This is how I clean [ click to enlarge , except for the Jerry ones ]

Today > as I was cleaning the basement , under lots of junk I found this velveteen covered chair for "JERRY". So , of course I had to stop and clean it and give it to Jerry with a book for him and take a photo !
Back to cleaning >>> fill up a few more garbage bags [ of probably really good stuff ] .... THEN I find this little rubber cat head and I had to stop cleaning to look for the perfect old bottle to put the head on it, [ and take photos ] , THEN peel some carrots and get a chicken in the oven . This is when I found this 'adorable' photo on my kitchen counter . It's Baby Silas ..... so in the middle of carrots I had to take photos to introduce you to Silas ! Isn't he CUTE !
congratulations Theresa and Brian , welcome Baby Silas !
a little more cleaning > where's Michael ! He's late and the carrots are burnt and the chicken is dried out
ah ..... what a day
P.S. yes ... I painted that little cupboard thing a long time ago , the flowers too .
and no I have not gotten around to painting my new window which is now 5 months old .
Is this how you clean ? Is this the artist's way to clean ? Please tell me you do this too ! I get distracted and inspired while I clean ..... ha ha . Michael has not noticed because there is still so much for me to do in here .

been busy

I've been busy .... cleaning ! In the basement .
I'm getting rid of so much , dried and silk flowers,
old Christmas craft stuff, old art work , bits of this and that [ things I was going to use for altered art ],
old furniture [ not going to paint furniture anymore ! ] and old books .....I am a collector ! and a hoarder . I'm a slob .
There's so many things I want to make , I'll never get to it all .
I had to remove that Barbie painting > I'm not supposed to post paintings that are not in that gallery YET ] .... so that's why if you're wondering why it's gone
and late last night .... a drawing . I think she has dishpan hands . I don't know what's going on with her hands ... ha ha !

vintage Tuesday rabbit

so ... way back in 1980 or there about , I found this rabbit doll at the 'Do Drop In' antique shop in Westport , Ct.
I think I paid $ 5.00
There's a tag on it that says .....
Schmid Bros.
Boston Mass.

I love him
He is posable.
And then [ way back then ] ....I drew him ...
on illustration board with graphite and colored pencil [ no Inktense then ]

I just love this rabbit .... isn't he great !
click to enlarge. I think I will do some new drawings of him ....maybe put them on Etsy
I don't know , what do ya think ?
