3. WIP Wednesday

This week's Month of Love challenge - "Weapons".

In his nightly ritual, my cat stretches across my chest and starts kneading his paws, complete with razor-tipped claws - all to show his affections.

Sketchbook critter of the day - tones paper, pastel, cut paper.

Have I mentioned how much I love Jimmy Fallon's musical offerings? This near shot-for-shot recreation of More Than Words is delightful and hilarious.

9. Fab Friday - Mythic Worlds

This weekend is the annual MythicWorlds convention.  It is always fabulous seeing old art friends, and meeting new ones. Another highlight is the Krab Jab Studio room - which is always beautifully arranged and full of yummy art.   This year they are hosting the preview of their next show, "Arboreal Dreams" - which I did this little piece for - 

Acorn Dreams

"Our ancestors perceived the forest as a sacred space filled with living entities. Modern humans more often think of trees merely as objects to be harvested for mundane uses. The forest creatures however, have not broken the ancient connection between the trees and the living things they protect and nurture. While the squirrel, for instance, is fed and sheltered byt he tree, the tree in turn may have originally planted by the squirrel; the two create a kind of symbiotic magic, where both living beings are more than they could ever be alone."

You can see this, and the rest of the show (which is gorgeous) next Saturday at the official open.

10. WIP Wednesday -

This month I'm participating in the Month of Love challenge. The theme the first week is 'Heroes". As a cut-paper companion piece to the "Villain", Maleficent I did back in October, I decided to do a tribute to Winnie the Pooh. You can see all the amazing entries to the Month of Love here.

13. Music Monday - When You Wish Upon a Star

My daughter came home from her year in Florida doing the College Disney Program. There's been a lot of Disney culture at my house the last few years. In that vein, I love the acapella versions of Disney songs that this group does -

18. Music Monday - Snape's Memories...

Very sad about Alan Rickman's passing this week. Brings to mind the lengthy pensieve scene showing his history. And heart. It also has one of my favorite musical themes from the movie. (Sadly I can only find it split into two parts):
