Born on the Bayou

I call him the Bayou Clown - I think it's the trees that make me think of the bayou even though there isn't any moss.  And he looks kind of Mardi Gras to me.  Or maybe he's the Stumpy Lake Clown from my neck of the woods, or perhaps he's a she and is french like my friend Lisa said.  I'll let you decide.  :o)
Another recycled, mixed media sculpture using a plastic bottle, a burned out light bulb and various other items.

Flickr anyone?

I can get lost for hours in this place if I am not careful!  So many fantastic pictures and artists and on and on.  Someone help me please...  ;o)
This photostream captured my attention today (thanks to my friend Stephanie):  These Days in French Life

Alas, lunch time is now over.

Keep a Song in Your Heart

I almost finished this in time for Valentines day... almost...
Inspired from the book "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts. I just wanted to give it a try because her paintings are so fun.

Still not good with taking photos - it washed out a bit at the top. Most likely a lighting issue huh? :o(

Most Snow in 20 years

Hard to believe I was even living here in Virginia Beach twenty years ago.  Well, almost twenty.  It's been 19 years and some months.  But hey, who's counting right?  This So Cal girl landed in good ol' VA and never left.  Now back to the snow conditions.  It was AWESOME!  Lots of that white stuff coming down so quiet and soft.  I loved it.  Gave me a good reason not to go into work on a Saturday - Hooray! I took some pictures but they are not great.  I think it's the camera (seriously! ha ha).  These pictures were taken about noon and we got much more after this.  Amazingly, Va Beach got the most snow of the 7 cities and usually that is not the case. :o)

Now for some of my moon pictures (Back Bay as usual)

How about a few more photos since I am on a roll...
Deer at Dusk - Back Bay

I can't resist - Sydd.  I wish you guys could experience the amazing personality of this little guy.  He is such a busy body, into everything, always smiling, happy to see people.  Here he is wiped out!  The really blue face photo was because I forgot to change the white balance (ugh).

And lastly... Kitty Love and Bear Love were just posted on Etsy.  It's been forever since I put anything in the shop and I figured I'd better get something in there before the cobwebs set in. :o)

How's that for making up for the lack of posting over the last couple of months?
