A different kind of painting

Lately I've been doing a lot of painting. Not the canvas kind though, I've been painting walls! I finally got a condo!
I had been looking for a year, and lost out on many of them. Finally the perfect one came along and I wasn't about to let some ugly walls ruin the deal. I have taken on the big job of painting all the walls.
I decided to go with a color scheme of my cat Lily. Cream, taupe and blue. Plus my black furniture will add to the whole siamese feel. So far I have the walls painted cream and my bedroom is blue. The sun room will be taupe.
In the photo above, I wanted to see what a big babushka painting would look like :) I painted it just for fun before I finished painting the wall.
Thanks for being patient while I continue to suit up my new place.
Hugs to all!

Feelin' HOT HOT HOT!

WOW! Is it ever HOT here!!! We are on day 4 of a heat wave here in Toronto. I am soooo grateful to have air conditioning. Just walking to the post office wipes me out. It's like an oven out there!

When I was a kid I would swim in the pool at our condo every single day. I swam like a fish. Now that I have to wear glasses 24/7 I can't go swimming. Plus, I don't like what the chlorine does to my skin and hair.

Back then I didn't care! My hair was knotted and bleached out from the sun. I remember I had a swim suit that had little Canadian maple leaves down the sides. I was SO TANNED that where those little white leaves were I got a tan. Little tanned maple leaves down my sides. I remember I also had a barbie doll that would tan in the sun. Do you remember that doll? I can't remember her name, but she was so cool! After about 10 minutes in the sun, the barbie would have tan lines.

HA! I just found the commercial on youtube:

My newest painting is a mermaid. The best thing to be this time of year!
Up for grabs on ebay.
