finally finished for PAINT PARTY FRIDAY...

My, An American Girl..a friend asked me to paint a girl riding a bike - hair blowing in the wind, and she added: oh yes, I like the American Flag!!!  So here is what I am sending her:  An American Girl....

In life's journey always take the Scenic Route
Hope she likes it!  I trust that each and everyone has had a Great Thanksgiving and is looking forward to a happy and safe holiday season!  Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting, especially at such a busy time of year!  It will take me all week, as always, to get through Paint Party Friday but it is always worth it!!!!
cheers, dana
ps We went to the Detroit Lions Thanksgiving game and came within 15 ft. of former Defensive-end for the Oakland/ LA Raiders....HOWIE LONG!!!!  My husband lovingly tolerated my craziness over it!!!!

p.s.s. should hit 55 today soooooooooooo one more ride before we put the bikes away for the long winter, it will be chilly but we'll be dressed for it and the sun is out!!!

Quick post for Paint Party Friday...

I have added a bit to my bicycle girl but will have to finish her when I return from KEY WEST, yes, in caps because I am screaming with excitement.  I never pack in advance but this trip is long over due and I have had my clothes laid out for 3 weeks... ready to go in the morning.

But, in my tiny sketch book that I carry around I have done a couple quickies that I can share, I hope to share some stuff from on the road but we'll see!!!!

First stop is Lauderdale to see my brother in his Hair & Massage Studio, Dean Allen's!!! 

Then Sugarloaf Key for 3 days then onto Key West for 4 days!!!!  Probably posting on facebook alot!!!!  If you care to join our journey!!!
