Nice to see the naked lady and her kitty finally put some clothes on!! Still loving that post, btw!!

Great painting. Your work has great humor and spontenaity and movement.

Tornado dreams mean that your life is spinning out of control. They used to freak me out, til I figured out what they meant. Now I no longer have tornado dreams.

The smooshy-whooshy paint flow is quite a thrill.

It's vivid!!love your facial expression and cat's shock looking!

You've managed to capture an ominous, stormy feel as well as adding humor. I love your work!

Wow, I've missed a lot of cool stuff... This one reminds me of Dorothy and Toto's Kansas. Great idea below for 'total'. Wonderful, really. And the shadow play in 'communication' is inspired.

Thanks for checking in on me... no problems here. Just too busy and lazy to contribute. I'll get a round tuit sometime. Trying to get the second kid off to college (though she doesn't need any help... the little smartie), so we're in the last throes of pre-empty nest. Her school activities, a new gallery for my business partner, a pending move for our service bureau's production facilities... and here I am using up all your comment space. 'Scuse me.

Your stuff is way cool. You inspire me to get back in the swing of things.

LOL such DRAMA, great colours and flare!

There's no place like-- the basement?
This is beautiful, scary, and funny all at once!
haha- to the same expression on Toto's face as yours. Always love spying the details in your paintings-- I spy the cross, the water bottle, a wallet(?), Lulu- and love the the spots of bright colors [clothing & flowers] against the darks.

carla said...

Awesome! I love the stormy turbulence of the sky...very Wizard of Oz-ish, indeed! Do I see a scary face forming in the clouds?

Nicely done! And a great idea.

Janice said...

your words and your painting can both stand alone.. but together.. are simply a delight.

isay said...

the strokes really went well and boy, you've done a great job with the light and the formation of tornado and dark skies. i like the movement in your painting and the facial expressions esp that of toto....

steve said...

This makes me nostalgic for the days when my mom would hang laundry in the backyard on a clothesline. Luckily I don't recall anything like this happening. I spy yet another wonderful painting from you!

the heartful blogger said...

Wow, this is excellent. You are queen of shadows and light. And I love how your paintings are always alive.

Ellen Byrne said...

Linda said...

the movement is like an eye magnet, i love it!

I spy what has blown our way in Aus! Climate change is quite alarming! Although, this is probably more common your way and still spy alarm in your strokes, yet it's swept up in a delicious manner :)

miragee said...
