  • Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint,
    and the soil and sky as canvas.
  • Annie WIP #2


    Just turned the cam off. Here’s the scan of Scarlett & Sebastian, and the underpainting of Annie. I have not refined her eyes or her coat yet, I will finish her tomorrow.

    Carly Sue – Scan & Reference Photo


    HERE she is…

    The flash & background really washed her colors out in this photo, and mom had sent a dozen or so to work from so I enhanced her colors using another photo that didn’t make her eyes and coat look “pale”. :)

    I’ve got some treadmilling to do before I start painting this morning, so I’ll update when I’m ready to start. Yeaaah, alright I’ll paint on cam. :P~



    Homecoming is the final title for this painting. The scan is phenominal, and I’ll throw a couple of closeups in here too, the dog tags as well as my sig. Beautiful piece, I’m a proud mama.

    I’ll start working on a sweetie of a Calico all curled up. I’ll get her sketched out this afternoon and you can have a look at her tonight before I start painting tomorrow.

    Wow. I’m speechless.


    They are gorgeous. Wow.

    2 Completed, One new one in progress


    I have the final scans of Mo & Cleo for you, both have been varnished and are ready to ship. I love both of them, they are beautiful animals.

    I have my webcam on already. My head and heart are both in need of a major release. I’ll be working on my emotional piece, you may be able to see the sketch on the canvas and you may remember the composition. If the cam lags or anything just hop on Yahoo IM and holler at me there ok? (my ID is “intricateartist”.)

    I’m going to leave the webcam on all day, and probably all night, and all day tomorrow. I’m not going to shut it off until this piece is done. I may not check back in here until then either.

    Thank you. For your thoughts, prayers, and e-mails. I love you guys. (sniffles)

    Here are the two beauties of the day:

    Cleo’s reference (I’ve already posted Mo’s):

    Gus – the Scan


    Here’s Gus, the final scan. I didn’t make any further revisions, his Ma & Pa are happy and that’s that!

    What a wierd day, a friend of mine decided to give me a mindbender of a read about John Titor. If you haven’t heard of him, he (his name being an alias) is a time traveler who seemingly very innocently visited a public forum or two while he was (here) in the year 2000-2001, he is from 2036. Wild stuff, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it if you get a chance to read! Fact or Fiction?

    I woke up way too early today with way too much pain in my foot. The bruising has set in, and it’s creepy looking!! I actually began to think my foot was going to fall off. Then I failed miserably in the shower and got my bandages wet. Good grief, I’m going to get in trouble! My doc, sweet and smart and so very very thorough, has been very strict with me about helping her help me heal. And I’m a terrible patient, because I believe I know what’s best for me. :P~

    I did run (not literally) to Blockbuster lastnight and pick up “Day After Tomorrow”, what a great movie! (Mark? Did you see it? Want me to send it to you?) They also had “Girl With A Pearl Earring” on sale so I snagged it up too. I read the book, haven’t seen the movie yet. I’d like to sit down with some popcorn and Pearl later tonight.

    I’ll start painting my next piece tomorrow! I know Mo came in second with your pick, but I need to purr a little bit between woofs, know what I mean? So guess who I’ll paint next? ;)

    Hope you are all having a great day, it’s cold, raining, and eerily too much like fall turning to winter here! IEW!!! (Anyone with a rake, you are invited to my house as soon as possible. Bring friends, and have your friends bring their rakes, too.)


    Million Dollar Man & Pearl


    Mark’s portrait is finished and listed.

    You can see his eBay listing here: Mark’s Portrait Auction

    I’ve also listed Girl With A Pearl Earring, you can see her eBay listing here:
    Pearl’s Auction

    I spent a lot of time writing their details, and preparing their auction images, so I hope you enjoy them both!

    Loves & Hugs!

    Silly Family Photo Day


    Gotta love that ten-second timer!!!

    Done done done done done!


    I think! LOL I know, you guys don’t see any difference do you? I will update the collage of all of the work in progress pics later on.

    I’ve got her hanging/drying in my new red room. ;)

    Here she is in the evening, Wow. I love the ambiance!

    you can click on the thumbs for a larger view, but be warned, the paint is still wet and I reserve the right to tweak her as needed. :D

    Now I don’t know when I will be updating, maybe later tonight, maybe not for a few days, I really don’t know yet! I will try to let you know!
