Love this!
Denis Mortenson - Over 30 days ago
Em uses exclamation points, so I will try to match hers!!!!!!!!!! How's that????? I like the colors on this work. You do have a good eye for color. I often want to toss buckets of paint on blank canvases. Blindfolded!!!!!!!! Good show.
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Me to Denis lol, your killing me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the good color eye comment! I will often take a rag and smear my paints around, stand back and look at all the images appearing, not blind folded though! ;-))))

What a perfectly painted working. If wonder whether there was a subliminal message with the stylised heart? Great job :-)
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago

Daniel Hanson - Over 30 days ago
Your art should fill the halls of all grade schools. So bright and dreamy
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Daniel, you nailed it! This painting is for the kids and the speech pathologist hangs it in her office opposite a mirror so more people/kids can see it. Shes takes it off the wall for her autistic children to touch, it really captures their attention! Thank you so much for your appreciation! It was a very rewarding painting!

Reminds me of Lucy in the sky with diamonds!!!!!!!!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Not bad, hahaha, you know what that song was about?
Author/Illustrator, Tosh Baker - Over 30 days ago
I heard an explanation for the song once in a movie called "I Am Sam" when he named his daughter Lucy. I hope that would be the correct analogy of it...because I liked that. lol
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Nope, LUCY in the SKY with DIAMONDS, Spell out the first letter in each cap word......hehehe, Paul admitted to it in an interview in 2004.
Author/Illustrator, Tosh Baker - Over 30 days ago
OMG!!! Janet that is sad lol!!! if you have not seen I AM SAM you should watch it, her analogy was so much happier lol!!!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
At first it was said it was about his daughter, then later admission. I think I saw some of it, with Sean Penn?
Author/Illustrator, Tosh Baker - Over 30 days ago
Yes Sean Penn...it was a happy, even funny and sad movie all at the same time!! I loved it.

I love Janet's about riding the surf, going past the undertow.... I would say that describes my life too, except that undertow keeps sucking me down to my ankles till I get strong enough and pull them back out. lol :)
