Just when the catipillar thought life was over it became a butterfly~proverb

My butterfly~ That proverb is sort of my mantra these days.  I have it posted on my refrigerator as a daily reminder to never lose hope for Sam and his future.   He has been through so much lately and yet  doing better than I ever expected.

I'm Still Here~

Between commissions, vacation time and minor illnesses I haven't been around much.  I am so anxious and excited about my new work and the direction I am heading in.  I also have some licensing options to consider as well.  For now I will leave you with my art and quote of the day.  I usually try to post one a day on my Facebook.  Thanks for stopping by.  Catherine

“Who looks outside, dreams… who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung

This is one of my favorite pieces.  I named it "Summer Plans"  but I think this quote fits as well.  Leo seems to be sneezing a lot today. Although it's cute to hear a little kitty sneeze, I hope he isn't sick.  I recently bought a different cat food and perhaps it isn't agreeing with him.  Hope your summer is going well. I will be posting some new painting soon.  Thanks for looking.  Catherine

I read the news today oh, boy About a lucky man who made the grade. The Beatles

We have been so fortunate (so far) this summer with the weather. I know the gross/hair frizzy humidity is coming but can't really complain. My studio is very cool despite all the light. I've been wrapped up in a rather large commission these days and will be for some time now. As you know, I love pairing my art with inspirational quotes and from songs I love. Many of my paintings are actually inspired by these quotes. Most of these paintings have sold but are available as fine art prints. Thanks for looking! Catherine

Taking a Break ~Even from something you love to do!

Seems like time is speeding up these days.  Sam is back to school after a very pleasantly surprising week off.  I can still see his crooked smile when I close my eyes.  (Smiles don't come easy for Sam:)
I am back in my studio today.  As much as I missed my work these past 10 days,  I realize how important it is to step back and take a break. (Even from something you love!) I am recharged and so full of inspiration once again.  Right now I am working on a  commission piece that is coming along quite nicely.   I will not be posting any new work for a few weeks but I also have a lot exciting changes that will be happening to my etsy shop soon.  Thanks for stopping by.
