Pin It
Oil, 8" x 16" on canvas panel.

I just returned from my Girl's Night Out in Hermosa Beach. What fun! (As I mentioned in yesterday's post, my dearest friend is moving to Oregon so we all went away for the night to wish her bye-bye1). These are also the girlfriends that put the flamingos in our front yard on our birthdays.
So I thought it might make sense to paint a flamingo for my girlfriend so she would always have one, as we will miss putting them in her yard on her birthday.

Lovely gesture on your part, and lovely painting.

What a wonderful going away present for your friend. Wish you lived near me so I could wake on my birthday to a flamingo in the yard! ha ha

I love the fun "traditions" like that!!

It would also be a good one for the gulf disaster support painting....

Also... I wondered.... If I "like" it on FB does it click on the "like" on this one too?? Of if I like it there AND like it here does it end up as "unlike"????
One of those deep questions to ponder... LOL
