Buttercup: My Westley will always come for me.
from The Princess Bride
Oh Buttercup! You are the perfect speaker for today, Valentine's Day! And the perfect name for this whimsical duo, which was part of the Miami Watercolor Society demo last weekend and just now completed. This Buttercup and her little bird, Westley, make me smile. Don't we all need an adoring Westley in our lives?
Valentine's Day is particularly special in the Walls household, where it happens to be our wedding anniversary. And not just any anniversary, but number twenty. :) Thank you, sweet hubby, for an adventurous two decades! There were no pirates involved, but there was a fire swamp of sorts, except it was fire coral on a kayaking excursion where we both tried to be the leader. We knew from then on that there were going to be two strong personalities in this partnership. And that has turned out to be an understatement.
But when on a lifelong adventure, it is grand to have a strong partner.
As the grandson in The Princess Bride would say, enough of the mushy stuff.
Have you seen the Jerry Seinfeld series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? My latest binge-worthy obsession while obsessively needle felting new creatures. An obsession obsession, so to speak.
Except I have this dream of a show for the rest of us creative types, Artists on Amtrak Eating Appetizers. We probably wouldn't be as entertaining as Seinfeld's guests, but we might leave a trail of art across America. So I ask you, dear reader, if you were invited on this cross-country adventure, where would travel to leave your artistic stamp on the country, and what appetizers would you wish for?
