Crowned in Lime


she stood out from the rest 
a shapely beauty crowned in lime
she walked tall and languid
meeting life with her heart
for she knew the treasure
of life
met with an intimate stance
~


this is my first time to join Paint Party Friday
perhaps you would like to join in too!

  9. My first time, too! So nice to meet you :)

    Love the lime! I've only ever done one painting with hair that was not of a regular hue...and it was seaweed green for a mermaid. I really like this color...hmmm...lime...the possibilities :)

  30. This is just beautiful Tammie...sort of strange, as I was doodling last night and drew a butterfly lady that has this color hair and I swear she is YOU! In fact when I share her for Sunday sketches I will mention that she reminds me so much of you!

    Smiles and hugs - I wish I could paint! I am determined to try soon!
