I know this time of the year is rough on everyone, we're supposed to do what the media tells us to do. When it's all said and done, my favorite time is Christmas Night when I can put my feet up and reflect on the craziness...have grand one, what ever it is. P.S. My daughter and I went to see Avatar yesterday...May I say first of all, "Wow, a feast for the eyes, and it harbours my general beliefs about mother earth. Beautiful go see it!"
Soon I will be establishing a web sight. It will be for the art I do for myself! I will as time goes by have a stable full of my dragons. Much like buying a horse, the patron can go through what's available in the stable or hatchery, (if you would) and pick a dragon from what is available. I have a buyer in the New York area, I will (hopefully) be doing some commissioned pieces for them. But otherwise, the dragons will be chosen from the shelves! Thank you, Misty
Something different! My daughter and I went to a show the other night and this is who was there. What a handsome, gracious man. I unfortunately have a new camera quite different from the old one. My daughter had changed the setting and I stupidly didn't check it before taking the "all important photo"! If you know my oldest daughter Dawn, you would know this is she and the delicious Gilles. "sex in the city (movie)" Dancing with the stars, and Brothers and Sisters! When I got ready to take the picture, I said to Gilles, "I'm taking the picture, I'm her mother!" He looked at me and in a silky voice he replied, "I don't believe that!".................(did I mention he is "French"?} Smooooth!
Note to self... Always check your camera settings...before taking the picture!
My baby dragon will be moving to a new home Monday...must get busy and make some new stuff. It's a good feeling to sell things but I'll miss this little guy! I believe he was my only ever...blue eyed dragon!
This is a painting in progress that I am doing for my youngest daughter...sounds like it would be Disney but she's 34 and likes Vampires, this is Bram Stoker's Dracula, Gary Oldman in the character, or better known as Serious Black in some circles! This is a creepy, scary vampire. But...he's not finished tweaking to be done. The hands aren't done yet most of the areas in white are unfinished. Just thought I'd stick it on here for something to do.
Here's a picture of me and my mom, a few years ago. I am going to post a few more photos as I come across them. My thoughts on this subject are a little scatter brained right now I just like this picture. It was taken the day my oldest daughter graduated from Junior high! Misty
I haven't done much this last few weeks. The wind has left my sails as they say. My mother passed away last Tuesday night. I have okay days and very bad days...to be fair the nights are the worst. I can't sleep. My mind won't stop thinking. It's no wonder people are driven to drink or do drugs in difficult times. The strongest thing I have in the house this evening is cough syrup. That's pitiful. I have never been good at creating when I'm sad, I'm sure I'll get better,it's life after all, but that doesnt make it any easier!But it really is a "heart ache" it's so physical. I do love to see what everyone else is up to, you are all so talented. I'm very blessed to have your acquaintances.
Well I have begun painting my antlered dragon. I am still working out the colors, but the client asked for specific ones now just waiting for the dragon to let me know where they go. I primed him this morning and unfortunately...it was slow at the shop today so...I began painting. I think I am going to like him! Beware, WIP!
I'm trying to get this bad boy finished, I have had some things slow me down. It's really hard to finish a commission when you just feel like vegging in front of the TV and eating Ice cream. I am making myself get back to work. So here's what I've been doing!
I have been neglecting my blog of late. I have some family things happening and it's formost right now. I'll get back into the blog a little more in the future. Thank you for stoping by though, even if I hadn't posted anything new or a while!
My wonderful blogging friends I have forgotten my pass word which enables me to leave comments a some of your blogs. I keep getting told my name and pass word don't match. Could anyone tell me how to find out what my pass word is! I changed it due to something but I have forgotten...this is so embarrassing! Thank you, Perplexed

Don't forget..have ye a need for a dragon, I know where to get 'em! Please check out my older posts for more Dragon photos. And follow this link to my Art Gecko Studio blog, right now it has only dragons but as time goes on I will add more of my other art!
I have three blogs, one is for my dragons that I make from air dry clay. The other is for my other art... what ever I am into at the time. And the third is for some of my poetry. A friend of mine (Ros, you know who you are) ispired me to post my writings.
I am a retired musician and a barber. I run a shop called Sweeney's in Tucson, with my youngest daughter, and my oldest daughter is a radiology tech assitant and dance teacher! I played music 5 nights a week for 20 years with my husband and step-son, and now I have time for my art! Hope you enjoy it!
