We're all back from FanX. The cats are happy to have us home. The dogs are glad to be home, although they certainly love the place where they get boarded. Merlin started whining with excitement as we got within a couple blocks of the house and he recognized the neighborhood. Right now he's curled up … Continue reading Everyone’s home
After my post earlier this week about the seasons changing way too soon, I thought I'd lighten it up a bit by bringing in some spring. The seasons do not rule my painting! I've had many people admire my purple trees. I don't know why I like to paint them; they are just fun. So, … Continue reading Purple trees
