Greetings All,
Here is another in the Shades series. I am currently working on one in reds, one in greens and a wonderful piece in blues. That should complete Shades.
Things are quiet here so I guess that means I need to get busy! Don't need an excuse to go play except I should be house cleaning. NOT!!! LOL

Greetings all!
Well today has been most interesting. Hubby Dear and I had to get up a lot earlier than usual as the electrician was coming first thing to fix a minor problem. Got that all done and Fred decided the bed was calling him.
So I am downstairs framing paintings, taking photos and playing in the studio when Lexi, the alarm dog goes off like a banshee. I thought someone was at the front door and as I got closer to it, I heard a strange squawking almost like a goose and then a loud mean meow. So, I grabbed the broom and headed around from the side door.
On the front porch was our neighbor's orange striped tabby standing guard. I heard the noise again and looked up to see a squirrel on the second story window! And boy was he aggravated! So here is the picture! He made a mad dash down to the porch railing and the side of the house once he figured out the cat has left!!!

Seems we dodged the bullet on this latest storm a few days ago and only got a windy rain storm.
Here is my American Indian tribute painting, Warrior Tears, done in encaustics. It is very vivid in color and has a ton of texture. I am so loving this medium!
Things here are quiet today so I am off to the studio to play. Just got in a new shipment of wax from Awesome stuff, very true colors and a nice melt temperature. Thanks, Sonja!
Stay warm and hug those you love....

This piece is SOLD

Enjoy your day!

Silver Moments

Greetings from wet Georgia!
Seems I have been in a reflective frame of mind lately. Mostly good thoughts and memories of times past. My mood seems to come through stronger in my encaustic pieces for what reason I do not know. Here is a piece from my "Shades" series.

Greetings All,
A long, long time ago Momma Glenda told me if I continued to fill my pea brain with trivia, one day it would explode. Here is my newest self portrait, titled Trivial Explosion. (She was right, darnit!) Am really getting into my encaustic works and made another sale today. Thank you, Belle!
So take the time to smell the coffee, hug your loved ones and keep on keepin' on!
