The Eyes Are The Window To The Soul

Magical

My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected

~ Anna M. Uhlich

The windows are rattling here and it is a blizzard.

It is so cold and I hope it blows over soon.

I thought it was a good night to sit quietly on my birthday at my art desk.

This is an over sized winged bookmark I created, with an added Character Constructions Mermaid.

It is hard to believe some kitty cats love water...

Happy creating.

Beautiful creation ~ I am loving looking around your blog! Fabulous artist. I use to have a kitty who liked water. He would sit beside the bath and dip his paws into the water, a few times I thought he was going to get in! He also loved kitty baths! Happy Birthday too Laura!

Blessings,
Katie

Hello Laura,
I just became your 220th follower as I LOVE...LOVE...LOVE...YOUR ARTWORK AND I CHERISH AN ARTIST WHO USES SUCH BEAUTIFUL QUOTES.
I love Mermaid Kitty...I have three inside cats and my Mr. Simply and I feed feral cats. I also have 2 rescue dogs. NO CAT I know likes water except to drink and drink they do but this Mermaid kitty loves water but spends more time on land than most mermaids...awesome.
I have been doing ATC'S for about a year now and participate in The Artful Bag Challenge and Dress up 2011...slowly I am doing more...I taught myself to draw and I LOVE colored pencils as my media...I have only shown one of my pictures on my blog...I have over 3,000 sketches and 4, 000 poems I have wrote.
I would be honored if you stopped by my blog and would be honored if you chose to follow it.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY
