Sunday Morning Sleep in

Hey, Pink Monkey ! It's time to get up! We NEEED to eat Noooow!
I rarely sleep in. The cats are traditionalists and hate Any change in their schedule. Also MJ seems to think that if I'm asleep getting candid shots of me is a great idea.

Pixie's glare wasn't enough to get me moving this Sunday morning. Max's leap from the window sill onto my head was.

I really do love my cats, but it would be nice to sleep in once in a while.

A Day of Mourning

This morning one of my older black cats had to be put to sleep.

Roswell was an unusual cat. He looked like a tiny spider when my husband, MJ, found him in a shopping cart at Walmart and brought him home.When he was 4 months old he survived a black widow bite, but he was never quite same afterward. Ros was a loner and made nice on his terms.

He was loved by one of my black and white females named Pixie. He had no clue what she wanted, but seemed to like to sit with her. Poor Pixie, she's searching the house for him now. I wish I could tell her what happened. He never liked to get his picture taken so I can't share how handsome he was with you.

Ros said "Hello" to me one morning and was able to steal the lids off full 2 liter bottles of soda with out using his teeth or spilling a drop of soda. He had mastered the house vortex and seemed to appear and disappear at will.

I will miss you Roswell and I'll do my best to comfort Pixie.

All my love.

My new toy

I just bought a light tent on ebay and it showed up this morning. Now I need to get some tiny lights to clip to it.

I want to take better pictures of my sculpts. I hope this helps. I always liked using dark backgrounds for my sculpts but a lot of people seem to be turned off by them . I look forward to trying this tent out on the 3 new pieces I just finished.

I did shoot Lobo on a white ground and I do like the result, but I also like how Rosa looks on black. Decisions, decisions.

Well, I'm off to experiment and see how things look.
