sylvester


Sylvester, available on eBay
I used to do a lot of these cat" portraits". They are fun to do. Every cat is different. I have a customer in Switzerland who owns a lot of them and I often think how cool it would be to see how they have been displayed. Maybe on the wall up along a staircase.? Maybe in a grouping over the fireplace? Maybe they were all gifts and have gone to new homes.

I might have posted this before in fact I think I have but here it is again, one of my paintings framed and up in someone's home. Strangely enough, her cat Molly could be Monty's twin.
Here is another picture framed and up in Kansas City. I love seeing where my work ends up:)

So it is day 62 my Wii fit. Imagine that! Christmas was 62 days ago. I do a body check each morning. Basically it is a weigh in and so much more accurate than my scale. It also graphs things so I can see my weight flowing across the screen in living colour:) Keeps me on the straight and narrow. I am still enjoying it and do manage to do some exercising on it most days.

Oh and I made the most INCREDIBLE soup on the weekend. You know that I am a soup girl.
Fennel and blue cheese soup. So easy!!!! Here we go, Saute 1 big onion and some garlic in oil till golden. Toss in 1 chopped potato and 1 whole fennel bulb chopped and aprox. 4 cups broth . Cook till soft, puree, add 4 oz blue cheese and stir. It was delicious. Really:)

Don't forget. Today is pancake day:) Shrove Tuesday.

Hi Shelagh. I just don't know what is going on with blogger at the moment. Some of my recent posts show up on other blog rolls, and some don't. I am down on traffic as a result. Hmmmn. Not being a technical wizard, I dn't know how to remedy this. I removed widgets and everything. No change.

Soup sounds divine! It must be so nice to see your work up in places. I'm not just saying this, but as soon as I get a house I am buying some of your work and then I can blog about where it is :-) I look forward to that day!

The soup sounds divine, and I too always wonder where my map jewelry goes and what stories it spurs.

I didn't know you were a soup girl...I like it too.

How wonderful to see your paintings in someone's home all framed and hanging...

I'm having pancakes tonight! And, I didn't even know...

I enjoy both fennel and blue cheese so I will have to keep this soup in mind to try! I am a soup girl too, Shelagh!

I will take photos of the prints I bought from you and gave to my daughter next time I visit her co-op. She loves them!
