I've been spending some time downsizing my junk and I am getting bogged down. So today I'm taking an art day and am continuing my education in digital art from Rande Hanson at Paperwhimsy. I'm loving what I am learning. Today I erased the background of an old plate and added it to a garden.

And here was my work in progress. I found I really enjoyed having a paint brush in my hand again!
Mall of America. Junk Bonanza was fantastic! And I was able to fit in some bird watching.

My favorite class was making a small collage for a glass tile pendant. Here are the two I made:

I'm going to be traveling to Portland in Oregon this week. I'll be there 10 days and I hope I will be able to do a little antique mall shopping. I hear the temperature might go down to 59 degrees. I sure hope so! I haven't had a breath of cool air in months. I hope to post from there, but if not I'll be back in two weeks. Hope you are having good weather in your corner of the world!

I have decided to try making some digital art. This is my first effort. I purchased the elementary images from Paperwhimsy and followed the tutorial written by Rande Hanson for Paperwhimsy. You can learn more about Rande at her blog r2artstudio. It is a lot easier than I thought it would be and can hardly wait to try some more.

I'm a cat lover. As are many artists. This is Luigi and Oliver (above), two of my three cats hastily acquired after the death of my other three cats. My other cats died of old age and the ailments that accompany it. But they all decided to go over the course of a year. Heartsick and missing my furry friends, I adopted a stray and then two feral kittens rather hastily. I heartily recommend adopting two kittens instead of one. These are brothers. They are so much fun and entertain each other and us constantly.

It's been a busy week. The weather has warmed up and I try to grab an hour here and there to sit under a palm tree, read, and listen to the ocean. So relaxing. I didn't always live near the ocean. I lived in a house with a simple backyard. There was a birdbath and a hammock. I used to lie in that hammock in the back yard, read, look up into the trees and listen to the birds. And there were times when there was no backyard. A blanket in the park did just fine. I don't make much time now for such luxuries but I am trying to change that. I hope that you do too.
