New to the Urban Soule Tribe

Our Urban Soule family. grew by one today!...
He is a purebred English Bull Terrier
and about 2 months old, his ears will stand up on their own in the next couple months.
He loves the house, yard, Peacocks, "Olive" the bunny and especially his new bed he gets all to himself!
We're still deciding on his name.... it's a tough one, he's got a lot of personality...

New Art in the Making

I've been experimenting with some new abstracts lately,  
some which are already on my WEBSITE
Below are details of a couple I'm working on the studio right now, which are bigger.
I have an idea to do some very large, square format ones...

I've also been working with a lot of gilding in gold and silver, I have some paintings I'm working on too, large animals, skulls etc... I'll post pix of the soon, once I get more finished on them.

Our New Baby Boy!!!!

I'm SO EXCITED to announce a new member of the Urban Soule Family!

 Our new baby BOY!
 We don't have a name picked out yet...
he'll be coming home around the end of the month!
He's a purebred Bull Terrier!
We saw him and wanted to meet him in person of course, so we drove to his families house...
Here's his siblings
 They were all such a joy to meet and snuggle with,
When we walked in to the pile of sleeping puppies, I pointed and said "oh, there he is"  I hadn't touched him yet, he opened his eyes,waged his tail and jumped up to meet us.... he snuggled with me the whole time while all his siblings ran around playing, he nudged my cheeks, pawed my lips and gave me lots of snuggles and kisses, I knew it was meant to be. He also stared at Bill with his dreamy puppy eyes and buttered him up too!
Now to come up with a name for him....

Winter Blooms

I have two Lady Slipper(Cypripedioideae) Orchids getting ready to bloom!
This one (above) should be a Dark red/black color
I'm not to sure though, I've been caring for this Orchid since it was a seedling, about 6 years now, this will be the first time it's bloomed.

and this little Orchid looks like the flower might be white, again I got this one while a seedling,I'm not sure of the name of it but it is a Lady Slipper (Cypripedioideae) and it will be the first bloom of this too!
Here's a link to read more about them.
 I'm taking pictures as they slowly open so keep watching this blog to see when they finally open!
