Oops, I Did It Again

My weekly smile is once again painting! I followed my favorite tutor on YouTube, the Art Sherpa, to do this mashup of Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Sunflowers. What do you think? I’m pretty pleased overall. My color mixes came out well and the baby sunflower actually looks like a bloom and not a blob. My sky swirls could have been a bit more dramatic though.

This took me most of Sunday afternoon and it was time well spent. I was relaxed and happy while creating my painting. 🤩✨

Purple Poesy

Purple butterfly safety cocoon

A blend of blue and red,
Peace and passion,
Created me;
Violet, the most luxurious
And spiritual
Of all the colors,
Is my name.

I am the creative canvas
For a fertile imagination.
Royalty knows me well;
Byzantium nobles stroll
Through castles,
Resplendent in plum:
Robes of velvet and satin,
Spangled with gold,
As befits my elevated status.

My color graces soft orchid petals,
Kissed with dewdrops,
Trembling in the early dawn.
Lavender and lilac
Fill your rooms with love.
Amethyst crystals
Glitter in volcanic bowls,
While diamonds grow green
Over their superior beauty.

I am the hue of dragons,
Fierce and loyal,
Soaring across the sky:
Their heliotrope wings
Outshine the moonlight.
True blue is married
To danger’s red flame;
Come closer… I won’t bite.

I am mysterious and intuitive,
Feminine, elegant,
Yet earthy as an eggplant.
Yes, I am arrogant,
But it is tempered with honor.
I am the color of wisdom,
Which also makes me the shade
Of mourning.

Memory Idyll

Rainbow umbrella

The grey days of winter crash and foam, one much like another. Memories sprout like tender green buds under a warm yellow sun. You thrived in spring, with your hands in the dirt, coaxing forth a rainbow of blossoms.

These empty blue rooms
Echo my silent crying
I miss you, Mommy…

Migraine Smile

Migraine Attack

This is not a pretty picture. It’s my visual representation of how a migraine feels. A red hot tunnel of pain throbs on one side of my head. All the light is too bright. A sea of nausea surrounds me. Jagged stabs of pain arrive intermittently. I’m pretty pleased with how I captured the feelings.

But why did I make an ugly painting? Cuz I thought I was going to submit it to a publication about chronic conditions that aren’t always visible. BUT AS USUAL, I failed to read the directions. Art must be submitted in black and white format only. Well, turning it monochrome would ruin the whole effect of my depiction. So, I’m not sending it and instead will inflict it on my readers. 😂

The idea that I wasted a canvas and used up a bunch of precious paint to create an ugly piece of art I won’t even get credit for cracks me up. Typical me! 😜

That’s my smile for the week. 🙂

Song Lyric Sunday

Thanks go out to our tuneful host Jim Adams for providing our fun Sunday song prompts. Today my choice is Joan Jett’s cover of “Crimson and Clover.” This song was written by Tommy James and Peter Lucia in 1968. It spent 16 weeks on the US charts and reached No. 1 in the US and other countries. It’s Tommy James and the Shondells’ best-selling song ~ 5 million copies sold!

Crimson and Clover

Ah, now I don’t hardly know her
But I think I could love her
Crimson and clover
Ah when she comes walking over
Now I’ve been waitin’ to show her
Crimson and clover
Over and over
Yeah, my, my such a sweet thing
I wanna do everything
What a beautiful feeling
Crimson and clover over and over…

Winter Rainbows

Winter snow rainbow

Rooms cold and gloomy,

A house wracked with chills…

Impossible promises

Never fulfilled.

Beyond frosted windows

Over snow-crusted hills

Wind ribbons of color

Serenading the rills.

Beginning [SOCS]

Rainbow clouds

The end came sooner than expected. After years of floating from one grey wave to another, she believed the final day was far into the future. All she saw was fog, clouds all around, and the horizon blurred into mist. But abruptly the haze dropped away and she was standing on the ground, her legs shaky, her balance unsound. The air had cleared and she blinked in the bright sunlight, as a rainbow arced to infinity. She walked alone, filled with finality.

The breeze whispered and teased. She thought she heard a voice say… but it could be the beginning
