friday night blogging ... we're living large now ....

mona lisa is flying off to florida .... just for a short jaunt .. no luggage, you see .... and she's just wearing her smallest butterfly wings ... so surely it's just a small trip ... 
this mona piece was done specifically for the topic FLORIDA ... for the show i'm in next month ... 

and then this one ... was not specifically done for the show in early february ... perhaps it is for the show in late february? regardless .... it was done because i was in an orange mood ... which is, clearly, better than being in a blue mood .... 

i spent most of my day today at allison's house painting ... two days in a row there because my studio is MUCH too cold ... though it did get up into the sixties today .... but once that basement studio is cold? BRRRRRR .. it stays cold!

so ... at allison's, i worked on four canvases ... the florida mona, i finished yesterday ... the nest, i finished today ... and then, the other canvases, i will finish .. um ... soon?

what's your next art project?? mine is a turquoise canvas ....

Oh I love this. The nest is so symbolic of many things.
My next art project...painting journal pages.

Love "Florida Mona"! Trying to finish "Music" even have a title which is very odd for me to have a title before the image is finished...."Andante" xxoo

Hey girl! Thanks for the stopby! Your latest artwork is lovely! Your new Mona pieces are wonderful, what a great topic. I love Mona. I need to use her image more in my art.

Latest art working on? Just finished up a piece for CreativeTherapy.wordpress.com. Should be posted tomorrow. Sometime soon I need to start some canvases for my bedroom. It needs help.

Talk to you soon, keep up the fabulous work.

update....Music canvas is now "Bach to Basics" --seemed appropriate with his face looking out on the viewer!
