Becky Blue Bonnet Commission Piece:)

Oh I so loved doing this commission piece for Nancy! Her sweet white Scottie dog, Becky Blue Bonnet! What a sweet face she has! Every now and again I get the privilege of creating a piece of artwork of someones beloved critter. Truly it is one of the joys of creating artwork.

So here she is..Becky Blue Bonnet:)
Hugs all, Sarah

Springy stuff....and treats....

(You can find this little piece in my Etsy shop!)
We have had very little winter here in North Idaho...very little at all. Which kinda messes with my head really. I love a good snowy winter. I know you think I am crazy..but here is why. When the snow covers the ground I can knit and draw and cozy up in my little cottage. I don't have garden guilt..none at all. But as soon as it warms up and the little bees above start to float about, I have a need to get outside and start playing in the dirt. But...the problem is this, I have school work to do, artwork pieces to complete and knitting to do. Add to that home schooling the youngest two and all the normal household stuff..and well you get the picture. It all results in a neglected garden and garden guilt on my part. Sigh...I need another month of the cold, white stuff please! Call me crazy!

In the mean time I will eat cake! ;) Carrot cake please and a really wonderful butter pecan latte. Double shot, skinny, light on the foam. Would you like one too??
Happy Monday all, Sarah

Cozy Dragons and Unicorns..new work...:)

I really wanted to get them outside and draw them in the snow..but they were not having anything to do with the white stuff. They are very happy to hang out in the house. Curled up and cozy dozing by the fire. It was a fun little piece to do, an exercise in depth and perspective. Click on the picture to see all the details. I will have this one up in my Etsy shop later today:)

Here is the one I am working on today. The ink work is complete and I am about to put color to the page..always the scary part!! This piece will be donated to an auction for our local elementary school. Although we are now home schooling...we love Sorenesen and I am more than happy to add a little treat to the mix! This one is similar to "A Good Ride"..cause I had so much fun with that one..I thought a sweet little unicorn would be fun to do.

Otherwise..life is a bit crazy. Trying to keep up with my classes, finishing taxes, home schooling, artwork..and life in general..has me hoping! But I did do something amazing today! My daughter Kate gave me a gift certificate to  Earthly Beauty for Christmas. A full facial which included hand and feet massage and a full facial. OMG..am soooooo relaxed! Was heaven..truly was. Thank ya sweetie! So for today..I am a relaxed Mama! I am thinkin' I need to do this again..every month! ;)
Happy Saturday all, Sarah
