A paint day, and a pansy painting

Today was a super day, even though I broke a tooth last
night, and had to go to the emergency dentist. (The dentist
was great by the way -- kind, gentle, funny. Multiple
masked and also good at the job.) (As a former dental
assistant in high school, I am very clear about what's
good work.)

But the main thing is that I worked on a painting that
I've been making for the past six months on and off,
and I am almost done. Plus I talked to a super joyous
friend and laughed a lot, and even weeded the garden
a bit in between painting sessions.

I found this little pansy painting that I don't think I
showed you. I started it the minute pansies started
appearing in our previously flower free world, and
sending everyone's hearts into pure unmitigated joy.
And I did a bit more work on it tonight. So it was a 
paint all day day, and soon I'll show you the main

Have a loving your life day.

ugh emergency dental work sucks, but at least you had a good dentist

True Jennifer Rose,

But actually it was a pleasant experience, and it solved a
major gap in my existence. Not completely. That is a coupls
of weeks down the line.

Love your work.

These pansies are gorgeous ❣️❣️❣️❣️ Are these what you have mentioned occasionally before as being worked on? Looking forward to the finished work.

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much! All will be revealed, and no it isn't pansies. I hope to finish this painting today if all goes well. I do love pansies, and love painting them.
