Waiting For My Friend ... And Listening To "love" Music

Last week my friend Janet asked to meet me at Tacos Jalisco for lunch. We hadn't seen each other in a very long time. However, Janet is the kind of friend, who when you finally do connect again, it's as if you never skipped a beat! We had fun catching up on each others lives ... But before she got there, I had time to draw these folks and ...
  
...these folks!  Then Janet arrived and we ate "the Lynn" (burrito bowl) and talked and talked and talked!!  Thanks for coming, Janet! 


Music by my DH is always a special event! Some times daily!

This time while he sang some very romantic songs I drew and painted him live.

Lucky me
Having such a talented husband, who after that first song he sang to me in 1978 on our first date, Farewell to Tarwathie", is still serenading me and making my toes curl! ;-) 35 years later!

Happy paint party Friday and Sunday Sketchers!
Thanks for all your wonderful visits and comments, they feed my artistic soul!

  2. It's wonderful that your husband still makes your toes curl.:) Love your creativity and it nice to re-connect with a friend afore. I know what you mean about having a friend that you don't see for a time and when you do, it's like yesterday. Nice. Take care. Happy Paint Friday to you too.

  7. The best friends are friends that can pick up right where you left off, even years between seeing one another. Isn't it wonderful to have friends like that and to spend time together? The best is the romantic toe curling hubby and his ability to romance you through his songs. That's wonderful.

  10. Hi Lynn, loved to read your blog today, how nice to read about how your toes curl :)How good time you must be having, I love to sit and listening to someone play and sing. Yesterday we had a song contest in my school. 35 kids were taking part, 25 groups. It was so much fun and I ant describe how good they were and Im still thinking how they can stand in front of all the people and sing even 8 years old.
    Have a beautiful day.

  14. I love friendships like that. Because I've moved around a lot I have friends I rarely, if ever, see and it's wonderful when we do finally meet up to discover we just fall back into that same old familiarity - a sign of a good friendship, I think! And how wonderful to be serenaded by your romantic husband while you paint him!!

  15. One day soon I hope to go to a coffee shop and pretend I'm you and just start drawing. I'm so impressed with how you "just do it," and capture so much of life. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work. I always love it, but I REALLY love the photo of the guitarist and your portrait of him. What a great tribute!
