New 30 Paintings in 30 Days Starts today… with CREAMSICLE

Good morning… Just a quick post. I’m off to get started painting, but I painted this gal so I’d be ready for DAY 1 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days…

This is CREAMSICLE. I painted her on 12″ x 9″ x 1/2″ gallery-wrapped canvas in acrylics.

Day 1: 30 in 30… Creamsicle…

I’ll be back tomorrow…. Hope you’ll follow along.

Painting, Reading and Begging for Treats

We have decided on our INTENTIONS for the year.  Lou intends to paint, read, and write.   Whew… sounds like work, work, work … to us.

We (that’s Bugsy, me and Checkers), however, have decided to spend our time on a worthwhile endeavor:  BEGGING FOR TREATS.

To ensure our success, you are welcome to send us all the treats that you can fit in a mail-able box.  Thanks….

this is my, “Don’t you wanna give me a treat?” look. Good, right?

My smile is “Treat-Worthy”, right?

I prefer the straght-forward approach. “GIVE ME TREATS… please.”

We are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog. Please feel free to join in.

Have a great day.

Hugs, Knuckles

Merry Christmas one and all….

I’m not really wearing this. … HAHA… it’s just sitting on my back. Believe me, nothing goes over my head.

Anyway, just taking one for the team to wish you a Merry Christmas.  Hope you have a great holiday and that we’ll all have a very Happy New Year filled with toys, treats and love.

Hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH (Lou)

December is here already…. yikes…

Living in Florida, it’s often hard to get in the Christmas spirit.  Yesterday, we decorated the condos on the outside and it looks tropically beautiful.  Now, I just need to do something on the inside; however, with the boys, it’ll be minimal and unbreakable.

Have been working on some paintings lately.  Here’s the one I painted this week.


It’s available on my new site. on FASO… Yes, it’s the end of the year and the beginning of a new year… Out with the old and in with the new. So, I’ve switched back to a more comfortable site…. You can visit this painting here, if you’re interested…

The boys have been busy trying to convince me to get a Christmas tree.  That’s definitely not going to happen… Can’t imagine!

Anyway, we’re participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.  Sorry we’ve missed a couple of weeks.  Please join in if you like.  It’s put on by The Cat on My Head blog.

Knuckles… up close and personal…


Have a great week….

hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and Lou

Good morning… About a month ago I began transitioning to becoming a vegan.  I’m reading lots of books and articles and watching videos to bring my brain up to speed with this.  Of course, I thought… Why not start a blog to store all this information?

So I have done just that and opened a Group on Facebook too.  So, I’m just stopping by this morning to invite all of you  to come by and follow the Blog and/or join the Facebook group. You don’t have to be vegan to follow these sites…. vegan, vegetarian, or just have an interest in the topics… you are all invited.

Here’s the info on how to get there…

BLOG:  The Helpful Blogger

FACEBOOK GROUP: The Helpful Vegan   (for the facebook group, just click on the join button on the facebook group page and within a couple of hours at the most, I’ll let you in.)


Thanks…. and see you there….
