You know that old saying...."Everything Old is New Again?" Well, it just isn't true! I'm sorry, Old is Old. I'm old so where are my old, new knees? Where are my old, new youthful cheeks? My old, new slim waistline? Gone. All gone, and they aren't coming back!
Sigh. I suppose whomever said that, wasn't thinking of me. I think they might have been thinking about fashion, or literature, or furniture, or maybe even....needlepoint designs? You see, I'm currently painting an 'old' design for a customer. This is a design that I created in 1993, and I have not painted it for at least 13 years..maybe longer. But, here I am, painting what I hope is a timeless design that appeals to those who love nostalgia and the softer side of life.
Oh oh! There I go again! I'm definitely enjoying the softer side of life right now, and it ain't so pretty. But this young lady is pretty, and I love painting her again.
Do you remember when you were a child (particularly if you were a girl), of dressing your cat in doll clothes? (The poor little things!) What little girl didn't do that? Oh yes...those were the good 'ol days. In the good 'ol days, I never had hair like this little girl, but I can sure paint it. That's the beauty of being an artist. You can create anything you like!
I hope the stitcher will love bringing this nostalgic scene to life with wonderful threads, ribbons, and interesting stitches. And I hope the stitcher will get busy on it right away, before I'm too old to remember that I designed and painted it!
