One is what I use for my little Word Weaver Icon.
You can read about how this one came about in a post from a post in July of 2013 called "Sisters."
This happy little drawing pretty much still sums me up. I'm wearing my favorite color, green. I've got a smile. My hair is an ever silvering brown, which I think is just fine... thank you very much! And, I'm wearing my dangly, squigly power earrings. (You can read about those earrings in a post called "We'll Just have Salad.")
|This is me with my sisters... The five of us went on a sister cruise, |
and we each had a canvas beach bag with this painted on them.
|Ha ha ha... It just occurred to me that maybe I've done a third. When I painted "Welcome Home Retreat," I mentioned that each cow had the personality of one of us sisters.|
The other pseudo-self portrait was a fuzzed out version of me in my beloved red bug.
I loved that little bug! It was a part of me... who I was... the girl with the red bug. I got it after both of my kids had cars of their own. So, I never had to share it. (Actually, when my son was 18, he once described it this way. "Whenever you come out of a store, just look for the most embarrassing car in the parking lot. That's my mom's car.) I tootled around in that little car for 9 years, and it was still basically in perfect condition.
... I have to sigh a little bit...
So many changes in my life these days... (one of which is that huge change of retirement in... 85 more school days... 😜😜😜...) It's just silly how choked up I got at watching my little red bug with the daisies in the vase drive away.
