Keep whales Out of Captivity

Yesterday we went to my grandson Max’s last flag football game for the season. It was blazing hot but so much fun!
Hope you are having as nice a Saturday as Buddy is!
Tonight I will spend the evening in my studio. Time spent painting, spinning, or whatever I’m doing there always brings me back to center. My 3 dogs always come with me and doze on the floor nearby, and we listen to music. Our favorite musician right now is an old favorite, Mike Rowland. Magical music, very peaceful.
I’m working on a large painting these days, larger than any I’ve done in years. Here is the raw beginning, done mainly just to get paint on the canvas:
Below is the result of my second layer of paint. Horse angel at the top left gives his blessing.
They are my bliss too, most of the time.
That’s all for now folks!
A subject I am truly passionate about: ending the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species (SeaShepherd.Org).
Life has been so quiet lately, I can’t come up with much to write about. I guess that’s a good thing.
Bridget, my standard poodle, recently tried a different grooming salon and came out with a new haircut. She always is so happy after a haircut. Partly because she can see again once her bangs are cut. We had to switch, her previous groomer (and owner of the “salon”) lost all his staff. The last time I took her there at 8:30 am and she wasn’t ready to come home until almost 9 pm. Her groomer that day announced that he had done 17 dogs that day all by himself! There’s more to this story, but I think the previous statement says it all.
I ordered another fleece from a wonderful farm in Colorado called SisterSheep. I wanted a wool that could be worn next to the skin, so this fleece is from a Rambouilett sheep. It arrived yesterday and it was beautiful, so soft and carefully skirted,very clean. It will be much easier to process than the last two I got at Maryland Sheep and Wool. I found the farm on Etsy, there are very few fleece to be had at this time of year-shearing was done earlier this spring. I was really surprised at the high demand for sheep fleece. So I will be washing fleece all weekend.
We will attend my grandson Max’s football game on Sunday. They are in the playoffs on a local tag (not sure it that’s right) football team. So much fun to watch! I must remember to take pictures next time.
Well, I think I’ve stretched this as far as I can. Hopefully I’ll have more to say, and sooner, next time.
