Painty Ladies


Look familiar? I should have named this one Procrastination because instead of working on my snow scene, here I am painting poppies again! Truly not my fault, I will blame my painty lady friends Judy and Nancy. In fact, I have named this painting for them - The Painty Ladies-Red Poppies.

A word of caution, never invite painty lady friends over for lunch and then let them talk you into doing a demo. But it's all good, because I have ways of getting even. *note to self: invite self to Judy/Nancy's, make them do demos and serve me yummy things to eat...*

Ahhh but yes - you were very good at demo!! And the poppy just 'Popped" right in front of our eyes!! You do know though, that is was the other Nancy's fault so I'm not taking any blame!! - She wanted her daughter Christy watch you paint!! And you were generous to allow us to watch and learn! We need more relaxed painty moments like we enjoyed at your home. Thank you to Carlos too.

Thanks to Carlos for the yummy things to eat! Christy was dividing her time between watching and the bevy of pugs (including her own) she got to play with.
The demo was very helpful (now I know I can't do poppies) hehe.
It was such fun to spend time with both you and Judy, I love sharing paint ideas.
The poppies are BEAUTIFUL!

Your poppies make me smile! The snow will wait!

Thank you for the praise for procrastinating - you know you have GOOD FRIENDS when they pat you on the back for doing what you want to do. ; ) Judy and Nancy, I'm so glad you guys came over. What a fun day it was, and Christy and the puggies having a playdate made it even more exciting. Melissa, your new pillows are so pretty - if our ears were burning, Mindy and I were talking about them last night!
Manon, we do so much think alike. Don't ever change.
xxooo
