It's not ALL about the cats.... Ahem
I know, I know... It may seem like I'm going off-script here with a couple of dogs!  I realize many folks either identify as either a cat lover or a dog lover, however I'm actually a well rounded animal lover!  I grew up with dogs, and absolutely love them ...

Messy Calico: Fast, Intuitive Painting
One of the things I love to do is fast, intuitive painting.  These are SUPER QUICK sketches in ink and watercolor.  They only take a few minutes, and often end up being some of my favorite pieces since I didn't over think things. I love doing them to loosen...
