I was trying to capture the personality of my dog, Cleo. She has a real poker face, as many shibas do. She also acts like a princess, so delicate and demanding of what she wants.
Cleo reminds me of a deer, or a horse. Her upright position, so proper, with big eyelashes. She knows she is special. This is a horse I drew while thinking of beautiful, "proper" looking animals.

It was fun to gocco, then paint and build a cutstom frame for this piece for Art Unleashed. I plan to go this year and buy some art! The best thing about it is that the proceeds go to the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City.
The last two are more detail on the "raging storm" painting. I am trying to spend more time on each piece and give each the attention it needs.

Jon got me a Gocco printer for my birthday...and I am now just using it for an "Art Unleashed" project. I thought you couldn't get the Gocco printers anymore, but I guess you can. Artists and Craftmen Supply in KC carries them. I really like it!
I need to get more ink though. The kit only came with black. I want to use four colors - yellow, blue and orange with my black line-work on the next printing session. I will also need more screens...and more paper because you have to print like 50 for each screen and I already used up my paper!
I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors for the color areas for this print. I like the yellow dots...that bright paint is so much fun to use!

I am really thrilled the sun has been shining so much lately!
I have also been having malt-o-meal for my breakfasts...here is a drawing of the box. This design has been around a while.
And here is Helga and Leo - they haven't seen each other in a while - you know, because of all the deforestation, they were separated months ago. They plan on forming a new neighborhood association to prevent any further disruptions to the forest. Maybe you could help them?
