even more lyric paintings!

Hello lovelies!!  Happy Tuesday evening!! I could not get my life together enough to share these photos with you any earlier today, so I'm posting them tonight - sweaty and tired and happy from another roller derby practice.  What is it about February that just makes me so sluggish?  Listen up February: I will show you!  (Show it what, I don't know.  But it will be shown!)

Here are a few more lyric paintings I wanted to share with you.  I've been slowly starting to advertise selling them to my Facebook friends, and they seem to be catching on.  People are becoming very creative with their colors and lyrics, and I just love doing them.  I can come home from work, lay on the couch with Paul, watch Star Trek and Buffy, eat ice cream, and paint away!  It's pretty much the best arrangement in the world. 

That top painting is a Rilke poem requested by an old friend.  I liked playing around with the square shape and with having less words on the canvas.  Directly above is a painting of the song lyrics for a friend's fall wedding.  I feel so honored that my work will be a reminder of their special day. 

And here is my absolute favorite lyric painting to date.  I LOVE light teal blue with red right now, and the song makes my heart go pitter pat (Make You Feel My Love - did you know Bob Dylan originally sang it?  I didn't.)  It's going to be a Valentine's Day present, so I'm not sharing a link to my post on Facebook, just in case.  

Doing these paintings has been giving me such great energy.  Now that I'm back into the swing of painting, I've been feeling inspired (and brave enough) to try more complex subjects.  It's been fun, but I don't have any samples to share yet.  But you can bet I will when I do.  

Hope your week has been off to a great start!  And as always, thanks so much for reading.
