The Garden that inspired a cat caracature
As you know, if you have followed me for some time, I lost all of my Amazon reviews for my books last November, when I moved them from one distributor to another. I have asked if you had left a review in the past, could you please return to Amazon and leave a new review, if your old review has been deleted.
I am so grateful to a recent reader who purchased, read, and positively reviewed all of my books. One stranger's thoughtfulness can elevate an author's spirit.
Last month, through the Mystery Books Give-aways, I gave away 1000 free copies of my books. If you were one of the recipients, reviews would be gratefully appreciated. You will find links to all of my novels, and where you can review them, at the base of this website page. As I also need reviews, I have reduced many of my book prices to make them extremely affordable.
A Brush with Nature Studio
I've been happily doing a mixture of fine art and cat caricature art.
All of my work in progress is being videoed and the videos published to YouTube. You can assist my YouTube Channel to grow, and at no cost, in a short second:

Life is good.
I turned seventy-two this month, and Reg turns seventy-eight in three days time. I don't doubt that my cataracts turned seventy-two, too. Another good reason to elevate the garden now, before I start mistaking peonies at ground level for weed. Now that brings me to my next artwork, which I begin today. I've planned a painting of double, peony tulips, which you will need to subscribe to my Youtube channel to see.
There are aspects of senior life that I love.
When I cooked up a mess in the kitchen today I knew I had the luxury of home help arriving on Thursday to help clean it up.
Oh, how I would have benefited from that luxury as a younger working mum when no such assistance was offered.
Disability has its perks. :-) I utilised my husband's unsteadiness, along with a blog about cat care for the disabled, in a funny, and practical video. I'll release on the first of September. Remember to check it out on YouTube. That link again: Please help my YouTube channel grow by subscribing here and sharing this link.
The above ground garden beds, my winter fitness project, proved to be quite a challenge and may be completed by spring, What an achievement though. I get to keep on gardening for years to come, by bringing the ground up to a level I can reach. All those beautiful flowers I can grow to paint.
If you want to watch those paintings being completed, again, I ask, Please subscribe to Ryn Shell's YouTube channel and share this link.
Very best wishes from artist-author, and creative coach.
