Fantasy for the Soul

Hellooo, Hellooo! I'm here in blogland to share a little art, life and beauty with you all..

Since my last post it has been raining almost non stop. Monday we were blessed with half of a day of beautiful sun so I jumped in the truck and headed to the nursery for some new things for the garden.  Two rose bushes, a jasmine and honeysuckle vine later, I was a happy girl! Of course it hasn't stopped raining long enough to plant them but I hear the weekend will be lovely.  I can't wait!

So while the thunder storms raged on, I cuddled in my magic chair with some chamomile tea and dreamed of Mermaids on sunny beaches and flower faeries in the gardens and forests...

It makes me happy to think of such fae things - there is enough harsh reality out there so why not indulge in a little fantasy for the soul?

Siren of Mystery

Today the coast is supposed to be clear of the storms so I am going to joy ride to Bandon by the Sea to do a little book shopping and maybe even Coos Bay to visit my friendly art store there.  I'm hoping there will be sun breaks so I can snap a few photos for you!

Jasper went to the vet again yesterday for his eye and got a big shot. He is feeling so much better today I feel o.k. to leave him outside while I go and play!

So adios amigo , I'm off... Don't forget to feed your soul with a little fantasy or two... or three...

Forever in art,

Jessica (JessiVille)

Hey Jessi...glad to hear Jasper is feeling better...it kills me when my kids or cat are sick. Anywho, loving the fantasy, Siren of Mystery. Love how the background comes through..sooo cool. Really gives an underwater feel.

Jessi ! I hope I did everything that gave you trouble with comment? Honestly, I don't know what the problem is... um... hahaha I think it's blogger that's messing up ppl, isn't it? Anyhow, I did what you told me on both blogs.. :%
There's something about you and mermaid.. your mermaid pieces are very mesmerizing ! it's like you're completely connected to it, maybe you are one in the fantasy land ! =)

Hi there - i agree - fantasy - we need to dream, to indulge in imagery it is essential for the artist - where else can we find the best inspiration - our own imagination and fantasies - indeed food for our souls

This Siren is Beautiful!

I wish it were possible for you to send some rain down our way :)
Although, every Summer we drive up the coast to get away from the heat and enjoy the lovely greenness....and awesome rock formations on the beach....we adore Oregon!!

Maybe we can meet for coffee (or chamomile tea..heehee) sometime? :)

SHE. Is. Stunning! I love the blue quality of her skin - and the movement in your piece! Just stunning.
Okay, so I thought - how cool would it be to do a series of small canvases for your studio that has your botanical patterns (like those you use for some hair and background to your ladies?) on them and then put a painted (and glittered, natch ;) initial on top - to spell a word? Just an idea . . . xoxoxo

I love the translucency of your backgrounds! In this one, it looks like a white jellyfish is by her neck. Very cool! Wishing you sunshine and warm days. - Karen

Such a fitting painting for your raining weather. She is gorgeous! I like the added touch of the siren poem.
