Blustery even


What a difference a good nights sleep makes, woke up so rested and ready for it. For it all.

This is windy, One of several incorrigible, misbehavins , seriously, two months later. I’m obsessed with hair and it gets done over and over and over. Trying to control what the brush does rather than it control me and that is why, the repetition.

And the grapevine over the pergola is making lots of grapes this year, also you see a rare watermelon bird eyeing the hummingbird feeder 😀

poolside, MINT! yum for tea



The title from a friend of mine who immediately thought of the song when he saw the painting:

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
‘Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too

Ah, take my love, take it down
Ah, climb a mountain and I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
Oh, oh, the landslide will bring it down

Fight CLub Girl

“It’s a man’s movie, supposedly, so why did I think it was the best feminist statement of the 90s? Maybe because it was time to watch a man learn what women have always known: That living a life defined by home furnishings, fashion, commercialized domesticity and constant messages about how your body should look can literally drive you batty.” Sheerly Avni

Just slight overwhelm today, as I let stuff get behind over the weekend.

almost finished oil on canvas

From my Caterpillher series or Hungry girls….the idea for caterpillhers came to me when I thought about anorexic girls who are hungry all the time but don’t eat and or when they do, they eat and eat and eat until they vomit, you know bulimic, I suppose I should create fly inspired girls for that though since flys I believe regurgitate! Anyway, I also thought of termites but then, caterpillars are so much more beautiful then termites! No offense to eating disordered females since I think its half the women in the US and possibly ninety percent in Southern California!
