Oh congratulations Tammie!
Your painting is so lovely. You have such a beautiful style.

Thank you for visiting and leaving such a sweet note.
I hope you had time to stop in over at Jeri's and see the clothes she fashioned for her dear little Dimity. The link is on my blog.
blessings,

Lovely use of colours and a very intriguing piece of art :)

roberto said...

Hi Tammie, everything can be inspiring for our creativity, right? perhaps, from a sad song, you can draw tears ... but tears for joy :) thanks for stopping by! :))))

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Aww, she's beautiful. I love the echo of the teardrops on her hat, very pretty!

Norma Conway said...

Your work always has a story to tell...or rather, it always tells a story to me. I love what you do. I used water as an element in what I did this week as well. Have a lovely week Tammie! Norma, x

Hello Tammie, your wonderful sad drawing looks like my mood this morning and to the rainy weather today. But as I scrolled down and saw my post it instantly cheered me up. Still can't believe how long it took. So for christmas post we are already far to late... uupps.

your raingirl looks adorable, even though she's a bit sad... Congrats on being a winner, it's always nice to get those surprises in the mail!

celine schroeder said...

yes, there are tears, but she doesn't look sad, she has a small smile. I think it is a perfect painting for the "swanlights"!

SLScheibe said...

Oh wow! She is just gorgeous! Even if she's sad she looks beautiful. What a super painting.

Beautiful face , expressive and tender!

Victoria said...

She is incredibly beautiful Tammie.. and full of emotion and soul! Her eyes are powerfully expressive and stunning and filled with thoughts and memories! She seems almost Angelic..in disguise..helping to heal others or take their sadness and heal them. How cool you sketched it on a plane..! I love her hat and the tears falling down like tiny poems!Beautiful!
yay..gorgeous treasures ..enjoy!
