Starlight Mint, 4x4, Acrylic
FlowerBomb, 5x7 Acrylic
What would you do if you got new cologne - me, too - PAINT IT! This is 'FlowerBomb' by Victor & Rolf (whoever THEY are) that I got talked into at Nordstrom's on Saturday night. Tim likes it and it's a pretty bottle. It's growing on me, but not my usual stuff. My 'scent expert' is my friend Joan, who will give me the 'yay' or 'nay' when she sees me.
I keep stuggling with glass and reflective surfaces. Some more successful than others. I wonder how much of the less successful stuff I should put out on the blog. But it's a blog, and not a 'website' for strict sales purposes. If I can have fun and share what I'm working on, I'm happy! If other people like it and let me know, so much the better! Thanks to everyone who submits a comment. Each one is appreciated!

HARRY! (would have been Shrimp, acrylic, 6x6)
The bottom photo is the painting right after I finished it, spent a good couple of hours on it, finally happy with it. I walked over to the computer and heard this horrendous crash, looking up in time to see Harry (my 10 month old ginger kitten) leaping out of the debris of my easel/taboret. The wet painting was underneath the big piece of furniture, with the water from my pail gushing all over the floor around it. Soooo... I guess he thought it was too 'tight', because now it looks like the top photo! Just wanted to show that I wasn't slacking off today, but there isn't exactly a finished painting to show for it. Anyway, what happend was that Harry leapt onto the palette which is on an open drawer, and his weight (10 pounds, maybe) jumping on to it tipped the whole show over. He has a few new nicknames after today. No, I don't t think I'll share them!
