The O'Leary twins always looked forward to St. Patrick's Day!!!
They got to eat all the cabbage and corn beef they wanted
which gave them the gassy lift they needed to taste the rainbow.
It's raining Shamrocks and Skittles Yall!

Alas our beloved Renee is finally at rest. Out of that pain
wreaked body and now at peace. I will always remember her
as being totally talented and told it as she saw it! I pray that God
will be bring healing to her family and friends and give us all
peace where she is concerned. I believe Renee is in a wonderful
new home and wouldn't returned if we all begged her too.
It's way to peaceful and beautiful. Rest in peace darling.

These are things that my childhood was made of.
Long games of Jacks and Pixie sticks. Hours of trying to fix
my paddle and ball. There was no time to be a couch potato
because we played hide and seek for hours on end. Stick
and Kick ball until the street lights came on. My daughter
and her cousins want to sit around and play video games all
day long on Saturdays, but they are in for some good ol'
Old school running around until your butt falls off kind of fun!
Yeah I know they'll hate me for the moment, but they will thank
me later the little Stinkers. Have a good one everyone!!

Well, thanks to all you fabulous dancers the snow that was promised
never ever came. Only a little rain and I actually welcomed it.
Your dancing feet worked like magic! he he he he! Thanks family.
This is a collage test piece that I am working on for a possible
project. I will be doing a collage style book in a couple
weeks and I just needed to get my feet wet. All my books
have been digital up until now. I adore being able to work
digitally and traditionally as an illustrator, but collage will always be
my first love.
It's fresh and free and organic. I plan to take this week off
from working on projects and do some free collage work.
I'll let you know how it all comes out. Have a great week family!
