Every morning, when I first enter my studio, I create a "warm-up" collage. I've been doing this for years as a way to jumpstart my creativity each day. I use whatever materials are on hand (paper scraps, cloth, junk mail, etc.), and I spend about 15 minutes on it from start to finish. I have been using recycled cereal and cracker boxes as the base layer, but now I am actually running out of boxes. I never thought I would run out of recycled materials!

Spring in the Garden
This is the time of year that is hard for me to remember patience. I am ready to start planting and working in the gardens, yet I know that there is still a chance of a late snow. So, I have been painting and creating in the studio, inspired by what is starting to appear in the gardens. This is one of my favorite new works of art, and I'm happy to share it with you!

Howard is Adopted!

It seems like Howard barely got moved in, and he was headed back out the door to his forever family. He is such a little, cuddly sweetheart, and they instantly fell in love with him. This was a "feel good" adoption, where I think they are the perfect family for him, and he is the perfect dog for them!

We have a new foster for the next week, while his actual foster dad is on vacation. Howard is a little male maltese, about 7 pounds and 4 years old. He loves playing with our dogs, and he's also a good snuggler!
Howard is available for adoption through Little White Dog Rescue in Omaha, NE.
