I don't know exactly why; but, the idea of animals in mary-janes appeals to me. Here, Gladys, who is a circus chicken, is stepping out in her brand new, shiny mary-janes and she just feels that she has the world on a string. There will be more to come about Gladys and her special talents. Sometimes silly is good ; )

I have begun a new challenge, hoping to develop my drawing skills. The amazingly talented Alicia Padron has been posting "Daily Doodles" for a while now. She has invited any one who wants to, to join her in this fun exercise, (there's the button, right over there to the right & down a bit). My first offering is one of those random pictures that popped into my head one morning while I was drinking my coffee and I finally got it down on paper. I know there are some problems with it, but I think I can make something out of it ; ).

Remember when it wasn't your party?
I have finally managed to post another illustration----by the skin of my teeth! I am still trying to grasp this medium. I'm sure I'm not spending enough time with it, but any pointers you can send along would be greatly appreciated ; ). I am printing them out and tucking them away to pull out any time I can sneak up here and paint. Thanks so much for those of you who have emailed me with tips and for all the kind comments---especially on my "Sailing" post.
