Azaleas, cats, collage in progress...and finished!

I have a medley of pictures today.  The azaleas have been going bonkers outside, so I got some real close-ups.  I might have posted some last spring, but you don't remember that. :)  Then of course there are the cats, Bailey my "heart throb" and Tabby the neighboring "ham."  They get into everything.

I finished my mermaid collage and put it in that old window.  The collage is fabric that I painted with my hands, literally, and then applied more fabric and paint on top of that.  The face is wholly painted with acrylic paints.  She looks happy, doesn't she?  Why wouldn't she in a warm sea among the fishes... :)

Hello,
I stumbled on your site as I was "bloghopping" this morning and I love it. Your flower pics are wonderful, and I especially like to see your feline friends in the pictures. I laughed out loud at your handpainted :) cloth. That is what I look like when I am painting, but I never thought about taking it to the sink.

Oh, look at your mermaid!! She is absolutely gorgeous, Maria! You are so talented, my friend. Love all the shots, they are so good. Glad you have flowers, we woke up to a half-foot of snow this morning. Can you believe it?
