Under The Weather With Some New Pendants......

I have a little sicko in my house, poor little Dudley has the flu bug. I'm trying to keep him company, help nurse him back to feeling 100% all while getting some painting done. Don't think I haven't been keeping my fingers crossed that Orchid and Willow are not going to be hit with the same bug. Besides not liking to see any of my little guys sick, there are few things more horrible then 3 sick dogs all at once..

Moving away from my sick little patient for a moment, I have managed to paint some new pendants for my ETSY shop in time for the arrival of Mother's Day. I've been painting some very different designs, things I haven't tried before.

Believe it or not, I've been thinking retro as I know it is a popular style that lots of folks like these days so......

Some retro colors and styling for some of the pendants............

While others turned out.....well, just plain groovy!!!!

This one I think is aptly named - "First Day Of Spring".

As you can see, I've been working on some black silhouettes as well.

These will soon be added to my ETSY site: http://www.artfulpendants.etsy.com/ . Dudley thanks you all in advance for your get well wishes....try to have a groovy kinda' weekend.... stay well everyone.

Hi Ruth and Dudley,

I do hope that Dudley is feeling better and that your other babies do not catch the flu bug.
Your "retro" pendants are wonderful and very timely with the retro look so popular. Ruth, you continue to amaze me with your fresh new ideas for your art.
Have a wonderful week.

Bentley sends get well wishes to Dudley and a tail wag to everyone.

Blessings,
