On My Easel...

... I've had this drawn out for some time.  He looks like my little Bubbie.  I kept the piece at the front of the pile, often picking it up, then putting it down. (I say front of the pile because it was a stack, then the stack fell over and now they are all in a row like a library drawer- yes I have work to do!)  Feeling afraid to "ruin" it because I liked the drawing & planned to paint on white, using a built up of lots of thin layers, which is something a little new for me. This is the first layer.

Postcard size, acrylic on paper

I have been having fun doing these little ACEOs when I can get in the studio and paint. Doing a small pieces that I can get through in a short amount of time. Using vintage fabric & acrylics these girls came to life. I call them all "Love is Like a Pretty Blanket". I am debating on whether to sew on them as well and just might try it while I have all of my sewing machines out.

Heartbroken... heart has a great big hole in it.  I lost my little Reeda, my sweet baby girl on Saturday.  I was so lucky to have had her for almost 8 years. She loved me & rarely left my side. I loved her.  She was a handful at first because she was abused before coming to our home, had to fight for her food, and was just used to make puppies.  It's so quiet in the house without her because she demanded your attention.  My little angel dog Roadie is missing her. He knows what's going on.  He has been savoring his treats because he no longer has to gobble them down so she won't take them.
