while making this page for another lizard.  Finally gave up.  The very next magazine I opened had this beauty on the inside cover!  I guess he wants a page of his own.  Love this guy on the TV commercials.  Color!

shrimp boat water color


"I've been having this on my desk for weeks now",  as they say in New Orleans.  I love the way they talk down there.  First thing my friend and I did last year was "make groceries" for the week.  And, we put them in a buggy, not a cart.

I made the water a little bluer for artistic reasons.  Not real thrilled with it but it was good practice.

spider wort


Been feeling a little blocked with my art lately.  The garden is really beautiful after weeks of rain.

Summer 2013



We bought a new liner for the pool this year.  It is really pretty.  The hosta and fern love all this rain.  Had to trim the honeysuckle way back because of aphids again.  I'm thinking of replacing it all together.  I love it because it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.  But if I have to treat it with insecticide that is not a good option.
