Grandson: Grandpa? [pause] Maybe you could come over and read it again to me tomorrow.
Grandfather: As you wish.
from The Princess Bride
The story is over, the book is closed, the last characters are gone and the paintings are done. Another 30 Paintings in 30 Days has flown by like the wind.
And, as is my custom, I end this challenge with a self-portrait. My big sunglasses were the perfect prop. A wild color palette and some quick and dirty brush strokes. There is a lot of determination and power in this one. I'm glad I gave it a go.
But why "Lola" you might be wondering?
So when I am getting ready to speak in public or demonstrate art, I might occasionally call her out to give me a little more showgirl quality. WWLD? What would Lola do? She would sashay up to the microphone and put on a show. Lola isn't afraid of anything. Jen might be shaking in her shoes, but Lola is shaking off her shoes to dance.
Lola and I want to thank you, dear reader, for following us on this thirty day painting marathon...I am sad that it is over, but ready to rest and go back to a less frantic routine. Never fear, twice-weekly blogs will continue and 30 Paintings in 30 Days returns again in September. In the meantime, sweetlings, thank you, thank you. I am honored by your presence on this journey. xo
