Early Spring - New Tiny Art

Spring Chippy 2013 Thumb 
I am thinking Spring! Even though there are still vast snow drifts covering the landscape out my studio window and there is little sign of that delightful season, I know it's there waiting to emerge. I have Spring and Easter on the brain! Baby chicks, soft sweet bunnies, pastel Easter eggs......well...maybe just beyond the next early Spring storm. 
With Spring on my mind, I was inspired to complete this 5" x 5" India ink, colored pencil and watercolor painting of a little chipmunk. "Spring Chippy" is fresh from his winter burrow, a little hungry but happy and ready for the new season.

Melody And Casey Are Running

I've been running ALL winter (sometimes in temperatures of minus 7 degrees) to be ready for my fifth Run For The Critters!! I am excited to ask you all to help me - help them.

On May 26, 2013 I'll be running in the Memorial Day 10K Race in Lenox Mass. I will again be raising money for the senior dogs of Old Dog Haven. My goals are: 

Raise $4000 for the abandoned senior dogs of Old Dog Haven



Finish the six mile race and run it ten minutes faster than last year.



Me and my trusty dog, Casey are ramping up the miles and the hills in preparation for the big day. Stay tuned!!
