*****click to enlarge*****Goodness..I cannot believe that was some 21 years ago. I was a sprightly 34 year old young mom. In case you have not guessed, that's me in the middle. This is the cover of a decorative painting book and the lovely lady in the Lady Liberty shirt is my very first painting teacher, Nancy Tribolet. Nancy was the artist/author of the book and a fabulously talented lady. Ok...stop laughing at my 80's big hair...it was all the rage back then. This was my red hair period..Picasso has his 'Blue 'period and I had my 'Red' period.
This photo brought back painful memories...how you say? Well you cannot see it and my face does not betray my false composure, but my right foot is right smack dab in the middle of a giant Texas fireant mount.....YIKES! Let me tell you those little bastards (please excuse my French) were biting the heck out of dainty slippered and manicured foot. All that misery aside, I just loved those painted roses that I got to model. Great memories of long ago days of playing with my paints, enjoying good times with friends and basically living the good life.....oh yeah, that was yesterday!
****your close enough..don't you dare click on this photo!*****
I guess not much has changed..besides my hair color that is, some additional poundage and a few well placed laugh lines ;-) I do believe someone larger than myself is watching out for me. Of course he could have spared me the fireant mount adventure...just saying!****Don't forget to pop over for Friday is Pieday****
Until next time be kind and stay creative.
