acag spring show...a huge success!!

what a fun night this past saturday turned out to be! the angeles crest art guild had their annual spring show at the modest fly gallery with 21 out of 35 members participating. i am happy as can be to say that one of my pieces...a little birdie told me...sold to a lovely judge, who will be putting it up in his chambers!! the show will be going until may 11th if you want to pop by...it really is a wonderful show, chock full of paintings, ceramics, photography and much, much more!

below are many of the members in this amazing group...all working artists with lots to share! i can't tell you how elated and lucky i am to be in this group!!


new on the drawing board...harry the hippo...that won't be the final title of course, but it just seemed to fit him!! it's hard to see here, but i added 3 oxpeckers to his back just to...well...because i can!! he's long too, just shy of 20 inches. i'm going to enter him in the tag gallery show this summer...so exciting cuz last year my elephant drawing got in and sold!

and a bit more progress on coonie!

below is a new drawing on the board...one of our foster kittens from last summer. my daughter named him coonie after a cat we had many years ago...see the original coonie here.  this sweet kitten loved to sit on my drawing board soaking up the warmth from my light, play with our dog josie despite the size difference and was just the friendliest little thing you ever met!! although he had many health issues and eventually had to be quarantined, he is now with an awesome family and healthy as can be!!

 i see a future drawing or two of these sweet 6 week old little bundles of joy from happy strays pet rescue!! our newest foster kittens, ariel and adella (i wanted frida and georgia but lost out!)

 diamond just would not let me take a photo of tucker this weekend! not sure if she just didn't want me to show you all the progress i made on it (cuz that's the part she kept covering up) or if she just wanted some attention...so i finally had to put down my camera, scratched her ears for awhile, then i was able to get a shot or two of my drawing as she happily wandered off to catch some bugs!! (she's better than a venus fly trap to have around!!)
but i'm soooo happy to say that i am almost finished with Tucker...cuz it seems like forever that i started this piece! and there are just SO many other drawings needing to be drawn!!!
