In My Dreams

It's getting pretty bad when you start dreaming of finishing a painting! I've been so busy with sewing, tending to children, and every day necessities that I've neglected something that is very important to me. I woke up this morning with household chores to accomplish and, although I did do the important ones, I figured the rest could be brushed aside today so I could get my 'fix' in! Take a look at what I'm working on....

(Baia do Sancho)
Some details need to be added and defined but I'm pretty happy with the overall. I borrowed this photo from a friend who visited Brazil for her honeymoon. Maybe one day I'll visit it.....Na, I'm too afraid of traveling overseas! It's that whole 'get-locked-up-in their-prison-system-sort-of-thing'...not that I'd do anything to get locked up for. It's just that I eat collard greens and cornbread and they don't...ya know? No, we're still on the same topic...and there's still that airplane ride! How about YOU visit it and send me the pics, okay?!!
