This morning I got up with plans of heading to church with my sister and her family.
Unfortunately, we are getting a ton of snow. The roads were bad and as she lives 20 miles away I decided to turn around having witnessed three cars already in the ditch.
So instead here I sit with a warm cup of coffee, paints and brushes and my imagination.
It’s Zellie Bellies turn to be immortalized on canvas!
I really wish I could have made it to church, it’s been a while and I was looking forward to it, but painting is also a good way to spend a cold snowy Sunday morning.
It’s not just the people that have cabin fever…
Finished up my girl. This is post glaze, but I still need to touch up around the whisker there on the right and get some varnish on it.
I got some paint brush markers for Christmas and tried my hand at a quick drawing of my little Zelda girl. Turned out better that I thought for a quick sketch.
I also started a new painting of my Otto-man. This is really rough yet, I really struggle with brindle coats. I haven’t figured out a technique that I like yet. I overwork them.
This is Cody. When I got divorced, I left my dogs Cody and Tullahbee with my exe because my daughters remained there and are very attached to them. I often visit them and it broke my heart to leave them behind, but I know they are happy and living their best life.
Cody was adopted from the Humane Society when he was approximate 3. He’s a love bug and a great cuddler. He barks at everything, including his shadow, especially now that he’s getting deaf. He really enjoys booty scratches and dog biscuits , but is not a huge fan of toys. Of course, walks and car rides are on the top of his list though. All in all, he’s been a wonderful part of my life. I hope you enjoy learning more about him.

Beautiful Brown Eyes,
Peeking out from black lashes,
This is Zelda. She came into my life only two months ago through a rescue in my area. She had just given birth and raised 6 puppies to a healthy 8 weeks old and was ready to have all the attention back on herself.
There are several things that I have discovered about Zelda in the past few months. First, she is a lover. She loves other dogs, cats, and definitely people. Second, she is a licker. She loves to give kisses. Third, she can hold her own with much larger beasties than herself. Just ask Otto, her Plott Hound brother.
I bring her everywhere that I go, within reason, so that she likes people. Since she’s a small dog prone to resource guarding her person, I wanted to make sure that she was comfortable around people. Turns out, she’s doing really well with this, and although she still seeks the comfort of her momma’s lap, she likes to love on others too. So if you see us out and about, you might get some loves too.
Don’t hold her too close to your face unless you’d like a tongue bath from a 14 pound pro licker. It’s really hard to not want to cuddle her close, because she’s a very good cuddler. She really boroughs in.
She may be smaller than the cat, but she can definitely hold her own in any tussle. She’s fierce when she needs to be. Zelda can give her 60 pound brother a run for his money. She’s got that fast, sneaky thing going on. She’s also really smart and has learned to distract him, and then bound in to steal his toy or treat.
All-in-All she’s been a great addition to my life and I look forward to sharing our adventures with you.
