Happy Spring 2011

   I have been drawing a little cat named "Creeper"  for a project with a friend.  Danny Langone is a wonderful author that has a great gift for poetic creations of all kinds. He is the author of a fictional novel called  "Flybait's Lament",  which I ordered from his publisher and read a while back. Danny will have his second novel published soon and I cant wait to finish reading it then.  That one is called "Wilt's Hollow"

    So anyway "Creeper " is a  little tale about a cat. It will make a touching children's book.  He has been so nice  to ask me to make some illustrations to go along with his words.  I m so excited to be working on this.  wouldn't it  be great to have a book my grand daughter would be able to treasure forever?.  and I know she would...because she loves animals and she loves books and she loves her Gam-Gam  (That's me)

I've been fighting a nasty cold all week and now I am getting better.  Knock on wood!... and now my days and nights are all mixed up.

   I guess I have been working on a mixture of things lately.  I am perhaps going to move into a bigger studio space at the studios on Main building in town.  I really need to have a permanent place to paint and work on creating stuff other than home and my poor table there.  Wed.  I will be checking out a studio space and see if it will work.  The number one thing I need is sufficiant lighting.  and storage space for my supplies.  So we shall see what happens this coming week.
