I'll begin by sending out my apologies to everyone for not visiting last Friday's submissions. Unfortunately matters in the family have become more serious and a strain therefore I was obligated to set aside my art and deal with the pressing situation and by Wednesday night I was able to get a break.
 I sat down and watched "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with M and painted ......for therapy; needless to say, not enough time to complete it and messed up the little pooch I had painted. So for now this is a WIP and hopefully by this time next week there should be a little critter in the landscape. Again, I'm posting this painting this morning and then I'm off with more errands to run for the day. Will be visiting later this evening and throughout the weekend. .... most definitely!

Out of the complete weekend and week I was able to get in a Saturday morning jaunt to the Annual Bishop's Mills Community garage sale and this is the Treasure I found!!!!!!!

Meet " Ranger the Therapy Cat "....Isn't he a handsome fellow? His owner was kind enough to let me photograph him and Ranger was quite patient in letting me take ample photos in making sure I captured his best assets...I think I did!

Ranger who happens to be a Maine Coon Cat ; one of my favourite breed of cats , seems to adore his stroller, even my kids didn't stay in theirs so contently....I see why he is such a lovely soul for therapy!

Quite a patient cat...thanks for letting me take your pic Ranger.

And this has to be my favourite! Wow, seriously need to learn my camera....just luv when some pics turn out so good...I feel I'm improving with my photo skills.....although I still don't know how the buttons work....haha!

A drive in the country with a camera on hand just in case and hunting for lost treasures works wonders for me, great therapy. Discovering Ranger was a welcome surprise and even better I was lucky enough to capture the moment because I wasn't too lazy to bring the camera along.

What is good Therapy?

#1 Time spent with family, human and furry or feathered or whatever
#2 Driving in the country and meeting interesting folks
#3 Enjoying a healthy outdoor snack
#4 A Camera for capturing Treasures beyond our immediate reach
#5 Enjoying all the elements of Spring....Life

.....These are just a few of the things that make me happy....the secret to a well lived life.

So here is this week's submission.......

"A Patch Of Blue "  Inks and Acrylics on canvas.


A Little Heart

 I'm sure you've guessed where the name came boo -boo ...haha!

Until next week Happy Painting..... Annabelle

If you are just visiting here, do think about dropping in at Paint Party Friday; I'm sure you'll linger a while and maybe participate....good therapy, I promise!

p.s. I guess I forgot to show my recent discoveries at the local yard sales....will post them soon.
