This month's winner is A.Scattering!
Please send us your mailing address and T-shirt size and we'll be happy to send you your prize!This morning SHE was having a poodle around the gallery and asked me the following question:
"Are you aware that the dress in this picture is the same size as the iceberg?"
Me: "Odd-viously, I am aware".
HER: "HaHa..I love the way you see the world...not much rhyme or reason to anything...everything is a bit doolally!"
Me: "Yes, SOOoooo very bizarre...and what about your dinner tonight? Your cherished lemon-basil pasta might just include honeydew melon and pickled beets....no rhyme or reason to anything! That's ME!"

These are 3 of my Teeny-Weeny-Shiny-Tiny Sneaky Paintings
Top Left "Portrait of my Darling" Papa Luigi by Cara Kansala
Top Right "Itchy's Gift"
Bottom Middle "Scratchy is a Doll"I love things that are either HUGE or TEENY WEENY. Middle-sized things make me sleepy. I love over-sized sofas, giant mugs of coffee, massive, cuddly dogs and huge umbrellas. I love teensy weensy tea cup sets, miniature dogs (why aren't there tiny, miniature cats?), bonsai trees and hummingbirds.
A few weeks ago, I secretly ordered dozens of tiny canvases from Curry's.
2 inches by 1 inch.....so WEE! In between my commissions and orders, I have been painting these little darlings and hiding them away. Cats, family portraits and eensy landscape scenes. Yesterday, SHE found my stash and the following questions were asked:
1. Why are you painting these tiny pictures?
2. What are you going to do with them?
3. Is this an efficient use of your time?
1. They make me smile.
2. I do not know.
3. I certainly hope not....please refer back to answer #1.

|"Mari Mac" by Cara Kansala...Hand-Painted Acoustic Guitar|
Written and performed by the talented duo...AND you can buy the song on iTunes!
Sara is HER cousin. Sadly, SHE did not get any of the singing ability in the family. Even the cats run for cover when she is doing Her Steven Tyler impersonation. Sara, Her cousin, is incredibly talented. We all have our gifts.
SHE is reading over my shoulder and said that I won't be getting any gifts for a very long time.

|Detail: Edith's Lupins by Cara * Acrylic on Canvas|
|Lift Off for S.Squissage!!|
|HER Pirate Ship Coming in for a Landing|
|Clio and Jazz want tiny dog sized kites of their own....|
(Note: SHE pointed out and thought it funny that I forgot to put a string on the kite that is flying in the painting above. SHE thinks it is VERY funny that the laundry and the chimney smoke are going in different directions.
I think it is funny that SHE will be having cold cereal for dinner and NOT the promised Lemon Pasta! HMMPH!
