"Happiness is never stopping to think if you are."

"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance;
the wise grows it under his feet."

This painting was done standing at my big table, with lots of tools and visual reference, maybe too much information (TMI). I'll simplify things next time. Here I did the background first. On the last sunflower painting, I did the flower first. I like to mix things up so I don't get stuck in a rut. I painted this on 144 lb., 17pt., heavy weight Yupo paper that Marc from Legion Papers sent me to sample. He also sent me a couple of pads of translucent Yupo paper. That's got my head spinning with ideas!
"It's never too late to have a happy childhood."
It was a year ago yesterday that we captured Opie and Cutie Pye
and their siblings, who now reside in New York.
Awe, they were just little wild bush babies.
I must admit, they've really made themselves indispensable
around the place. How did we ever mange without them?
They sure have brought us an extra special kind of happiness.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay cool and have a great weekend.
Hugs and Purrs,
and the little darlings
