Live a Colorful Life

Pieces...


 the entire piece...

Sitting down friday night, and babe wanting to paint with "Mama" paints, I knew I was ready to start playing again.  I have these long pieces of cardboard that I know would make great long scenes, and I really needed to paint in color!  I am so tired of being frazzled, blue, busy, tired...  When I sit down to paint, it has to be colorful.  My inner happy coming out!  I hope you enjoy and my happy land painting gives you a smile!

  3. Um, yeah. So so so FAB!!! We really do love a lot of the same things - I'm so into color at the moment too - big, bold color. For some reason, subtle color has lost it's appeal since the Summer . . . I'm also so into those vintage characters hidden in there and your swirly lollypop flowers - you are a girl after my own heart. AND I love the long strip of cardboard too - it is so unique and cool and should definitely be in a magazine (hint, hint ;)
    Thank you too for your sweet condolences, it means a lot, xoxoxo
    Oh! And I'm gonna start with PPF too! I was hoping for this Friday but since it's Kendra's birthday tomorrow (and party Sat) I doubt that I will make it - but I'm all over it in Oct . . . glad to have someone to play with!!

  4. I am really happy to see you painting again. Your inner whimsy coming out. This is so fun and fabulous. So many details. I love all of it. It definitely makes me smile. I always love how you use whatever you have on hand to paint on. That makes it even more magical. Hope all is well.

  16. This is REALLY beautiful! I love the way the corrugated cardboard peeks through in places. This is such a happy piece and I'm intrigued about the story behind it. (Incidentally, I just started a new art/creativity link-party on my blog--the new linky opens on Tuesdays and stays open for a week. I would love to see you there!--www.aPicturebookLife.blogspot.com)

    And I am with you on the way painting has the power to cut through tiredness or moodiness. Sometimes I feel like it's even better than sleeping! ;) I'm glad to have found your blog (thanks for your comment on mine!) and I can't wait to see what you paint next.
