Hedgehogs!

I was looking through old photos with Matt (we found them in my dad's basement up in KC during our trip) and came across some early pictures of us together. I should post some of them ;)

I found some ones of our first pet together - "Reznor" my little hedgehog. He passed away many years ago. We had a cement headstone for his grave that looked just like him, and we took it along with us when we moved to Florida - he guards our front door now, right inside our house =)

He was a good little guy - a very strange pet, and often kind of grumpy, but I know he loved me. I miss him a lot, and I probably talk about him still everyday.

I've always had a soft spot for hedgehogs since then, and thought I'd try painting some - man - they are quite complicated to paint with all of those quills!

Today for a change I thought I'd paint outdoors! Sorry I couldn't figure out how to get the webcam that far away (need more USB extensions maybe?), hehe. So I've been painting all day on a new painting with a bunch of hedgehogs in it! It was a lot of fun painting outside - I sat on our patio furniture under the gazebo and listened to music on my MP3 player, it was very relaxing. I'm going to try to do that now and then, to mix things up a little. It took a little longer since I didn't have my trusty hairdryer to speed up the drying, hehe - I'd say I'm about 1/2 way done. I moved inside now (getting way too dark out there to work) - it's up on my painting table if you'd like to take a peek HERE! Hopefully I'll have it all finished tomorrow, it's simply ADORABLE!!! I've got some other stuff to catch up on - I might be working on it a little later tonight though.... I'm also working on a commission for a candy store (how fun is that?).

So far the computer is working wonderfully - I still have to re-download a lot of stuff and move some back-up files onto the new drive. Fun.

Okay, off I go..........
