The culprit

Here is my very large, 28 pound kitty, Sonny. This is the cat my blog is named after. Yes he is the one who spills things, breaks stuff, (this morning he broke a vase!) and just reeks havoc about the house. Yes, I know, he looks all innocent here but don't let him fool you. He's just contemplating his next crime spree. I LOVE him so much though!

Another day In The Life

Yes it was another day, a day to accomplish more creative endeavors. I have another painting started and two to finish up. I usually have more that one going at a time.

I was thinking a lot about artists today while at work and I have come to the conclusion that most just don't have enough confidence in themselves. You see, I work in a stamping/scrapbooking store. Many very artistic people come in daily and I start a conversation with them, they will say to me, "Oh I could never paint anything that well", or "I am just not that creative".

I am a firm believer that everyone can create. The most important thing in creating is just wanting to. The rest will follow. Set a time aside for creating, even if it's only 15 minutes. Doodle while your talking on the phone, sketch while watching tv. You will be surprised what you can create! Especially in these hard financial times. Finding your creative self is more important now than ever.

I still have a little daylight left so I am going back into the studio! Everyone have a great week and break out those pencils, paints and paper!! Get creative!

Welcome to my new art blog! Yippee!!

Well here it is...........My new art blog (insert Ta-Da here).

I will be putting up my paintings and prints here in just a bit. I hope you will find amusement and inspiration in my work.

You see.....I have this cat. He is huge, about 28 lbs., and he just HAS to be in my studio with me when I work. If I have anything out like paint, water cups, yes, even the fish bowls etc, he will spill it.......always.

I am a mixed-media artist from so. california. I know what your saying......"Wow, there are a lot of mixed-media artists out there!" Yes you are right! And I am one more!

Hopefully, you will find my work to be fun, colorful and quirky. And i would like to feature other artists work too! If you want to be a part of my new blog, just e-mail me and let me know! Talk to you all soon!!
