An oldie but goodie. This old man Pugsley like most Pugs, sat obediently for his close up. Transformed this photo into a painted portrait with love. Vibrant colors. Loose strokes. Folk art whimsy. Acrylic on 12X12 Canvas board. Pugsley boy.

Norcross Pop-Ins New York. discovered at an estate sale back in the day. NIB. They had two sets of each. For a whopping .10 cents each. So unique. So fun. So whimsical. And oh so psychedelic! Totally from the 1960's era. You'd have to get all gussied up in your fancy fineries to attend this type of swingin soiree. Super neat. In love with the graphics! I predict a whale of a time indeed.

Xue Wawa . They bring such delight and cuteness in their paintings that I was immediately drawn to them. The raccoon painting was the ultimate inspiration! And forever will my guy live on this canvas of mine. Baby raccoon LOVE!

Stavanger Flint in Norway. This was a purchase on eBay years ago. The damage on the top and crazing only decreases the value, which does not bother me. I like her just the way she is. Sweet and maniacal girl from Norway. This week marks Norway's Day of Independence. (17th of May, 1814) Girls were not permitted to celebrate or march in the children's parade for many years-only boys were allowed. Seriously? My how times have changed. So sharing this work of art is fitting. Girls rule. Boys drool. Nordic Folk Art Love.

eBay for nothing years ago. So now I'm reselling it back. Feels good to sell to someone who may start a new vintage collection of their own. In photography always remember: focus, aim, steady and clean! Retro Photo vibes. Neat.

Mexican bird art was found at the Goodwill for $7.99 each. Way over my budget. But, I love unique vintage finds and of course birds. I find a lot of artwork in pairs. Nice to find that people don't break them up and I happen to discover them. Still in great condition with some minor wear. The backing is sweet with a message to Lois from Mom. I'll celebrate Cinco De Mayo and promote Mexican culture with posting beautiful Vintage Bird Folk Art from Mexico. And of course eat veggie tacos. Food. Love.

May the 4th, this is suitable. The poster of planet Hoth and the making of ESB is in rough condition so it's totally not sell able. I like it because one, it's my fave sci fi movie and B, it's partly shot in Norway. Cold and beautiful. Plus the graphics are pretty awesome. The ride along lizard dewback critter from Kenner Toys 1979, is a vintage toy I've had for years and because my daughter Leia, yes, you heard right, she WAS absolutely named after Leia Organa, colored on him as a kid it's kinda sentimental. Plus his head moves back and forth when you wiggle his tail. I just need to install an action figure on him. Then he shall be complete. Ahhh the love I have for some vintage toys. Happy May the 4th!

Olympus and a long lens. 40-150mm. I've always shot with Olympus and Canon and found both to be useful for different reasons. I love them both. The Oly is way more user friendly. Super easy to shoot on the fly. But not as many lenses available. Not good. And not as fast as the Canon. Canon is fast and I have way more lenses to work with. My fave is the 50mm 1.4. Dream lens is 85mm portrait lens. It'll be a loaner one day for play. But, why dream when I can just do it? Hmmm. Portraits of a Pomeranian. Love.

Lil Bub has been one of my favorite cat animals to follow on instagram. Her precious purrsonality has captured all of our hearts. She's Royal (still working on the crown part) and deserves to be treated as such. Of course she's got loads of precious purrrsonality. The fantastic photos of her prove that. And cat whimsy. I don't know her purrsonaly (haha) but I'm willing to bet she's a whimsical cat. Which I tried to capture with the fun 'spatter dash' elements (fave word to describe some of my paintings) and lost and found pops of color. This is my version of her. Lil Bub Love.
