Move to New Orleans if you want house guests.

Hi all y’all,

I was explaining to Maggie that it’s not summer yet. A difficult concept when it’s 90 degrees. My little poet said, “I don’t like it when the hot summer puts its heat into the cool spring air.” Word.

My friend, Julie, is coming to visit. She finished the school year teaching in California. I went back and counted the days we have had company on my calendar. Since Mardi Gras, Julie’s visit puts us at 54 days of house guests. When you live in New Orleans, the party comes to you.

I painted Nice Hair for pure fun. I love the two major colors. I think she looks like Kalinda on the Good Wife. I would have added a lot of jewelry, but she is all about her hair.

This is day one of my Mardi Gras Indian. I am going to sew sequins on his outfit. I am not sure what his finished colors will be. I am thinking dreamy background.

This is the access key pad for my studio. If you forget the code, it is underneath.

I am planning on finishing the Mardi Gras Indian this week. Julie is a painter, too, so she won’t mind.

I hope you are all having a great summer spring.

With unconditional, scaly love,

I paint to heal the world. If I fall short of that, I would like to make you smile. Gator Girl

  1. OMG! You are such a KEEPER of Place. I love your words about NOLA and guests. That is just what it says about living there in the NOLA 10 commandments you sent me. Brilliant follow up in this blog. And yes, I love your Poet’s words. And of course the key pad.

    OH MY GAWSH, your Indian. I am so in love!!!!

    Did you email this blog to Big Chief Romeo?

    I love you. Jan
