I hope all of you had a great Easter weekend and were able to spend it with family and loved ones. This time of year marks a period of regrowth and new beginnings, and this year is no different, except maybe I'm not taking things for granted as much as I did a few years ago. I'm finding I take pleasure and I'm more thankful for even the simpliest of things, and I'm feeling very hopeful about this country. I know that may not make sense with the economy still in turmoil, but with the warmer winds of spring and the greening of the landscape it all makes me feel energized and excited. I wish that feeling for everyone because hope and joy can be very powerful things and it can't help but give you balance in your life.
Something new to begin the week...."Elwood, All in Black." With the completion of this piece our cats have all been created and completed in papier mache. Elwood is the comic of our cat clan and runs throwing his back legs in the air like a new colt. He just makes me laugh and seems to know just when to coming flying in to see me as if to say, " Take a break, I need my head scratched!" He is also the smallest of our three cats, which was recently explained to us by our vet because Elwood has asthma. It may make him a smaller cat, but it doesn't seem to slow the little guy down at all. Elwood also smiles...yes, he really smiles!
Our Elwood actually has more white on him then painted in this piece and that is the reason for the title of the work..."Elwood, All in Black. "
