New paintings and my first blog award! Woohoo!

I just finished up two more fun little collage paintings. Like the Tweedle frog piece in my last post, these were done with original illustrations that i created from my animal dolls. I am really enjoying this series....i like the juxtaposition of the "tightness" of my illustrations with a more free form, washy style of painting. Both creations are ready to buy on etsy.

And now for fun and exciting news...I received the Renee blog award from a very special blogger, Just Me Jill! I can't believe it! I am very honored and this was a super nice and encouraging way to end the week. Please visit Jill's blog. She does absolutely precious paintings....all you cat ladies and gents will especially enjoy them!

So, in the tradition of blog awards, i must pass this one along to some of my fellow blog friends. There is NO way that i can pick one, so here are 4 bloggers that i LOVE to check in with. I know you will enjoy them too!

~Chicken Lips: paperclay creations full of sass and style!
~Noodle and Lou: art that overflows with heart!
~Alley Cat Rescue: a fellow TNRing cat lady!
~My Pink Turtle: pure delight and magic!

I PROMISE that this weekend will be filled with CAT CHAT! I am getting ready to head over to the location where we TNRed last weekend to get some good pics. And I will be going to an apartment complex tonight for another cat adventure.

Congrats on your award! Such cute paintings. Have to admit, I'm taken with the froggies you do. And good luck with your tnr-ing. Sammie and Bella, our two black kitties were feral, the other 4 are rescue cats. I greatly admire your efforts.
