Peanut Butter Skelly Time!

I was having a little peanut butter on a sesame rice cake while working on two skellies, and all of a sudden that silly little song, "peanut butter jelly time" popped in my head...only I don't have any jelly so I changed it to "peanut butter skelly time".

This is the little guy I'm working on today plus I have to get some things finished up in clay. I guess that makes it a two-fer day with a bit of clay and a bit of paint.

I also played with the new camera. I've had goldfinches and house finches on the bird feeders keeping me company as I work. I just love seeing them when I look up, which is happening more frequently since I have a squirrel that jumps up on a plant stand and clicks his little claws on the patio window to let me know he needs a peanut. Geez!

Off to finish my peanut butter....have a good day!

Great face on that skelly fella Laurie! What is he holding in his hand?

He has a broom he stole from the witch that lives next to him. He never learns!

The winter was so awful here and this poor squirrel was looking terrible so I started to set out nuts for him when I saw him on the fence. If I forgot a day, or was tardy, he started tapping on the window at ground level. If that didn't get a response he would see me at the studio table and he started jumping onto the plant stand so he was at my eye level, and would tap until I made eye contact with him. Pavlov's squirrel!! We had a friend, Don, teach a squirrel to ring his back doorbell when it wanted a peanut. They are smart little fellows.

I have not named him, but he is the tiny guy the big boys pick on. I like the underdog!

The goldfinch just showed up about two weeks ago and came in as a flock. They are so pretty and get those Monkey-Cats all excited!! HA!!
Thanks Pattee!
