it's an average life..

My blog friend Tracy asked me to create a painting inspired  her blog. She gave me a few hints of things that make her happy and gave me complete carte blanche. Tracy is a writer, so I had a pretty good idea of what I would create for her..a little girl writing poetry, under a tree, bees, flowers,etc etc.. but then I sat down at my table..and my hand just took over..lol  didn't want to play "safe".  Nothing average about ladybugs swimming in the sea . I was smiling the whole time I was painting and thought to myself.."yeah, she'll love this" and she did!!  Thank you Tracy for the inspiration :)

My other news is that, opening night for the "Homo Sapiens in Love" was a huge success! I have never seen so many people attend a show, like this, before. It was so exciting to see my sculpture get so much attention, I wanted to stay all night and listen to the beautiful comments! lol. My friends had to drag me away at 2 am. I will be posting pics as soon as the curator sends them out, because the ones that I took..are lousy! I think I had too many gin tonics that evening! lol


  1. Hi Joana,
    I love this piece and what strikes me as so cheerful is the waves--they are precious! I know that your friend must be thrilled.

    And congratulations on the exhibit! I just went down the page to read about it...My work is on exhibit now too and this is just so thrilling, isn't it? I felt like I was dreaming it...I bet you feel like you're dreaming it too!
    Wishing you much success with the show--this is totally awesome!!!

    Hugs from me,

  2. Congratulations on being a huge success Joanna. I love your latest creation so bright and whimsical. Annette x
