Golly! More from Art Shenanigans

Hello everyone! First, Happy Birthday to The Unsinkable Molly Brown. Look at that new toy, and that new bed. Don't get up, Moll. We'll let ourselves out.

Those paws are as big as my head, honest.

Well, I am sure you have all heard about The Big Chill here in the Sunny South. While I do have Art Shenanigans to share, here are a couple of shots.

During -- and after! That's how cold it was, too. That is not my camera. Everything looked as blue as Babe the Ox.

There is no "before" shot, you will notice. T and I were minding our own biz when suddenly we just had a feeling. There was that quiet sound the Earth gets when she is settling down for a long winter's nap, you know what I mean?

It has been a real recordbreaking winter in the Classic City. We had a White Christmas, and now we've had a week of 8-inch snow'n'ice that would NOT go anywhere no matter how much we begged Mother Nature to get rid of it. Seriously. My mail did not show up for four days. And I still had to work...

Even Kittyboy was not having any of it. What the --??? He had a great time watching the birds come get their suet, though.

Here we go. Coloured pencils and ink on paper on top of paper, some of them sealed with not just a kiss but with Mod Podge.

Miss Fitt. Coloured pencil and ink on 90 lb cold press paper, on top of paper, on top of moleskine.

Facing Forward. Coloured pencil and ink on moleskine paper. Sealed.

Mouth Shut. Ditto but not sealed.

Spite. Ditto ditto. I tried making her hand look like a scissor.

My goodness, isn't Art lurid ...! Too many horror shows as a kid, no doubt.
Take care and enjoy the weather.
Candace, Still in Athens.

Brought To You By --

The letter A. Honest, I did not have anything to do with the making of this little trick. An errant piece of old fabric neatly settled down on my walk in front of my old rickety steps.

Here she is! Following her many and sundry perils, “Candace Wants To Travel Doll” is safe and sound — for now, anyway – in Athens. Go here to find her home base. And she just landed in the Athens post offal after a big hoo-ha in Brasil!
I will be adding to her adventure travelog soon enough -- not to mention adding to HER -- and then, once again, Candace Doll will be on the way! Kimberly wants her back in her original digs by April 15th. Why does that date make me shiver?

Straight from their holiday gig on my tree, The Monks take time out to welcome Candace Wants To Travel Doll. Nothing like taking a load off your knit feet and checking out the new girl.

And speaking of shiver, you would never know it from the warmish weather today, but last week we had this type Extreme Weather going on --

and here in the Classic City, that is pretty nippy.
Take care!
