Marrying Whimsy and Abstract

Wow I didn't realize it's been a week since I did a blog post.. Where did the time go? I'm still battling the fact that I had all my teeth removed and am waiting till my gums heal to get dentures.. It's been almost three months now.. When I went over to the dentist last week they were concerned that I'm not healing fast enough. sure naturally I wouldn't.. LOL  I have to stay looking like an old hag for a while more!! woooh is me.. LOL

on another Note - A C Flat! nah j/k... I did a piece where I took a whimsy gal and put her in an Abstract painting... I like it..   I like the Grunge in the background and the colors of the gal.

The Contrast I think looks cool..  I have to varnish it yet..
I've been having this feeling like I want to work really large but don't know what I want to do.. duh and duh again!! LOL

I'm joining Paint Party Friday a little late.. better late then never huh? LOL

Have a fab week.

Hey United States let's Catch Up!!

As Most of my Readers know I hardly ever get political on my blog.. But I saw this on the 
Heartul Musings Blog which is written by Tracy Verdugo

I was very touched..

Here is what she posted to go along with this Video

I whole heartily agree with the Parliment of New Zealand.

"As the Parliament of New Zealand passed a bill to allow equal marriage in the country, those in attendance of the reading broke into song, once it was announced that it had passed.
The video posted by the Parliamentary TV service, sees the speaker of the house announce the results of the reading, which saw 70 votes for and 44 against, before cheers from the crowd.
Someone in the public gallery then calls out, before an emotional pause, and the song Pokarekare Ana, a traditional love song, written in 1917, and considered by some an unofficial National Anthem.
The Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill introduced equal marriage for all regardless of sex, sexual orientation or gender identity."

"New Zealand is the 13th country in the world to legalise equal marriage.
It is legal in the following countries: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay."

The Goddess Maive

I'm in Effy Wild's Workshop - Moonshine .. It's all about the feminine devine. This week we studied Maive the Irish goddess ..She is the goddess of "Intoxication" .. She liked to screw around a lot!! Took many husbands.. Drank Mead a lot.. and in the end was killed.. She was a warrior.. Google her for a lot more information. I just did the short abridged version. LOL

Here is what Effy wrote about Moonshine so it's better explained

Moonshine is a seasonally driven spiritual painting program that will enfold you in the stories, power, and beauty of the feminine divine. Moonshine runs in quarterly sessions with a Summer (May, June, July), Autumn (August, September, October), Winter (November, December, January), and Spring (February, March, April) session, each lasting three months (or approximately 12 weeks). 

I'm in the Summer Session so far..

painted a picture of Maive.. That's a crow in the background.. ROFL!! I sure had a hard time with that beak! LOL

I'm having a hard time when I mask something to keep my original proportions.. Like her leg is a little off. This won't be for sale that's for sure! I did have a lot of fun painting it.. It's mixed media as the background and most of the gal is watercolor, and the tree and some other elements are acrylics. 

I'm joining Paint Party Friday.. Head on over to see some fabulous artwork..

Hey! Thanks for stopping by.
