Dreamy kind of Monday.......

One of my favourite paintings ever........wish I knew who did it.


I have had a lovely day today

Just pottering

playing with paint

listening to music

daydreaming

sigh

Just what I needed.......

I may be ready to face the world again

tomorrow.......

Oh, and a mum update, this reduced chemo has been much easier for her. She's not too bad at all this week.....if she can whinge then she is okay :)

Sounds like a good start for your week. I like the painting too...I'm guessing that your question about who did it is tongue and cheek? It looks like your style. In any case, I like it too.

Dave King said...

What an intriguing painting! Like you, I wish I knew who did it. Is is the whole painting, or a detail?

Natalie said...

That is really good about mum, I am pleased to hear some news.

I love those days ....so rare at my place too at the moment. Being at the beach yesterday, was like sticking an electrical cord in the socket - just SO energising. Glad you got some dreamtime.xx

No BB, its not mine, but it has influenced me greatly.

Dave, I found it listed as a student work in a book I can't remember the name of right now. I will find out and let you know. It was Juanita something or other....it's wonderful isn't it.

Painting the Spirit of Nature
by Maxine Masterfield...that was it!

Some lovely work on paper in there and interesting stuff.

Hi Michelle, glad to hear you have a bit of time to rejuvinate and create.
I love the Maxine Masterfield "Spirit of Nature" Painting too.

I agree that it looks something like your style...maybe the background or the etched out feel. I love the way it seems that you can peer inside...and even more if you could just brush away the covering bits.

Glad to hear your mum is handling her treatment better. <3

Sounds like you had a simply maaahhhvelous day Daaahhlin'!

Interesting title on the painting...and Bagman is very observant in terms of style 'cause at first glance I too thought it was yours.

Very happy to hear about your Mum. I hope this trend continues. :)

Audrey said...

The painting is fantastic and I agree with BB - your style is very similar to the artists.

Good news about your Mum!

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff... said...

That's great news about your mum Michele.....
I thought that was one of your beautiful paintings as well and would have guessed it was yours had you not said differently!!

Steady On

No, that's the name of the book the painting was in.
