Always get your bubbles from a 5-year-old!

~


October is Happy Birthday time in my family for my granddaughter turns a very big 5 tomorrow. Here you see her engaging in one of her very favorite activities in the world: blowing beautiful bountiful bubbles!

Pop!

Yes, Violet has been practicing her bubble skills for years now. Perhaps you saw this blog's helpful Bubble Blowing Tutorial from when she was only 3 years old. It's quite basic yet handy for those whose skills may need a smidgeon of sharpening.

With Violet, it's always Bubble Season!

Penelope Ponders. Do you?

~


Today I'm doing some pondering on various topics since it's the 7th Day of the week and all. You know, stuff like: the state of the planet, my true condition before God - that sort of thing.

So in solidarity with those who tend to ponder (regularly or occasionally) here is one of my older drawings Penelope Ponders.

Now you won't find Penelope's portrait in the Jude Cowell Art Shop but you will discover several other fanciful figure studies with a sprinkling of Cosmic Art as well so drop by when you may!

For more 24/7 Art browsing try my Boudoir Blossoms Art Shop (for 17+ please) or my Blue Tiger Art Shop for kids' stuff including T-shirts for your cute little tiger. And if you scroll down the Blue Tiger Art page you'll spy some Pattillo Armadillo items including Pattillo starring on his own 2011 Calendar!

Been busy w blogs, cats, and Art - howbowchu?

Whew! Today I have updated my political limerick blog Lim's Limericks with Mr. A. Cat's new ditty concerning the November 2010 elections. You may notice that Lim's Limericks is proud to have two Followers - well, it says three but one is me. And if I can figure out how to repair that mistake, it will properly reflect two extremely discerning readers.

Not that I'm no fan of Mr. A. Cat, or of my roomie Lim, the famous feline chef who prepares all my fishy din dins unless and until he's in a snit of miffdom to get his way about something. Then I can starve for all Lim cares! Are all cats despots such as Lim? Most are, I think. Libby Kitty has certainly been on a tear lately: her behavior has turned quite unexpected. As I type she's snoozin' in her newest favorite location: behind the microwave. Odd, if you ask me.

Also updated today is my Political-Mundane Astrology blog Stars Over Washington with a post linking you to a list of campaign donors to our special-interest-promoting congressional candidates compliments of the excellent Mother Jones along with info on the upcoming and difficult transit of Pluto opposing US natal Sun (Sun = the leader in Mundane charts.)

As for Two Hours today, the list of Mythology of Astrology's smaller bodies has been expanded by one: the very interesting and hauntingly musical Orpheus. Simply scroll down the sidebar for the list (it's just after Astrology Faves.)

Plus, the detail/image you see above is from one of my newer drawings, Aubergine, who is actually one of the glamorous pin-up girls in a new Cosmic Lilith Art Calendar 2011 so check our her full portrait if you wish!
