New Paintings!

I Have two new paintings to show you. Yes, I've been busy! The first one is two children out on a cool gloomy day finding a little owl who fell from it's nest. This flat 8"X10" canvas has holes drilled at the top and a black satin ribbon strung through it for hanging. I like the mood of this painting, it makes me think of being a child discovering something magical on a crisp autumn afternoon.

The second painting is kind of silly! I woke up one morning this week imagining these. It made me smile just thinking of trying to paint them, so here are my little flying fairy kitties! They each have such cute little expressions, like they are not sure if they should really be flying! I hope to list these paintings this weekend sometime.

For those of you interested, I listed the kitty ornaments and purse from a previous post on Ebay this afternoon.

















I am savoring these last few days of summer vacation before I go back to work. I enjoy the easy stress free lifestyle with my high school and college aged children during these precious 3 months of togetherness. Moments of relaxing together are fleeting and few once everyone gets back into the swing of a new school year. As I sit here at the table finishing up my lunch, I count my blessings that we enjoyed another happy golden summer together!

The little girls in red remind of Tara and Laura when they were little and they had their little red riding hood capes. The flying kitties must come from the dreams you've been having. so cute.

Cute paintings, Cris. I love autumn. I wish we had more of it here in Denver. It seems to just go right on by, especially if we get a snow in September. Then the leaves just drop.

The fairy kitties are too cute. heehee. I love the other painting below as well. I know you will miss painting and hanging with the kids. At least they are still young enough to be there. Someday they will have homes and jobs to go to. Maybe they will drop off their kid (your grand kids) lol and you can start it all over.
