I don't know what Matty's name is short for but I have decided that surely it must be short for Mathilda. She is Miss Mathilda without a doubt and she knows which colours suit her best and selects her chairs accordingly.
Sometimes I am allowed to sit nearby and worship.
When not tending to the needs and desires of Miss Mathilda, and when not in bed recovering from anything I may have done lately such as grocery shopping, I have been doing as much writing as I can and happily have been back at my easel lately too. When spring arrives I always find myself wanting to wear more pink and purple. I strung this necklace of purple, pink and white glass beads one day on a whim and on another day I happily piled on the pink thrift shop lagens and went off to hang out at a cafe and pretend I am a writer.
I call this look Little Bo Peep Flapper. The dress is a happy thrift shop find but it does have a wee hole that needs mending. Here is the indoor look and the bundled for outside look.
I have decided that while I am slimmer than my clothes sometimes make me look, I am getting tired of caring.
And now, the latest blobs on a canvas:
A work in progress as always, this still life I'm working on actually sort of had a model. I work from my imagination mainly but once, a few months ago, I arranged some fruit in a bowl and thought it looked nice and took a picture and then lost the picture. This painting is based on that.
It's the weekend and while that doesn't really mean much in my world, for some reason it is the time when I try to get around to visit my favourite blogs. I am hopelessly behind, I know, but then I am hopelessly behind at everything.
May you and yours have a lovely weekend. Miss Mathilda wishes fish on a dish for you and I wish sunshine.
Oh My Goodness I am linking up to Sheila's Shoe Shine to show off these shoes which I love and to just hang out with all the cool people. Come on over because Sheila is pretty amazing and her blog is awesome.
