Paint Party Friday 15/2 and the Dogs

Yippee  it's Paint Party friday and I get to check out all my artist friends here! 
I've had a pretty creative week. Last night photobucket was doing maintenance, my photos wouldn't load, so I'm late posting!!


Meet Clover  my original acrylic! I just love doing several edits when I know I've used a lot of blended color  because you just have no idea how the color will show up in the edits!! Below Clover is Digger, who looks too much like another famous dog, but the edit make him more incognito!! I even made Digger a sister in the pink there!! Color is like a drug for me....it actually brings me elation!!!






Saw Lionel Richie interviewed the other day. It reminded of the song "Three times a lady!" The catalyst for buying a corvette in the seventies...now referred to as my disco car. A memory I'm almost embarrassed to share. It was one of the best cars I ever owned. I drove it for ten years and sold it for a little over what I paid for it!! I loved every moment of driving that car, except the one time I got stranded a few blocks from home in a snow storm. I kept it parked for one full year after my daughter was born! Knowing there was no room for a baby in a two seater I finally sold it!


But oh what fun it was being young with free flowing hair in the wind of a convertible. I felt powerful and proud!! I worked hard, and played hard! Now I'm left with  fun  memories and the feelings married to that song!!  What a joy to remember, yet there is so much more contentment today living the creative life!! Who knew....and if you'd asked me if this is how I'd be living I couldn't have guessed it!!  

How about you, do you have a fond youthful memory sparked by a certain song?

I love Clover in all of his different colors. He makes me smile.
My first car was a convertible and I've got one again in my old age. I love it and will always have one if I have anything to say about it.

Thank you for all of your help last week. Your story of your Bichon made me feel so much better. They can definitely be a handful.

My memory comes from driving my 66 Mustang with the windows down and playing Ventura Highway by America while driving down the Ventura Highway. ♥

what a great week you've had, Giggles! memories can be such fun. Your paintings each look so different just by changing the colour, amazing. They are cute too!

I am sitting here cracking up with memories...your little goat reminds me of my uncle's goat diary he had while I was growing up! don't think there is a song for that memory but its a good one! Everyone should have a convertible at least once in their life - just like my Harley it puts a smile on your face no matter what!
cheers, dana

I just love the vibrance and vitality in your paintings! Fantastic!
Certain songs do have a way of taking you back. For me, one would be another Lionel Ritchie song- Penny Lover! I was attending college one summer and my friends and I threw this impromptu get together that turned into a full blown party! College life! It was on that one hot summer night that a young man asked me to dance- we stepped out to the porch, underneath a beautiful tree. The clear night sky was covered with a blanket of twinkling stars. A light breeze and Lionel Ritchie filled the air. Wow, it's still such a pleasant memory! And although he and I are not together today, we are still very close friends. Thanks for the flashback!! :)
