Mermaids and Syd Barrett

I have a new painting!

It is really cute, one I've wanted to paint for a while.... click below to see:

"Mermaid Mother and Child" ORIGINAL PAINTING

Isn't that adorable?

I know, I know - people keep asking if I'll do a Christmas painting, and here I paint some mermaids. I will try to do one soon - it has just been hard for me to get in a wintry spirit, it's been in the upper 80s this week here in Florida and that's not exactly a winter wonderland right now. I will try to paint something holiday-ish soon though, I promise. I also have a neat Alice painting planned....

I am SO EXCITED - yesterday was the Syd Barrett Estate Auction. I won his pillow, which I wanted very much. It was a simple sqaure cushion with psychedelic wavy bands on it. I am so happy I won. The other items I wanted each ended up going for like $10,000-$20,000 - eek. I wanted his art supplies and easel and guitar and bicycle too, but there's no way I could do that right now.

And what am I doing with Syd Barrett's pillow? I'm going to use it to sleep on, duh! Seriously!

Not much else going on around here - I'm feeling much better, and now Matt is too thank goodness. No more sickness for us! Still trying to track down a Nintendo Wii for Matty, but they are hard to come by without getting price-gouged. Bah.

Okay, I'm off to find some food, starting in the kitchen.
