It’s been another long week because I’ve had a new crud this week. I’ll tell you, I Am Sick of being Sick. I am well now and Will Stay that way (I tell myself over and over). I painted this weekend and it feels so good. First I’m finishing my ballerina “Flooded in Light” and will soon take photos and post her for sale. Then I pulled out some Yupo paper I still have and traced a few of my favorite sketches. This one
Under the Milky Way
this was a combo of a few sketches put together and I really had no idea where it would go, but that’s the beauty of Yupo paper. When you don’t like it you can wipe it down and start again. The marker lines stay, but I always kinda like my lines in pieces and always debate whether to erase them or not. How do you handle that?

This other piece is a favortie sketch of mine and after looking at the painting thur being photographed I think I want to start over on this one and even change the initial sketch a bit.
“July in Rachael’s lap”
the whole bottom leg thing bothers me. I need to bring her pink shorts straight out and give her a bit of a calf where the kitten is lying. don’t you think?
And I saw our little female coyote again this week. As I went to take the trash out I saw just her back through the meadow so I snuck back in real quick, grabbed my camera and as quietly as I could got back out side. I made it to the top of the drive way knowing she would cross somewhere close enough to capture her. Little did I know she would walk right towards me
she turned up the drive
right towards me
unfortunately I shake a bit too much with my longer lens.
If you notice her ear is always cocked towards me because she could hear me the whole time and this last time she looked right at me
‘before she faded away’
I can’t add any of these to my Etsy site because they just aren’t clear enough.
This is the reason I am putting out to the universe that I could really use a camera with image stabilization and a higher quality, bigger lens……
Hope your week was happy and healthy and the next one is even better.
peace n abundance,
