This week we went to Zoo Lights. It was beautiful , cold and fun. The Penguin house was open. All was perfect until Rose lost the little puppy she was holding in her hand. OH, BOY. We have not been through that with her yet. Daddy went through the park looking with no luck. Later that night I told her we could call the spirit of the puppy to come stay with us. Long story short, she went with it and was very happy playing with her imaginary ghost puppy the rest of the night. She said she will never take her ghost puppy anywhere so as not to loose him. ;)
Then the next day was a field trip for Anthony's class to the Transportation Museum. What can I say, I love trains. Maybe it is because my Grandpa worked as a Train Master for the railroad all his life 12 hour days, 7 days a week. They hold a special place in my heart.
This a pic of me that Rose took.
Here is a shot of my messy kitchen. On the kitchen table are pendants that I am working on and some prints mounted on wood I plan to get up on Etsy soon.

I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving. I kicked mine off by staying up all night trying to keep Nino comfortable until the doctor's office opened. He had a double ear infection . He just keeps getting hit over and over. My poor little boy. Luckily it was Tuesday night instead of Wednesday night. He was much better as soon as he had a second dose of meds. All was well by Thanksgiving Day.
I was able to finish this painting today. It is a BIG16X20. Up on ebay now.
I have so many little projects I would like to get done around the house. We are slowly tearing our carpet out and replacing it with hardwood. I am working on the stairs to the basement now. Is this how it looks at your house when you try to get something done? Why do kitties LOVE to be right in the middle of things? :)

"The Race" is up on ebay now. I love this one. It is a 5x7 and looks so pretty in a frame.
The next one is a BIG 16x20. It is so hard to get a good picture of paintings this size because I can't use my scanner. Also, it rained all week so no good days to take a picture outside. I do love the cold feel I get from this one. I did little snow flakes all over the scene. Burrr.

Don't you just love taking walks in the snow on a moonlit night? How about picking out a Christmas tree on a moonlit night?
I have Christmas trees on the mind lately. It is that time of year. In fact, we have already spotted some up in nearby homes!
I wanted to do a real tree this year, but I am not sure . We have an artificial one that I have never really been happy with. Maybe if I spend the money I would have spent on a tree on a bunch of new lights, I might like it more. Hmmmm. There really is nothing like a real one though.

I wanted to share with you a video from All Souls Day Mass. It is impossible to capture how beautiful it is. Every year they light candles on all the graves of a cemetery less than a mile from my house. I tried to sneak a video, but I was right by the generator that was really loud, but you can get the idea. This is not the whole picture. The candles go on and on, but I didn't want to interrupt mass. /:)

Can you guess what Rose and I were for Halloween??
If you guessed Coraline Jones and the 'other mother' you guessed right!

I have upgraded most of my prints to a semi-gloss full 8X10 size. They look really nice. Check them out.
Also, I had a request for an 11X14 size and found that this came out very crisp and clear.
So I am offering that size too.
That has been my week so far. Now I will go back to painting. I have a few new ones started that I would love to get finished.

I have been experimenting with my paintings this week. Trying some new things and as you can see, my girls grew a little taller this week. I miss the movement I had with my taller girls so I am playing with that a little. I have another 16X20 that is not quite finished yet, but it is a landscape with my taller girls on it. I will show it soon.
I also added worldwide shipping to my ebay.
This one is up on ebay now.
Have a great Friday!

Here is Nino with one of the most real looking pirates in the
