Hi Laura,
Great blog you have here. I love the pics of your kitties. I have two myself ;)
Thank you for having joined my blog. I just became your latest follower. I have a friend in Long Island who's also an artist. He paints portraits, landscapes, and bit of everything. I have 3 of his paintings. Hope to read some of your writing soon.
Cheers!
Claudia

I got here from Seth's blog today (Altered Page). Am very impressed by your so called sketches that look more like museum quality works of art to me.
Your banner (because I often work in fabric) screams to be an art quilt wall hanging!!!! to me.
Lovely work all of it.
You are the second person in two days I have come across who has to deal with fibromyalgia. Oy vey. You have a wonderful attitude.
PS I have a Fred too. One cat. and 5 grandchildren. ;-)
