This little monkey belongs to me. She is one of 14 strays we have adopted over the last 20 years. No! we don't have them all at once. The most we've housed at any one time was 9. Right now we have 5 plus a VERY stray stray. Life in the country. Today the back door got left open and this one took herself for a walk with her house mate. I was so happy when I managed to wrangle them up! it never occurred to me that while they were getting OUT the stray was getting IN. Yikes! Circus act.
My neighbors have recently started surfing. Given we live in the Pacific Northwest that does not conjure up feelings of warm water sport for me! However, the images that small humans make when bobbing about in the ocean make for pretty dynamic compositions.
I have no idea who this little fellow is. I ran into him in a park and snapped his picture. He was so adorable it was impossible to resist. The ears look like the wind has picked them up and he could actually levitate.
This is the beautiful Ms. Onyx. She belongs to Patty and Georgia. I swear she's going to open her mouth and join the conversation one day. She follows our faces when we talk just like she knows what's being discussed. Amazing.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
