Doggies And Art

Up first……Pedro and Lobo. 







They are getting ready for winter! 





And of course more Aceos! 

Crow Girl  
Love how this one turned out.


First three were done with acrylic paint on watercolor paper. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. 

Done with markers and ink on art paper. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. 



Less than a month until we move! I'm getting tired of looking at boxes around the house here. Just can't wait to get settled in the new place. Sorry I have been around regularly to everyone's blog, been busy packing and just trying to do as much art as I can here and there. Plus the doggies demand my time, they are like little kids. Lol!

Aceos & Puppy

Here are some of my newest aceos. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. 

 Girl watercolor painting. 

Winter scene acrylic painting. 

Owl watercolor painting. Lol the look on his face! 


Gray bunny watercolor painting. 

I would like to introduce to you our new puppy Lobo. He is actually our other chihuahua Pedro's real brother. Same parents. The color of his coat is called Blue, it's gray, but in the photos it shows a little on the brown side. His eyes are a gray green blue, so pretty. The two of them together is like a three ring circus here! They have so much energy. 




I see you Lobo.

Have a great week!

It Has Been......

Exactly one month today since I last posted on my blog! I'm a bad bad blogger.

Anyways I don't have anything specific to post about right now, but trying really hard to get back on track....for the millionth time. Hope everyone is doing well on your end. Can't believe that it's almost October. This is my favorite time of the year, but wonder where the year went?!?!

Have a nice weekend.

Bunny Girl

Felicity the bunny girl is my newest clay art doll. 





It's looking better at home now. Still have some hurdles, but that's life I guess. I'm trying to keep a positive outlook and now that things are kind of calming down I'm going to try to catch up with stuff with my art and online. So expect more art and I'll be visiting your blogs soon. 

Have a great day!

Doors

In the last blog post I shared some personal stuff and mentioned about shutting one door in my life and opening another. Well that saying gave me inspiration to do some aceo paintings of doors. I like the fact that these doors can have a dual meaning in which one can see the door as a way to shut the bad stuff behind them or to open a new chapter in their life.


Door #1

Door #2

Door #3

All measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and were done with acrylic paint on watercolor paper.

Normally I Don't.....

Like to talk too much about my personal life, but feel like this might be one of the many steps to take to move forward. I won't go into every little detail of my life because the internet is not the place to do it, plus it's not your burden to take on. What I can say is that things at home with my family and I changed, my world got turned upside down. The change has been a slow gradual (years) but the major change came within the last four weeks. My mother had a stroke and for the most part she is ok but has complications from it, we lost our 13 year old Dachshund Sampson due to health problems and age and then five days afterwards we had to say goodbye to our 7 year old Beagle Lenny due to cancer. Jump back to last December we also lost our other Dachshund Delilah (12yrs) due to heart problems. So now we have one dog Pedro the Chihuahua and oh how I love the little guy. There's a big hole in my heart and that hole goes way beyond what I just shared though. Even though things got/are bad I have hope, something that I didn't totally feel before. It might sound strange and of course I would like not to live through this mess, who would?, but all the grief and anger are eye openers and also to make some changes. It won't be easy because there are somethings that I have no control over and will have to carry them with me forever, but now I feel that I can kind of shut one door in my life and open another.

New Sweater

Here's something a little different from me. Check out Mr. Owl's new sweater.  

"New Sweater" Aceo acrylic painting. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
Mr. Owl shows off his new sweater he just got for those upcoming cold months.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. There has been some major bumps in the road at home recently. Trying very hard to get back to some kind of normal. Doing the above little painting helped though. I sometimes tend to forget that art can do that.  

I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

Catch ya later.
