TMTA-Best Morning Start

Think Monday Think ATC challenged to depict the best start to my mornings.  Hands down it is walking my dog.  I did this scribble drawing a few years back and repurposed it here today.  It was a much larger drawing that I shrunk down, added the face, and detailed the edges with marker and gel pen.  Unfortunately, today it is pouring out and our walk was very short….we both missed our friends and fun at the dog run 😦

Thanks for looking and a good morning to all!

I interrupt this art blog….

Can’t help being a proud Mama….Barley found his twin on Sunday and played all morning her….Billy a 10 year old jack mix too….The wonderful pictures from that day are compliments of my husband…Barley is the one without a tail.  Baci, another friend, makes a brief appearance as the mostly white dog checking out the play.

Should be working

Oh, I should be working…much to do.  Instead, I played with a bunch of new “toys”–fun new markers from the drugstore that make a little donut shape, a paint dabber, new stamp (old one too!), “mixatives”, and metal tape…..


I mostly made a mess, and had a great time! And now, of course, it’s lunchtime and the dog needs a walk…Oh which reminds me….the dog has had a name change…the dog formerly known as Batllo is now and forever more BARLEY.  So, work is not getting done.  Nope, not at all.  Can’t even get myself to do a challenge! I guess I just want to fly on my own today, no rules, no directions.

New Dog in the House!!

I interrupt this art blog to introduce Batllo (as in Casa Batllo in Barcelona, pronounced  bat Yo). 

Batllo Sunday Sept 6

He is a 3-5 year-old terrier/daschund (?) mix who was rescued from a puppy mill.  We adopted him on Sunday and are in love with him.  He needs lots of calm, quiet, tlc.  He’s very calm in the apartment, spending much time in his crate, but venturing out occassionally.  Outside the traffic is too big and noisy, but we will help him to acclimate.  We he accepts touching and physical care, but is easily overwhelmed by close smushy love, so we let him have his space.  He seems to like other dogs, though we have yet to see his little nubbin’ of a tail wiggle yet….all in good time.  It is so good to have a dog at home again…to walk and care for.  It doesn’t take away the sorrow we have for losing Mimsey, but he fills a new spot we have just for him!
