"You've got a friend ...."

I wonder if this painting is finished? What do you think? I have to let it sit for a few days because I'm really not sure. Usually, I know --- yes! I'm done. It's done. But this is a little different, so I'm going
to allow them some time.

"You've got a friend" (in honour of James Taylor's song)
How are you all?  Thanks for dropping by and leaving your great comments.  I know I've missed lots of your posts - just can't seem to get 100% back to good health.  One thing leaves and another strikes me down.  Amazing!  Don't like it either.

Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by.  It's a beautiful day here.  Habibi and I are sitting out on our little covered terrace watching the hummingbirds and writing to you.  It's Friday - have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Oh, Donna. This is just lovely! I think it is my very favorite one of yours! I felt just like these 2 friends tonight when I met up with a childhood friend from almost 50 years ago! They look so happy together as friends. <3

  2. This is really beautiful Donna, they look so happy together! Great colours, too, and the little bird is a nice touch. i love how their eyes are closed! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Hey Donna! I am so glad you posted today. Maybe you are feeling better. I sure do hope so. Your ladies look very content and you always use the prettiest of colors. To me, it is really quite serene. The colors seem softer, more gentle.

    I am afraid as we age, it gets harder to bounce back. Whether it is slowly or not totally, we must bounce back. I too am sidelined with a fractured right hip.

    It really is good to see you painting and posting Donna.


  4. It is beautiful...just like all your other wonderful paintings. I hope you continue to feel better and back to your healthy self and enjoying that Sangria on your patio.

  5. Very peaceful painting, Donna. It is one you could look at for a long time and never tire. Two beautiful friends.


  6. Hope you get back to YOUR 100%. It's a beautiful piece of art- very lovely & serene.

  7. oooh, they are lovely! Feel better soon!

  8. I love their contented happy faces, donna. Let it sit for a bit and then you will know if it is finished! Here's wishing you strength and good health, a little more each day. Take a deep breath in an relax it out. Are you by any chance doing the free guided meditations with deepak chopra? I find them very helpful and I am trying to get into the habit! xo lenna

  9. This is beautiful Donna and it has so much feeling too! I am sorry you are not feeling well yet, hopefully that will change soon. Sorry I fell behind in my visits too. Take care, Big hugs, ~Diane
