* Mystery Girl

I know nothing. Honest! She showed up on the canvas, carrying a heart, wearing a halo with two sheep following her. Hasn't said a word. Not. A. Word. "Mary had a little lamb?", I asked with a giggle. hmmmmm .... no answer. So, your guess is as good as mine at this point. She is very roughly blocked in. I started with head and shoulders when she told me she wanted to be almost full figure. Ok, so she did say something! Here she is, the mystery girl herself ... TA DA ...

Hope spring is coming to an area near you.  Thanks for dropping by.  Nice to see you here.

I am gradually approaching the period in my life when 

work comes first. No longer diverted by other 

emotions, I work the way a cow grazes.

Sometimes I actually feel like this when I'm painting!


  1. Nice start Donna.Just out of the blue? Wish I could do that!

    Spring coming our way yet. No but I did hear the Groundhog saw his shadow. Heres hoping!
    hugs Lynn

  2. How lovely to get such a nice visitor! Great start, Donna! When are you coming for your cake? It won't keep much longer....Hugs, Valerie

  3. Very nice start. Your paintings are all wonderful. Hope you have a great week.

  4. Lol ! I'm sure Mary will reveal herself in due course most probably wants to keep you guessing but she does look rather fetching with those lambs in toe !
