thar she blues...

 Anybody out there remember that I paint?
Yeah, I barely did either.. it's been too long.  
What with having the kidlets, and focusing on more manageable sewing and crafting projects, the brushes have been left sitting dry.

That's why I'm so thankful for good people (great friends) who inspired me to do this commission, and this one too... and now, I've got a new.blue.view order to create!

Just slapping the canvas with wet paints is a rekindled thrill.
But what's even more fun?  My 'resident-artist' was beside me:

 Having recently purged our hoarders.nasty.clutter.junk-pit garage, there was a sheltered space for us to get messy and have fun.
Two tandem painters.
Two easels, and canvasses covered with colour.

The fact that we both love painting (and sticking our tongues out to concentrate better) is such a fun part of our relationship.
Not to mention the hilarious sweetness of her ecstatic dance/singing that comes with her creative groove:

  (If you make it past the first.slow.30 seconds.. it gets pretty sweet, but I am biased).

I love my wee artist's style.

Azriel is wearing:
carbon black
(Ok... and a Crayola paint smock over a cute Owl shirt from Old Navy and grey pants from JOE...  which may not 'count' as style for the Small Style link-up crew, but I think it's pretty funny)!

She blue me away,
like she does everyday.

Mel ;o)
