A quick note on the nature of "Joy"

She was supposed to be a Barred Owl.  Honest.  Sister E. suggested that I do one because she has one residing in a tree in her yard.  Joy started out as an e-mail from my sister and owl talk. Following - the beginnings of a roundish sorta clay blob on a tree branch that became taller and thinner until the tree branch turned into a skirt and the beginnings of an owl became an homage to the work of an artist (Isabel Bloom) that worked in my home town (Quad Cities). 

Funny how things turn out despite the intended direction, sometimes.

I still haveta do an owl for Sister E. Wonder what that will turn into?

And this just brought to mind a children's book, "Punkey Mouse for a Day" -- anyone remember that one?  What was your favorite book as a child?

Mine was "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak.
