Think this might be my first NSFW Post

I did get some time this week to work on a couple of paintings. Not much, but at least I got everything out and worked for a little while. It is frigid cold in my studio. I have a heater in there and once I have had it on for a while it is nice, but I have to tell you – it is NOT inviting before that this time of the year. Sunday and Monday are mostly tied up with other commitments this week, so I don’t think I will have time to paint again for a bit.

This cat painting has been floating around for a long time. I wasn’t happy with it and didn’t know why so I hadn’t picked it back up again. I finally decided that if I disliked it that much I had to do SOMETHING with it… so I think this is better, but still has more to go…

Wednesday I made a portrait for Beckie of her Dad. Did not manage to get a good photo – hoping to hunt her down (I owe her a Starbucks visit) and get some better photos once it is healed. And yes Gretchen, I know I am still whining about my photography skills and haven’t actually done anything about it.
I’ll get there eventually (maybe) (maybe someday) (yeah, probably not)…

Holly came to visit me as part of her Birthday Week celebration (yeah!!! I win!!!). We had much fun. I played hookey from the shop for most of the day. There was butterfly poo, pinball, mysteries, harps, climbing, cheesecake, grins and giggles and at the end of the day there was this:

mercockalope    I had dubbed it the cockled koi-a-lope, but Joey came up with MerCockalope the next day which I actually like better.

Friday we had the “Big Storm” and my client was unable to come in. Miss you Dina – big hugs and we will get together again soon.

Today John came in for another sit on his Family Tree. Looks like we should be able to finish this one up in one more session. On this one the photos aren’t that bad – but I didn’t do a very good job of getting all the excess ink off of his arm before I took the photos. You get the idea anyhow.
