Hungry Lioness–Photo Art

Creating Photo Art is like telling a story–she is waiting for dinner at the zoo, but once she’s transformed, she’s on a hunt in the wild.

At the Omaha Zoo, she is waiting for dinner–totally different story!

Okay, I’m off to work on A Wolf’s Second Chance–Kayla’s story. I’m at 6000 words, yay! I managed to write 2,000 after little one went home. Just typing the notes now.

If I can really get after this (translates to: thinking of inspiring scenes that move the story forward), hope to have 20K by the end of the week!

Have a super day!

Pelicans at the Beach Photo Art

The pelicans were in a boring place, so creating this photo art and set them free.

Working on the new book. I wrote a synopsis and will turn it in today. Little one will be here soon, so I need to…well, she’s here and I just got back to this. 4,000 words on the new book and upward and onward! We’ve been putting away recycled Christmas bags, washing dishes, and sheets, feeding the birds, and putting out tea bags in the recycle bin. She loves to help me and it makes it more fun for me too.

Fixing breakfast. Her favorite? Hash Browns. Her mommy doesn’t make them and I love them too.

Have a fun-filled day!

Pelican Cove–at Least the Photo Art Appears that Way

Well, we did have violent thunderstorms throughout the night. We were under a tornado warning earlier in the day, and the tornado watches. But it seems like everything is okay.

The sky pictures I took, the flying pelicans over the Pacific Ocean in San Diego, the other pelicans at other various places! I used Daily Textures Coastal water.

I have to spend the day coming up with a synopsis for the new book–Kayla Wolff’s story. I wrote some more on it–not sure if one will be the right version, or both will be in the book. Often, they both are in the book. I just need to have a wild and fun and exciting and riveting incident to get things going!

Have a super great day!! No storms for us, but I have to write this synopsis.

Art Challenges

I won a challenge in December, so doing the January challenges. This one had to be from their color art pallet– pastel blues, beiges and whites.

This was another challenge, something you’ve done.

I’m off to work on Emerald and think more about the synopsis for Kayla’s story. I keep thinking about it. I’m losing sleep over it. Which doesn’t help. lol

Have a super fun day!

Lion, King of the Vultures

I had such a struggle to get WordPress to open so I could write my blog this morning. I just printed out coloring pages for little one to color. And I finished this lion photo I had taken at Cameron Park Zoo, Waco, Texas, some years ago. I changed the background and foreground to a Daily Texture texture and then used Topaz Impression to make it more of a painterly look.

I turned in edits on A Christmas Wolf Surprise so it can go to bookmaking, and I’m working on edits between trying to do stuff with little one. I’ve also been doing the challenges on Oscraps and this one was to create a border on one side with a photo and title. I used Lynne Anzelc’s lovely Safari for the lioness and cubs, flowers, grasses border and paper background.

I’m off to work. Still trying to come up with that elusive synopsis, though I have an idea brewing.

Have a lion of a day of fun.

Synopsis, Where Are You?

I don’t have writer’s block. I refuse to say I have writer’s block. I still haven’t come up with a synopsis for Kayla’s story. I read through the 2 books she’s in, along with Nate, trying to figure out anything that might pop out and give me a story. Didn’t happen. I started writing the story to get a feel of the characters. Still nothing. Did my usual–looking for writing prompts. Nada. Sigh.

Then I got the edits for A Christmas Wolf Story due Jan 8th, so started working on those. Have to take the dogs in for flu shots this morning. And grooming this afternoon. Granddaughter will be here during the day tomorrow, and overnight and for Saturday for her mommy and daddy’s anniversary–sooooo, I need to get everything done pronto.

Story muse, where are you? But no wonder, right????

Still working on edits for Emerald Isle of Mists also. I put it up on preorder at Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09PNT21PK

I’ll have the print version and the ebook available on all sites soon for preorder.

Did Emerald edits this morning–doing 20 pages every night, back to A Christmas Wolf Surprise. I’ve finished 85 pages and have 140 to go!

Have a great day! Mine will be hectic! I’ll probably get groceries while the dogs are groomed. My cupboards and fridge are bare.

Leopard Eye

I used Aaron Blaise’s brushes to create this. So much fun. I’m not usually very good with brushes/stamps. I bought several as they were on sale, so will play with them to see how they do. Or how I can do!

Okay, I’m off to figure out the synopsis for Kayla’s story. Emerald Isle of Mists is done, just editing it.

Have a super fun day!!

Cardinal in the Garden

Cold temps today again. Little one here so I’ve been busy this morning. This is a photo I took of a male cardinal with a sunflower seed in his mouth.

So have I mentioned my crazy little dog lately? Tanner, well, neither dogs are allowed in my bed. But I caught him on my bed the other day when I thought he’d slipped away to sleep in his crate. Last night I’m working away on my story, Max is sleeping on my lap as usual, and Tanner is? In his crate, I thought. So I hear this panicked barking in the bedroom. I’m thinking he found a dog biscuit wedged under his crate and he can’t get to it. I go in there–no Tanner. He’s not by the crate, in the crate, anywhere in my bedroom. And he’s not barking.

Then I see movement on my bed, under the covers, and I realize he somehow trapped himself under the covers, headed for the foot of the bed, and has no way out.

Which made me wonder, does he have claustrophobia? Well, if he didn’t have it before, he might have it now. Will it stop him from sneaking into my bed? Maybe. lol

Or not!

Have a fun day!!

Wild Sea Lion of La Jolla

I added the clouds from another photo I had taken and added some of Daily Texture Cape Textures. I loved how the sea lion was so expressive.

Okay, I’m moving slow this morning. It’s soooooooo cold. We went from 82 degrees to 29 and a body can’t get used to that in such a short amount of time. The storm roared in at 4 a.m. this morning. Even my dogs do not want to go out in this cold for long. lol

I’m off to work on Emerald Isle of Mists. Back to the regular schedule tomorrow. Hope your day is great!!
