New Arrival- The Perfect Rose 8x10 Fine Art Print

Sorry my New Arrival is a little late-- I had a little bit of a traumatic afternoon yesterday. I came home and found my little pet frog dead. Of course this would happen the day after D leaves. I really couldn't bring myself to touch him, much less sit in the apartment with a dead critter until I could work up enough nerve to remove him...so I ended up taking the whole tank, with the dead frog, all the way to my mom's house so she could, ahem... take care of... it. Then I just chilled at mom's house for a bit and watched Dr. Who (hello! Why did no one tell me what a great show that is??!!)

So, here's my new arrival-- I love how the petals in the center form a heart!

New Arrival- Monet Inspired Water Lily

Monet Inspired Water Lily



My whole life is mine, but whoever says so
will deprive me, for it is infinite.
The ripple of water, the shade of the sky
are mine; it is still the same, my life.

No desire opens me: I am full,
I never close myself with refusal-
in the rythm of my daily soul
I do not desire-I am moved;

by being moved I exert my empire,
making the dreams of night real:
into my body at the bottom of the water
I attract the beyonds of mirrors...

Rainer Maria Rilke

Friday New Arrival: Cuppa joe

Happy Friday! I'm pretty glad it's finally Friday. I get to hang out with my grandma again! Shhhh... don't tell her-- Its supposed to be a surprise. Boy, will she be surprised (and pissed!) that I'll be there again! (hee hee!) She totally has some sort of plan, (probably to stand on a chair and clean something?) and she was nosy about what time mom was getting up, and leaving for work, and quite adamant about making sure I would be going to work... she definitely has something up her sleeve! Ah, she's so cute!

So, today I added one of my newest paintings in my Art Fire and Etsy shops.  I just **LOVE** this painting so much!
