T Stands for "Blarney"???

Are you here for the blarney? Or for T-day?.....or possibly both?
Blarney: noun
1. flattering or wheedling talk; cajolery.
2. deceptive or misleading talk; nonsense; hooey:
a lot of blarney about why he was broke.
verb (used with or without object), blarneyed, blarneying.
3. to flatter or wheedle; use blarney:
He blarneys his boss with the most shameless compliments.
Well here is a no blarney fact: it is time to once again join  Elizabeth and the T-gang, so why does "Betsy" look like she is entering WOYWW?  Well.......this is how I am starting this week......yep!  What a mess and only 1 cup of coffee, but I was on my way for a refill when I grabbed the camera and took this photo......"grin"  I couldn't possibly even begin on just one cup of coffee, especially on a Monday morning!!
So what's been happening around here?

Some of my flowers are blooming........................................
I went to an other "Paint" night and painted some flowers......better than the irises don"t ya think?

I found a painting on Pinterest that caught my eye and I used it for inspiration for this 16" x 20"........ it's a little blah, but I love the peacefulness of it, and find myself stopping to look at it quite often, as it is propped up on the mantel of the fireplace.
I like the 16" x 20" so well I painted this 20" x 36", but with a little more character to it, for over our bed....the sky needs lightened up quite a bit........didn't really notice until I took this photo of it.  That will be added to this week's "to-do" list. I do like the water and the sand area of the larger one better.  How say you? and please no "Blarney"....LOL
Inky Hugs


  1. Sorry, Krisha. I like the smaller one better, right down to wiggling my toes in the sand. And that's a big fete since I don't live anywhere near water.

    Yes, I like those flowers much better than the irises, which were not your fault, but the guest artist's.

    You won't find any blarney here. I'm just delighted you joined us for T this Tuesday with your coffee of course, your lovely art, and your blooming flowers.

  2. Love your flower and other paintings, really good. Glad you are having fun- happy T day, hugs, Valerie

  3. i´m with elizabeth... i think the smaller one is looking more "real", i suppose because of better contrast of the sections. but i think with a Little rework the other one could be transformed in that direction, too. my not-blarneys;)
    love the flowers, i think they turned out great and you may find a place to Hang them.
    happy t-day!!

  4. Your flowers are absolutely beautiful and what happy colours. I used to leave quite near the sea and now live in the middle of the countryside. Your paintings of the sea are both so beautiful and peaceful. I'd love to walk along your beautiful quiet beach. Barbxx

  5. Hi Krisha, the painting look great to me, the larger one needs something in the sky... clouds? a seagull or two? LOL Beautiful work, well done! Happy T Tuesday to you! Annette

  6. your flowers are just lovely Krisha but being a beach lover I am in love with your peaceful painting-just gorgeous!!! Happy painting and a happy T day too!

  7. Both of your beach paintings look beautiful and so blarney :-)
    You have Freesia growing in your garden!
    Be still my he♥rt!
    Your art space sure looks like a fun place.
    Happy T Day Krisha.

  8. You've been busy! I do like your latest flowers. The beach scenes are both great. I looked back and forth at them and I like the first one best. I think it has to do with the proportions of sky/sea/beach on the canvas - if that makes sense. There is a balance there to my eye that is not quite the same in the second one. Maybe vertical vs horizontal canvas. Oh dear, I'm getting way too clinical. LOL! Lets just say Good Job on both!

  9. I don't have any flowers blooming yet, so your photos are a welcome blessing. Thx! Happy T Tuesday :)

  10. Nope, no blarney from me. Great T post, and beautiful photos today. I'm glad someone else's work table looks like mine- and also, am loving the flowers-both painted and photos. Happy T day! Hugs-Erika

  11. Oh! I like your paintings!! And thats no blarney!! lol You should paint a canvas like the beach postcard you sent me..! Happy Tday my dear! Hugs! deb

  12. Gorgeous flower painting...and I agree the beach paintings are peaceful...yes, I do like the larger one best. I think it's the division of the space in the horizontal rectangle...and love those little white cap waves! happy T day!

  13. Love your flowers but I must say that the calming sea scenes are both beautiful! Look forward to seeing the large one when you have finished it! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. Great mug...nice and big!
    I really like the would look great in my bathroom. :)
    Happy T day!
