Alien Canning

This one is meant to be cheesy.  What if we were all abducted by aliens and used for food storage? Yeah, I know, it's lame. I thought it was funny but not everyone shares my strange sense of humor. My husband posed for the aliens and it's my husband and I in the jars.

Never Enough - The Last Cookie

Some cruel mother gave her three children four cookies.  Which child will get the cookie first?  My vote's the blonde kid.

Cat vs Spider

This is the second digital painting of the cat series.  There will be more to come.  I've decided that I should do enough for a calendar.  I'll call the series: "How Camber the Kitty Exhausted His Nine Lives."  Or something to that effect.  Yes, Camber is the name of my cat.  If you that's weird, get this.  There are PEOPLE named Camber.  Between my friends, husband and I, we've spotted at least 3.  We chose the name "Camber" because it's a random word I found in the dictionary that ended up being an engineering term.  It's means arch or bend (for heavier load bearing).  It was suiting because my husband's an engineer, and Camber's always arching his back.  I wonder if all those girls named Camber know what their name means.  I bet their moms just thought it was cute cause it sounds like Cambrie or Amber. Fools.  In any case, Camber's the sexiest cat model ever. 

Cat vs Crow-On a dark FOGGY night

This is my first full-out digital painting.  I got tired of painting happy families so I decided to feed my cat obsession.
