Since last week...

when I was in New Mexico helping my friend Ann move in to her beautiful new home, I have returned and am playing catch up to get ready for the Artists of Point Richmond Holiday Fest and Sale. Hope to have some paintings, both figurative and dog portraits ready to go in time. In addition I'm working on some new sculptures which incorporate my paperclay birds, found objects and figures.

THis work in progress is titled Mother Nature: She's come Undone

...and Sunday I got into my cooking mode and made an apple pie and a veggie enchilada casserole. Called several friends to come and help me enjoy the feast, but everyone was already busy with other things. Hard to be spontaneous in this day and age when our lives are so filled. I think we're really missing a lot by not having more "free" time.

A Day Late and a doggie short.

This is Carmine in his Halloween Pumpkin costume.

Carmine has many seasonal costumes. He is with us now after his person recently passed away unexpectedly. We are keeping him until and if we can find a loving home for him as he is a very special, well behaved boy. He would do really well with someone who could devote a lot of time and love to him. If you think you might be a match with this wonderful dog, email me at susanshore@mac.com.


Since I last posted we had some rain in Richmond and with the second storm came a flooded basement. I won't bore you with all the photos. Let's just say it was a mess and very discouraging. Some losses and lots of work to clean up. And with all we're hearing about mold..yuk! The last photo is of the clogged storm drain... the culprit in why we were flooded.
