In to P!NK!

It's almost time again to post our art for Summer of Color and for once I am ready! This next week is pink week.  To get inspired I put in my     P!NK'S Funhouse dvd and rocked out for a while with my latte' this morning.  Interestingly enough my painting turned out rather soft in spite of the raucous fun sound and visuals. 

I was inspired by P!NK'S performance of "Glitter in the Air" and picked up on the softer nuances of of the visuals and the song itself is a lovely one.  It is one of P!NK'S stunning aerial performances.  So anyhow, here is my entry...


 Glitter in the Air

This one I stayed with from start to finish without a break except to make another latte'.  I wanted to make sure I kept the same inspirational vibe I was riding on.

I want to thank everyone for their lovely and encouraging comments this last week!  You all kept me focused on this challenge - thank  you!  Also I want to welcome the new followers to my blog.  I get so excited when I have another like-minded soul link up!

In the news - Jasper has recovered nicely from his eye operation 12 days ago.  He is happy and in the pink!  He is well enough to be rousting the cat and she is not thrilled!  Poor little girl - she is getting on in years and wants to play on her own terms!

We've been having beautiful weather and I have been running around trying to catch up on all the stuff that got pushed aside for wintertime (almost 8 month's of it this year)!  So I will be starting to engage in summer cleaning as spring cleaning doesn't work well in the pouring rain, lol.

This next week it looks like I might have a little more time for arting in between the cleaning sessions.  I can't wait to spend a little more time at home around the house and garden and less time running to the vet and doctors appointments etc., etc...!

Sung-Hee  http://sungheereginahong.blogspot.com/ is having a Silly Me Doodle Party link up at her blog.  Check it out!   

I'll be stopping by your blogs to enjoy your art for pink week and to and visit all my regulars as well!  Keep on arting everyone!

Forever in art,
Jessi

I love your girls....they all exude such a magical quality...be it confidence or maybe an inner wisdom, they each have a strength that compels....and undeniable beauty that bewitches!

Janet said...

She's fantastic! I love her eyes and the pink flowers on her head. Beautiful!!

Maggie said...

First let me begin by saying how happy I am that Jasper is feeling better. May the worst be over. Your newest art is another beauty. She is absolutely lovely. The background is very interesting and intense. As for P!nk, Glitter in the Air makes me cry (LOL) in a good way. Love it!

Clare said...

I love this painting - when i looked at her i thought futurist - sometime in the future, she looks peaceful and wise as if she knows more than we know now. the background adds to this feel its almost elusive with a hidden quality.

Micki Wilde said...

Love your colour choices in this painting!!

'pink' is great to listen to while painting, I listen to her albums a lot ;)

linda said...

Jess, another beautiful woman! She looks very much at peace and I adore her piercing blue eyes. As I have said before you have a very unique style.

PaperPumpkin said...

Oh, this is just lovely! Thanks for reminding me today, too...I have been under the weather and haven't been creative for a few days but your PINK is wonderfully inspiring to me this morning. LOVE your background, too! Enjoy your Sunday, ~kathy

Diane said...

Oh--I love this pink piece--I'm not a big fan of the color--but I've discovered after working on mine--that I have should have been giving it more of a chance--so many shades of pink. And just look at your lady--beautiful!!

Micael "Rabbit" Chadwick said...

One of my favorite of her songs. She's always a great source of inspiration.

Awesome interpretation. It's been so interesting to see how we all worked this color this week.

Kristin said...

She's really really purty! She reminds me somehow of a movie scarlet - with that turban and soft, feminine colors! I love that she turned out soft despite the pumped up music! AND that scraping and shot of blue - perfect touch, natch ;) xoxo
