Journal Pg. 12

We are wordless at this point :) I want to write something on the left side but I'm still thinking on what I want it to be.

It's Tuesday and I'm off to get my eyes checked this afternoon. I know they've gotten worse since my last check up and it will be nice to get a new prescription. I've always had 20/20 vision but once I turned 45........I need glasses to even read the recipe on a cake mix box! :)

Have a super day♥

Oh Darla,
This piece took my breath away when I clicked into your blog! She is fabulous! I usually get nervous when I try to write on these pieces but I'm sure you will figure it out. She is just so expressive as she is. FABULOUS!

If you have trouble keeping the 5 degree slant and you have a natural tendency to slant it a bit more that's ok, just keep the slant consistent. I know you are doing great!

She is gorgeous!! I love the colors!

You are lucky to have had 20/20 for so long... coming from a girl who has had glasses and contacts FOREVER! :)

Renee said...

love Renee xoxo

I love your latest few pieces Darla, the colours are fabulous and the girls are so different (in a good way)

Thank you for your kind words on my blog about the craft fair, it can be so dis-heartening sometimes but I must keep on keeping on ;)

Hi Darla,
Oh wow, she's really coming along.
Amazing the transformation.

Good luck with the eye specialist.
I can hear you singing "I can see clearly now"

This new girl of yours is very haughty, very regal - I love these new paintings you are doing and the darker colors of your backgrounds - lovely!

Marie S said...

Oh Darla I love her. She is beautiful. The spirals in her hair are wonderful.
Love and hugs

She is thinking...
Yeah, you'll be back,
but I will be gone...

She is a powerhouse, Darla!

xox, Lisa

Silke said...

Gorgeous, Darla, just stunning! I had to click on her so I could see her beauty in full size. Wonderful!!

I'm with you on the eyes, except mine started getting worse when I was 41. Now, I wear very mild reading glasses, but I can really tell if I'm tired or have a headache- then my eyes don't want to focus at all...

Hugs, Silke

she is in deep thoughts ... reflecting on times gone by and what might have been ... she's gorgeous darla!! elegant and regal ... and perhaps melancholic ... that's why i love her!!

Lynda said...

I love the colors that you used in this piece! :)

Nicola said...

Loving your use of colour and light in this it has quite a different feel to your other work.

Kelly said...

She is gorgeous!
Good luck with the eye exam. I only just got a reading prescription a couple years ago, but yes, I need them to read directions on cake mix boxes too. I paint with them...and an embroidery magnifier too. I used to have such great vision...oh well.

I love what you did with this!!!!
