Hello All, I hope you've had a great summer! Just wanted to share that since the beginning of the year Mac was diagnosed with glaucoma and a fallen lens in his right eye. Apparently, it’s age related--he’ll be ten years old in December. So, there's some pressure on his eye that may cause pain, it's hard to tell. With regular visits to the vet to test his pressure levels and treatment with medication throughout the day, he seems to be his normal bunny self. Thank God! He’s slowing down a little bit, but I think having Tater for a friend sure helps! As any family with a special needs loved one, we all appreciate your prayers, especially for Mac. Blessings to you!
"There is no possession more valuable than a good and faithful friend."
...Especially during winter seasons. :) Hope your year is off to a good start!
On these cold days of winter, I pray you have a friend to keep you warm!
"There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met."
William Butler Yeats
Purr-Tater does NOT like to be covered up, ever. I walked in on this last week realized I was witnessing a Thanksgiving miracle, LOL! :-) Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed and cozy Thanksgiving weekend!
"To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,
to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven."

Here are a few of the new pieces I completed in time for the show (many still in progress). My new process includes embellishing traditional and archival digital paintings with collaging of paper, beads, and quilling.
Hope you are enjoying this summer like Mac and Purr-Tater are...
Whether you're chilling, doing something fun with a friend...
or just resting in this heat!
"Summer was our best season:
it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots,
or trying to sleep in the tree house;
summer was everything good to eat;
it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape..."
— Harper Lee

Hugs from Mac and Purr-Tater and best wishes for a sweet week!
and Happy National Poetry Month!
"I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light."

These two are usually in constant motion. I caught them in a rare moment of amicable rest. :-)
