Lentil, Summer, and Mermaid Soup

I'm working on this one, it's called "Lentil Soup".
What do you think ?

The pic below was published on Facebook
by my husband's cousin Andrea...
Isn't this pic great inspiration ?
Looks to me like a theme for a Dante Terzigni's illustration
or a summer painting from Cathy Nichols.
Summer is still here...

For the curious ones,
here's two more pics of Andrea, the summer mermaid.
She's smart, beautiful, and single
(She'll kill me after reading this post...hahaha)

Frustrated Woman's Diary

When I first saw this painting by Louis Stern (first image), I thought it was a woman wearing a low neck top just like in my sketch. I like to subtract too... I mean, taking pieces away from a rectangle or square to see what you get, then deciding what it is, then evolving it. It's a way to give birth to surprises. You can see it in the second image ? Can you see how the girl's arms ended up outside the rectangle in my sketch ?

I'm planning on painting today, hope today's the day. I get so frustrated when I can't. (I often forget this is a blog and not a diary, and that there's actually people reading it...shhhhhh).

I'm posting a couple more sketches to see if you can guess what they are...or what they're about to be once turned into art work.

Hubby just called: "I'm hungry, on my way home,

can we barbecue ? "

He'll have to eat "barbecued paint" cause nothing is

stopping me from painting today.
