finches & raindrops

Sunday, May 15, 2011

red dog, yellow dog get a black cat - Emma Jane Louise (or Em), Jake & teeny, tiny baby Bleet

Finches & raindrops ... sounds to wake up to
& a snoring, sleepy, shaggy, black dog
a knot of tangled covers & kitten love (Virgil & Oliver)
coffee in bed with my morning pages
& breakfast out* with friends - hooray !

*at Whirlygigs Cafe

(fabulous & fantastic, internationally renowned, design/illustration/creative periodical) is having another of their "would you like to be participate in our pages" call for submissions. Last issue #9 Ande Cook (aka Chickory) and I shared the same page (floral photos) - hooray !! It's all a part of my ongoing quest for Fame + Fortune to submit/participate in as many of these as I can. It's treu F & F I do want you. And also to help in the building of my, any moment now trust me, bustling + booming Creative Empire. Today's deadline is pet portraits (and they can't be photos - sad face) no worries 'cause I have plus de little illustrations. The above red dog yellow dog get a black cat gouache painting is an all time favourite of mine.

Happy Sunday !!

  5. Hey !! merci mon amis for the lovely Sunday comments. I do feel like I'm having a wee creative surge (and a big ol' hallelujah for that).

    I've signed up for a new Get Your Paint On Summer session which begins June 13th - highly recommend it to any & all experienced or beginner painters.

    Moose I'll post that page from UpperCase tomorrow ... um, my guess is the 10 best things about very well behaved & extremely handsome golden retrievers ???

    Chick the floral of mine that they picked wouldn't have been my favourite either so - ya never know.
