Is this what giraffeter?

Am I the only one who has never seen this? It was put-up on YouTube in 2013...however did I miss it?  Amazing and laugh out loud funny.

Looking forward....

I am in the mood to paint and create. I went through a creative funk recently and had a hard time getting going; perhaps it was the long, rainy winter finally settling into my bones. Now that the sun and warmth as returned, the days aren't long enough for me.

I am...

working on the 2018 calendar (one of two or three I hope to produce this year if I can maintain this level of ambition, that is) called Baby Boomer Toys. Oh boy !  That is quite fun. Everything is at the draft stage, but here's a preview of one month.

Be sure to get on the mailing list at the website if you would like notice of its arrival. 
starting another series similar to the Pears series I did here.  My friend Carol asked if I had ever done apples, so..why not? Just the first steps (painting a coat of red bas a base, painting and blending the local color):

I will be selling these (finished, of course!) in prints, cards, and other forms in my new website shop come late June. 

And I have also started a series i call "Family" using old family photos to paint a little collection. i like to think of myself as a watercolor artist, but I gotta tell you, I am enjoying the magic of painting over mistakes or changing one 's mind midstream ...easy to do with acrylic paints, almost nonexistent with watercolor.

Here's a snatch of the first one:

Still a work in progress but getting there.

Finally, my long-delayed Megazine will be revised and updated of for publishing soon, and i am doing my best to keep  up with Carla Sonheim's 365 every day. Well, at least I'm looking at the videos and prompts and thinking about them. That counts a little.

So my funk seems to be over for now, energy if only my Cubbies could get out of their losing funk lately...

Happy Birthday to Mom

Posts have been few and far between this month. I'm working diligently on a redesign of the web site and on some art for the shop. Given no unforeseen glitches, I aim to be ready by the end of June.

But I didn't want this Memorial Day to get by without remembering our Mom, whose birthday was today.  Gosh, she was a pretty woman. I very much see her smiling dimpled face in the faces of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mom in kindergarten. I love this photo so much i had a stencil made of it. 

I think this was a graduation picture. 

Mom at 24.
