My Chilly Flamingo

“Once the ‘what’ is decided, the ‘how’ always follows. We must not make the ‘how’ an excuse for not facing and accepting the ‘what.'”
– Pearl S. Buck

Boy, isn’t that the truth!

My Chilly Flamingo

Watercolor & Ink

This little flamingo is modeling the new winter line.  I did put palm trees on her scarf, to make her feel at home.  😀

We are enjoying some amazing weather here in Oklahoma.  It is supposed to be in the 70’s today and tomorrow!   But…. Tuesday, the high is supposed to be 27.  **shiver**  I’m going to take advantage of this beautiful day and do graphics on store windows in Quinton.  Saturday, I hope to do my long cross country flight with my instructor.  YAY!!

About Pearl S. Buck

Prolific American author Pearl S. Buck is best known for her 1931 novel, The Good Earth, which depicted peasant life in China; the book, published by the John Day Company, won the Pulitzer Prize. She was born in West Virginia in 1892, but her missionary parents raised her in China. She and her first husband lived in China until 1934, when they had to flee the political strife. She later divorced and married John Day’s publisher, Richard Walsh, in 1935. In 1938, she became the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature. By the time of her death in 1973, she had published over 70 books, including collections of stories, poetry, and children’s literature.

    If you fly past Evansville Indiana, dip a wing for me… but just the wing! Be safe and have fun! What am I saying, anyone who puts legs warmers on a flamingo, is going to have fun!

    Well your just getting better and better at putting a smile on my face, Beth. I love this high fashioned Flamingo showing off her sexy legs! She sure knows how to dress to bring out her best features. lol.
    I’m am so jealous of the weather you are having. It’s still coooold here with a ton of snow recently pushed and now it is snowing again this morning. YUCK!
