Cat Lady painting, Aloe and Bromelaid plants, Moon, Sunrise and Woodstork

Ah, the cat lady painting, I finished it by adding a painting on her wall.  Yep, she's dreaming of a Yellow Cottage and a puppy too.  I did color her up a big more with pastels. The painting is with Prismacolor pencils, pen and Pastels.

The plants have come around. . .Whew.  My neighbor gave me food for them and all of them have come back.  The Bromelaid came back too with the food. She had been out back in the sun because of the painters. She had brown spots all over her. She's still recovering after over a year.

I still need to find the yellow cottage rather quickly. The neighbor came back permanently, but not the wife, and he has been re - remodeling for months. Keeps me from working (writing) albeit the painting is in the back room but it's beginning to be 90s.  Un-live-able. . . if anyone knows of a nice quiet area . . I can paint the cottage yellow if need be. . .Please let me know.

Thank you so much Kristin and Eva for a most invaluable place for everyone to show off their talent and teach others. The learning experience here is awesome. Happy Paint Party Friday.

Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.

Aloe is coming back. 
 Bromelaids aren't there yet, but they were totally brown too.
 Clouds going over the moon the only night I could see it.
 We are now in our rainy/stormy season. . .
 .  .so much too many clouds.
 We have the most beautiful Sunrises.
 I love capturing them during my morning walks.
 Look at who came and stood beside me. .  .
 . .  Wood Stork in flight.  I didn't know he would do that.
If you do not GO after what you want, you’ll never have it.
If you do not ASK, the answer will always be NO.
If you do not step FORWARD, you will ALWAYS be in the same place.

  9. Hi Janet! What a great cat lady. I like that she has her cottage and a dog on the wall. Trying to find another home can be difficult and I hope you find that cottage soon. Love the big bird that just took off in front of you. It's nice to have a camera handy, especially for those moments and also for the beautiful sunrises there. Happy PPF and have a wonderful week!
