One of the groups I am involved with is having an atc swap at the end of the month so I decided to do a few of them and see if I could catch up with all the swaps. I didn't quite make it, but got this far today. The theme for this swap was "Candy", so this was my take on it. The one on the left has an S in the upper left corner that stands for "Suspect" and the words on the bottom read "The Artist furtively clutching a painting, slipped out at 11:50 p.m. He wanted______Candy".
I hope you all got candy for valentines day and enjoy!!!

Decided it was time to do some fun little ATC's for our Love theme in Feb. This is what I came up with.

Am also trying to change my header, but as usual I am struggling with my photo programs and locating the picture to put in.

More to come as due dates are closing in on 4 X 4's and more atc's.

Portrait of a friend

Here is my friend Odie. He is not my dog but my neighbors.
Every morning I go to my neighbors when I get out of bed, in my pajamas and robe and slippers to have my morning coffee. Gary is already off to work, you see, so it's ok.
Odie is a Maltese and as soon as I sit down, he begs to come up on my lap, where he proceeds to take a nap while I drink my two cups of coffee. As soon as I put my spoon in the cup indicating that I am done, he, without hesitation, knows it's time for me to go and jumps down. Just like clockwork.
I've never painted a dog before, but am pretty pleased with this one. It actually looks like Odie even though I probably could shade him in a little more. I painted him fresh from the bath, so he is really white.
Next week he is going to have some surgery to remove a lump from his chest. He suffers with seizures from time to time and he is about 7 human years old, so it is risky, but necessary.
Hope you enjoy my painting, and get inspired to do a piece of art today.
