Crowned Heads

Hello Everyone!
Before we start our tour today, below is a photo of a rather large painting by a local artist... we found it at The Blue Marley Cafe here. T, Leon and I had a great time there. Hard to believe it was exactly a week ago all that was going on. Her other works were equally colourful and fun, but this is a tip of the hat to ArtFest '09. Oh you know why!!! Don't you?

To the left is A Satisfied Customer (L) and Melin (R).

Her business and booth is Melin's Designs. At the Farmers Market, she has a booth selling hats and caps, all handmade with American made and sold fabrics. They are all gorgeous. And FUN!

A soft cool day here today... rain promised but little follow up. My front yard has all sorts of towering colorful flowers and such... I love just seeing them.
"I don't know how I do it..." In progress.

"Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown..." -- Thank you, William. In progress...

"The Rainbow's Heart" aka The Clown Princess -- yes, I do love redheads! She has a different type crown, doesn't she?

The Baboon Queen -- in progress, obviously.

Hope you've enjoyed the tour today... all sorts of stuff going on, big and small.

RYC, the penguin is still where you left him and the difference is the bowl of fruit in front of him that he appears to be eating. I will post a picture of it soon. I like the "Baboon Queen."

I love the queen's eyes. They are beautiful! Best to you - femminismo

That's the uneasy "clown" queen's eyes - not to be confused with the Baboon Queen (in progress).
And the flowers growing from the fingertips is very fine. - jeanne

I appreciate the kind comments, femminismo. I hope to have these all totally finished and up -- one at a time -- very soon.
Have a good one!
