Motobikes and Guard Dogs...

Today was the second motobike ride of the year. Here are a few things I came away with...

-Did you know that ice on a lake will to drop the air temperature around said ice by what seems like about 20 degrees. It's true. Ask Jennifer. I'll give you her number if you need it. Kidding.
Here we are riding down the road next to this wonderful water...beautiful... open water...beautiful...a little ice...a little cooler...full on ice...O.O...What the hell man? Interesting...

-While there never seems to be enough chai on most days. A large chai in the middle of a motobike ride, possibly a little too much. That's right, I'm not afraid to say it.. a little too much chai there.

-Even a bad day on a motobike is better than most days without a motobike. Very much looking forward to the next ride.

A big thank you to both Vanonis for providing me with such lovely company today. :)

Since I lost my job, most of my days consist of drawing/painting, and spending quality time with Gus the great dane. I have noticed a trend, he has always been very attached to me, but now he seems to keep an eye on me most all of the time. Our usual dialogue...(no..Gus doesn't really speak, but if he did...)

Me: I think I need a tasty beverage.
Sleeping Gus: Where are you going? *gets up* I should come.
Me: You don't need to come, I'll be right back. *walks him back to the couch*
Gus: I should come, *gets up, again* just in case.
Me: Really, I'll be right back. Lay down.*helps him onto the perfectly comfortable people couch*
Gus: Where are you going? *boomerang* What if something happens?
Me: Just getting some water. *back to the couch*
Gus: I should come. *gets up to follow*
Me: Really, I am just getting water. Stay. *almost lifts back onto the couch*
Gus: Don't leave me. I should come. *springs up* Hey.. aren't there treats in there?
Me: *sigh*
Gus: I win.

He is my own guardian Goose. But a picture speaks a thousand words...

Nothing is going to sneak up on me.

That's all for now.

Day two of Blog!

I have followers! (even if one of them is me because I clicked the wrong button and have yet to figure out how to stop following myself. >.> I'm creepy.)

I think I'm going to like this place, it is kind of a relief not have to fight off any vampires or defend against mafioso thugs, and while I love animals, good grief, that zoo takes up plenty of time. I thought I would post some of the other things I'll have at the upcoming shows this year. (humor me... it has been a long time since I've had this much new stuff, lol!) I'm going to be doing sets of small prints (4x6ish), and trading card sized prints of the women that I've been painting. As well as their male counterparts when I finish painting them. Just the perfect sizes to carry around in your wallet, purse or man-purse-bag thingy. Hehe. Here they are. I'll have two sets, "The Fighters" and "The Magicians" :) They will also be available as individual cards and prints. These things will be showing up in my Etsy Store too. (picks her followers up off the floor) Stay with me here.. lol. Very soon I will be selling off the originals so message me if there are any of interest.

Okay, enough of this self promotion stuff. Going for my second motobike ride of the year today. I can't wait! While the winter has been very productive, I am ready to become the moto-girl again and spend my spare moments zipping around the upper midwest. There is almost nothing as good as driving along and feeling the temperature change just because you rode into a valley or passed between some shading trees. Or to be able to smell the wonderful scents of the world that you never get when inside a car...or just to go fast and hug the twisty roads with your best friends. So excited!

Well that's about everything for now. Have a lovely day two! I hope you come back real soon.

Love and hugs

In the upcoming days, I'll have more new things to offer at my shows. Below are a few of those items. Who doesn't love stickers of Gus?!



With a gun to my head, Jessica "Clinker" Hickman is making me create this blog. So if I make mistakes typing, it is out of fear. :)

Let's try to post a picture, shall we? Here is my Goose. Formally known at Gossamer, great dane extraordinaire.

Now that my toes are wet, I am going to scurry off and hide. Thank you for stopping by.
