Tulips, frills and shoes


This picture doesn't really do the painting justice. I'm thrilled with how this turned out - it's a biggie too - destined to go over the fireplace on my man's new pad. Hope he likes it!

It came very intuitively. I love it when a painting almost creates itself. I think the experts call it 'flow'. I like a bit of flow :)

It's also a step away from poppies to - tulips!

Tulips are actually my favourite flower - especially the frilly ones. I guess I'm a frilly girl at heart. I love floaty skirts, beads and feathers to wear in my hair. I found these shoes on Pinterest this week:


Wish I knew where I could get them from! If you look through my style board you'll find a bit of theme going on!

In fact, seeing as I'm not dressed yet (despite being up for nearly 3 hours!), today I shall mainly wear 'hippy' with copious amounts of jewellery. Yes, there should be much jangling as I walk and sparkles - lots of sparkles!

  4. The painting and shoes match so well. Your style is easy and carefree and that is a wonderful way to be. Yes colorful hippie clothes and lots of jingling when you move.
    Have a great weekend

  11. Loving the colour here!
    Gorgeous work.
    xo

    I think that the shoes may be separate from the beading...I think the beaded part is foot wrap...I've been looking at patterns for these lately and it looks like this might be the case! Though maybe not...It's very hard to tell! With the foot wraps they loop around your toes and you can wear them with shoes...

  21. Gorgeous painting Lisa - it has an imaginative dreamy feel to it - beautiful. And those shoes are fab I agree! I like a bit of sparkle and pretty. One of my best mates laughs at me when we're shopping because I'm like a Magpie attracted to shiny sparkly pretty. Even if the item is unsuitable or not what I need I find myself drawn across a shop floor to the sparkly & imaginative.

    Hope you have a weekend full of jangly joy!
    Hugs
