Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!!!

• • •

P.S. My dear friend Jo said this post made her blue. Looking at it again I had to laugh because she DOES look really sad! Not that there’s anything at all wrong with sorrow…but this sweet lady actually has what feels to me to be a very loving, compassionate smile on her face. I felt like she came out with a huge heart full of Love for All of Us….but couldn’t stop seeing her in my mind’s eye backlit by the moon. So….Jo….here she is in full view! Not so sad!!! 🤗❤️😊

    There’s so much kindness and compassion expressed in her loving eyes and soft composure. I love the mood. It feels like a dream, gentle, yet full of emotions. You’re wonderful, Katy ❤️💕❤️💕

    A beautiful haiku. And I’m so glad you showed the un-blued image – her face transforms from melancholy to full of love. Amazing how a smile can make so much difference. Lovely.

      Aw! Thank You, Diana!!! Yeah….it’s really wild how much of our face we use to smile. I was laughing about this the other day. People look oh so serious everywhere You go these days….was sitting in my car the other day after running lots of errands and just feeling a little sad about how serious everthing feels out in the world. Then it occurred to me to put my mask on, look in the mirror and smile. Hilarious!!! You couldn’t even tell I was smiling!!! OHHHHHH!!!! Wow. Great lesson there! So….yeah! Thank You! I’m glad I posted the un-blue image as well! Not that there is anything wrong with sorrow or being serious…but what a very fun reminder that probably quite often things aren’t what we think we are! I could use that reminder on a daily basis!!! Cheers and huge hugs Your way!!! 🤗💖😊

        I smile at people with my mask on. I hope they can see it in my eyes (crows feet!) it even if they can’t see it. We need lots of goodwill these days. 🙂 Keep smiling!

    I love the poem and the painting both ways my friend. Blue has so many lovely meanings for us poets but perhaps she needed to see that smile because so many of us still can’t tell when we are out if people are smiling or not. I have really missed seeing people’s expressions.

    Happy Saturday to you my sweet friend. I hope your weekend is full of wonders and laughter. Love and many hugs to you dear Katy and all your firefly friends. 🤗💕❤️🧚‍♀️🦋love Joni

        I was half joking. I didn’t mean it as a critic. 🙂 But in any case, the lady without the blue shadow has a big smile. I like that. Keep the original, though. It’s quite interesting. It could be my screen’s fault that her smile wasn’t visible the first time. Thank you for taking time to show me her true colors. 🙂 💕

          OH MY GOD!!! I was typing the reply of the century to You!!! And it ERASED!!! Laughing so hard now!!! Ok. I’ve had a glass of wine and very likely shouldn’t be blogging right now but I’m SOOO behind and didn’t have time this morning!!! I’ll bullet-point condense! Here goes:
          1. YOU ROCK!!!! PLEASE stay YOU! I am never, ever offended and never feel critiqued by You!!! 💖
          2. Don’t remember if we knew each other back then and I deleted all the previous art on my blog when I took a long break; but my beautiful man, Bill’s, AMAZING sister Terry died of cancer 2 years ago. NEVER in my life did I think I’d see the Grace she gifted as she died. Almost 6 weeks in hospice….knowing that was her fate. She changed me forever with her humour, Love and Grace while passing.
          3. I drew/wrote much as she was dying about her passage and just her. She loved it all.
          4. I started this drawing when she was dying. It was of her….she was a dancer….but thought it was ugly and never revisited it.
          5. Cleaned my computer recently and found about 20 drawings I had thought the same of. Have been working my way through them.
          6. This looks NOTHING like Terry….it just came out like this. And I loved her. She feels like an Angel to me. I felt so much love and sweetness coming from this drawing.
          7. I AGREED with Your comment!!! Looking at her; imagining not knowing the story or what she looked like without the dark sky…I thought she looked pretty sad and had a good laugh at that….that’s why I wanted to show You what she actually looks like!!!! Also…God knows I spent my Youth exploring/experiencing every colour of life outloud and Lord! I had some intensity to work through and had no pause putting anything out there once I gave myself permission to feel! These days though….been there done that! The world is sad enough and I am fine….the last thing I want to add to the plate is sorrow on any level…although I truly respect all forms of expression!!! It’s just not my interest right now! So I joyfully wanted to share this sweet Angel or whatever’s compassion! And You are sooooo welcome! I cherish Your dear presence!!! And no…it wasn’t Your screen. Okay. I’m off to try and make a dent in all my tardiness! YOU ROCK!!! Cheers and Huge hugs! 🤗❤️🙏🏼💕😊

            I think you captured the spirit of your sister-in-law perfectly. The lady you painted reminds me of a Disney Princess – beautiful, dainty, fragile, but yet so strong. 💕 All the trials of life shaped you in the artist you are today, Katy. And I like what I see. YOU ROCK!!!! PLEASE stay YOU! 🙂 ❤️
