New Birdie Artwork


Just posted some new Birdie artwork today. "Birdies on a branch." Perfect for sweet pastel bedrooms. This is the second set I've done where the painting extends to another canvas (or 3 canvases--my cars & trucks set) (I know there is a name for it.. I just can't remember it!). Anyhow, I added another three-print set to coordinate with this one too. I just love painting birdies! Ok... it's time to paint some new boy's art!

What a sad day in Virginia and around America. Once again, our Country has been shaken with tragedy. My heart goes out to all those parents, and all those who lost their friends ... and went thru that ordeal. Unbelievable! My son is just ending his first year in college (so it hits home even more so). It just tears me up thinking of the horror that went on at that campus, and the thought of losing your child like that. It really makes you think about all the petty stuff you worry about it... how meaningless it really is! Wish I could keep things in perspective like that daily!

Hope you have a great week.... I think most kids are out of school this week for Spring Break. I look forward to getting an extra hour of sleep each morning, aren't you?!

I had an MRI done the other week and it turns out my sciatica pain is due to a few herniated discs. I will be getting a cortisone injection and continue physical therapy. I am looking forward to relief! You can't sit at a computer for 5 years and not pay for it in your 40s... LOL!

Oh... we had a scare yesterday! Alpo dog food recalled their dog food (in the news yesterday--Saturday) and it turned out the cans we were giving her were the exact numbers on the website that were contaminated! She was having some of the symptoms and so I called the emergency animal hospital asking if I should come in or wait to see my vet on Monday. Of course we had to go in! Turns out she had an infection and had a fever. I'm taking her to my regular vet (& friend) to make sure she is OK. They gave her an IV of fluids and put her on antibiotics. She was really dehydrated.

Email me if you have any questions about the buy one get one... thanks!
