Hellooooooo... here I am! I can't believe it's been nearly two months since I've written here. :o That was so long ago~ Thanksgiving, holiday happenings, the kids' and Gil's vacations, Christmas EVERYTHING, company, parties, and even some paintings! It was all very lovely, but it's good to be able to play here again. :) The one sad thing that happened last month was that it was time for Japhy Ryder, our dear friend and little dharma bum, to cross the rainbow bridge. He had a good, long, loved life.

Such a handsome puss! I so enjoyed painting this, and Nimh's portrait a few months ago, that I hope to take commissions~ pet fantasy-style? I may make up flyers to put in the vet's offices, groomers' and kennels around town. Hehee, could be fun! :)
Last month I painted two elf girls with berries for Christmas (I'll put them up on the sidebar to the right) and a cd cover(!) for Mountain Standard Time (link over on the right). These guys have worked so hard to set themselves up for an awesome year, and I'm really excited to create something for and with them. I can't wait to see (and hear) it all done! :)
It's been a beautiful winter with a few (to several) inches of snow every week or two, just enough. Four inches yesterday! Deer have been helping themselves to whatever they can find in the yard.
That buck ate all the seed in both of the bird feeders~ piggie! I don't want to purposely feed them, but I want the birds to eat there, too. What to do?
One last thing, we saw this rainbow corona around the moon last weekend.
Amazing! Wishing you all a blessed new year full of rainbows, day and night~
