Bitsy is a little better! I am happy to report that Bitsy no longer has a fever. She walked around a little today on her own! She is not really eating much, and I have to give her water with an eye dropper. She is still sneezing, but she is a trouper taking her medicine. She goes to the vet Monday and the orthopedic surgeon Wednesday. She is an incredibly good traveler, being used to the car trip between Arlington, MA and Rhode Island so that part is easy. She normally doesn’t like being put in a carrier, but she hasn’t had the spunk to protest.
I am overwhelmed by the response to my cat+art sale blog post for Bitsy. I am thrilled that 7 paintings are going to new homes to help pay Bitsy’s vet bills, and that so many of you called, texted, shared my post (all the way across the Atlantic too), and emailed to check on how Bitsy is. Thank you everyone who bought cards from the card page of my blog as well. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends, collectors, and animal lovers.
Bitsy imitates art! (That’s me in the mirror).
Rainbow over our town.
The home of an incredible artist and friend on the left. Can you guess who?
Thank you again for all your support. Love to you all.
Birds of A Feather Exhibition
So if you are not busy Saturday come on down to Tiverton Four Corners in Tiverton, Rhode Island, to see some great birds in all types of art media, watercolor, pastel, oils, acrylics, wood, Cedian painting, pottery, as well as more that I am sure is there. Kitty Lovell has put this show together and will have a great band playing some wonderful music. You can see her work at http://www.klovell.com/
I have 3 pieces on cradled aqua board that are of chickens of course although I am continuing to do my crazy creature paintings as well.This cockerel is full of golds and bronzes and glows color. My buddy, the rooster, is an 8″ by 8″ ink and watercolor on aqua board and is being framed right now. I love the colors of this chicken and think he would make a great barn yard companion. I am experimenting with ornate borders around my work and an toying, just toying,with making a children’s book of curious creatures. I sure miss having Bantams living in our yard. Living in Arlington, MA did not lend itself to keeping chickens although we managed to do so for several years. I loved getting fresh eggs every morning.
Sitting Pretty is for sale for $125 plus $10 shipping. If interested please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I sure wish WordPress would allow me to have a Paypal button on this website. Hate to think of having to switch. Any thoughts from other bloggers?
And for those of you who don’t know where the gallery is, it is on the second floor of an old mill building which was the reason for the beginnings of the town of Tiverton-the perfect spot to build a mill and dam the mill pond.
