She is called
I spy with my little eye
because I couldn't resist adding a small snail
crawling up a stem in the lower left-
just gives me a chuckle.
Isn't that how life is?
Just when you think you have it all together,
there is always something!
She has been rehauled, face lifted, given new flowers,
and the background glazed over and over
until I finally think she is ready to greet the world....
3 weeks until the art show
and 3 more partial paintings to complete-
better get into the studio today.
