This morning when I woke up, I discovered a ladybug perched on a foam flower magnet on my fridge. I have no idea how it got there, but I was certain that it was looking for something yummy to eat. I held out a strawberry for it to climb onto so I could put it outside, but it was terrified of the perspective of leaving its foam flower. So, I flicked it into a plastic cup (along with the strawberry) and took it outside where it could fly off on its own. I’d like to imagine that the ladybug flew off to some quaint little house where it is the pet to some mystical fairy…telling the fairy all about its mighty adventures in the house of fake flowers and forever grateful to the human that saved it.
Maybe it’s a folk fairy that lives there. Like the one I recently painted.
I decided to use pink…and yes, I know that’s a lot of pink. So before you think someone puked pepto bismol all over a canvas, keep in mind it’s for my daughter and she loves pink. And since this is for her new room in our new house, I figured I’d go for what she would like. And I’ll admit it…I love it, too! Yes, I’m a fan of pink…the color…and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I know some ladies who have little girls who refuse to be a pink fan because of the whole cliché of girls and pink. To each their own. My opinion? THEY ARE GIRLS. If they like pink, then they like pink…sobeit. Pink is a happy color, and I’m all for happiness!!
After all, some of the BEST quotes come from “pink” movies/shows:
“Sherlock” A Study in Pink:
“Try not to start a war before I get home – you know what it does to traffic.”
“Anderson, don’t talk…you lower the IQ of the entire street.”
Pink Panther (Inspector Clouseau):
[having stepped on and broken the violin] “Oh well, if you’ve seen one Stradivarius, you’ve seen them all.”
Pretty in Pink quote from Duckie:
“It’s called a sense of humor – you should get one – they’re nice.”
