Full Weekend: Priceless Memories, Fun Painting Ahead
THE MINI-SKIRT CONTEST
Images and Insights of Kalie's BFand thought what the hell, I still have a mini dress in my closet. I will enter Carol Wyer's contest as described on her blog Facing Fifty With Humour,to assert that facing fifty isn't anything to dread. Fifty is the beginning of an era where all your silly hang ups and insecurities melt away--you meet you during those years and actually learn you like yourself.
I snapped the shot myself as you can see and found nothing humorous about squeezing into the size eight, till it actually zipped and made me giggle. If I look exhausted, it's because I whacked myself out looking for the gogo boots even though every seventy year old woman knows that gogo boots go with hot pants, which were a lot shorter than mini skirts!
OMG! SIGNS OF FALL! I'M GOING TO HAVE TO TACKLE THAT PAINTING AGAIN.
Oh no Mister Bill! They're subtle,but they're in the yard nonetheless. You know how I feel about Fall. Fall is the beginning of our fall into the depths of winter and despair. But this year I intend to get a SAD light,(I like the visor lamp)--or get the hell out of here?
There's also a lot of Purple Strife in the wild grasses. Purple Strife is an imported nuisance weed somebody introduced to our lake to what? Make it smaller? It is pretty though, and the following photo will be an excellent reference for a large abstract on one of those canvases you saw waiting for me in the corner of my studio. I also managed a couple of quick, get acquainted sketches. I do love the wild grasses. They are so full of colors and lines intersecting. Fun painting ahead.
