babybirds, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

Betty finally hatched some eggs. She hatched Clementine, her first, in June. This was her third batch after that. She sat on two bunches of 4 eggs for months on end. She even layed 3 blue eggs over the Summer. What is up with that? She is not an Araucanian.

raccoon, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

i've been feeling called to paint a raccoon for two weeks now, i just love having it peer back at me now that it is painted (will be stuffed by monday). I was gifted with raising 4 different baby raccoons when i lived in the town woods of No. Reading. They are my favorite animal.

Silver & Rose

Silver & Rose, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

five years ago -

Rose used to bring toys to the chicken and then play 'chicken' to see whether She would play. They were at a stand off here that lasted for sometime. I remember Silver the chicken eventually charging at Rose to show her who was the boss around here.

Good Morning

Dear Bloggie,
I love you so much. Today I am working on finishing up two hand painted animal pillows and the Dancing Cardinal painting. I have two new paintings in the works for Chameleon Salon coming up Oct 4th. I would like to make more Boston Terrier Pillows because they are so cute and I might be able to make a good living off of them!

To visit my studio please email me to come by at tobineckian@gmail.com

Also, my favorite gallery in the world, CHameleon (map listed in upper right hand corner of blog) carries my pillow, pendants (soon) and Paintings.

We live on the same street!!!!
