      Thank you so much! I love their little tiny, expressive hands, and how busy and alert Squirrels always are.

    Now this belongs on a wall, perhaps in one of the lovely mountain cabins or the great lodge on the rim of the grand canyon. :D

      That sounds nice. I think I'm going to mat and frame these Amate Bark Paper paintings once the remodeling, cleanup, makeover is done here. New bookcases are built for the TV room now library. This will get all of the books piled, leaning, or misfiled put in a proper place. There were only 3 floor to ceiling bookcases there, now there will be 5. The TV will now be in the fireplace room, and the computers will be in the library. The baseboards are on in all the newly tiled halls and rooms. The Guest bathroom is being stripped of old wallpaper, and the Needlepoint yarn is picked up, the canvases are properly filed. The whole dining room is now cleaned, painted, new baseboards, new tile floor, and all the furniture is cleaned, oiled, and ready for the dishes to be washed and put back in their proper place. The paintings are all dusted, washed, windexed and ready to be rehung. It's amazing when you start a project like this how much there is to do. That said...it is well worth it because there is not a speck of dirt when a room is finished. I just had to move all my watercolors, paints, and paper into the studio, and for the next few days I may go insane because I can't just stop and paint. My art is the only thing that keep me sane, when my body is in total pain, won't take another step, and can't do anything but sit or go to bed. Going to bed feels too much like giving up, and when I sit in my green easy chair I paint on my paintings. I've got another Eastern Rosella Parakeet I've painted, but the branches I cut are thrown out, and I need a new branch to finish the painting. It's been raining here for 3 days so I know our bad weather will head your way. We needed rain, and all my plants are delighted so rain is always a welcome guest. My Amaryllis, Ranunculus, Daffodils, and Bearded Iris are all putting our tall stalks and leafy growth. I love spring flowers, and I planted them in pots because the huge beds I used to dig and fill are impossible for me to do any more. I will photograph and paint spring flowers very soon, and probably put in some chickens because they make spring even better. Hope all is well with you, and burn some incense to make the world's ills a little better.
