Oh, glorious painting! I've had time today to read through the posts I missed and my heart is broken with the latest news about Sheldon. But, as you say, he is a lion...and lions can survive in the wilderness. They can...and he will.

Your Blogland Lane house is just exactly right, Renee, in every possible way. I think I might just move into yours rather than set up mine - I won't get in the way, promise! Tell you what, I can do the cooking when no-one else feels so inclined... On second thoughts, I will build mine because then you can come visit when ever you need a break.

Sherry Byrum said...

Oh I love this one!!! LOL It made me smile!! Bravo!!

Deborah said...

What am I looking at? My future! Apparently I shall become a nudest in my dotage...

Angela Recada said...

I love Alice Neel and her self-portraits! I should only look so good naked in my 80s! (What's she holding in her hand? A whip? Oh, it's only a brush. . . oh, well. . . Maybe it's to poke out the eyes of rude people who stare?)

Big hugs and lots of love,
xoxoxo
Angela

K said...

lakeviewer said...

Diana Evans said...

Chris said...

HA!

Allegra Smith said...

Not again! First it was my bad hair day, and now that drawing that I know it was inspired by a stolen photo of myself is here.
The horror, the horror!

Love you girl, I hope things are a bit calmer. Sending good thoughts and Healing Hopes to all with my love.

Sarah said...

She's beautiful. I wonder what she is holding?

Manon Doyle said...

OMG.... are my boobs going to look like that in thirty years? Maybe two? lol

Pattee said...

EXACTLY!!!!
That's what I feel like.....
I'll send you a picture that I named that "what are you looking at" It's an angry pod with an attitude...

I think that older woman looks a lot like I feel.

I'm thinking and praying Renee....
and loving you immensely

Silke said...

Oh, I love that, Renee! You made me laugh today and that is good!! Love, Silke

yoborobo said...

OK, Renee - who gave you my picture? Actually, I think she looks pretty good. Defiant. Defiant is a good thing 99% of the time, I think.

Sending you a hug - xoxoxoxox Pam

Artistic Accents by Darla said...

Ok, when I first looked I just loved her face and her attitude, but the more I look, I'm not sure what she's doing?? Is she knitting something?
Love, Darla♥

The Gypsy said...

:-) !!!!!

Snowbrush said...

Hey, Renee, what's that you've got there in your right hand? Looks like a riding crop, you nasty girl.

Jaliya said...

Ha! -- Smarty Pants! ... er, Smarty Pantless! ;-D

She reminds me, a little, in that arch expression, of my mother!

< giggle >

xoxoxoxoxo

Ingrid Mida said...

Fabulous image! Who is the artist?

Baino said...

Oh I wish she'd put some knickers on!

Marion said...

Is that a baton on her hand? Is she, perhaps, directing an orchestra in her lovely head? Why, I do believe she is, by jove! Jolly good, jolly good. Keep up the good work!! LMAO! Blessings, Love & Hugs, dearest, funny Renee!!! ;-)

in between your post about Blogland Lane and this one, you have made my night. I have mentioned it before but your blog is witty and never ever despondent despite whatever problems might be affecting you. Many thanks. A normal body, why was I so surprised to see a normal body? Why is it so odd? Great post and fantastic illustration. And as for Blogland Lane, I'm already packing my suitcases. See you soon.

Greetings from London.

I am finally commenting after following your blog for almost a year. I can't remember how I got here but I am so glad I found you! You are a true gem here in blogland and it seems you have captured the hearts of so many people, especially women. You are truly a giving and loving soul and I enjoyed your banter with some of your blog visitors even though it is difficult to follow your back and forth comments. You are very funny. I admire your boldness.

Alas, for today's post, it is very funny but you should try not to end your sentence in a preposition.

Have a wonderful day. You truly are an admirable and remarkable woman!

Ces said...

Hot dang! This woman reminds me of someone! ACK!

Rikkij said...

Renee- Not sure if my comment got through. if so, just ignore this one. Scared me-thought I was looking into a mirror! ~rick

Rikkij said...

Renee- my computer is really sucking! Ntried two comments. will just come back tomorrow and see if any got through. ~rick

Mim said...

I like the way she is holding what appears to be a white hanky!

rochambeau said...

I'm looking at a beautiful woman that's cool enough to pose in the nude!
How are you?
Hows everybody?
Sending you my VERY best wishes and
Love,
Constance

Chrisy said...

LDWatkins said...

I wish we could all do that,just throw off the wraps that bind us and shout out 'freedom- let me be!' But, then again guess the world's not ready for that. Frightening thought, actually. LOL G'night,all--Lynda

You can have any room you want Renee... for as long as you want... I think Sonia wants to come too...
Of course you can sleep with me... we'll squeeze in and have a slumber party... talking and laughing until the dawn...

Of course you will always be welcome in my gypsy caravan... because I love you so....

Hey Renee, if I had known that guy looking in my window was going to draw what he saw I would have put some clothes on.
