rex ray


Are you familiar with Rex Ray? I wasn’t until Chris Maier placed one of his books into my hands. I was immediately enthused by his colors, shapes and textures. A single piece of his work can be a universe of design within itself. Many of my favorite pieces of his are done on resin panels. Whether you’ve never seen his work or just haven’t seen it in a while, treat yourself to a visit to his website.

definition: Gabriella [talks a lot, very feminine]; Purrbox [duh, she purrs… a lot!]; Flopsey [she flops on her side from a standing position at any given moment].

Gabby is a cat of mystery and I am her human. She holds many human qualities including a wonderful sense of humor. We like to chase each other around the house and play hide and sneak (we are so sneaky we startle one another). One of my favorite cat antics of Gabby-dabby-do is the way she chatters at bugs and, when appropriate, eats them. I’m certain she’s saved me from many a spider bite. On this particular day, Gabby had dibs on my office chair (not that she was helping me with any work!).
