Life in the Studio

Welcome to My New Home – let’s catch up!

Welcome to my new website.  It's been a work in progress since January.  First, finding just the right web designer who has the ability to work with an artist and actually understand what we want, not an easy task.   As you know, we artists tend to be a little finicky, we don't want just blue, we want Phthalo Blue to the red shade.  Fortunately I found an artist who also doubles as a web designer, a perfect fit.  Thank you Leanne.  My next step was to begin the design process, but that was not to be.  For those of you who don't know me on Facebook I will catch you up.  We, my husband and I, lost two precious members of our fur family last spring, both to cancer.  Our sweet girls Dixie and Savannah.

Dixie and Savannah

It was a long painful winter into spring for all of us.  We lost Dixie in March and then said goodbye to Savannah 8 weeks later.  Poor Charlie, the 3rd member of our pack, was left alone to care for his humans.   A few days after we kissed our sweet Savannah goodbye my husband showed up with a furry little bundle of energy.   Her name is Lucy, because every Charlie should have a Lucy.  I'm not sure Charlie agrees with us. This little whirlwind we brought into his life keeps him on his toes with her growls, barks and non-stop chewing.  She thinks he is the best toy ever!  For me, she is a delight to have around and a wonderful distraction when I find myself feeling melancholy.

  Once I got through potty training, sleepless nights of puppy yips and returned from family vacations I was able to focus on building my new website.  It's been a long time coming and I hope you like it.  New products, note cards and prints will be added to the Shop over the next few months.

Models or Critics?

Models or critics?  I'm not sure.  I think they are both just looking for attention.  Kinda like kids when you are on the phone.  They know you can't run because you're in the middle of a wash, so who cares if there's a footprint or two in the middle of it.  Just as long as they get the attention they so desperately need.
