New Art Work

My little desk is very full but it is good to work
here and I can feel that the spirit of Ellie May
is still in the air guiding and inspiring me wherever
I may be.

It is a comfort to have Brody visit me often
and sometimes I don't realize he is there!

just a glimpse of some new art prints...

A Delightful Birthday Party

My cat niece, Tiger, had a birthday party last week.
I was delighted to receive these photos of the
special occasion.

The table was set...

notice Tiger's cake with the candle?
(she has been a fussy eater when it comes to the
wet food but recently they discovered one kind that
she loves!)

The candle was lit and they didn't expect
Miss Tiger to be so enthusiastic about her "cake"
so they quickly extinguished the flame.

Here's one happy Birthday girl!

Where's Brody

For days I have been reorganizing my work spaces
in the house and studio. I find it's a good
distraction from my sadness and I'm accomplishing
something though it doesn't look too different
for I am still cluttered but it is organized clutter!

This morning I didn't realize Brody was in the room with me
(this has been happening lately)
until I heard a soft purring sound.
Upon turning around at my desk, this is what I saw.

Can't help but bring a smile...
looks like he is at an important meeting
with colleagues and everyone is hanging on
his every word.

Remembering Ellie May

Since we lost our beloved Ellie May
on February 9, 2012
I have been thinking about her constantly.
The memory of her fills my heart with love
and I miss her dearly.

I have so many photos and
drawings of her that I hope to be able put together
to create a picture of her amazing life
from the first time I met her at a time when
she lived with someone else above
our gallery in 1993 and how she ended up with us.
Here is a little glimpse of Ellie May
when she was just a tiny kitten embarking
on a big adventure...
she met so many people along her journey
and this is for everyone who may have met her
and those who would have loved to have met her!

Sad News

Last night we lost our dearly beloved and amazing cat,
Ellie May.
She was nearly 20 years old and the memories of her
will be in our hearts always.
She touched so many people and animals!
She had an amazing personality and a life full of adventures
and I hope to be able to someday share them through my
art and words
to keep her memory alive.

We miss Ellie May so much and it was such an honor
to be able to be a part of her life...we learned so much from her!

The Wildlife Around Me Today

Chippy has appeared from hibernation early!

Soaring over near the beach
the light caught the wings of this
magnificent hawk.

Over at our bird feeder we put out
some clementines and I seem to
have captured a chickadee in flight!

Oh, and yesterday this red squirrel was hitching
a ride on a turtle!

Have you noticed any interesting things
in nature?
