Bluebird of Happiness

I have been busy working on a couple of things, so I am recyling some paintings. This is one that was done on a canvas that sits in my hallway. I like blue as you can tell. Well today it rained here, 40 below one day and rain the next. What is with this weird weather patterns all over the world. Bad storms in the States and down east in Canada. Hubby has to go down east on Wednesday hope he does not run into any storms.

Last post for the night I promise. I am playing catch up for the Misty Challenges. This week it is all about emotions. This week that is a good one for me, I am all about emotion. Tommorow is the anniversary of my sisters death and all the stressers that go on. So be prepared. And I do envy which I think is a natural emotion to have...

Have you heard of circle fish

Do you like circles. I love circles..misty mawn has a challenge up to use some sort of shape in your art, so I reworked this one I already had cicles on it but put some more on it. Wouldn't you like to see a fish this colourful close up, you might need sunglasses.

She was a dreamer

I found this old picture of me and copied it and decided it needed to be in my journal. So here I am in my favourite summer attire when I was young, thongs (they are now called flip flops)and pedal pushers they are now called capris and with my eyes closed. I was down in the studio cleaning up because I again dont have my mojo going. I find going through my stuff usually helps and it did. I am also using this as my Inspire me Thursday - submission which is "peeling paint". Which I think I made this photo look like.

Before and After - and still working on

You have seen this one before. It was not done at this stage.

Here it is again, I have just about finished it. As my daughter the critic says, I overwork and overthink . So do you think its done or is it missing something. My head says keep working on it.

have you ever had a song in your mind and it just goes on and on while this is it. Save the last dance for me. I love it, have not thought of it in years, hence the poodle on the skirt.

I am guility...

Are you one of those people who look at someone and judge them immediately. Okay I admit it, I have been known to do that. Its not right and I am trying to change my ways.....because I dont want people to judge me just be looking at me. I am so much more than just a body, I am a loving compassionate woman and you cant see that just by looking at me. So if you are a judger think about would you want people to judge you without knowing the real you.

I tried the transfer technique on this piece on the sides you can barely make it out...i used transpariences I watch videos of everyone elee having no problem but me just does not seem to work.

Two Heads Fused Together

I am not Spiderwoman...

I really am not Spiderwoman (lol). Well today was another day in paradise. Snowy, cold and just nasty. Took Sofie (the dog) for a Clip and Curl at the doggy spa and thats about it. Other than doing that housework I wish would magically get done by itself. I did do a little in my art journal hence the picture of spiderwoman . Hope you all had a more exciting day than me. In case you want to know what I have written which is unclear here it is...I was in some kind of mood when I wrote this today.

When people look at you do they really see the real you. Or do they see the face that you want them to see. Do they care enough about you to dig under your surface layer and delve into that place that you keep locked up tight. Do you want to unlock that secret place and share it ? (I know way to deep for a Wednesday.)
