This is a new painting I just finished this morning. It's an 8x10 watercolor crayon, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic and ink on watercolor paper.

I'm painting a little bit every morning. Mostly I'm busy selling real estate. People are actually buying now. Not a lot of people, but I do have clients and homes for sale.

New painting - this is an 8x10 watercolor, watercolor crayon and pencil on watercolor paper. It's my goal to paint some every day, even though I'm busy with other stuff.

This is my cat Imp and foster cat Cheddar. Cheddar and his brother Mittens got adopted by a nice family. I have kept one of the kittens Butter, and he's a great little cat.

I'm not fostering any more cats now, I'm focusing on fundraising. It's too hard to let the foster cats go.

This is what I've been doing lately - fostering kittens. These came from a house out in the country where there was 100s of cats - people just kept dumping unwanted cats there and none of the cats were fixed. You can imagine what happened! These cats are very friendly, and they have small rounded ears. I call them The Teddy Bear Ears Kittens.

Cat and Fish Resist

This is an 8x10 watercolor, pencil and acrylic. It's a new technique I'm experimenting with. First I painted the cat and fish. Then I covered them with liquid rubber, leaving a white border, and painted the backgrounds. Then I removed the rubber and painted in the details.

It's an interesting way to work. The hardest thing is getting the coating on evenly with full coverage.

These are two of the kittens I'm fostering. As soon as they are old enough to be neutered I'm going to adopt them out to good families.

Hi! It's hard to think of what to write since I have been gone so long. I'm painting again every day, my career as a real estate agent is going well (I do mostly rentals and investment property) and I am fostering cats and kittens. Right now I have 15 cats in my house!

Most of the painting I'm doing is watercolor and ink or watercolor and acrylic. This is an 8x10 watercolor and ink on paper.

I helped to organize and art auction fundraiser event in February called Pawcasso which makes money for Spay and Neuter Syracuse, a low cost spay/neuter clinic.

I've been painting again. I'm doing a series of spring themed paintings on canvas. I've been painting on a regular basis again, a little bit every day in the morning and then more on my days off.

Other than that I've been renting apartments, trying to get my house cleaned and organized, reading, and going to the gym a lot.

I'm working on a new page for my apartment rental business and that is taking up a lot of my time.

Since it's my day off I hope to finish the paintings I have in progress. I got a new cover for my bed that is pink roses with light green leaves on a tan background and I'm working on a painting for my bedroom in those colors.
