Gypsy And The Tassel


Gypsy And The Tassel, 18″x24″, oil on canvas.  Sold.

Poor Gypsy, I think she will forever be tormented by the lantern tassel.  The other day it occurred to me that animals might be optimists.   Every morning Finnegan waits by John’s side and watches him eat his breakfast.   Every morning he anticipates John’s toast flying out of his hand and directly into his mouth.  This of course never happens, but Finnegan still sits patiently waiting for the day that this event will take place.   Maybe it’s because he’s not very smart,  but I think it’s because he’s optimistic.

    I want the world to know that Janet Hill is 4 sales away from her 10,000th sale on Etsy! That is a fantastic achievement. Think of the originals and prints and packaging and mailing never mind the creativity and talent and skill. Yes, I’m her proud mother but still Janet and John have so much to be proud of and to celebrate!!!


  2. Janet,
    I enjoy your humor and your musings on life so much! I love how you put yourself in the minds of the animals. This post made me smile.

    You have every reason to be proud of your daughter! Everything you write is true.

    Congratulations to all of you for the love and beauty and whimsy you bring to the world. It’s a delight to be here and share in it!
    Sending you a magical sprinkling of stardust*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
