to tame a fox [Feb. 22nd, 2011|12:41 pm]
[Music |DeVotchKa - Somethin' Stupid]


Nik is relaxing in his living room with one of his two very furry and fat Maine Coon Cats. The other cat is opposite him, curled up and asleep in a blue raggedy armchair. Sun is seeping in the window and making for a very serene environment.


cat # 2 SPRINGS from armchair (faster than ever witnessed by human eyes) and attacks invisible flying MONSTER!

... cat realizes the monster isn't just invisible... it actually doesn't exist.

... cat promptly stares at Nik, apparently blaming him for this hallucination.

.. cat promptly falls back asleep.


A beautiful brown-eyed brunette brought this canvas over for us to paint on a couple weeks ago... and after only an evening's worth of painting, we finished this piece. I must say, I'm pretty pleased about it. :)

Going Lunar
(collaboration with Kelly)

Next weekend is the Holland House show... WOOT!

Still NOT sharing pictures of the pieces I'm bringing to the show. I'm saving those until they're on the walls in Wisconsin. :)

I have lots to share but I'm only picking and choosing what to post.

If I were a dinosaur, I'd be a Montessorious Rex.

Cats see creatures in other dimensions. I'm convinced of that.

Fantastic artwork! Where in Wisconsin will your exhibition be?

I think you're onto something there...

Thanks! I'm showing in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It's an amazing little annual event that there are loads of artists, musicians, delicious food and lovely people... all inside a beautiful historic downtown house.

Your cat and my cat should get together. Lately she's been feeling the need to attack invisible flying monsters every time she exits the litter box. Maybe she thinks the resulting explosion of kitty litter makes her look twice as fierce?

Gorgeous painting!
