This painting is for my youngest sister "The Comedian". She's the clown of the family. Always there for comic relief and she never lets us down. I love the little streak of pink in her hair it reflects her crazy nature. The suspenders remind me of circus clowns but it looks stylish on her. I wrote all the funny phrase in the background just to give it a different look. I hope she likes it !

So, I watch this movie last night. My sister actually said that it was a great movie and that it inspired her to start cooking again.I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The movie is basically about Julie who is bored with her life and wants to do something new so, she starts a blog about cooking. Her mission: to make all of Julia Child's recipes in one year. It also about Julia Child's struggle to be a Chef in Paris, and getting her first Cookbook Published. And blah, blah, blah...
It's really is a great story. I just really like the Blog story. It really told the story about being a new blogger. It talk about the feeling of just putting yourself out there day after day not knowing if anyone is reading what you are writing but still doing it anyway! So True!! She even wrote a blog that read: Is there anyone out there listening??? I loved the part about her getting so excited about having a comment and then finding out that it was only her mother. ( I totally get her.) Then, seeing how her blog started to grow, and grow and soon she was receiving 20 comment and they were all from people that she didn't know.
I'll admit sometime I feel like her. Is there anyone reading this? (other than family) I guess, I get Blog Envy if that is a word? I read alot of blog and the people behind them always have so much to say, so much to write about? Their lives seem so interesting. I'm just this small time artist, trying to paint in her spare time ....
With all that being said she did give me hope. Even when plans didn't go as planned she never gave up. She continued to put herself out there, and continued to do what she love to do! And things changed! Finally she ......I wont give away all of the movie. But I am going to continue to Blog about this so called Art thing..and wait and wonder about the possibilities? Who knows what will happen? :)

Hey, I know it's been a week since I updated, but I have been busy with new art. The above painting was inspired by my youngest daughter. She loves the color purple. I love the huge ponytails. This painting was done using watercolor paper and collaging it to the painted background. I like using this technique it always make the picture stand out from the background. So this is for you Thing 2!

This painting is dedicated to Sisters. They really are the best,no matter how much we fuss and fight I wouldn't trade them for anything! I have four sisters. 3 older sisters and one younger sister. They are all completely different and they all have different personalities. My younger sister is the Comedian. She is always the life of the party,there's never a dull moment with her. My Twin sister (who is only 5 min. older than me)is the other better half of me. She is my best friend we do everything together. There is just this unknown closeness that we share that's kinda hard to explain. And we are exactly alike that's probably why we get along so well. My other older sister is the Boss! She tends to take care of everything and everyone. She plans most of the family trips and make sure that every party is up to standard. She's also the one that you don't want to mess with, she will make sure that no one is going to take advantage of you or a situation. And last but not least there is my sister-in-law (who is really like my sister but way nicer)she's the professor. I swear if you ever need to know about anything you call and ask her because she will know, and if she doesn't know she will call you the next day and give you the answer. I love them!!
The painting above is different from what I usually do. The layout reminds me of a page in a comic book page. The girls on the left are me and my twin sister. She is the one in the aqua blue shirt. She tends to wear her hair wavy and her's isn't colored like mine. The little girls in the lower right hand corner are my girls. The two above them are my younger sister and my older sister.(They are best friends too, but wont admit it)My younger sister is the one with the pink streaks in her hair. Sorry,Professor I didn't have room to put you in this one not enough room but, I promise I'm working on something really cool for you! I hope you guys like it !
