artistic endeavors: purple parentheses

I shall start this post with coffee.
I did these canvases (it's like a mini puzzle) on....Thursday, June 10? Okay. So. 
I really can't see that this picture needs anything else, really...I mean, it has h20, coffee, a canvas...paint...um. That sounds pretty sweet to me.
I like the purple. I'm not sure anyone noticed, but I'm big into contrast:)
Obviously you can see, I decided on the quote later on in the creation.
It's nice that way.
Quite convenient.
Hint-hint. :)
I may or may not have said "awesome possum" when I finished this.
Rachel looked at me as if I had just stated I wanted to siphon Middle East oil with a straw.
Um. Crazy.
But I have to say, I was quite pleased with how the hand-writing look turned out. :)
How about you?

Well, on this day, I was in the back yard when the boys were driving this beast:
Today I was trying to catch up on the David study (once again--oh, and key word: trying) ....and ran into a day that was 6 blinkin' pages long. Usually they're maybe somewhere from 2-4 pages. But 6? And with Lyd bouncing in and out of the living room entertaining Anna and I with distracting cuteness and hilarity? Gosh. :) You don't want to know how long it took me.
Alright, I'll tell you.
2 hours.
Shameful, I know. But I couldn't just yell for Lyd to exit the room. She eventually left for grocery shopping with Mom. And Lyd truly was hilarious. Truly.
It's weird, not having painted for more than a week. Really weird.
Methinks another Parentheses is coming up soon... :)
Have a lovely Sunday night and early Monday!
Oh, and we randomly found out that we're part Dutch.
We knew that we were part Norwegian and German and a tiny bit of French (stress the very tiny) but now we find that Grammy's late hubby's late dad was part or mostly Dutch. How cool is that? I mean..it's always interesting to find out things like this.
How about you?
Who waves mosquitoes away? Don't normal people slap them wherever they might be--in the air or on a person? Hmm. I'm weird. I waved one away. :)
