Picalo Giulam

It was a weekend which started off with a neurologists appointment for my migraines...
Followed up with a day of cave spelunking and zip-lining with two of my best friends...
followed by a rainy day stroll through our local farmers market for honey & veggies...
finishing off with a Sunday filled with homemade soup, reading, stitching and romping bunnies.

Now, it's Monday...ahhhh I love Mondays.
I am sitting here soaking up a beautiful sunny morning,
feeling so very very glad to be in my studio amidst whimsy and colour.

And I finally finished this super dashing cutie...
his name???

Picalo Guilam


He told me that he's never without a striped vest nor some kind of beautiful feather in his hat...
my oh my what a dapper little gentle-bun, don't ya think?

This handsome little fella is done in coloured pencil and mixed in with an acrylic background
and sits on top of a bright orange ribbon strip, all on canvas.
The original is available.

Today I am working on a fish and a possum in this same series...Such fun!

Join me on Wednesday for some cool photos from a great concert we recently saw.

I've had not head pain for 6 days straight now...
ahhh, It's going to be a wonderful day, don't ya think?

Is it image or any antique work? On the screen it shows that it is painting.

But no problem what type of it? It is a great work.
