My Child Is A Grass Hugger

My Child Is A Grass Hugger

Tree hugging runs in the family. It’s in our blood, but grass hugging? That’s a whole new thing for the latest generation. Tiny-Small is a grass hugger. Literally. I think it’s because she rarely sees grass. To her it’s a plant on the verge of extinction and when she finally gets her feet in it and her arms around it she is pretty happy.

I’ll Be In The Shower When You Get Here

I’ll Be In The Shower When You Get Here

If I invite you over, I’ll be in the shower when you get here. It’s some kind of universal law.

Yucca Sunset Painting: Alcohol ink painting on a 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 ceramic tile.

This Yucca Sunset painting was fun to paint. I need to scan it into the computer to get a better photograph of it. Using the camera was difficult because it is super shiny and the reflections were impossible to conquer.

Goodbye, Winter - Landscapes Day 10

Goodbye, Winter – Landscapes Day 10

Goodbye, Winter! One last snow scene before I say goodbye to winter completely and dive into Spring. I am ready and I know you are too. We’ve had warmer weather for a while now so I can’t complain too much, at least as not as much as my friends back East can. They probably wanted to say, “Goodbye, Winter!” a few weeks ago.
