“CATS GALORE” A LITTLE HAND MADE BOOK OF CAT WATERCOLORS

 

“CATS GALORE!” A LITTLE HANDMADE BOOK I MADE FILLED WITH CATS GALORE WATERCOLORS! Some of the cat watercolors are embellished with paper flowers made out of rice paper and hand painted & bejeweled. Other cats have washi tape embellishments or punched paper flowers, hearts or birds. There are about 40 cats I think & it was a very fun project. More “Cats Galore” to come!

HARBOR SEALS PUPPING SEASON 2016 – A PLAYFUL LITTLE PUP!

HARBOR SEAL PUPPING SEASON IN LA JOLLA, SAN DIEGO IS IN FULL SWING NOW!  The Harbor seal colony has 15 healthy, thriving & playful pups as of yesterday.  All are bonded with attentive moms & are delightful to watch.  There are more pregnant seals arriving everyday, too!  Here’s a few photos of a pup enjoying seal life on an eel-grass covered reef at low tide.  Mom is so patient.  The pup nurses enthusiastically!  The tide starts to come in, the seals raise their tails & heads to stay dry.  The pups are on their way to being a member of the La Jolla Harbor seal colony.  It is a delight and a privilege to be able to observe them.
