I'm getting ready for a visit from my grandson Brendan from Friday through Monday. I'm planning activities to keep him entertained. Just wish I had a fraction of his energy!

Brian is in charge of HyperiCon, so he and Melissa will be there all weekend working and having fun. Here's a link to it if you'd like to check it out. You can also follow it on Facebook and Twitter. Melissa always does the art work for the poster. Check out her website HERE. This is the one for this year.

This is one of my favorite paintings she's done. "The Astronomer"

And this one - "Cold Water" which I call "The Depressed Mermaid"

Melissa's titles are infinitely better than the ones I make up. It's just what I do for some reason.

Well, we won't worry if we don't hear from you for a couple days! Very nifty artwork.

Melissa is so talented. And I LOVE how Auntie Flame has given her own names to Melissa's artwork! :)

Melissa deals with it. :-) She gave me prints of "Hidden Faces" for Christmas one year. I was so excited and said, "Oh good! "The Leaf people!" At least I still remember their real names most of the time.

Sometimes I'm able to get on here and comment, but if you don't hear from me, you know why.

Joy, I absolutely love the first painting. So much color, texture, and movement.
