Well, I have another dragon in the works...I didn't get much time to work on it today. Infact the other side of this doesn't have an eye yet! It's coming along slowly and it won't be long until it starts to look like something. I can't help to think it will be a sad something.

Day at home with Paint and Clay...

I just finished this...not everyone's heart is "pink and squishy", some of us feel differently about our hearts. When I was 15 and 16 my heart was "pink and squishy"...I'm...older now!

Many, Many Moons ago...

I have a dilemma. I bought a "video 2 PC conversion thingy!" It's from a company called ION, I can't seem to get my computer to find the driver in the hardware that came with the "Thingy"! Years ago I led a more abstract life then I do now (I didn't think that was possible), a nocturnal life...My husband needed a bass player in his band so being the camealian that I am, I solved his problem and became one. I did the same thing when he needed a second barber too, but that's another story, I digress...We played music a lot, 5nights a week for 20 years. In the interim, remember when video cameras first came out? We got a camera, then Public Access programing came on TV. So we took lessons on camera work, editing, etc. We then began producing our own TV show from the night club in which we played. We had our band, we had local musicians as guess stars, we had comedy, good music and screw-ups. I have it all on many, many tapes of our shows which we called "County sounds of Tucson" No one really cares or remembers but I thought my four grand children might get a giggle out of it when they are old enough, seems a real shame to lose it! Plus my husband (their grandfather)" passed on and it's nice to hear him play his guitar again. The point to all this is I wondered if any one might know how to get the PC to recognize the driver so I can put the videos in my PC and down load them eventually to DVD? This "thingy" I bought is new, it looks like a VCR, connects with a USB cable to my PC. But I can't get past the beginning! If you know anything please yell in my direction, I would be grateful. The photos are laughable material from another "Time And Place!"

A painting I did of Ayla from the movie "Clan Of The Cave Bear", which came from the Book of course! It's done in acrylics. And Daryl Hannah played Ayla!

This is what happens on a slow day at work.

I made some new stuff for my etsy store. Here are a couple new pendants Serpent Tiger Eye Pendant, and the ever popular..."Keep An Eye On Your Heart Pendant!(with matching post earrings)"

Caught in the act!

Here's an interesting picture of one of my customers coming in the back door of my shop just as I snapped a pic of my almost finished dragon. He was surprised and blinded all in one!

How about that Pony...

I didn't realize it at the time, but look at that pony...isn't that the craziest thing? It looks like a stuffed animal. It was real I remember...a man came to the door and asked my Mom if she wanted a picture of her daughter on the pony for a small fee! And there we are. If I could find the pictures, all the woman in our family have the pony pic syndrome, starting with my mother! I had to share this picture too because... I ran out of dragons!

A top coat of varnish is all that's left...

This dragon is probably getting to be old news but I have only to put a coat of varnish and he will be done!

Getting closer...

Now the tiny details, I'm always anxouis at this point to finish yet it's bitter sweet like saying goodbye to an old friend. I have two new dragons to begin so I have to make myself finish this one. I love the colors on this one. They weren't planned it just felt right!

The on going dragon painting saga!

More paint today, even more tomorrow.

Time for creativity!

Have you ever had a couple days where you knew you had to be somewhere at certain times...or things must really get done at home? Well, that's what I've been doing and I couldn't get started on any art because of it. But I'm feeling very creative and Something will get accomplished this week! This is my creative area at's not too big but this evening I will be busy. Also there are a couple pictures of my space(not "My Space") in the back of my shop, that too will get a work out this week! After all I have a dragon to finish and I have a commissioned dragon begun!
On another note, I watched "Castle" last night, I have been starving from "Mal-nutition" since "Firefly" ended. Last night he was wearing his "brown coat" and he was wise-crackin'. I sure missed him. My daughter called and said, "It's like Firefly on Earth that was"... I said, "That's fine with me", I am now "Mal-adjusted" and "Mal-contented"! They had me at the "Brown Coat"!!!
