It's hard work, decorating for the Holly-Days. Tires a sweet little kitten plumb out.
So while Mona Bug (and Finni too!) catches up on her beauty sleep, I'm working on two other portraits, companion pieces to yesterday's "Couch Potato (Sophia)."
Meanwhile, enjoy the "Siblings" slideshow of Finnigan and Mona Lisa.
Thank YOU for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -
Wishing you a very happy holiday season -
Finnigan: "hmmm, I don't think I've thoroughly smelled this end yet....."
"Yum, she's got nasty smelling fish breath!"
"But now, what's she doing, what's she doing...?! OH NO!!"
"MOM! Mona's touching me!!"
The Third Book!!
Over the weekend I completed - and published - my newest book, "Come Sit Stay." This volume summarizes all the Dog a Day paintings from 2009 and has lots of other extras.
I've gotten many requests about ordering personalized copies of the book. I do regret that my workload precludes the offering of signed copies this year - I can barely stay current with email!!
In past years, the inscribing, wrapping and shipping of well over 100 personalized copies took up 3-4 full days. This December I needed that time for painting and planning a January exhibition (and staying on top of my emails)!
However, I CAN inscribe a card which you may tuck into the book. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in - and of course, with holiday gift giving, time is of the essence.
Meanwhile, you may order your copies directly from Blurb. (and I have a coupon code for free shipping on 3 or more copies to the same address - email me your destination and I'll get the code to you!)
Image wrapped hardcover, $64.95
I also kept last year's price structure, just to make it a little bit easier for you.
Thanks so very much!
I am so excited to share with you the lessons I've created exclusively for this year's Make Create Express event. The first one features butterflies and will be part of the free Creative Retreat Weekend July 11-12th. The butterfly lesson will only be available, entirely for free, during this weekend event. However BOTH lessons, the butterfly and a wonderful rabbit painting workshop, are part of the year long Make Create Express. And I'm just one of 25 other artists who have made extraordinary content. Want in? Of course you do! We are less than 3 weeks out from the Creative Retreat Weekend , and to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Giveaway. I get to give away 1 place in the Make Create Express year long workshop. This is a $120 value - think of the art supplies you can buy with that sort of savings!! To enter just share this particular blog post on Facebook and be sure to tell me that you have done so (shared this) by commenting here on the blog by 8pm on June 25th. I
