Oliver Update 112113

He's feeling much better today to the point that he's been a pest preventing me from finishing up some very important projects. Here he is laying on my studio floor, after nine straight hours of pestering me, finally taking a nap.

Oliver is Sick!!!

Oliver is sick, he's been to the vet and he was given a shot to stop the vomiting.  I waited an hour like they suggested and then gave him water, 15 minutes later he was throwing up again.  This indicates that something is stuck in his stomach.  So now I wait for John to come home so that I can take Oliver for xrays to find out if something is stuck in his stomach or not. 

So...if he has something stuck in his stomach this means major surgery, and like tomorrow.  I'm putting my DVD back on sale and ditto this on the eBooks to help pay for his surgery, and the two vet visits today... I asked him a gazillion questions and I think at one point he finally figured out I was testing him... my experience with our last vet was, lets just say, unpleasant.

View Outside my Studio Window

Snow!!!  I laid down around 10:30 for a much needed nap and woke up a couple of hours later to snow.   Here's the view out of my studio window, onto snow covered scaffolding planks.

Crows Stencil is Here!!!

And I'm already having fun!  If all goes well I will be getting my screen printing table cleared off and will use the stencil with natural dyes and earth pigments on fabric! 

Acrylic ink and alcohol inks on watercolor paper.

Until then I shall finish my this Harvest piece I started way back in September.
