New Small Painting + Pennies

I am still working on submissions for Artfest and a show this weekend.  After this weekend, I am FREE for the summer!  (Meaning I will be working on things that I WANT to work on!)  I did manage to finish 4 paintings this week.  3 are submissions so will (for now) be kept under wraps.  The extra one is below:


Rod's Pennies of Wisdom:

On a family trip to Savannah, GA, we all sat relaxing on a balcony at the end of a fun day.  During a lull in the conversation, I asked Rod, "what is it you love about Lisa?"  With absolutely no hesitation, he answered, "Well, we get along great and I can find her in Wal-Mart!"

Hello, Friends!! Please help me out. I try to come to each of your blogs to answer your comments. Is it better to answer them here or on your own blogs? Thanks for the comments, I appreciate each one and want to make sure you all know how much you mean to me and how I value each comment.

This little painting is too cute. I love the story...funny....although how and why can he find her in Walmart????? That is what I am wondering.....

The journals at the bottom of the page are AH-mazing, Sunny. I think my daughter Shanley Belle needs on for college next year.

I hope you have a beautiful summer full of relaxation, art and lots of cold ice tea. It was 100 degrees here today. YUCK. But, I am glad too to have artfest proposals in and now enjoy making art without stress.

Big Hugs!
