Decided to make a little play place for our 2 little girls, Zen and Shimmey to play in. They took right to it too. I tell ya, if we had to get saddled with a kitty, we got lucky that it was this kitty, she's been great so far. I guess we were owed something for all the baggage the boy Dunkin came with. Now if I can only figure out how to keep the boy occupied.

I had a little computer mishap and..... well let's just say the rest of this illustration doesn't exist anymore. This was from a painting I was working on in the application painter. Every once and awhile I do something really stupid, and this was one of those times.

Let me tell you a little about my life with Dunkin, I'll start out buy just saying: he really is a sweet boy, loves people, but hates other dogs!! There's something built into the wiring of terriers, a stubborn focus that's hard to break, and even harder to change. Whether the boy knows it or not, he's slowly wearing me down, just when I think he's given up the fight, and that he's made a conscious decision to be an obedient doggie, he reverts right back to stubborn aggressive terrier. My only consolation is that I'll most likely out live him, and I can watch him take his last breath on his death bed; Bittersweet, I tell you! :) Long live the Dunk

Well, it's official, my wife has turned me into a complete sap. We rescued a poor little stray kitten a couple of weeks back, she had been hanging out at an office building just around the block and we were leaving a can of cat food for her each day. One day, against my better judgement, we were able to catch her. So I guess we've got ourselves a cat now. She was pretty skinny except for her belly full of worms, but we've got that all cleared up now, and she's starting to put on some weight. We've named her Zen, "Zen Fay Pierro", Zen because she's very calming to watch, the world seems to melt away, Fay because we got her off the street before the tropical storm Fay came to town and rained for days. Now, if I can only get our dog Duncan not to kill the poor thing. She is sweet though......... See I'm getting really sappy here.

Here's a paper clay sculpture. After a few disappointing disasters in the kiln, I've decided to start sculpting in paper clay to give my sculptures a better chance of surviving the inferno of the kiln. Building the sculpture is step one, there are many other steps left to have a completed piece of art. Drying, firing , and glazing. Good luck Dark Angel!
