Judy Pose

My Aunt Judy continues to stay young with yoga and t'ai chi. She is an all-around great person. One of her daughters (thus, one of my cousins, if you're keeping track) commissioned this for her as a present. I had to paint her wearing black. She always wears black.

What do you put on a long, narrow feather? A long narrow boat!

Bump, Set, Spike, Meow

Dogs vs. Cats: The cats can jump higher, but they keep having to take timeouts for hairballs. The dogs know more tricks, but they keep getting distracted by smells. Could be anyone's game.

Squash: It's Not Just a Vegetable.

This was a Christmas present for a second cousin who enjoys playing squash. I was on the tennis team in high school and I've played a little racquetball, pingpong and badminton, but squash is a racket sport I've never had the chance to try.
