26, 27 and yogurt .....

because enough of you said i could continue on with my exploration of the nest theme ..... here is my 26th painting of the year ......i actually went so far as to cut out a stencil that says nest ..... cause i knew just how i needed it to look ..... down to the dictionary font ......but my stencils and stamps weren't doing it for me ... so ... you can call me stencil maker .... this is one of the happiest paintings i've made lately ...to me anyway ...... i was happy making it and i am very happy with how it turned out ..... the name of the painting is ...'nest is a verb' ..... 

in contrast to the happiness .... i think painting number 27 of the year (say wow! 2 paintings finished today and her three kids weren't even in school ...... really wow!) ...... i think painting number 27 of the year is a bit moody .... kind of a calm and cool lavender .... is it about to rain? or is it dusk ....is it safe to leave your hearts hanging out all night ....i'm not sure .....
this painting is called 'heartstrings on a lavender day' ..... an exploration of yet another theme i've been working on a lot lately ..... you will let me know if my art gets boring, right? anyway, it's purple, and every time i express my disdain for purple, someone else shouts out that it is their favorite color .... so someone will like it .... and i'll get credit for trying to stretch myself, right?

and last but not least .... i had a contest ... remember? well ... apparently i didn't ... i wrote all the names on a smidge of paper .... and pulled one .... and i pulled out yogurt .... so, phd in yogurtry, you won! rah! go yogurt...... 

and the rest of you? thanks for playing .... let's do it again sometime ..... 
and special thanks to sweet allison for allowing me to do a contest with her images and goodies .... hooray.....

cooooool for me!!! whoo hooo ! happy feet dance! i'm so excited!

on a more serious note, what your hanging hearts say to me is, to fully benefit from love, we have to let our hearts hang out in the wind, be exposed to the elements, take the risk. sometimes we get cut down, sometimes the elements are kind and our hearts thrive.

that said, it does have a somber feel. but.. again.. love doesn't always have a happy ending.

see you there! said...
