Mountains and new hair color :)

I took a little time this morning to play with some watercolor paper......and acrylics and pan pastels and napkins :)

It says: You cannot climb a mountain if you will not risk a fall

Last Wednesday I had a hair appointment to get some 'highlights'. The last time I was there, my hair wouldn't take the highlights very well so she bumped it up a bit. I'M BLONDE!

Granted, with the gray hair I was getting a little lighter anyway but I've never been this blonde :) I felt so sorry for my stylist as her mother was on her death bed (damn cancer) and I think she just had so much on her mind. My hair is wonky too so between the two, we got this.

She said if after a couple of days I wasn't happy to come back and she'd put some low lights in it. Her mother died........I don't feel my hair is all that important at the moment.

So I shall live with it :)

And here is one my Elvis favorites! Enjoy!

The painting is beautiful and the sentiment is apropos. Love the hair color, I was thinking of doing mine pale lilac. Hey I'm 59 if I don't do it now when will I. Besides artists are supposed to be "off the wall". Sorry to hear the sad news though.

My first time to visit your blog. Your hair looks wonderful. Illness and death really can put things in perspective.
Your painting is full of life and sweet as can be.
