Blissbait Art | St. Simons Artist Katy Boyer/'homeward bound'Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

Those of You who have been my friends for a while may vaguely remember this painting. I used to call it ‘coming to win us’ (a tribute to Cat Steven’s song ‘Longer Boats’. It was MUCH simpler/different back then! Walking by it one day I noticed it had gotten scratched and some of the paint had come off. I’d forgotten to seal it properly. In fixing it  I started to play and play and play. That was about 5 months ago of revisiting it now and again when the mood struck. This has been a fun journey! It’s finished/sealed and being set free now!

    I love your work! It makes me yearn for a place I have yet to see. It also reminds me of my time in Hawaii. Very natural, colorful and vibrant with loving emotions bursting from it. Lovely!!

      Thank You, Aimer! Isn’t he fun? I love that guy! I came close to calling this painting ‘guru’ or ‘i’ll follow the son’ but ‘homeward bound’ wouldn’t stop insisting….so. 😅I hope Y’all are having a wonderful weekend! Cheers! 🤗❤️😊

      Thank You, Peter! And I completely understand but just so You know, there is complimentary dramamine onboard! And ice cream! And mimosas….actually the flower falling down is a magic wand that allows You to conjure whatever would make Your journey the most satisfactory! I’m just sayin’….🤣🤗❤️😊

          I looked for the before later yesterday morning and when I found it I was stunned that I’d ever thought it was finished! I couldn’t bring myself to repost it! 🤣Methinks my muse may well have dug her fingernail across the canvas to nudge me back into this one! 😅Thank You again, Jo! I hope You have a wonderful weekend! 🤗💕😊
