BALANCING LIFE DAY-TO-DAY

4 GLOBES*
14"h x 8"w pastel

Funny how some paintings resonate above others with an Artist.

This is one for me and always have been quite fond of it.

Such a balancing act with the elements. . . as with life. 

All appears calm and orderly, but just takes one slip!

Everyone knows the Contessa is so fond of jelly. 

Her donuts are so dramatic while oozes with the sticky stuff.

What can I do but strike with another jelly?

JELLY BATTLEFRONT

YIKES!
A little birdie told me the Contessa is striking tonight.  

So I'm getting my soldiers in a row 
to prepare for her jelly siege. 

When . . .  oh when will she strike?

IT'S A BATTLE OUT THERE!

It's a jungle in
the real world . . .
even with couture 
jewelry.

So I have gathered
my little men
for battle.

After all . . .
it's survival of the fittest.


And . . . here's an up-close
look at one of my little
men earrings.
(Ha! Think these are going
to be the next huge fashion statement?)

With rain and thunderstorms predicted for the next few days, 
I just want to snuggle in a blanket and drink coffee. 
And how luxurious is it with a silver pot?

YOU SCREAM, I SCREAM COFFEE

A MORNING CUPPA

What is a morning without coffee or tea, 
especially on a cloudy, overcast day?
