I finished the cat portraits of Scout and Finn with Ellie May's constant guidance. She is so calming, such a dear!
While gathering my cat and dog prints for something special I looked over at one of our beloved Polly (miss her so much) and I noticed that the lace curtains had created a beautiful pattern on the picture which blended in with the lace in the painting.
We had company on Monday... some wonderful friends visited and
we met their sweet and adorable Westie named Winnie for the first time.
Well, we were a bit worried about how Brody would react to meeting Winnie so we left him behind a screen door so that we could introduce them with a safety net between them. He appeared very skeptical from a distance.
When Brody puffed up like a big balloon we decided that we had best not let Brody and Winnie mingle in the same room.
We didn't know what Brody would do for he probably weighs as much as Winnie and though Brody is so gentle and sweet with us we didn't want anything to trigger his aggressive side!
It was such a beautiful warm day... we all enjoyed a walk on the beach in the afternoon.
So happy to reconnect with old friends and I fell in love with Winnie!
The snow is piling up on the trees tonight as Ellie May is about to snuggle in for the evening. We're hoping the snow covered trees don't knock out the power. This is a most unusual snow storm to occur in October in Maine. You can take a look over here.
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
