About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

6.5" x 8" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page

Time to go back to drawing directly on old book pages.  As I started listing my inventory of dictionary drawings I noticed that I had quite a few illustrations falling under the alphabet letter of 'C.'  I decided I really needed to include one of the premiere words for that letter - Cat.

While I drew away I was kept company by our house cat, Wesley.  Wesley and I have something of a love-hate relationship.  I have become Wesley's caregiver over the years since he showed up nearly dead on our doorstep during a storm.  Our three daughters pleaded for us to rescue Wesley and of course, they won.  Our girls are all grown with homes of their own but nobody stepped up to invite Wesley.

Hopefully some cat lovers out there will want to adopt his portrait on a dictionary page.
