I have been trying to get back to this for months, but there is just too much to do after a move and I don't really have an "art" space to work in yet. But, I stopped over to see what was happening, picked up on the latest prompt ... and I just couldn't resist. I painted the chicken with water color and then went to pic monkey to frame it and, once again couldn't resist playing with it a little ... basically changed the background. Feels good to be back ... can't promise I will make it every week, but I look forward to seeing what all of you have been up to ... lot of changes, I am sure. Feels good though, being amongst friends again ...

StrawberriesOnce again, I cheated ... this is a very busy time for me and I had thought I would probably miss this weeks prompt from Micheal ... but, Strawberries? I am so looking forward to my Mother's Day Strawberries so I just couldn't pass up this opportunity to share. This is strictly a digital rendering with framing in Picmonkey. Wishing all of the Mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day ... you deserve more than a day, but we'll take what we can get, right?

Picket FenceThis is our little rescue, Buffy Boo ... she is a lovable cat with us but we have never been able to achieve a truce between her and our other cats. She was dumped so young that I am quite certain her mother didn't have a chance to teach her kitty manners. She loves going outside, but checks in regularly. I think she is afraid of being dumped again. As for keeping her in with a picket fence ... will never happen :)
I cheated a little with this one. I took a picture of a house with a picket fence, digitized it, drew the kitty on another page and added her in. It was a fun experiment.

QuiltsQuilts can be many things to many people. There is the quilt that Grandma made that holds memories of a wonderful person in your life. There are Friendship Quilts and Baby Quilts where a group of women each make a square then turn them over to a brave sole who will sew them into a
wonderful blanket for the friend or for the new mother. Then there is just the fact that quilting is an art so they are a pallet of colors and ideas generated by an artist ...
The following are a few of the quilts that were on display at the Chicago Botanical Gardens ... feast your eyes. I can't even imagine the hours that were spent creating these wonderful quilts.
