Burst of color in my mailbox! Janet thought that I might need some happy colors to cheer me up and sent me this postcard. How wonderful is that? I thought it would look good posed on my flowers, but they are so fluorescent that the bright colors of the postcard just melt in.
So I took another picture where it shines in full glory. Thank you Janet, I absolutely LOVE it!
I wanted to show you how I color coordinate things in my life.... I make smoothies the color of Bart's eyes. This lovely artist (and author to soon to be published book) gave me a link to this woman several months ago, and I can't stop trying almost everything she posts. This smoothie could be my favorite desert in the future. To me it tastes better than chocolate... which is very high praise. (BTW, if you are interested to know what is Bart looking at - it's Downtown Abbey. I am lucky to have resisted it up to now, because now I can watch all the episodes at once (free on Amazon Prime). I'm completely enamored with it...)
These are snippets of the first 24"x36" painting I started in months. Do I still know how to paint? We'll see. I'm fighting the gremlins and constantly urging myself to continue... that this is just the beginning and warmup, that they will start looking less like aliens and more like something else as I move on.
And for the end, another thing that falls into random Tuesday stuff - my husband "the Wizard" (seen here sitting under a light fixture in a restaurant) just sent me a link to some music that he knew I would love. Maybe you'll love it to. Click HERE if you want to hear it.
