MERRY CHRISTMAS DAY!

Had a lot of family and friends over to visit this morning, and guests from the resorts too, came to the gallery. It's a really beautiful sunny day, cool Caribbean breeze blowing. Merry Christmas all!







My son Charles, me and George, who was hiding his face because he got it scratched up in a car accident a few days ago.



We got him to put his hand down!




Rafael harassing Santa for his saxophone!



My son has a new car.








Master BibiCat Esq has a new basket. He loves it!





A new series I'm doing, miniatures on wood. This is the first one of a series of about 8.

NO SKINNY DIPPING

I'm baaaaccck! Was missing for a week, computer was suffering from a hangover, had constant hiccups, headache and vomiting. But I worked on it myself today in desperation (the doctor hasn't showed up yet) and lo and behold IT DID NOT EXPLODE IN FACT IT'S WORKING AGAIN! Well not perfectly but it's working. Enough for me to blog. Here's a new addition to the art show 2009 family, called NO SKINNY DIPPING, and a few more for the gallery walls.

WEEKEND WITH MY GRANDSON



I got my grandson Kameron over the weekend and he and I decorated the tree. It was so much fun and we played Acid Xmas cd's.















Headbanger like his gramma! Here he's rocking to a heavy metal Xmas song.







Here he's working on his first still life. I know right away when he wants to paint - he presents himself in the workshop and peels off his shirt!





Another 9X12 for the 2009 art show - WALKING THE DOG (of course, what other name could I give it? WATERMELON BUTT?)

THE SANTA CLAUS COLLECTION

So I have a thing for fat hairy men who dress all in my favourite color and plays with toys (Jesus I just realized, I'm really in bad shape). Anyway, I been collecting these for 14 years now, I started with two that belonged to my mom and it just kinda grew on me. I took 'em out and displayed them as I do each year, and I still like them a LOT! There's always room for one more so if you feel charitable and in the Christmas spirit send one over to join the collection! (Don't you think the one with the saxophone looks like Barn?!?)

















These are two older ones, from my mom. These are gorgeous carved and painted wooden ones.

The one in the middle was from my daughter.
