What a delight you are! I'll make certain my friend Rose gets to see this painting of her porch. She will be honored that it inspired Fifi! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Oh I didn't realize you had a contest going on, I'll have to pay better attention, because I would love to be a winner!

Knitty said...

As always, I love your work. If I post a photograph of myself and you decide to "steal" it, would you please use artistic license and shave off many pounds? The gray (silver!) hairs don't bother me, I call them highlights. :)

Happy Blue Monday!

Oh Fifi, shame, shame for stealing those photos, but after seeing your paintings, I am sure you were forgiven. They are all very lovely.
Glad to hear you were cleared of all charges in that sketchbook incident. Now you can return to France whenever you wish ;)

Thanks, Fifi!

Jan said...

Very interesting Fifi! I popped over from Gollum's and enjoyed the interpretations. Someone said thanks for sharing your process...could you tell us again, are the sketches from the pictures or computer replicated? Great work, Jan (jjlmnaz on RMS)

Fifi Flowers said...

Jan...
These are paintings not computer processed... love painting inspiring photos!!! I think the process they are talking about it is that I visit fellow bloggers and "steal" their photos and turn them into paintings!
ENJOY!!!
Fifi
