Lazy Days and Sundays

I have new painting to share.... Lazy days and Sundays always make me smile.
I thought I would try and do a smaller one although the size 12x16, the girl is smaller in size. I hope she looks a little younger. The girls I usually paint look a little older maybe in their tweens. I paint them that way so the girls (hopefully) will want to keep them in their rooms longer. Anyway she is listed on Etsy.

Thanks for stopping by!

At long last! I can finally upload pictures to my computer (yea) !! I am really excited, two of my favorite artists are doing new on-line classes. Suzi Blu is doing a mermaid class which sounds like so much fun and she is teaching a lot of new techniques . Wyanne is doing a new class too! I have to decide which one to do first. They are both really great artists and have some great classes..

I have a new painting called "friends". It is listed on Etsy. The saying says "friends come in all different shapes & sizes".

Technical difficulties

I am so frustrated! I have an old computer and also an old camera, I am unable to download my pictures from my camera to my computer....@#$%^&*, I admit I have not been the best blogger over this past year, but I am in a better place now and I want to share some new artwork with you all and can't! Hopefully, I will get this issue settled soon.
Thanks as always for kind words!

Lately I have been spending a lot of time looking at design blogs.
There are so many wonderful ones out there, I could spend(and sometimes I do) all day looking at them all. One of my favorites is Life in the fun lane. Wow, that girl has skills! Anyway,I had this old dresser in our garage that we (hubby & me) picked up a while ago. I really wanted to do a fun color, so I looked through many magazines and countless blogs, and decided on yellow. I regret that I do not have any before pictures, which is a bummer because it was pretty hideous! I really deliberated over what knobs to use...I went to Anthropology at least 5 times and I still have one knob in mind...but for know this is it!

Bright Star

I went to see the movie Bright Star, about poet John Keats. He falls in love with the girl next door Fanny Brawne. The movie was so beautiful! I am a sucker for English movies anyway, but this was not just a beautiful story, it was visually breathtaking!

I was a little disappointed that Abby Cornish was not nominated for an Oscar!

Do yourself a favor, see this movie!

Bright star! would I were steadfast as thou art—
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night,
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like Nature’s patient sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—
No—yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.
John Keats 1819
