Ahoy there friends! you probably thought I sailed off into the sunset, it's been a few weeks since my last post.
Do you ever feel like you have nothing interesting to say even though you may be busy? Seems the longer you wait to post, the harder it is.
It has been so hot and humid the last few days in Ontario. I've had a few days off work, hoping to get caught up on some of my online classes, but it's been difficult due to the heat. I've managed to create a few of my little owl ACEOs though.
Years ago, I used to have over 40 houseplants when I lived in a larger home, but I let them go when I moved into the home I am now in. I guess I got tired of maintaining them. It felt like the right time to start over, so I went to one of my favorite green houses and walked out with a dozen new plants. Check out this photo of their cactus section, it's quite incredible to see in person.
A couple of days ago I went with my friend to see the horses again. I always take my camera along hoping to get some good reference photos, but every other time, something prevented it. Like freezing cold conditions, or a dreary cloudy day, rain, etc...but this time I thought my luck would change. It was super hot and sunny. Everything was going well, until the red battery light on my camera started flashing! At least I got a few photos before it totally died on me.
Here I am giving one of the horses some scritches, lol!
This little guy below is an orphan. He's being hand raised right now. We thought we would go in his pen and play with him a bit. Well, he started getting quite rambunctious, running towards us and bucking, so seeing as we were both in flip flops, we thought we'd better get out of there pretty quickly.
Now art wise, I decided I need to open a second Etsy shop for my illustrations. I haven't done this yet, since I don't have enough art to add to it ....and I need to decide on a name for the new shop.
The shop I have right now has too many different styles of art, that it lacks cohesion. The new one would be my drawings on vintage paper.
Once I get a few more of my illustrations finished, I will show them on my blog. Right now, I'm still working out some details.
Forgive me if this post seems all over the place. That's what happens when you don't blog regularly...I promise to try to do better next time.
thanks for reading!
