My big gray cat tries to makes himself comfy

 Resting after reading Consumer Reports and doing the crossword puzzle.

Cat? What cat?

 His work is never done!

 He's quite literate and a music lover!

If only there was a decent place to sleep in this house.

The Monarchs are coming...hopefully!

My friend, Judy, gave me some milkweed seeds to plant to attract Monarch butterflies.
It worked! Finally a Monarch showed up.
 She must have laid a lot of eggs.

Pretty soon there were 7 caterpillars and they got busy eating all the leaves.

 Judy said that's what they were supposed to do. She said to keep watering anyway.
The caterpillars are all gone and so are the leaves. Somewhere the butterflies are forming.
I haven't seen any cocoons yet.

Paintings thanks to Elizabeth Wix photographs

I love Elizabeth Wix's photography. They're perfect for still life painting. 
Here's two paintings I've just done using her photos. 

I hope it's O.K. with you, Elizabeth.

Here's Elizabeth's blog

Zen Doodle Workshop magazine

I'm in the Summer issue of Zen Doodle magazine.

 The article is called "Botticelli Meets Artful Doodling".
I explain how to use images (in this case old master paintings) with Zentangles.

Rush right out and get one.
