Midweek post

Hi Everybody! 

Time is flying by again, it's the middle of the week already! Today I am sharing 2 pieces for Erika's let's face it challenge at AJJ. The first is one of my strange ladies with big hair, painted on A3 paper with acrylic paint:




Sorry, this one refused to turn around!



And this is a hybrid piece with  flower girl:



And some thinkies:





Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. You've created another beautiful woman in your painting today Valerie. I love how you put leaves in her hair. And those eyes and red lips makes me think she is looking something she finds appealing. And what a wonderful spring/summer page also. The flowers are pretty and the texture all those items create is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing over at AJJ. These are great pieces for the Let's Face It challenge. Its much appreciated as always. Hope your week is going well Valerie and take care. Hugs-Erika

  6. Good morning Valerie: Another one of your beauties, with face nestled in her long flowing tresses, peeking out to tease us, and giving rise to thoughts best left unspoken, but enjoyed within the creative recesses of our mind. Miriam will wonder why I am smiling broadly! Yet this one has no birds in her hair, perhaps because she is out at night, based on the starry sky behind her, with hints of Van Gogh delirium. Leaves are lovely, however, and they too adorn her well. I wonder who will appear on your blog to please us next? This morning I will be leading yet another bird walk, Valerie, to be joined by nine other hardy souls, the limit during COVID being ten participants. I hate having to turn people away, but it's first come, first served of necessity. We will all dress appropriately and remain perfectly comfortable. I read Sami's blog from Western Australia this morning, where for days on end the temperature has exceeded forty degrees. How the hell do you cope with that? I hope you will be feeling better soon. It has been a long struggle for you. Hugs and kisses, David

  7. Hi David, 'm glad I was able to provide you with another lovely girl today, I hope Miriam knows what you are smiling about! I hope you will see lots of beautiful birds on your walk today, I think you are brave to go out when it is so cold. None of my clothes would be suitable for such temperatures. 40° sounds awful, we had a few days last year with over 40° and it was dreadful, especially with no AC. Yes, health-wise it's a struggle just now, today I had to go to another department for a lung function test, there's something new every day! Enjoy your walk, and show us all of the beautiful photos soon. Big hugs, Valerie

  8. Both of these pieces are so well done. I love the face and her hair. That touch of gold on the upper lip is brilliant.

  9. Oooo, I love this one -her eye color is nice, and the way her hair frames her face, and the design of her hair, and the colors you chose... Wonderful :)

  11. What happened to the days when the week just went at a normal pace. No flying! Your big-haired girl is loads of fun!

  12. Wondrous. Loved everything. The memes. The facial expression and blues in the first piece. The second piece, so Victorian and made me smile.
    Hope you're having a good day.
    Hugs,

  14. I tried to leave a comment earlier and got FOUR different pictures to identify. Apparently after awhile, they kick you off. I'm back now, and hope the pictures they send today are better than before.

    Your big haired lady is beautiful. I think this is great. But I think my favorite is the flower girl. Guess I have a soft spot for vintage.

    Thanks for sharing these beauties with us for AJJ, dear. I love how great they work for Erika's theme.

    1. Sorry, Elizabeth, I hate those robot thingies, especially when they are in foreign languages! Vintage is always pretty, that's true. Have a great day!

  18. Some great thinkies there Valerie.
    Once again I love your painting of the lady. Your skin tones, as I mentioned before, are just right and I love the hair on this one. You are making me want to try to dod a portrait again it is so long since I did one.
    Love the hybrid piece, such a sweet child and the flowers are beautifully placed.
    Hugs, Neet xx
