Back in April I wrote about a friend who visited me and brought me a metal lizard with brightly colored dots on it. Well, the day she came, she wore a blouse that was a pastel derivation of red-orange – I guess that’s how I’d best describe the color. In the course of correspondence she had talked about a blanket she made her grandson. It had bubbles and rubber ducks
on it.

Thus you have the visual ingredients for this painting: the background color, bubbles and ducks. I figured combining these elements would be a fun way to remember her visit. Working on the composition took some thought. This was a fun piece to paint.


  1. It does sound like it was fun. Capturing happy memories would put me in a good mood too. :) Nice job with this one, Mo.

    Thank you.

    I liked how my separate thoughts merged into this one piece. Yes, I get a happy vibe from it.

    Mo : )
