We are in the car again….heading to see one of the cutest girls we know. It’s her birthday. Her name is Lila Rose…..even her name is mega-cute. Lila captures your attention with her wonderful smile and dark eyes. Lila Rose is 1 year old. She is our friends Tony and Sara’s awesome baby! We are bringing her a stroller to push a doll in…and I picked out a really cute pop-up birthday card. I have my ukulele in tow and hope to sing to her at some point. We get to the party and have a great time catching up with our friends and of course the birthday girl. Before I realize it is time to eat cupcakes and open presents. I lose my nerve and put away the ukulele. I don’t know why I still get really nervous about playing it in front of people…so my awesome card will have to be my gift for today. She likes it. She is so cute. Now she has blue icing from her cupcake in her hair and on her striped dress. And Darwin is getting tired and cranky….time to go. So we head out. On the way home we talk about how we miss hanging with our friends. It has been a good night.
Don’t ask?! I really don’t know what the heck a penguin has to do with ANY of this but that is just what came out. This is a black footed penguin if anyone is interested. Painting #30! I can’t believe that I am really doing this. Anyway, this came together SUPER fast. I painted the whole thing in 45 minutes. I must be getting better. This is a bit different then the other pieces as this is entirely a painting. No mixed media. I think it is a little flat. But I like it none the less. Take care.
