Trick or Treat!

Aren't these Halloween bears adorable? The artist is my sister Lisa Berry, also known as Feltypants. After many years of quietly painting in her home studio, Lisa recently started showing her work at art shows, benefits, and galleries. I'm so proud of her for putting herself out there ... it's scary as heck to open yourself up to other people eyes.

My other favorite is her musical cat series, also available as note cards. I dig that "Lust for Life" cat.

Okay, I'm saying good-bye again, this time for real, while I move to the new place. Talk to you (hopefully) next week.

So long, farwell, auf weidersein (spelling?), goodbye.

Hope the move goes well!

Love your sister's artwork - so fun! You know the saying (from John Irving's Hotel New Hampshire), "Life is serious, but art is fun."

Obviously I can't spell tonight:

*Farewell

*Auf Wiedersehen (yep, you know I Googled that)

I'm too a-type to let that go...

Thanks Stacy for posting my cards, and thanks everyone for your cheers. I really enjoy doing these little drawings and the cats seem to be my natural subject. :)

Such cute cards...and you're right to be proud of your sister, it is hard to put yourself out there as I well know! I have an opening tonight and I can feel the nervousness now...so I give her a huge pat on the back for her courage!
