Santa Ana Retablo

Santa Ana ~ Retablo on wood
purchased at Spanish Market
Santa Fe New Mexico ~ 2008

This is the most beautiful piece of art I have ever
acquired. The first in what I hope is many. The
colors are so soft, up close it is velvety.

She is the patron saint of mother and children
and families.

May you, your children and your family
find joy and happiness today.

THE BIG "IF" ~ LET'S GET REAL JUST FOR TODAY

On The High Road
Paula ~ 2007



If you could be anyone - just for today,
who would you be?

If you could go anywhere - just for today,
where would you go?

If you could say what was truly on your heart -
just for today,
what would you say?

If you could eat what you love - just for today,
what would you eat?

If you could change anything in the world - just for today,
what would you change?

So.................

PAINTED BUILDINGS

Abuelita's Restaurant, Bernalillo New Mexico
Paula ~ 2008


Isn't this a charming touch?
There are, or I should say WERE
panel insets along the side of the building
with these wonderful paintings on them.

The restaurant did a remodel and these are
now gone.

What a pity.

It is Friday.
Here's hoping you have a restful and
happy weekend.

Catch you on Monday !!

IRIS HAVING LUNCH OUT WITH HER GRANDMA
Paula ~ 2008


Grandma take a picture of me with my hands on my head !

Grandma take a picture of me with my eyes closed !

Grandma take a picture of me sticking out my tongue !

And on, and on, and on it went,

hours of pure, electric, euphoric joy.

Such is being Iris' grandma.

THE GUY YOU LOVE TO HATE

A Dude With A Tude
Paper, Acrylic and Pen and Ink on 8 x 10 gallery wrap canvas
Paula ~ 2007



OMG, I nearly forgot.

You know how it is when there is someone who
is kind of abrasive, a real "know-it-all"
who likes to get in your face and take over
the whole show?

That kind of person you tend to try to put
out of your mind.
They aren't on your holiday card list, in your address
book or even on your radar screen.

AT ALL

Well, let me tell you, everyone at the
community coop feel that way
about this "Dude-With-a-Tude".
He's got major attitude.

BUT, I happen to think he is simply misunderstood.

I love him dearly.

I make him wanna be a better "Dude".

I'm off to Denver to see my sweet grand daughter
"Iris"
Oh yeah, and her parents too !

I'll be back Monday !

Love you, miss you already!

DON'T FORGET TO SCROLL BACK UP AND VOTE FOR
YOUR FAVORITE FOUL !!!
