It's a Southern Mermaid, Ya'll!

Well, Howdy Do on this Fine Friday Night!

Wow, I feel like I have been gone forever! I got back from my wonderful vacation in Sandestin, Florida all rejuvenated from seeing awesome fun, tropical arts and crafts, and went to work on painting one of my FAV subjects....Mermaids! Yes, ya'll know I just love those elusive "ladies of the ocean". Then, I finished one painting and BAM, as Emril says, the laptop crashed and burned again.

Well, it, the laptop, was really beginning to make me mad! Can an inanimate object make you mad? Well, this darn laptop did.....so, off it went to my brother in law....Oh, Great Computer Guy, that he is....and he worked and worked and worked....and well, for some reason, it had finally reached to point of no return and had to be sent off the "laptop heaven or hell", which ever one wanted it....lol. AND, then a marvelous thing happened....my sweet, precious Mom called me yesterday and told me she had bought me a new one....and as we say down here in rural Southern Georgia...."Bless her Heart".....all, I can say, is that for the past 58 years this past Sunday, I've been more than Blessed with her as my Mom.....love you Mom!

So, after exploring all day on this new fangled thingy, I just had to share with you my newest mermaid creation. When I had the idea to paint her, I envisioned her as an older, white haired mermaid, and well, when my sister pointed out that she "kinda looked like Ms. Paula Deen", well, I was tickled, because she does and I just love Paula and I love my new mermaid.....and the words on the painting, well, those are me.....and, well, I hope you enjoy her:








Isn't she great? I just love her, and one of my neighbors has already made an offer for her, but, I think I might have to hold on to her for awhile.....so, from my paint brushes to your computer, "ya'll have a great weekend"!

Blessings,

Deborah
