- This is a candid photograph of my newest little friend....Mr./Mrs./Ms squirrel. It is very sweet and brave that it comes and snoops in whatever I have been doing. It was an empty package from it's favorite biodegradable, unsalted peanuts.
You can find this as a greeting card, note card, bookmark, various size prints, decorator pillow, tee-shirt and many more items on http://www.artbymarilyn.net looped to etsy.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Marilyn

It sees me and runs right up my foot to say, "Hello". The little squirt actually takes the peanut from me by my fingers and it''s paws or fingers are sooo tiny. Like my daughter before she passed. If I can't get it out of the bag fast enough the little squirt jumps about 2 inches and grabs it. It is an amazing experience. It wants it's cheeks full and it is fun to spoil the little squirt.
I guess I would rather they go away sometimes but I just haven't the heart to trap and kill them.

I painted this from a ceramic planter I got for my mom one Thanksgiving day a long time ago. She was so pleased. It is a colorful planter. It still sits in the living room on a table.
Have a nice Thanksgiving day. You can find this in http://www.artbymarilyn.net

He was killed by a farmer as a red fox in the, "Town of Primrose", by a stupid farmer and my nasty first-cousin Ronnie Johnson laughed about it and got a kick out of it. When he was asked what farmer and we could go get, "Ikea", the insulin spoiled brat refused to tell us. I have always despised his abuse personality but this was the straw that broke the camels back. His mother and father used my mom and dad for monies and anything else they could get and my parents were patient with them because they were kind and tried to help them. At my father's death, they still owe us and never us $320.00 for their store bill.
I wonder what they will do in Salvation. I just hope "Ikea" died instantly instead of just laying out in no-man's land hurt.
Here's to you beautiful cat. You are never forgotten.

Enjoy and have a beautiful day. Marilyn
Ike was named after, as my mom said, whomever becomes president, "Eisenhower", or, "Stevenson". He became, "Ike". Ike was well mannered, loved kids, so patient, liked attention and was a huge ball of angora golden and white fur. A bit white tip on his tail. He required a lot of brushing but we always did it so we could keep, "Ike". Also, know as , "Ikea".
"Ike", had the run of the neighborhood and he was well-liked. I have many wonderful stories of his ventures to the neighbor's houses.
At the end of his life he looked like a fox and I am will always be upset that the farmers in the country shot him as he looked like a fox . We were only told that and not were he was laying. It is just another reason I never liked my cousin, Ronnie Johnson, because he refused to tell us were, "Ike", was and he was one of the cruelest people I have ever met. He laughed at your pain.
I can just hope, "Ike", died instantly without any suffering. Here's to you, "Ike". If there is a cat Heaven he is in it. Here's to all helpless creatures wherever they are that they get comfort and kindness in this world because they can't speak for themselves.
I call the little one...spot because it has spots from fighting over it's tiny body. And look at the stripes on it's little tail. They all are different and have different personalities. This little one stands up for me also as you can see. It is a real character.
My mom used to say what miracles they are because they have such perfect little paws and hold the peanut so nice. My mom used to feed them and taught me to love and care for all the voiceless creatures in the world. So I opened this blog to hopefully receive donations...they do bring cost and to work with Team Efa in our endeavors to help abused baby animals.
They certainly are a joy.

My first love is photography but I find myself oil painting more than photography. But just send me a photograph and I will do a commissioned piece for you.
This show is going on for 3 months. So stop by, visit our work. I am on the 3rd floor. Have a beautiful day and enjoy.

Brett and crew won today and now you may wish to purchase a memorabilia of mine of him at and also visit, "Gammy's Gift Shop", in Kiln, MS whereas I have also his items there. His cousin saw my work and liked it enough to buy a tee-shirt for Brett's Uncle and her mom has my work in her gift shop.
When I figure out how this new posting works (they again made changes) I will add more.
My brother-in-law just past recently and this is hard work for me. Grief is hell... Marilyn
They are all different personalities and they give me joy.
I have had people who are my neighbor's visitors come and ask me if they can take pictures of the little squirts.
I have painted one so go to animal section of my web site http://www.artbymarilyn.net and you can purchase a various sized print, a greeting card, bookmark, tee-shirt, decorator pillow, scented candle, refrigerator magnet, playing cards and more.

I am always in amazement at these little squirts and that they are relaxed enough to show a natural side.

That is a picture taken at "Troy Gardens'" in Madison, Wisconsin and I did okay.
I will be showing how I paint when I feel better.
Don't forget to..."WASH YOUR HANDS".

One flew off....The other had to be a baby...she must have been her mom showing her were to feel safe and feed. I could tell I needed my camera. I went in a got it and got the most amazing picture of the little one right in front of me checking me out. I talked to it in say, "How are you?", "Did you lose your mommy?", and, small talk. It came right up to me and lightly quackd. It was lost a little looking for it's mommy. This was a good 3 minutes.
It then raised up it's head and looked up in the direction of the house next door. It's mommy was there and quacked lightly. The little one took off following it's mommy. I felt such a deep love for the little one and it's mommy making the little one feel safe and the beautiful introduction to me. It felt safe with me and inspected me and then it's mommy came back. AMAZING!!!
It is amazing to have such a connection with the little girl and her mommy. Don't tell me there is no God. So I will add the picture but I need to crop and upload it and I am very tired. I love having a refuge/sanctuary in my backyard were these creatures can feel a safe harbor. I am learning sooo much. Tonight about 7:30 P.M., 07/20/10, Central time I saw an amazing sight of a mom duck and a baby duck in my backyard learning the ropes so to speak.
What a beautiful night cap. Marilyn

This morning I saw one duck and many squirrels coming running to be fed but it in all it's beauty must have been frightening for them. This is one of my paintings, bookmarks, jewelry, greeting cards, note cards, t-shirts, decorator pillows, scented candles and other items as playing cards that sell on http://www.artbymarilyn.net looped to etsy and this painting is one of them. They are expensive little ones and if you could dig deep into your pockets and send me a dollar or two I could afford these little ones easier. I just bought a 50# bag of food for $7.37 yesterday and I am very ill so you know I work hard at keeping these little guys safe and serene. I buy at least 1 bag a week plus bird seed for $3.95. Or purchase one of my items from etsy. It sure would help.
Anyway thank you for stopping by and viewing my blog. Later....Marilyn

I almost had a real mess on my hands trying to figure out how to add the words with the picture. I told you I am not a tech. I promised a picture of the ducks in their "Paradise". In the background you see their private swimming pool. They stay their all day and sleep beside it. They are also territorial. It is an amazing site to behold when I am tired and these friendly little ones greet me with a some kind of murmur.
The doctors have found a lump or some shadow on my lung and I tire easily so....forgive me...I find being a tech hard work. I would rather paint.
Julia makes me smile as I try to paint all the work that makes me smile. I want to do the Dali Lama and Frank Sinatra.
"My" ducks are fat and sassy and I am spoiling them rotten along with the other animals in my sanctuary or should I say theirs.
I am going to try to show you a picture of pure contentment in their sweet little lives...watch for the next picture. Marilyn

What an amazing experience. I call these 2, "Candy", and, "Dandy". Aren't they beautiful.
Have a beautiful day. Marilyn
What can't he do. Now he is into supplements. I watched the, "Celebrity Apprentice", just to get an idea of his work.
Wouldn't this man be one of the people you picked to have lunch with. I would.
Have a beautiful day. Marilyn

The picture of me is with the 2 peacocks I will be able to display in "Cher's" new movie with "Kristina Aguleria" in "BURLESQUE". I am excited, thrilled and in a bit of shock that an assistant set decorator would see my work and use my work with the other artists in the movie.
I posed with them for fun and I believe it is a fun way of advertising them. I was ill and exhausted but still I tried to smile and make others happy when they view my work.
It has been a way to get this far. That will be the next story in part.
I fed my animals 3 times today and they are tucked in tonight for the night in the lakes in Madison, Wisconsin. Thank the Lord there is no oil slick here...

This is my recent painting of our beautiful Olbrich Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. I was just walking through the many paths and I took many pictures. This is just another painting relative to my natural quest for nature and my ducks and other creatures. I will be doing more but I have to rest.
The next pages may be of my ways of doing my art with my animals and the stories of how and why I do them. I am tired so have a beautiful day. View my work on http://www.artbymarilyn.net looped to etsy

You can see their private pool in the back which they do use and they are so social. Since they know me they see me coming with their fresh water...they poop in the water... and they see me coming and I empty the bath and put fresh water in their private pool and they come right back...actually waddle...and claim it again. It is a riot to see their different personalities and the friendliness they have to me. I love those little guys and gals. And usually they get squirrels and rabbits and birds to come and socialize with them. It's too bad humans aren't learning from animals like these sweet little ducks. They share their food and seem to murmur a sweet tune and it is in sync. It is just amazing. They make great fertilizer if they stay at all. The greenery is lush..
Signing off. Marilyn
I wanted to send her a bookmark, a pillow or a tee-shirt but I really don't know how so if you or anyone you know see this please let her know and/or please send me her address.
This a is a fun journey for me because I can make others smile. Have a beautiful day. You can view this on my web site at http://www.artbymarilyn.net

I am playing a little catchup. I will also show the pictures of my mating ducks. It is a great treat to be amongst them as their friend.
Back to Sandra. You can find her on my web site Http://www.artbymarilyn.net looped to etsy. She is now an academy award winner. I saw every movie she has been in because as Julie Roberts movies' they are family oriented. They are cool. I am still believing that life can be what you make it. Now if only my health stays as I have always been into the organic, supplements, fruits, vegetables, water..
Well...everyone have a beautiful day and keep well. Marilyn
