It's Green and not even St. Patty's Day

The end of January is almost and positively here.  Sorry January you are usually brown and grey and cold  So I try to think of a cheerful color and green was the winner this day.   I know when I think of Green it is St Pattie's Day with the luck of the Irish and maybe a little Leprechaun at the end of a rainbow with a pot of gold.  But wait that is in March and when the green beer is served.  I guess I am getting ahead of myself here.  

When I started painting this next background I just saw a tube of green and cobalt blue paint and started playing and paint was a flying. One of my shirts proudly show the battle scars of the paint.    All random strokes painted and to the tune of some pretty song and Criminal Minds on the TV.  Yes both at the same time and with sometimes our fur babies laying at my feet giving me the stare that dogs give us when they really want a treat and look like they have no friend at all in the world.   Funny what I paint to now, pretty music and the TV going full steam ahead.   Well now I do mix it up sometimes and watch NCIS also.  

I created a wonderful swirly stamp I made  with rubber bands, my new best art friend and used my brushes and puncinella ( aka sequin waste) and just played to my hearts content.  Then when it was done I thought what in the world am I going to do with this?   Well guess who chose to appear ?  I call her the Brazilian Mardi Gras girl.  Pretty and sassy and lots of personality in her headdress. 


Hope you like her and the ribbons of color in her hair.  What am I going to do with her?  Don't know but she was fun and danced across my page.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.  Hugs xoxo
