Spring Flamenco by ursulav Spring Flamenco by ursulav
It's getting to be spring here, and that means that we're all losing our minds. The cat tears through the house at ninety miles an hour, rocketing up the walls like a small Siamese tornado. The squirrels are doing unspeakable things on the deck, often while standing in the birdfeeder. I am in Gardening Mode and cannot run an errand without another plant sneaking into the car and coming home with me. My husband...is apparently immune. Regardless, spring makes me loony. I want to dance. This is not a skill I possess, so I don't, but the urge to paint dancing flamenco piggies among the flowering narcissus was overwhelming.

This painting is pure frivolous cute with no redeeming social value whatsoever. My old drawing prof, a tough and humorless woman of great skill and gimlet eye, would die a thousand deaths. AND I REGRET NOTHING!
---------------------------
Ahem. 14 x 17.75, mixed media on illustration board. (rather larger than something this simply needed to be, but I felt like working big.) I like pigs. They have excellent faces. Not a fabulous scan, but there's a limit to what we can do with saturated reds, I suppose...anyway, original for sale, prints available, drop a note or visit [link] for details.

Hehehe... This one, in particular, caught my eye. Mainly because I have a bit of an on-going "Piggie" joke with my fiance, and this painting just fits... PERFECTLY. I came across one peice of work by you, and I've found myself going through your entire gallery for close to two hours now :blush:. I love your work (for one, it gives me that warm, childhood memories feeling), and what's more, I love your background stories for each one!

Ahhh, I adore you!! :D

Some how Flamenco seems like a summer activity to me. I like the pig though, it shows that any one any size can do Flamenco, its not an art its a pasttime

O.o piggy? that was so unexpected and different from what i was thinking. a very nice change. when i read the title, i thought it said flamingo for a sec ^^; but when i read flamenco, i definately wasn't expecting a pig. again, beautiful work. the description was very funny, especially the part about your apparent magnetism to plants and your husband's immune-ness. :D
