Been a slack year for blogging, as you can tell. :) Here's a quick recap of what I was doing instead of blogging.
I spent a big portion of last year at my daughter's, helping with the rescue animals, of which there are many; at the time, there were 6 pot bellied pigs, 11-21 cats and kittens, two dogs, and an assortment of puppies. I went to animal-sit, so they could do some travelling. It was interesting, and certainly kept me busy! She has since moved to a small farm, where she has been able to take in more pigs and animals in need. Pigs Are People Too The rescue is for pot belly pigs, but she does take in some dogs, cats, and recently a rooster. She may be getting a cow as well. I so admire her for all she does, to try and save as many animals as she can.
I had thought about moving closer to the Atlanta area, as that is where my kids and grandkids are, but for now I am going to stay in Mississippi. So I have been working on the house (finally have gone thru' all the boxes from the move here after Bob passed away), and trying to redo my studio; it just was not working out, as far as convenience goes. I think it's better now, but time will tell.
I got to spend a little time with my parents, once in Sept, 2013, and again in May of this year. I am so fortunate to still have them in my life!
I also got to deal with car trouble, frozen pipes, and a major computer crash, where I lost EVERYTHING....yuck...so many photos, both reference and of my artwork. My grandson is still hoping he can rescue some of it...we shall see.
However, I did keep my hand in at painting, some at my daughter's and some here at the house. Rather than try and present any kind of timeline, I am just going to group most of it, so you can see what I've been up to. I hope you enjoy looking.
Flowers are such beautiful and delicate things, and I enjoy painting and preserving them.
