Love Shy

hi friends, thanks to all of you who left comments on my last post letting me know that Blogger was acting up. I thought it was just me. I see the curser problem is still not fixed, you click enter and you never know where the curser will end up, lol!

Above is my latest small painting titled 'Love Shy'.  I thought her expression looked hopeful, and vulnerable at the same time....which I didn't plan, but you have to let the painting go where it wants.
She is now listed in my Etsy shop.

We had quite the exciting thunderstorm this morning. I was just making breakfast, when I looked outside and it was pitch black. A big storm rolled in, and luckily I made my first coffee, because we lost power for a bit.
Can you imagine not being able to make a nice big cup of coffee in the morning, lol!

If the sun ever comes out, I want to take some photos of this gorgeous lily my mom bought me.  After the storm ended I thought the sun would come out, but once again, all we saw is a totally white sky...those damn thick white clouds that block out the sun don't want to go away. Sounds like various parts of the US have the same crap weather.  At least the sun shone all of last week -- while I was at work- and surprise! clouds and rain, just in time for the weekend, lol!
Oh well, gave me a chance to get all my housework done :-)

hope you are all having a lovely weekend wherever you are,
thanks for reading!

Love, love love this painting! Love the different size eyes and the texture in the background. If I were saving to travel for our sister's weeding I would be taking this off your hands.

She is so sweet! Reminds me of my 2 big-eyed girls! Y'know, I was sewing today, and my sewing machine faces the wall that they are hanging on.....and I just kept finding myself looking at them adoringly everytime I ended a stitch. I truly love them!

I think I would just go back to sleep if I couldn't get my cup of coffee in the morning....being awake without it would be too much torture...haha!!!!

Loving your girly, your painting style lately has really loosened up and I am loving it, thats not to say I didn't love it before though because I did ;)

Sending you some sun, it's still hot here.

She is adorable and the title fits her expression perfectly. We actually had the best sunny day yesterday. Warmest day (84) since last September.
