Lucky Me!

I won Susan Faye's blog giveaway for a whimsical watercolor portrait of my little Pumpkin cat! Can you believe how lucky I am. Click on this link to see pictures of the work in progress on her blog and her adorable kitty, Buttonwillow! And here is the finished painting, ta da! I love how she captured his markings.


Be sure to visit Susan's Etsy Shop if you love cats and nature. She is an amazing watercolor artist!
Check out this gorgeous sparrow painting.

I have been working on a few things in my own studio. Since being accepted as an official Trail of the Painted Ponies artist, I've been trying to create a few more original ponies. Lately I've been obsessed with the live cam of a barn owl and her owlets (click here - caution, it's addicting) so I thought a barn owl pony would be fun. Here is the finished piece, now on Ebay. I'll have a hard time parting with this one.

Your ponies are great. I grew up out west and they remind me of happy days. This is my first visit but I would love to come back.
