such as a pair of Jack Rogers in gold...or silver...
or...a pair of Minnetonka thunder bird mocs in brown suede...and last...but not least... I want a new one of these...because my original got apple sauce spiled all over it years ago by a family at an outreach I was doing for the museum I worked for at the time...
See...I find inspiration in lots of things...and the colors of these items are colors you will see in the summer painting series.
my husband, my dog, my family, my art supplies...my shoes...my bags...my baubles...
I think I like these things because no matter how thin or pudgy I get or feel...these things always make me feel a bit sparkly and fab.
One of my greatest bauble sources is my friend Kristin Pearce, http://www.kristinpearce.com/ first of all she has great taste (you should check out her blog it's on my blog roll) second of all she is really good about reading you and your style before she recommends anything to you.
Bellow is a picture of some KP designs (available currently in her etsy shop) ...I just find them to be so versatile and they have such longevity--they're classic staples each and every piece!Anyhow--baubles...they make me smile, they give me butterflies...I adore them.

alas do not worry the hour wasn't bad, I read Time and People front to back...and was serenaded by a pair of dueling toddler brothers in the row in front of me...awesome!
Point is, I made it!
Jess got me and we drove into Georgetown to her cute little blue house with the white door...
After dropping bags, we hit the ground running and went over to M street for lunch at Clydes (Blue Moon and burger) then a little shoppy shop, J.Crew, Anthro, VINEYARD VINES style...that's right, I love my VV cherry. It was GREAT! We came back to Chez Morse, and took the pups to Rock Creek Park...up a hike to a place called, "The Meadow" which reminded me of the Meadow in Twilight (only Edward was missing...*sigh).
Then...dinner at Paolo's with Dudley, who never fails to make me laugh. His stories of working on the Hill for a LA Senator are classic...
3 Sangrias and one scary walk to Georgetown later (scary because of the infamous Exorcist stairs and Don playing the music to it when we were stumped and called him)...we went to sleep.
...it's now 7:30am on Day 2.
...sorry I don't have pics to share yet, but I will when I get back. In the meantime...follow the adventures along live on Twitter...where I am @Dubonics.
...and yes, the sketch book was broken in and I am happy witht he work so far.

I was wondering, do any of you remember --la vibora de la mar--? That's another good one and could be fun to do...
Anyhow I have added to the list of paintings...
So thanks as always for following and giving me your input...so until tamale!
In the mean time I will look up the lyrics to Vibora de la Mar.

I saw these yesterday while at Marshall's. I simply adore the color combination as used by the theme...normally I would want this to be reds and blues...but I love the green and pink palate.
I think I'm going to have to work with this and come up with something...other than wishing I had a baby girl who's room I could stick these in.
Later tonight I will post my working list of paintings I will be working on this summer.
