“…and reminiscing…” • acrylic on reclaimed wood/14½” x 22″ (approx. 36.83cm x 55.88cm)

Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

I refuse to waste paint so anytime I’ve squeezed too much onto my palette and have leftover, I paint nonsense on an empty board or two that I have laying around. They’re there for that purpose and always ultimately become paintings themselves. This is one of those. It went through a horribly ugly stage for a quite while (all my paintings do! 🤣) and then, recently, BAMMO! This beautiful scene emerged! Yay!!!

As this painting finally was taking form and winding down, Little River Band’s song ‘Reminiscing’ would take my mind hostage every time I sat down to work on it.

My beautiful man and I went to see them in concert a few years ago and they were WONDERFUL! We danced and sang and had a blast! I shall now plant this song in Your brain! 😅 Enjoy!

Cheers and Hugs all around!

    You know Katy, I guess you should keep squeezing slightly extra paint always if leftovers create such beautiful creations!!!

    Such a mellow but uplifting song, isn’t it? And this is a beautiful painting, Katy, I never would have guessed it started out from just wanting to use up leftover paint! I love the variety of colours and the delicate detail. I wonder what those two down by the houses were thinking about while they wave up to us. “Bet you wish you were here!” xx

    Your painting reminds me of a movie… I don’t recall its name, it could have been an adaptation of Jules Verne’s A Journey to the Center of the Earth. Anyway the characters arrive to the center of the Earth and they find a beautiful world, similar to the one you painted. So yes, I’m reminiscing as well. 🙂

      Thank You, Shashank!!! You know what’s funny? I’d wanted to paint a lady with long black hair but the hair kept blending her into the background and I couldn’t make it pop….so changed it to blond. My man’s hair is gray and I was laughing as I finished this and realized, “Ah. It looks Iike I was painting us! 🤣 And YES!!! Dance, dance, dance!!! Always!!! Cheers and huge hugs to You! I hope You are having a happy weekend as well!!! 🤗❤️🎼💃🏼🕺🏼🌟💖!

          Yep! “…because of background” or truly, more-like my lack of skill and patience!!! 😂And Aw man! Sorry You are quarantined again! There’s A LOT of that going on all over the world, isn’t there? 🤣 Lord have mercy! I think we are about to get slammed with some more quarantines here in the USA as well. I hope You’re seeing some great movies!!! I had a crazy LAZY day yesterday of doing just that….but it was just laziness. 🤣 Happy gaming and I love Your laughing attitude! You gifted me some laughter with it! Thank You! And my Mr. Gray hair, Bill, is going to laugh at being called that. He’s 61. You’d never know it…but every once in a while, in a craggly old man voice he’ll just randomly shout out, “I’m 61!!!” 🤣🤣🤣 Cheers and Huge hugs Your way! Hang in there!!! 🤗💕🙏🏼💕😃!
