Looking for My Paints

I looked in all the cabinets for these paints which I was SURE I'd left here in Naples. Luckily, I'd brought my 'car kit' with me so I did have paint but I've been puzzling over the missing paint and looking in closets and drawers over and over again. I discovered it after I used up the food my loving sister Anna Marie had laid in for us before we arrived. She enjoys buying flowers and stocking the fridge for us. So, as I used the last of the food piled on the middle and least visible shelf I found the paints! Since I played hookey at the pool today and didn't post a painting , I'll finally reply to Joyce Washor's tag and list five things about myself and tag five other bloggers to do the same. This is a way of getting people to visit other blogs and of course let others know a little more about you. My five things are: 1. Never been to Disney. 2. I stopped reading as much as I once did when I got a computer. 3. If I'm not painting I'm reading. 4. I view everything as a painting whether it's the highway through the windshield or the produce at the market 5. I'm a gypsy in my soul and I would go away 3 times a month if I could. These are my taggee's, Pablo Villicana Lara, Karen Appleton , Janette Jones , Kelley MacDonald & RDL. Check them out.

Never been to Disney ? !!!!
I love Disney World.
I also look at everything as a painting or how would I paint that. Makes people think I am not paying attention to them.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will come back by and browse when I have a little more time.

Hi Mary,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving so many kind and interesting comments. I have responded to most of them at my site - but I wanted to visit you and say how much I relate to all you said. In addition, I can totally relate to all 5 of your tag items!!!! I am so sorry that you "lost" your studio. It looked absolutely beautiful in your postings on your other blog. So glad you have been able to replace it with something similar. I can't believe how organized and clean your studio looked! Yikes, I think I should take some time to clean up!!! Talk to you again soon.

Hey Mary, thanks for the visit to my blog and yes, horses are beautiful, powerful and very fragile.
I often think of the time that I could have saved if I`d not have been looking for stuff I needed to finish a project. I like your painting style.

Hi Mary, thanks for tagging me, it was fun to come up with new info to share.

In Mexico we call them Duendes: a playful spirit that plays tricks on you like hiding your car keys when you're sure you left them on the counter or moving paints that you had next to you while painting.

I've had exactly that annoyed, almost panicky feeling looking for a tube of Droste bittersweet pastilles.

You and my husband would get along fine! He hates the computer and Disneyland too (and all amusement parks). I like both of them.

Roller coasters are my favorite cheap thrill (only the old wooden kind with steep drops and not much transverse jerking... too hard on my neck.)
