More Art and a Virtual Vacation?

So if anyone knows my mom, she is always looking at art, or collecting art of some sort in her travels.  Well, she only had to drive around the corner from home for this art!  These are mom's newest acquisitions.  They are of a seagull in St. Thomas, and are painted by the mom of a friend of my mom, local TX artist, Nancy Berkhouse.   

This one is called "Party Bird".  It caught mom's eye, because the flower looks like a hibiscus, mom's fave flower, and it looked a scene in the Caribbean.
CocoBean:  Did someone say "Party"?

This one is called "The Lifeguard".  
 Armani:  Did someone say birdie??

 Mom takes pictures of birds wherever she travels and she took pics of birds and the beautiful water in  St Thomas too, last time she was there.  We think mom is taking some sort of virtual beach vacation in her head lately, to escape work!

Mom's newest art goes along with the same theme from her last art  purchase back in May 2012, a pretty art glass, from when she was on the beach in Sidmouth, England. 

Life's a Beach, or mom wishes it were!

 OOOOH, one more thing we want to mention.  Mom has been looking to get a painting done of all of us cats, and she is going to commission Nancy Berkhouse (website:  to create it for us!  
We are very excited!

Our mommy takes pictures of seagulls when she goes to the coast. We'd rather have her bring one of them back home! Those paintings are really nice though and we love the lifeguard one and not just because Armani is there but that did help! That art glass from Sidmouth is gorgeous and our mommy has loved it since she first saw it!

My human needs to take more bird photos - or even better, bird videos, so I can have more Bird TV!
