Nemo knot

It’s been a whole month since Nemo passed away, and although it feels like a year one moment and like yesterday the next, he is still always on my mind. I dug out the celtic knot sketch I did of him a few months…

Job opening: Bird Chaser

Nemo took ridding the docks of messy birds pretty seriously. No boater diligently spends hours cleaning his prized boat to get ready for guests and then wants his family to walk down the dock and climb in after traipsing through gobs of bird poop,…

Nemo shrine

My Big Black Dog’s box is in its place of honor on my desk. I realized that with his ashes and all the photos around (yes, there are more than just shown here), the only thing my dog shrine is missing is a candle.

Sparky adds to feather collection

Little Black Dog did better with his evening walk this time. We got all the way down to the fuel dock where he found a large black feather…. and then decided the walk was finished and took his feather home. A walk across the…

Doodle sketches

I did some drawings to go on the back of the activity/word search pages we put out each weekend at the church. The original idea was that there would be a coloring page for any kids who come, but also a difficult enough word…

Happy birthday, Shermie

Remembering Shermie on his birthday today. The Sherminator was my original Big Black “Dog” when I first started pet portraits. He would come when called like one of the dogs. Better than the dogs, actually. Philphil trained him well. Save

Finished Orange Grove mural

Finished up the Orange Grove storefront mural at SJ’s International Food Market at 1108 Overcash Drive in Dunedin, Florida over Thanksgiving weekend.This area of town used to be part of a large orange grove back in the day. Dunedin is known as a very…

Starting new mural

SJ International Food Market has opened in Dunedin, Florida and the owner, Som, has asked me to paint a mural on the front windows. There is an orange grove going across the entire front and then a few other key focal points. I had…

Sparkly supernova of glittery awesomeness

I have a lot of sparkly friends that this is for. Please continue shining on.

Diva flashback

Oh my goodness. One of the annoying things about having gone through being the recipient of toxic chemicals being pumped directly into your heart (aka chemotherapy) is the memory loss, or rather memory vagueness of my past self. I mean, I can still sit…

Personalized artwork

I recently made these these pieces for some boater friends that I wanted to share. I love making artwork personalized like this because it’s not just the “same old” anyone can pick up in a retail store but specific to the tastes and interests…

Upscale Resale storefront windows

In between rain showers and the humidity, it took me more than normal time to paint Janice’s windows, but they are up and done. I think I will be going back and adding a top border with leopard print…. and possibly doing the same…

Don’t be a doormat

Disappointed that I have managed to get to 50 and still cannot remember this lesson when I need to. smh Reblogged from SuperSparklyMe.com.

Catnip coma

Grey muzzles

My Nemo’s muzzle is gone nearly all silver. He was right up near the pillow when I took this picture and I am surprised it came out in focus. He usually makes the effort to sneak up next to me not so much to…

Happy New Year 2016

Good news

Just got good news about last week’s PET scan: at first one in August I lit up like a Christmas tree and now my neck and chest are clear and the abdominal zone has come way down. Also, my bone marrow is showing as…

Birthday painting

It’s Charlie’s birthday today! While we are in mid-reno of his house, he had casually mentioned that perhaps I would paint a mural of some sort on one of the walls, nothing in particular. I thought about it and decided on the perfect subject:…

Merry Christmas 2014
