Win prizes and help me win a trip to NYC!!!!

Help me and win goodies!
Way #1 - Wishlist my trip on trazzler and get your name entered in the random drawing every 3 nights to get a goody
Way #2 - Get 5 of your friends to wishlist my trip. For every set of 5 friends, I'll send you a free print. Got 20 friends? That would be 4 free prints!! See below for details...

I was nominated as a semifinalist on trazzler for a story I wrote about one of the places I went to on my honeymoon. (Before my life as an artist, I wanted to be a travel writer). If you wishlist me, I'll put your name in a drawing, and every three days I'll draw a name and send that person a goody in the mail. The list of prizes include an original painting, cards with envelopes, and prints. If you win, you are welcome to choose what kind of picture you like. I don't want to send a cat to a dog lover. At the very end of the contest, September 14th after 8 pm, I'll put ALL the names in for a drawing of an original painting.

Sound like fun? Let's get me a $10,0000 trip to NYC!!! If I win, I'll send EVERYONE a goody! So go to and click on the green wishlist button under the picture of the Yulong River. You'll have to sign up for Trazzler first, but if you have a Facebook account, you can directly connect and be a member automatically, so it's very easy! The first drawing for a goody will be tomorrow night. After you're all signed up, go to my trip and wishlist me! It will show who has wishlisted me, so it is from that list that I will draw names for the free goody. If you have five friends wishlist me, and they tell me they are your friend, I'll send you a free print of your choice. For every set of five friends, I'll send you a free print.

New Watercolor Paintings - Siamese Cat and Horse plus low carb cake : )

Friend me on Facebook at for more of my art adventures!

Here is the parrot painting I've been working on, or is it a Macaw? Someone on Facebook mentioned it looked like a Macaw.

Align CenterI just started working on this new horse portrait tonight.

Hopefully I'll be done with this siamese cat painting by the middle of next week and it can go to its new home!

Today was my mom's birthday so I didn't get much painting done. But I did make this cake...

My mom and I are both hypoglycemic, so this is a low carb cake made with soy protein, egg protein and stevia for sweetener (and other stuff). The frosting is sugar free, made with butter, cream cheese and stevia. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Happy Birthday Momba!

Your chance for a free print...

Here's your chance to get a free print I did of an applehead siamese cat. I listed it on a new, fun website called Listia. I always like to use my art and painting to support great new ideas, so I thought I'd share the site with my readers : ) Just click here or on the cat!

Here's progress on the parrot painting, (a recent winner of my photo art contest)

I'm also reading a great book on the artist de Kooning right now. It won the Pulitzer Prize. Click on this text to see it on Amazon...

Do I look intelligent?
