Happy New Year and The Artists in the Family and...

Happy New Year.  I hope your Christmas was wondrous and that 2018 will be a great one.

And.....

I'd like to share some of the baby girl's and our son-in-law's work. Meghan Cox paints in oils.




Jacob Lunderby's work combines painting, photography and digital manipulation.


And....

A friend/fellow author is part of a rescue group rehoming twenty endangered ferals in New Jersey as they get the funds.  They currently have set up a go fund me page: https://www.gofundme.com/savesummitcats.
Any help with donations or spreading the word will be much appreciated.

  1. Happy New Year and wishing you a great year ahead with health and much happiness. I love the artwork and find the one with the man with all the pillows fun. The split effect of the what looks like 2 pictures is quite intriguing as well as the purple art piece. I commend the people who are helping the feral cats especially since it is cold. We have about -25C tonight. Happy 13th to your fur baby.

    Hooray for helping the feral cats too. A huge task, and one which needs doing.

      Helping the ferals is always such an uphill battle, but thank goodness there are good folks out there willing to lead the charge.
