oWLS AND pUSSY CATS

HAPPY SAINT VALENTINES DAY  ~ WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART BEAT ???



OUR SWEET HEARTS….OUR KIDS….OUR FURRY BABIES….OUR FAMILIES….OUR BEAUTIFUL BLUE PLANET ……OUR MYSTERIOUS CURIOUS UNIVERSE WITH IT'S ENAMOURING MOON AND STARS AND WARM SUN….AND ALL OF EARTH'S NATURAL TREASURES ….



I was quite surprised when i went back to the folders to look for a picture to post for Saint Valentine's Day and realized a lot of my art was inspired by hearts, owls and cats…. and some.

So for today I thought it would be nice to share some of my art work with you.


Of course here is " The Owl and the Pussycat " going out to sea, well floating in mid air in a sea of President Tyler morning glories.





One of my first owls I painted , unfortunately I played around with it too much, ruined it beyond repair and ended up throwing it away. I still do have the frame…in pieces.


One of the sketches I did for Paint Party Friday…..haven't attended since last fall. I think it's time to pay them a visit very soon.





Adore this digital drawing my daughter M did of our dear departed BIG FAT HOUSE CAT ELLIOT " ELLIE ANGEL"Spot the heart???


Another digital drawing of Elliot by M…another heart near his neck



Then I discovered the Artist Conk or shelf mushroom. my mother in all always painted on these mushrooms, an inexpensive way to create art. I simply adore wood burning into them , their fragrance is beautiful. This is "WEEPS" named after one of  Farley Mowat's pet owls.

If you  Weeps   he is available on etsy.



Then one day my husband brought me home this beautiful gorgeous brown velvet mushroom.

I haven't come across any more but hopefully this spring some pop up.




As you can imagine, i was listening to Bing Crosby when I did this mushroom : )
If you  him he is available on etsy


An ink painting of a ghost cat " Dirt the ghost cat " 
If you   him he is available on Etsy


I think think this little owl embroidery wool applique is probably my first attempt at the craft and therefore decided not to sell him.   



Another wool applique of a snowcat and again decided to keep him : )  



And this Treasure  - Chest I created with found crystal fossils dating back to the prehistoric ages. I made a glass bubble heart collage . It is kind of hard to see in this picture but it's a love letter in a envelope with a stamp and heart  glued down at the base of the treasure chest. Again I fell in    love with it and decided to take it off etsy.






This FAIRY'S TREE was a work of love for me. I had found the gorgeous crystal heart rock on one of my fossil hunts and decided it was the perfect base for this lovely whimsical fairy tree. If you love  fairies, crystals, hearts and old trees like me then maybe you would probably like this Fairy's Tree. I eventually sold it to a very lovely gal in the states. I'm sure she enjoys it as much as i did and still do even if it's not here with me : )

Starry, originally uploaded by Zsaj.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
