I do most of my drawings in the evening after I get ready to go to bed. I find it very relaxing after my work day. I never know what I’m drawing until I’m almost done with it.

I like to combine colors that take your mind for a Joyride.

She is so cute

and she is 3 months old; my kitty Mama Gato. She is named after my Mom who passed away this last March. My husband used to call my Mom, Mama Gato. She’d had been sick and would get better until she died.
My kitty was born 4 days before my Mom passed away. I love cats. Mama Gato loves to bite me. She also thinks she is a rat/mouse she climbs up my legs like I’m the cat pole.

We took her to get her shots at 8 weeks old and she weighed 1 lb and 8 oz. She recently went to the vet and she weighed 3 lbs at 3 months. So she is still a kitten and I’m so happy to have her.

She sits near me where ever I am in the house. She is an inside cat. For her sake and ours. I don’t want to her to get fleas, get birds, get lost.

This cat loves to play peek a boo and hide and seek. She makes me laugh while I’m trying to put my make up on.

She’s peeking out from underneath my laptop tray. All the photos were taken with my iphone. She doesn’t really like it and quickly moves. So I have to be fast to get her picture.
I’m glad I have my little black kitty.

I buy

My own photography because I’m my biggest fan now.

(since my Mom died.)
I found my passions; I wear my own jewelry designs, share my photography and my art. My office walls show off both.

Have you put your photography on canvas or metal?

I don’t have any windows in my office so I can’t grow plants so I love photos with flowers.

Have you put your photography on birthday cards for a dear friend? I love doing that too.

Be sure to smile with your favorite people every time you see them and take a photo of the two of you.

Gobble

No I’m saying Gobble Gobble! That turkey would feed us for Thanksgiving, but it’s June.

Mom! go get your camera there is a photo op in the backyard, my husband yelled out to me this morning. I was getting ready for work. My camera had a 50mm lens on it as I’m about to step outside. I run back to switch to my 400mm. The lens caps falls on the ground. I pick it up and place it back in the camera bag.

I run to the sliding glass door. The turkey is still out there. I quietly open the sliding glass door. The turkey hears me.

The turkey knows we have bird food.
