First of all, I'd like to thank Prince. Thanks for your beautiful lyrics and melodies. Here is my rough Purple Rain sketch. I have some new elements like the mushrooms and the butterflies, but I also have some of the things from my other paintings like the birds and the clouds. I can't wait to get started on this one.

Today is a great day. I have finally completed "Blame it on the Rain". As I was painting this I listened to all kinds of music. I listened to a lot of Prince. One of my favorite songs is Purple Rain, so to continue with the rain series, my next painting will be called just that. I can't wait to get started. I am very excited and have millions of ideas. I do have to go to the art store and buy a new canvas and some red paint.

So I've painted everything my original sketch had. Happy with everything, thing is, I feel something is missing. The middle of the painting "needs" something else. I have no idea what I could add. A tree? More flowers? Lower clouds? Hmmmm, I've got to think about it for a minute. I'll let you know.

Grey and tiny, the squirrel is cuddly, and oddly enough - not sad. I wanted the squirrel to be grey since the girl's hair is brown, otherwise it would be too much brown. I see squirrels and chipmunks scurry across my backyard everyday, most of them brown. One day I saw a grey-silver fox type squirrel that caught my attention. That is what this one is based on, only smaller and cuter.

Not too long ago, I did another painting of a girl with long brown wind blown hair. I love the effect, so natural and carefree. I wanted to identify with her, that's why I gave her brown hair and brown eyes. The two little guys that will be with her are still to come. I gave her skin an extra pale color since the sun hasn't come out in ages and I love the contrast with the dark hair. More to come soon! Brrrr! She must be cold!

I love to see where people create their art, it says a lot about them. I finally got a room in my house just for this. I love this room. I have old toys, new toys and music. I will be painting this weekend so I'll have some new stuff to show on Monday. Have a super nice weekend!

I don't know her name. I do know that she decided to bring both her pet owl and squirrel. Odd pets to own, but to each his own. For some reason I thought she'd be wearing a beautiful gown, something like a vintage Vivienne Westwood, but she is completely naked!

So, this girl I was talking about, will be holding her pet. Thing is, I haven't decided what her pet is going to be. I thought a squirrel would be a super cute pet, they're small and have the best faces. Then an owl was another option, if he's white, or even a light pink, he would be fabulous!
