Day 3

Day 3 of the Bella occupation and I have learned a few things...
1. Underwear, bras, socks, pants, etc. left on the floor and unattended are subject to random dispersal throughout the house.
2. Any exposed appendages from under the covers are subject to licking, chewing, or pouncing.
3. Cat tails are officially chew toys.
4. Dog tails are officially cat toys.
5. Anything within Bella's reach is, in fact, Bella's.
6. A SpotBot can become your best friend.
7. Come, sit, down, no no, drop that, what are you eating?, and all other commands are subject to being ignored completely.
What have we gotten into?

New Family Member

I have not posted in a while because of the holidays, shows, and our newest distraction...Bella. She is a 6 month old Bernese Mountain Dog and has stolen our hearts. I can't wait to watch her grow into a big beautiful girl.

What a pretty face!
Dakota, our five year old corgi, is still skeptical.
 Zoe, our seven year old corgi, is not intimidated by her size...yet.
 She may be big in stature, but she is short on stamina.

Horse Crazy

Done. Now I am off to Easton, MD for the Waterfowl Festival. If you are in the area, stop by the armory building and say hello.

Early Snow

Done. It is not cropped like I would like, but I always paint some "bleed" for the scan. I really like the way this one turned out, which is saying a lot, because I am my worst critic.

I titled this one "Early Snow" because I did not want to paint this gorgeous horse fuzzy like you see them in winter. He is my dream of a black stallion and has the most beautiful face. I hope you like it.

Horse Crazy WIP

I was infected with the "horse bug" at a very early age. Once it hits you, it is hard to shake. I am now 47 years old and I am still hopelessly lost in my horse obsession. I remember as a kid,  laying on my horse's back, book propped on his butt, my feet hooked over his neck as he grazed, for a long summer afternoon of bliss. This painting is dedicated to my childhood and all those kids who were like I was.

I am in overdrive at this point, getting ready for a show next week, finishing up my 2014 calendar, and trying my best to keep my head on straight. I will add photos of this as I can.
Tuesday, end of the day
