Two Yupo watercolours and our coyote

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

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 image is taken propped up on the window,

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"

“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'

‘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,

    Do you suppose she came right toward you because she remembered that ham? (It was ham, wasn’t it?) What an absolute pleasure, to have such beautiful animals around.

    I’m not one who should be critiquing painting! but I will say I think the short are fine. They look as though the weight of the kitty is pulling them tight. It’s such a lovely image. Of course, I think all things “cat” are wonderful.

    the intensity of color and all the brushwork is always fun with Yupo paper. And of course it’s very forgiving! I particularly like the bronze horse in the foreground, it could probably be a painting on it’s own! nice 🙂

    Well, thank you so much for that Mary. I never thought of that color as bronze, but I like it. I did do a costilla pony painting that is kinda similar and I do love it so. Thanks for the visit and comment too.

I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
