My Sister and Friend

Here is a photo of my sister and her new friend Digit.  According to his owner, Digit is mellow.  Tammy doesn't look like she believes him:)

Every Time I Visit the Bellagio

Every time I visit the garden at the Bellagio I think it's the most beautiful one.  They change it 5 times a year and it's spectacular.  Here are photos from fall.  Click to make the photos bigger.  The flowers are amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Life is Beautiful

The Life Is Beautiful Festival was held here last weekend.  We could hear the music at our house.  They had a lot of cool things going on - music and art.  Artists were allowed to choose spaces like walls and rooftops to work on.  We rode our bikes downtown on Sunday morning so we could see some of the murals.  There was a huge one on a wall of a hotel that was closed down 2 years ago.  We tried to get over to see it, but it was blocked off.  We didn't buy tickets because we didn't think there were any groups we were interested in hearing.  Kanye West's music isn't my thing, but Arctic Monkeys might be okay...  Anyway, I'm posting the photos that Jim took of what we could see.  We'll make another trip this weekend when things are open again.  There were some really cool signs and interesting murals.  Check it out.

I think downtown Las Vegas has funk value.  What do you think?

Fun With Technology!

My sweet husband got me a surface tablet.  I love it.  He got it for me to use in my art room.  Although I love photos taken of cats assisting artists in their studios, my babies help me a little too much.  I don't mind having them parade in front of the screen or jump on the keyboard while I'm typing, but I prefer that they sit and stay while I'm painting.  If you know cats, you know that is not going to happen:)  The cats have complete access to the room where we have our desktop.  However, I can escape to my art room with my tablet.  I've been playing with it a little - finding reference photos on the Internet.  Now, I have to find out how to have access to our photos using my tablet.  Jim is taking a nap right now, so that will have to wait.

Last week, we went to the lodge on Mt. Charleston for lunch.  We ate out on the deck, breathing in the fresh mountain air, surrounded by pine trees and hummingbirds.  It was heavenly.

Thank you for my tablet and thank you for the awesome lunch, Baby.
