of facts or happenings. 
It consist mainly 
of the storm of thoughts 
that is forever flowing through one's head."

  3. Minnemie, your quotes match your paintings perfectly... another gorgeous painting. I can FEEL the worry or concern in this woman's heart. Absolutely beautiful and a wonderful choice of color combination. xoxo

  5. This is simply beautiful, you can really feel this man thinking. I wonder what it's about? Your work is lovely and I'm so glad you found me so I could find you! Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm also really fond of your zebra painting and the tomato one below too. :)

  8. I think Mark Twain also said something like "Eighty percent of our life takes place in our mind." So true! Beautiful painting!

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Jean. I was actually questioning the rectangles after the fact... was not sure whether they worked or not.

  13. Wonderful. I can't get over the fact that it is a small enough painting to fit an ATC and still have so much detail.
