Last week, Kitten gave me this small tin and said, "Here is your new challenge." I love it when she does that until I hear what it is. "Make a shrine." Mmm... but it's so tee tiny.
"I said it was a challenge. You can do it! And while we're at it, here's another challenge for you."
I ducked and covered but no dice. Kitten gave me a 1 inch by 1 inch stretched canvas (you read that right) and said, "Paint one of your Lovely Ladies on this."
Before I could even form a thought, let alone voice a word of protest, she added. “NOT just the head. I want to see an entire person on this.” DOH! But what I said was, “No problem.”
Tell Me, Peeps, do YOU have a shrine of any size whatsoever to share with us? If so, I would like to try for a SHRINE DAY FOR LABOR DAY (the first Monday in September for you non US types). How’s about it? (Simply because it’s going to take me that long to do it, believe me! Just when I think I am working small, I realize I’ve picked up extra millimeters.)
T and I took a short roadtrip today to visit some friends in Decatur. It was the first time I had visited their new home.
Nic is a great b&w photographer while Kathleen is all about colour.
The blue kettle on the stove made me think of the cobalt blue boiler Jeanne in London left with me almost two years ago.
And extra eyecandy for the casual observer was this gorgeous glass seahorse from Nic’s Mom hanging over the sink – which I am so down with. I recall my fascination with seahorses and octopi even as a child. Let's not even talk about dinosaurs. I was nuts for them all!
My next roadtrip might have to be the Florida beach community where Nic’s Mom lives to get myself one of these glass treasures! If so, rest assured Miss Mimi Hollace Green will definitely be invited.
