The Thing and Sandy

It's really Wednesday. I have to post important items late the night before, because Shelagh Duffett gets up at the crack of dawn to read this stuff and I can't.

FIRST things first.
Sandy Mastroni! She's a self taught artist and owner of several cats. She also owns a creepy ventriloquist dummy that keeps jumping in front of her camera during photo shoots. The cats, the dummy and Sandy all share a home with a very nice husband who (I'm guessing) is lucky to be living with her. Please take a moment to discover Sandy's unique and mysterious art.
Oh, did I tell you she's doing a giveaway? Here's Sandy's link! Good luck catching lots of fish today, Sandy.

And no, I mean yes, this piece of sha-tah art up there on the left is mine. That insane race car THING I'm trying to finish! EEE gads! Save me. My tracing paper drawing taped over the background, waiting for me to put it out of it's misery.
Have a great one,

Hiya Ronnie!
Oooh, I'm looking forward to seeing Sandy's site - the ventriloqist thingy sounds cool! Ashley asked me to tell you that he has packed his little case, and is on his way to Glasgow airport as we speak. You would think being a dragon, he would fly over himself, but I guess business class seduced him!

Hey Ronnie-Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment-much appreciated. I will make sure to go over to Sandy's site and check it out-thanks for sharing!

I see that you have learned how to link things now-way to go-you're a blogging expert now!

Much love,

Crack of dawn indeed! lol.
That was a very cool site. I don't know how I'd feel with those dummies around watching me. Her art is great:)
Good luck with your car racer piece. Commissions are hard.

Ronnie, I love the rabbit in front of the rocket man. That is a great idea.

Have an awesome day.

That picture reminds me of ME! We have so many jackrabbits here and one my my favorite (and possibly sick) past times is to chase them down alleys at night, laughing as they dodge between headlights. It doesn't get better than that.
