Rainbow Cat series continues

"Blueberry Cat"

Kudzu Birds

"Kudzu Birds of Rt. 19"
8x10 inches, acrylic on wood.

Based on magnificent kudzu pillars off of Route 19. Guest appearances by the Sea Lizard, spotted owl (road-killed on 19 near Lebanon last week), watermelon (seen road-killed on 19 near Abingdon last summer), and the Environmentally Friendly Cat.

Titmice Talking

"Titmice Talking"
11x14 inches, acrylic on board.

Quite possible, the last small bird painting for a while. It may also be possible that the previous sentence is a filthy lie. (Been watching titmice on the bird feeder recently, and been wanting to do dogwood khokhloma-style for a while.)

3x5 inches, acrylic on board.
~1x2 feet, acrylic on slate.
Been going downhill recently in terms of feeling isolated/unproductive/helpless. Not really sure what to do about it and not really sure if it's worth doing anything about.

New project.

Me: *Walking through the door* "Hey, hon! I just got myself into another project with no possibility of profit! :D"
Josh: *While stirring pasta sauce, and absent-mindedly* "Good, good.."

Anyway, here's a couple of coloring pages for promotion of Abingdon's Wolf project. It's a public art project to raise money for the program promoting Main street.

Finally finished with "The Raven and the Crow". Not-so-good picture, due to all too bright light this morning.
Aaand, retouched an oldie-but-goodie Salamander. All the stylized flowers occur in this area, though not all are wild.

All of the items below are 8x8 inches, acrylic on wood (for the landscape) and canvas (for the cats.)

 Coquette Calico.
 Smell of Snow.
Watermelon Cat.

Monster update and kitties.

Looks like I'm out of a studio space, and am not sure if I can afford another one.
Ah well.

And kitties.
