IF's Focused

Prof. Finklestein and his staff of excellent scientist were completely and utterly
blown away at Abby's focused and concentration. Before they knew anything
Abby was levitating above them and playing around with Einstein's theory!!
She was very focused.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Nessa's World( Watercolor Wednesdays)

My childhood was filled with Golden and Peterpan records on a portable record player. I could never find the little yellow inserts that went into the 45's so they wobbled while they played. I loved going to Toyland!!! All I had to do was say the magic words. Haluna, Haluna, fe fi fo to the land of toys I wish to go. And then the man on the record would ask, " Are you there yet???" he he he he! Pixie sticks and other treats, the circus and clowns and fairies! Hours of jacks with my sister Coy and paddle ball contest! Yes and hours of Star Trek, Lost in Space, Ultra Man, Petticoat Junction, The Addams Family, The Monsters, I Love Lucy, Hazel, Top Cat, Bugs Bunny
Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse, and the list goes on.
Gee those were the days!
Have a good one!

Drum City (sneak Peak)

Hello All,
I have some good news to tell you about. About 6 months ago I had the great pleasure of
illustrating a wonderful children's book written by a talented writer Thea Guidone.
This is Thea's first children's book called, " Drum City". Random House is the
publisher and the book is due out in stores on June 8, 2010. We are both so happy
and proud of how the books has come out. We just got copies of it a couple of
weeks ago. There is some tweaking that has to take place as far as color, but it's beautiful
just the same. I had such fun illustrating this book!!!! It's not all the time you get to
do what you want to do, but the art directors were so willing and so wonderful to
work with they made it easy to be creative and for this I am grateful. I can't wait for you
all to see it! It's just a fun book. I have another surprise coming in a couple of days.
I can't wait to share it with you. I'll keep you posted about "Drum City".

Happy Birthday Mechelle

About ten years ago my father remarried after the death of my mom. She was only 56 years
young and died of colon cancer. My sister Coy and I wanted our dad to remarry as soon as possible. 6 months after mom's passing dad announced that we wanted to marry
Ms. Earlene Busby. I am proud to say that they have been married for 10 years now and
they love each other very, very much. She has become Mom , mom-in-law, and Grandmamma,
to our families. We didn't just get a mom, but also 3 sisters and 2 brothers.
Which are never ever referred to as step anything. he he he he!!!
It's amazing how we just took to each others.

It's like we have been family all along. It doesn't happen like that for many people, but
somehow and someway this just worked. I am now blessed to have 4 sisters that I LOVE and
Admire and Adore! Each with her own personality and story. This is a collage work that
I did for my beautiful baby sister Mechelle for her 40th birthday. She is in love with it!
Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister Chelle!

The Magic of Count De Mezzo

He didn't want to be prince or president. He didn't even want to be a Count.
He just wanted to share his joy of telling stories with wonderful puppetry.
Count De Mezzo kept the children entertained for hours.

but more is on the way! Have a great week everyone

Man Up and Press On

Rodney Pinkney would let absolutely nothing get in his way of asking Miss Tasha Jenkins
to the school dance. Not even the huge volcano of a pimple sitting right by his nose!
Moral of the story. In 2010 let absolutely nothing and nobody keep you from doing
what is in your heart to do. Man up and go for it!!!!! I'm cheering you on he he he he!!
