Portland Or and rest of the state can breath a sigh of relief. The storm has broken, the freezing rain has given way to regular rain melting and the roads are safe again. People are peeking out their windows and venturing out of our little rabbit holes again. Here’s a few pictures I took.

The little trail around the tree was forged by my two dogs for potty breaks.The old potty trail!  Our dachshund was almost buried, into the deep snow, just a glimpse of the very top of this head and a tail showing. . Our Scottie is a bit taller but not much.  But she’s a lot stronger, you know what they say about Scotties, well maybe you don’t, but what they say is  a big dog with short legs.She has more strength and could plow throw it, she jump/plow a head almost trying to jump up over it, plowing along in the funniest way. It got so distasteful to our doxie that he tried to just have his little pee break on our patio steps, so he wouldn’t have to touch the cold snow. I had a rather loud reaction and l pushed  him off the steps before the deed was done, what do you think you’re doing? Have your lost your mind?

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s always played a role in my life, in one form or another. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting.I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild, at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.

    1. Are you in an area that receives lots of snow? If so, How does your pooch handle it? It’s a new thing for it to be so heavy, we can get smatterings some winters, this was nothing like anything in their experience. Funny.
