West


Well, I was inspired to go west this week. First, I painted this little girl Becky . She lives close to the railroad tracks. I do love the sound of a distant train.


Then, I painted Susan. I had a hard time deciding to use crackle or not, but I am glad I did. It gives them both a very rustic primitive look. Not sure if you can tell, but they both have a touch of glitter too. Susan's fringe and Becky's flowers and flip flops. I always have to tell myself flip flops. I am of the generation when they were called thongs. Now, that is considered underwear! My nieces laugh when I call my flip flops thongs. How did it get so complicated?



And this is Becky's house. I think these wild donkeys come in the afternoon for a snack. Becky feeds them. I am going to put the girls up on ebay, but I have not decided on the house . I might keep that.

Jennifer these two girl paintings are my favorite, you have certainly taken a turn somewhere and excelled even more than before. I love these! Truly are awesome!

Thank you so much for your message. Lovely to hear from you. I was so surprised. The doctor truly shocked me, when he came out with this statement. I cannot believe anyone would do this.

Those are wonderful. Yes, Thongs...lol I have not called them that in a long time, though. That was back in the day when the word thong did not mean anything else to us...at least to me anyway...heehee

Greetings from the little house! I visited Laura's Missouri home too when i was 12 or 13 on our way back from a trip to Branson I think. I remember being so blown away to se Pa's fiddle. My little brother, however, was not so impressed. I think I have a tape of Laura somewhere that I bought in the gift shop...I cant wait until my daughter is old enough to read the books...we'll be heading back to Missouri to see Laura's house!
