"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

~*Bliss*~ New Original Corgi Art!

What brings you bliss? Acting on small little creative sparks are one of the things that bring me bliss. Meet Cinderella. She usually holds tape measures and ribbons and Corgi leashes in my studio. I decided to deck her out for Fall. Who can resist sparkly orange lights and frothy black tulle? Not I. Doesn't she look smashing? She knows she does.

Say hello to my little friend Twiggy who is hanging around in my studio for Halloween. Yes, she has a tinsel boa around her neck. (Don't you judge me!)

Someone really needs to feed her. (hee hee)

Here is Bailey posing with my newest creation. Bailey just turned 14 years old a couple of weeks ago. I think she really misses Indy and Bridget. It makes me sad. Stella and Amy literally run circles around her and I think they make her crazy. They are wicked Corgi imps.

Bailey got prime rib on her birthday. ♥ She said it was pure bliss. Which leads me to my painting. I've entitled it simply "Bliss." It looks like a Corgi full of sheer joy and contentment. A little reminder for us all to seek out that which bring joy to our lives. Or as Tasha Tudor always reminded us, to "Take Joy!"
I have gone from one extreme to the other in creating this piece. What I mean is that usually I work in miniatures and my Corgis are typically about 2" tall. This piece is a BIG one, for me. It is 16" x 20" and I am completely in love with it. What do you think?

Hello Cathy,

I was checking out some of the new followers to my blog (thank you by the way) and just had to comment on this post. I adore your Bliss. Now we're a kitty family, but kitties have that look too and you have so captured it in a simplicity that is just enchanting! Happy belated birthday to the bowwow beauty!

Thank you for the gaiety you've filled my heart with this morning. :)
