Don't keep a redhead waiting

A fun one. I used to have a roommate who looked like this, and at least in her case, the fiery-tempered redhead thing was true.

When it rains, it pours--or, as they say in Spanish, llueve sobre mojado (it only rains on places that are already wet). I received three blog awards in a row, from Kelley MacDonald, Ann Reyes, and Karen Bruson. Thank you, m'ladies!

The "rules" are: tell who gave you the award and make their name a link on your post; put the award icon on your post; list some artists you admire and their links.

Here's a few artist bloggers that you might like to go check out if you don't already know them:

SamArtDog (neighbor, dog lover, artist)
Astrid Volquardsen (mostly in German but don't let that stop you)

You have such a flair for color. Love the turquoise and blue combo. I would never think to do that and it works so well here.

SamArtDog said...

Thanks for the mention, Jala. But me and the dogs aren't new bloggers. We've just been sending posts from this outpost across the street, which I guess makes us outposters (not imposters). In spite of ourselves, we run a damn good blog over here. :o]

Thanky thanky!

Sigrid said...

Thanks Jala! Nice blog you have :)

I love that place (on the woman's back) where the turquoise and red hair meet and that sliver of blue sneaks into the hair. Nice.
Congrats on the sunshine award!

Sonya Johnson said...

Thank you kindly for this, Jala! It means a lot. And congrats on your award.

There's a sense of mystery and intrigue of your redhead - for whom does she wait? Love that!

Mona said...

Love the redhead and the title is perfect. Nice electric blue highlights.

And look! Your painting matches your award.
Could this figurative be the start of some new direction for you?

Now, wait, here's a challenge: let's all try something that's out of our usual genre!!!

Congrats on your being hit in the face with the Multiple Award Pie. No small wonder.

Thank you, Jala, for the lovely mention! I've been out of town for a few days, and it was a nice surprise to get home and find your happy message in the midst of all the other "stuff". Congrats on your multi-award-whammy!

Karen B - Thank you! It wasn't a color combo I'd planned; it just...happened.

Sam - I still consider you a new blogger, in the big picture. But yes, you and Garrett do run a great blog.

Tina - Welcome welcome.

Sigrid - You're welcome. I love your work too.

Hi Loriann - Cool you noticed that. It was an afterthought, and a good one, it turned out.

Hi Sonya - You're quite welcome.
I like how the redhead has no face--adds to that mystery.

Hi Mona - Thank you. Are you a fiery redhead, too?

Hi Bonnie - Thanks. Let's see, for me totally out of my genre would be...realist landscape. Something I've never done. Hmmm.... And for you? Abstract, maybe. ?

Hi Sherrie - Glad you got home to a happy message. :)

Jala, I missed somehow this post of yours... And I am here with the same award for you :-)) All the best to you and more time for your extraordinary art. In case you want to look at this flower for the time, here is the link:
