How in the heck did that happen!

Hello..
How are you doing?

I have had a fun week didn't get a whole lot done.
Just getting settled back into my daily routine after being gone..




Well as you know I just love taking photos..  Just like a lot of you!
It really does help me notice all the beauty out there in this
big old world we live in.
Here is a photo of a bougainvillea I took in CA.  I just love the
color. I have never seen this color before..


: : :



I did manage to get into my craft room a play with some paints..


Has this ever happened to you....   You start off making one thing....



And its all going well..  Your liking it..
And then all of a sudden you go a whole different way..



Yes there was a flower on here a moment ago..
It just didn't feel right!



So this is what I ended up with.  How in the heck did that happen..

I kinda like it!

I am linking up to 







Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!
I do appreciate all you kind comments.. 

I will see you in a day or so for 
Scavenger Hunt!!

Hugs, Linda

Very pretty canvas Linda! I am in awe of that bougainvillea - never, ever seen that color here on Mediterranean ground!

I love how you let it change! Sometimes, I have trouble when things don't work how I imagined, I just get stuck there.

I more than kinda like it Linda!
This is really beautiful!
That bougainvillea is wonderful too. It is so nice to see a different color. Here, ours are only pink and red.
Have a great weekend my friend.

You take beautiful photo's and I love how your canvas turned out. Have a good weekend.xxx

I have never seen that shade of bougainvillea! It is so unusual and beautiful. I love the butterfly layout you ended up with. The closest thing I can relate to that is sometimes I go out to photograph a particular thing or place and wind up with something totally different. Hope you have a great weekend!

TexWisGirl said...

your butterfly is gorgeous. as is that uniquely orange bougainvillea.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Great way your canvas turned out. Yes, I know those moments, too. I've a special "thing" in my head and a while later there's something different on my working desk ;)

Terry said...

Great canvas from start, to middle to finish! Yes, I have had total transformations from what started to how it finished! Love this! Have a fabulous weekend!

Anne said...

Awesome creation Linda! That happens to me all the time, I often change directions in the middle but as long as we are happy with the end result ,I guess that's art, or women LOL. Love that bouganvillia!

JKW said...

I love flowers, But. . . Butterflies are Free.. . I love the whole collage. Thanks for visiting, Blessings, Janet PPF

PaperPumpkin said...

Oh wow, gorgeous! I love the colors and your surprise art twist! And I agree with you on the bouganvilla: i usually just see pink flowers, never this! LOVE it. Thank you for sharing. Kath

Christine said...

it's so creative and beautiful, love it, although the flower was nice too!

hastingshall2 said...

Well, what a surprise, Linda! I kept scrolling back and forth to see where the flower had gone.(Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?) Anyway, I think I like the butterfly on this canvas better than the flower because of the text you've written. The music looks great and the colors so delicious.

I love how it flowered into a butterfly! Happy PPF!
PS I have never seen a bouganvilla that color.

Gloria said...

I love your butterfly. I have heard that when the monarch comes to visit one, that it is the spirit of a loved one now gone. I kind of like that thought. We do get some monarchs in our yard. Yours is beautiful. Nice job.

Simone said...

Love the canvas!...the photo of the bougainvillea is simply gorgeous, I had no idea they even came in that colour, but how fantastic do they look!! xx

Tracey Potter said...

That orange boganvillia is stunning, the colour is glorious. Your photo is amazing!

The butterfly image is striking, I love what you ended up with and seeing the progression. Thanks for sharing.

Happy PPF.

Catherine said...

Hope you are having a lovely weekend friend!

Rosie Kaplan said...

I like it too. Check out the butterfly effect. Its on my blog on the side.

Denni said...

Yes, changing from one thing to another happens a lot with me too. I love when that happens.
It did turn out lovely.

Lisa Graham Art said...

Hi Linda,
I have never seen Bouganvilla that color either...used to have a hot pink one, but they do not do well in Kansas. Or at least I don't think so...maybe it was just my poor skill at caring for the poor thing.

Your little art there is so sweet...love when things just turn out.

Is that Diana Krall I hear? Oh what wonderful music. Her Christmas CD is to die for FYI.

Kamana said...

this is such a cheerful piece of art.

Mary C. Nasser said...

Great painting and quote.
Love how the colors of your painting were inspired by the fall colors of your first photo posted, too. :)

Happy PPF!!
