Forever Change

I am probably not going to share a whole lot about this on my blog because I would rather talk about it in person. A week and half ago life was forever changed. We found out that my precious mother in law Laurie has cancer throughout her liver. We are in a word, devastated. There are too many emotions and phases of emotions to list here...we did decide to take a quick family photo before Laurie starts her treatment. Our wonderful friend Nicole made herself available on short notice and you can see some of the pix here on her blog. We had a lot of fun as family taking these pictures.

This shows the progression of my painting over the last week. This is pretty ugly stage where I just start throwing whatever color of paint is on my palette at it. All of these ugly stages help make it great later on by adding history and texture to the painting.

Happy Birthday Buckley

This is a little late but on February 19th Buckley turned 1! We helped him celebrate his birthday by taking him to the vet where he learned he had abnormally dry skin and that we don't feed him enough. Something he has suspected all along. Here is a very serious picture of all grown up Buckley.
