When I was a little girl my favorite hairstyle was ‘Heidi hair’. I remember a book I had by Judy Blume (I think?) with a girl on the front, who had dark hair (like me) donned in a ‘Heidi doo’ with a big red gladiola on the side. I loved this paining, I think because I thought it looked like me. I remember I loved the book too but I just can’t remember the title … ???*** Boy haven’t thought about that in awhile.
Well here I go again, living vicarioulsy through my kids. I love putting Imogen’s hair up this way. She thinks she looks like a princess but hates all the pins it requires. It does takes a lot of pins! Boy does that kid have thick hair!
**** It was “Starring Sally J. Freedman As Herself”
This is a new mixed media painting I did on paper. It is 11.5″x15.5″.
Funny enough, well, not funny at all, Beijing tried to jump on top of the fridge today and fell and hurt his leg. He is at the vet right now, under observation. Ching, ching (that is the sound of money …booooooo hooooo).
Last night we took our 5 year old to The Wizard of OZ. It was a huge production made even larger by the fact that we were in the second row.
I have always loved Dorothy’s ruby slippers, I definitely have a thing for red shoes. (Well, shoes in general, to be honest.) Last night I wore my three inch, T-strap, Kate Spades. They have tiny coral details that I just love. Imogen, who also loves a nice shoe, wore her gold ballerina flats.
I wish people dressed up more to go to the theater. I mean, if we no longer dress up to go to the theater, then when DO we dress up?
This is a little painting I did of one of Scarlett’s favorite shoes (Kenneth Cole). It is mixed media on paper and is 8.5″x11.5″.
This is a mixed media portrait I did of Otto the Bullodog. Isn’t he adorable! This was really fun and I totally fell in love with my subject.
This is a 3’x5′ mixed media painting on canvas.
Remember when you learnt how to tie your own shoes? It was quite the feeling of accomplishment.
I did this 9″x12″ mixed media painting today and guess what? Imogen tied a bow! WOW! She was so excited. There were high fives all around, even Scarlett was in on it.
The only thing that you don’t need when you are trying to tie your shoe is a cat. Ever noticed how they like long stringy things?
Sometimes blending in is an ‘impossibility’.
