Illustration Friday: Glow

May we all coexist in peace
and bask in the glow of friendship.

Wishing all of my friends a most brightest and best holiday season, no matter how or what you celebrate.

Love always,

Animal Wednesday: A Winter retreat for Bliss

Bliss has a new winter cabin to retreat to.
(That's catnip scattered inside.)

She ♥'s it!

 She loves her little hiding places where no one, and I mean NO one, can see her!

Do you see her? I didn't think so!

 And Emma, ever vigilant in the studio window pretends not to care that Bliss got a new cabin, but she does.
She's pouting as I type this!

Happy Animal wednesday!

StickTight and Sophie

These are my bosses sweet, sweet dogs, StickTight and Sophie.
Our Christmas party is this coming Sunday and this is her gift. The painting, by yours truly, and the staff is paying for the framing. I can't wait for her to open it!
I screwed up the frame but that's another story! It will all be okay.

I'm hoping after the holidays I will be more present, both here on the blogs and in my life. This has been a tough year having to go back into the real working world full time again, especially at my age when I should be thinking about slowing down. My gratitude is for having been hired at my age!

Thanks to my loyal followers who bear with me even though I'm not visiting as much. I appreciate and miss you!

I have four days off coming up and two more commissions and family coming and and and....!!!!
I will get through it all with gratitude, my constant driving force. 

See you all soon, I hope. I'm really trying!
