watched "Must Love Dogs" last night and saw the banana palm wallpaper in one scene - what did you decide to do there? or are you still deciding?

Melissa said...

Lovely paintings.

These days I'm drawn to any kind of art that I can actually put up on my wall! For too long I've been avoiding hanging things because I'll just have to take them down soon to repaint and protect from the dust once we get back to the tiling projects around here. But someday I'll hang 'em!

Ivy Lane said...

ooohh.. I really like these paintings! My faves here at home are by Jane Slivka... she is an impressionist per say... her website is JaneSlivkaGallery.com I own 5 of her paintings and love to look at them every day!

SeaWorthy said...

woweeeee, those are just stupendous! I love love love the one where the swimmer is on her back in the black bathing suit. Thats my stroke!
My crush lately is anne packard. Crave her sence of the beach, although she is an east coast gal, I think she could do my lonely upper west coast some real justice if she ever wanted to come over and try!! I might even let her stay at my place!
happy sunday lime in the coco!!

first time here... Artistic world view? Ahhhhh photography? Delectable wordsmithing? Inspirational, giggle inducing commentary? What's not to like? Thank you for sparking my creativity, tickling my funny bone, and making me feel that quirkiness is an attribute to cultivate and indeed celebrate! You made my day, you lime in the coconut!
