It was cold last night and I wished I had a few more cats to keep me warm. I just like this little girl have several blankets on my bed and most of the time my beautiful cat Sadie joins me. I survive much better when the weather is warm. I know 47 degrees is not cold for many of you, but for me it IS COLD. The sun is out today and I feel it is warming a bit, none to soon for me. The kids are out of time for the week and the compound as we call it is quiet. It always seems funny to have the lack of children around and not to hear the daily comings and goings of many people. I think I will paint something , do some paperwork and just be. Always to the market as my Mother is not able to make a meal needs something for dinner. I have a cold so as unusual as it is for me I'm not hungry. I like to make a meal that will last for a few days so lunches and a dinners are taken care of. So I will put on my thinking cap and try to come up with something to cook. I will be working on Wednesday and Thursday at the art gallery so lunch for those days is needed. The month that I will have my paintings in the gallery is almost over. I haven't sold any paintings but I think this experience has showed me that my heart lies in illustrating. When I work on canvas it takes way too long. And I enjoy the smaller size of most of my artwork. Exhibiting my work as been a good experience and I have met many interesting artist and seen some fabulous work. We are all so different with one thing in common the need to express ourselves through art. I enjoy when someone smiles when they see my work and tell me it makes me happy. That is a small thing but like your health it helps make the world seem a little better. So I will keep trying to make someone smile....I can be really funny......so can the world...sometimes to just have to look very carefully and have a margarita in hand!
