Oh, lovin this kitty! His eyes remind me of Sylvester Stallone (in a good way).

Holy cow, an 11 mile run! I had a knee replacement a few years ago and running isn't something that I could do (if I wanted to ;-)



Love this kitty! I need a doggy one for Mya's room.


Love the kitty... and his companion birdy! Excited to see the finished masterpiece!

Oh yes.. and about the not finishing thing... I don't know any artist who has completely conquered it... I think it's just part and parcel of being creative and easily bored! Some you finish... and some you don't... and some you repaint and love 'em when they're finally done!


MEOW! You're a stud!

I have the same issue with my paintings. I don't touch them in forever and then end up repainting them. Trying to break that habit. :)

Congrats on the run! That's awesome!
