A New Week...

Hope everyone had a good Monday! I have to get back on a normal schedule...I've gotten so used to staying up until the wee really makes more sense, though, you know? No matter how much sleep I've gotten the night before, I'm not a morning person ~ creatively, especially. I can do simple chores, water flowers, etc. ~ :^) ~ but paint...nah. The longer I'm up (within reason) the more I seem to get done...I've always been like that. Most of the rest of the world just doesn't work that way, though!

Here are another couple of pictures from the Depot show. I promise not to keep this up too long! But, it really did do wonders for my self esteem to manage to get all these paintings was very nice to see everything framed and in one place...

Above are the two linocuts of Cyrus and Leo that I forgot to photograph before they were framed...

I set up the last of the hydrangeas earlier today, thinking I might give the blog a more "summery" look...Leo just wasn't feeling it, though ~ I couldn't get him to get really close to the typewriter and look up at the same time, like the current banner photo...(that one was just a "happy accident", I think...maybe I should just leave it alone!)...

That's all for tonight...I spent some time setting up a little still-life of some zinnias this afternoon, too ~ I'll show you those tomorrow. :)
Have a great Tuesday, everyone! Where is the summer going??

  1. Wow Anne. Your paintings are fabulous. And those linocuts are incredible. I love Cyrus with his little paws so sweetly tucked together --Jingles sits like that. Makes them seem so sweet and innocent. :) I've been staying up later than usual since it is the summer holiday but I am still usually in bed between 11 pm and midnite (although I made it to 1 am once). I'm not a late night person. Nor am I a morning person. I just got up at 8 am and that is really good for me. A quiet, peaceful start to the day is what I enjoy most of all. I really should be getting some cleaning and organizing done. Guess I should try to start tackling that today. I'd rather blog, crochet, bake. Have a fabulous week. Tammy

  2. I'm the opposite way around to you, I like being up early, but am not good at staying up late.
    Leo looks like he is thinking about getting to work in the last pic!

  3. You are such a talented person!! And those cats are one-of-a-kind adorable! From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie

  4. Your paintings are beautiful! You have so much talent!

  5. Love those big hairy cats. :):) No wonder you call your blog a little fur in the paint, love that. Smiles, Susie

  6. Your paintings are beautiful! You have so much talent!

  7. Beautiful paintings and beautiful Leo:) I'm a night owl too and often stay up into the wee hours. Probably the most creative time of the day for me.

  8. Exquisite! Looks like being a night owl suits you just fine! Happy Tuesday - Tanya

  9. Your artwork is simply amazing! What a pleasure it is to see it displayed!

  10. You are one talented lady, I can't get enough of your blog, writings, painting and especially the cats.
    They are my favorite 'people'


I love your thoughts and comments, and I read each and every one! Sometimes life gets in the way, though, and it takes me a while to respond...Thank you for understanding! ♥...Time is precious, and the time you have taken here is truly appreciated!
