Hopefully my sis in law will let me use her computer to link to PPF and maybe Sweet Saturdays agian. So.... everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'll see ya when I get back. Here's a little ACEO I did this week called "Pumpkin Patch Pow Wow".

Sweet Saturdays Squirrel !

I've been wanting to join in Diana's Sweet Saturdays blog hop for a while and finally gittin around to it! Her's a pic I took at Bodie National Park a couple years ago of a cute little buddy under an old shack. The Bodie ghost town is a photographer's paradise! Hopefully I can share more pics in the up coming Saturdays but we'll see. I'm only home today because I have a migraine, ugh, back to bed now...Deb

Paint Party Friday Iguana !

Hi everyone! Yep yep we're back to the lizzies! I must confess I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to work on the blue tailed skink. He's waiting patiently " on the easel" so to say ,even though I'm not using an easel. I guess you could say he's in hibernation, probably like the real model right now, burrrrrrrr! So instead I thought I'd share an older painting and photo I took. I painted this watercolor about 20 years ago of my pet iguana named "CJ". I had three iguanas then. They had the run of the apartment. I even came home one time to find all three up in our Christmas tree!!! When we moved into a new house far away, I gave them all up to new homes. This little guy was hurt because he had fallen off the TV and sprained his back. That's when I found out he was really a she and during the recovery she layed 9 eggs , which unfortunately never hatched, boo hoo!!!!!!!! Anyways, she ended up going to a great reptile lover's home where she had a huge shed outside and inside to live in that the guy had made for his other lizzy buddies. Have a great weekend and happy PPF everyone!
