Dogs in the rearview cause they want to come with you…..or making sure you don’t come back.

Not sure which of these two I like the best:

Beavers were here and that excites me.  For some reason beavers fascinate me and this is my best find EVER. The shavings are still fresh and they created a beautiful circle around this cottonwood.  And check out the bite marks they have in the wood above the cut.  So very cool in my book

I’ve been neglecting my blog, my art, my exercise too.  I just cannot fit it all in.  How do people who work 30- to 40 or more hours every single week get anything done’?

I have been one busy Admin Girl, but it’s time to paint. If I can find my desk under the clutter before I lose interest again.  Wish me painting.

peace n abundance,

New Mexico can be so magical and sweet.

I thought this perfect for Friday Finds out of Kim Klassen’s blog.

Some of you may remember a post I did, last fall I think, of this White Mare.  I call her my El Salto Pony, from the big gorgeous mountain that she lives under.  If not here is the link to check her out in her autumn finery.

I am so blessed to have all I have in my life. I appreciate each and everyone of you who comes and visits,  even if just for a moment in your day.  I hope you say hello.

Peace n Abundance,

Two Yupo watercolours and our coyote

February 10, 2013

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"

“July”

"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,

CheyAnne
