Wolf At Rest

I've been under the weather lately with bronchitis, so I haven't been up to doing much art. But last weekend I was cuddled up on the recliner under a blanket, with a sketchbook, a pad of watercolor paper and my watercolor pencils.
I first tried painting the wolf in pink since it's Breast Cancer Awareness month...but I didn't like how it was turning out. I had done a Pink Tiger aceo a few years ago that I just love, but a pink wolf was not a go.
This is what I then came up with. I call it Wolf At Rest, and am thinking of using it for my Christmas cards this year. The reference photo was taken a few years back at a wolf sanctuary in Forest Lake, MN. I do have to admit that I really like how it turned out, and I already created products with this image at my Zazzle Shop.Coming soon is a beautiful pink and yellow rose painting that I did before I got sick, but it still needs some finishing touches. I will post it when I get it finished.
I hope you are well.
Blessings to you all,

Bags, Bags and more Bags

I've been creating products in my Artamatik shop lately, so I thought I'd share some of the items with you. Ya, I know, I must be nuts to take on another online shop. But what can I say, I love seeing my paintings on merchandise. Things that I want to buy.
Everything you see here can be found under the Cougar Bags & Purses, except for the wallet, that is found in accessories.

Wallet $13.99

Thank you for stopping by.
Until next time,

Pendant Winner

I am very delighted to announce that Marlene aka lazyhawk is the winner of my pendant giveaway. Congratulations Marlene!!!! All you have to do is choose which one you want from my etsy shop and let me know.


I finally took some time to go through some of my photos that I took this summer at the Como Park Zoo. These are some of my favorites. They had a butterfly garden, it was a tented area, where there were tons of beautiful butterflies of all kinds. Everywhere you looked, butterflies. It was like being in a fairy land.

You had to be careful where you stepped, because they would land on the sidewalk.

There was this one kind (above), it was quite big, that we were trying to capture (with the camera) with it's wings spread, but they just weren't cooperating with us. Then at the end there was this guy, showing off his beautiful colors! It was magnificent!!!! What a treat.

Spread your wings and fly.

Have a wonderful weekend.
