A New Year, New Art and Good-Bye to the Holidays ~

Wow, December is a busy busy month, isn't it?
The holidays are nice, but I admit it...

I am always happy to go from this ~ 

to this ~ 

Although I love the golden Christmas colors we get here in Southern California...

and the peek-a-boo winter roses ~ 

I am looking forward to the confetti colors of my spring garden ~ 

Pinks and corals and oranges and purples ~ 

Did you have a lovely Christmas season and a wonderful New Year's Eve?

I wish upon all the stars that this year will be better than last.
I wish it for you and me both!

I started the new year by tidying up my studio ~ 
(This photo was taken before I finished)

And, I've finished and listed my very first art piece of 2015 ~ 

Meet Valerian and Tartarian, two lovely gals on their way to town. V and T don't get out much, but when they do....they can really set the town on fire! Everyone talks about their playful antics and sneaky ways. Of course, they mean no harm, they just get caught up in the moment. Before long, they are ready for home and a long cat nap.

In order to name these gals, I did research on plants other than catnip that cats are attracted to. 
Valerian and Tartarian Honeysuckle were 2 plants on the list. 

Sooooo....Valerian and Tartarian seemed like perfect names for these two kitty twin sisters

I've also listed 2 of my original character studies as a set ~

This is a unique opportunity to own a set of 2 original character studies (not prints) created specifically for a children's picture book I am working on.

The book is titled: "Jubal's Huckleberry Heart." These are the original character studies I created for the book.

Included in the set is "Jubal's Gift to Lucy" and "Jubal's Huckleberry Heart." I am offering them together, as they truly do belong together. I do not want to separate them. 

All of these original pieces of art can be found in my Etsy Shop.

Here's to a bright, stress free new year filled with art and fairy tales and some good old fashioned happiness!
