From Old to New

I have paintings that are ok. I’ve painted them but they don’t wow me. My question to myself is: “would you buy this?” If my answer isn’t yes, I have to figure out what to salvage. Can I improve the painting or do I toss it?

I have a lot of art under my bed. Art I keep for no real reason. No one sees this art but me. A collection of art that reflects my artistic progress and failures.

So this is my most recent re-work. I like my second efforts better. I love color and this has a lot of color. Which do you like???

Forever a Girl

So I’m at my favorite resale shop where everyone who works there is female and 70+. I can always hear them talking and laughing behind the wall. However today I was laughing right along with them even though they couldn’t see me.

Apparently one of the women has a new gentleman friend. One of the ladies said to her:

“Did you give him coffee this morning?”

She said “it isn’t like that he didn’t spend the night.”

“So are you saying you didn’t give him coffee?”

She said “he did not spend the night, it isn’t like that.”

“So you two don’t even hug?”

She said “ well yes we have hugged, but not that other stuff.”

They all started cracking up and laughing. I was thinking that no matter how old we get we still are girls at heart. We will always be laughing with each other and talking about boys. I loved it.
