I am back!
What a long time between my last blog.  It is nice to be back in the studio.  My youngest just stated pre-k yesterday, and the other two are getting settled with the new school year.  Getting ready for school is a full-time job.  Holy cow!  Getting new clothes picked out, shoes, school supplies!  Tons of school supplies!  Anyway, I am happy to say that all this is done and I can take a few hours a day now for my other creative side.

I LOVE, LOVE seahorses!  And I have been wanting to paint one.  They are so enchanting and fascinating!
Here is a little trivia for you.  Did you know that the male seahorse carries the babies?   Cool huh!  They are the only animal in the whole animal kingdom that does so.  They don't have teeth or stomachs.  Their digestion process is so quick they  need to constantly eat to survive.  They can eat 3000-4000 brine shrimp in one day!
Seahorses mate for life, and  usually under a full moon, and utter musical sounds while mating.  Wow, those male seahorses and awesome.  They carry the babies and they are romantic!
